When Push Comes to Shove, on tour
for the 2016-2017 School Year!


Welcome to greenville elementary!

     In our very own Greenville, it seems as though Jared and his friends are on track to have a great year in Miss Finkelstein's 3rd grade class...until Jessie arrives with the force to derail it all!  How will Jared and his friends deal with this new dynamic?  What's to decide...When Push Comes to Shove?

     When Push Comes to Shove, Trust Your Gut Productions' inaugural project, is a 45-minute musical with a pop/rock score geared for children grades K-6.  Followed by a Talk-Back, WPC2S opens up the discussion about bullying between students, their peers, and those whom they trust.  A team of five professionally trained actor/educators will come to your child's school, community center, or other organization and help open their minds to the many ways negative behavior affects us all.
