Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Discovery Middle School is fighting bullying with humor.

Today, these sixth graders got a taste in acting by putting on a play called "Don't Look at Me." Anyone who tried out made the cut and as you can see a lot of students were interested in working against bullying.

Each scene demonstrated how to overcome a problem with other students. And the director says he thinks the message will work.

Bill Lucas, Instructor: "Do I hope they got something today? Yes. But do I feel like eight, nine, ten years, when they are an adult, because there is a lot of bullying in the adult work force. So, they will see, you know, that's what that was about. That's why they were telling that. But I wanted to be light hearted and fun because a whole serious show, for a half an hour, I didn't think it would work."

The students also had a lot of input in the script. You can catch the play, tomorrow, at seven at the Discover Middle school. It is free to the public.
