Brookfield students learn about empathy, bullying through Climb Theatre interplay

As stories about bullying in schools, on school buses and on playgrounds circulate nationwide, a Minnesota-based theater teamed up with two Elmbrook schools to teach young children ways to prevent it from happening.


Climb Theatre presented 40-minute empathy interplays for all of the students at Brookfield and Burleigh elementary schools last week, meant to show students what it’s like to be on the receiving end of bullying.
