In this powerful mime & music presentation, Scot Cannon begins in make up and brings the audience through a series of fast paced skits. On the surface it seems simply to be a fun, entertaining, engaging show.
The program shifts dramatically when Scot removes his make-up, breaks his mime silence, and speaks to the audience about acceptance of people despite our differences.
Using his own experiences with a childhood speech problem as a springboard, Scot explains that a kind word, an extra moment spent or a simple wave can change a bad day for someone - and that those simple things can sometimes be a defining moment and be remembered for a lifetime.
Scot uses the skits he performed to strengthen his simple message of kindness, and finishes with a five-minute mime class for the audience, to further reinforce his program.
This is a Character Education program focusing on bullying, tolerance, acceptance and compassion.
