Crisis Centre Public Service Announcement – Youth In BC Multi Voice Dialogue: A mixed blend of voices ranging from boy to girl, all ages fitting the 13-18 age range Concept: A mixed dialogue of insults that focus on bullying and negativity. All the voices blend together over a common dialogue shared between the voices. The voices continue being negative and building in volume and clutter and eventually stop all at once. Silence turns into a single voice speaking a single positive thought. Announcers’ voice comes in. Talking about all the negativity etc… Tag line, contact- end. [SFX- Soft Music, building with anticipation and climax as the voices are added and the script progresses- Music cuts off with the voices] Voice 1:

Look at you, worthless, pathetic, no wonder you don’t have any friends I bet you go around thinking that everyone likes you when in fact they don’t. If you’re thinking it has something to do with how you look you’re probably right.

Voice 2:

Friends? Ya I bet they’d be nice to have. I’m sure if you didn’t go around being yourself you could have some friends and be just like me.

Voice 3:

If you didn’t come from that place you call a home you would be better then you are.

Voice 4:

Pathetic, worthless, invisible, a loser, a loner you matter to know one.

Voice 5:

I better not see you around here again. Otherwise you will have to answer to me.

Voice 6:

Me and you, right here right now.

*Silence* Voice 7: Announcer:

You matter to me. Through all the negativity it’s hard to hear the positive. For more information on where you can get help and be heard visit Call, Chat, And Connect. Be heard. Get Help
