The Grit Game Show has been one of our most popular performances ever! Students love the high-energy, interactive format. Educators appreciate our rich content and focus on student achievement.
GRIT 2 is an all-new version of the program. The interactive design and achievement emphasis remain the same, but the content and games are completely new. In GRIT 2, we highlight ways that tweens can achieve their goals by investing time, skills, and money. Student volunteers will compete in these onstage activities.
Money may not buy happiness, but it does help us reach many of our dreams. Do your students have enough grit to earn the cash they’ll need for the lifestyle they want? Tweens will explore what it takes to rent an apartment, buy a car, and afford life’s little luxuries, like eating.
Different paths in life require different abilities, but there are some skills that will help you achieve virtually any goal — things like teamwork, organization, and communication. In this competition, contestants will be paired up to show off their Mad Skills. But watch out — if the teammates’ answers don’t agree, they won’t earn any points!
In this round, it’s science fair time! How will our contestants balance the demands of everyday life with the requirements of a huge school project? The more time students carve out to work on the science fair, the better they’ll do in the game. But beware: if you cut the wrong item from your schedule (like sleeping), things won’t turn out well.
“Action Plan” isn’t a game — it’s a short talk, about ten minutes long, that finishes every performance. We’ll challenge your students to take action on an important academic goal today.
“The Grit Game Show was an extremely engaging and interactive program that kept our students hanging on to the edge of their seats! In the weeks and months after the program, I was able to witness many situations where students used the knowledge and skills communicated through the program to help solve their own problems. I highly recommend this very practical and useful program!”
– Kevin Weihe, Guidance Counselor, Lebanon Junction Elementary School (Lebanon Junction, KY)
“The Grit Game Show was exciting, fun for kids, and relevant! Every student was engaged and participating — even the teachers were a part of the game! The only thing I wish I had done differently was bring Drama By George to our school earlier! The closing piece that focused on the Growth Mindset really resonated with all of our students. Thank you to Drama by George for the great experience!
– Jackie Duvall, FRYSC Coordinator, Painted Stone Elementary School (Shelbyville, KY)
“An incredibly engaging performance by Drama by George on GRIT! The Stopher kids loved it and learned a ton about tenacity.”
– Tamara Hedrick, Teacher, Stopher Elementary School (Louisville, KY)
Host George Halitzka will equip your students with tools they can use to achieve their goals, in school and in life! Let us invest in your students with a performance of GRIT 2.
