What is DIRT?:

  • Dirt is a one-man show that explores the challenges and decisions that young people face every day. Dirt gets to the heart of issues related to drugs, bullying, and self-esteem in a manner that resonates with audiences in a real and meaningful way.
  • The purpose of the program is to assist parents/caretakers to empower children in making healthy and responsible choices. Children will be shown the impact they have on every individual they meet.
