PROGRAM

Using original music, drama, mime, special effects, and vaudeville, this compelling autobiographical theatre production (complete with scenery, costumes and props) explores alcoholism, drug dependency, eating disorders, teen suicide, and self-destructive attitudes. Rick Adam's effective performance touches the heart while tickling the funny bone, as he offers tools for solving problems, making healthy choices, and building self-esteem.

At the age of 14, Rick Adam weighed 229 pounds, had a 46-inch waist, and lived in an addicted and dysfunctional family. How he learned to cope with these problems and overcome his own drug addiction and negative internal messages makes thought-provoking and compelling theatre.

By creating a skillful and exciting theatrical experience, while connecting emotionally with the audience through his true story, Rick's messages hit home, successfully affecting the thoughts and behaviors of his audience. Throughout the program, Rick teaches and encourages creative problem-solving, avoiding negative behaviors, personal goal setting, making healthy choices, avoiding peer pressure, and developing a positive self-image.

Substance abuse, eating disorders, and teen suicide are among the most important issues facing teenagers today. Rick's story of becoming a drug-free, nationally recognized performer provides an inspiration for all students by showing that it is possible to overcome obstacles and live happy, healthy lives.
