Rise Up!

Rise Up!

Rise Up! is an energetic presentation for elementary students that teaches character education in a fresh new format… an interactive talk show!


RISE UP! will help support your school in creating a caring, cooperative and safe community. Students practice character-building skills by helping hosts Sonny and Joy resolve conflicts in a fun 45-minute show!

Each performance of Rise Up! focuses on a specific topic such as:

  • Choices
  • Self Worth
  • Joking
  • Friendship
  • & many more.

Single show productions are available; however we recommend booking a performance series, allowing students to engage in a wide range of character building themes while developing relationships with our hosts, Sonny & Joy. Audiences and characters build connections from show to show that help students become Peaceful People.

The Rise Up! team is on hand to help your school select shows to create an effective program package.

Rise Up! is most effective as a series and can come to your school three times a year over many years. For year one, schools will receive the first series of three shows which will help to introduce the format and characters.

These three show topics will be:

  1. CHOICES
  2. SELF-WORTH
  3. MAKING JOKES & STAYING FRIENDS

After the first year, Peaceful Schools will work with your school to select show topics that will best serve your community and specific school needs.

Show topics to choose from include:

  • ACCOUNTABILITY
  • CARING
  • COOPERATION
  • COURAGE
  • DIVERSITY
  • HONESTY
  • JEALOUSY
  • KINDNESS
  • PATIENCE
  • RESPECT/RESPONSIBILITY
  • TRUST
  • And many more!
