Think About Drugs


Here is what people have said about Norm & Fred:

The performance's success, in my opinion, is its ability to disseminate information to students without making them feel that they are being preached to or patronized!
Eldon King, Principal, Bonne Bay Academy, NF

I left your show with tears in my eyes and a heart full of pride to have been involved in getting "NORM & FRED" to Shelburne.
Julia Murphy, President, Kin Club, NS

As you came to life and took the students through the eyes of your four characters, students were spellbound, amazed and moved by your many messages about drugs. As I looked across the eyes of the assembly, you moved, entertained, frightened...but most importantly, taught the realities of drugs and drug culture.
Tom O'Malley, Counsellor, NS

You talked to the students about drugs in a language they could understand. In fact you could hear a pin drop...
Marlene Bryenton, Lake Of Shining Waters, IODE, PEI

His unique drug and alcohol play combines facts and figures, lots of humour and more than a few dramatic doses of reality to get the audience thinking about drug use and its consequences.
Jean Kenny, Journalist, PEI

Some of our teachers commented that it was the best presentation they had ever seen on drugs. These comments came from veteran teachers.

On January 12, 2001, I saw the performance for the third time and it still brought tears to my eyes.

Your thoughts, your writing and your performance makes it a valuable resource by all who "Think About Drugs". This is a necessary purpose for all who value life and freedom.

Mr. Boyd Merrill's presentation was aggressive and powerful. Many students were moved to tears and walked away with a loud anti-drug message ringing in their ears.

The message you are putting forth to these young people is very much needed in today's society. I know you are making a difference in some lives.

The production was very realistic and passionate. It was discussed for days afterwards, not only at school but also in homes. It gave students a realistic view of what drugs can do to your life.
