Cheap Thrills
Student Wellbeing Program


Educational theatre that tackles the consequences of risk taking and substance abuse.

This fast paced one man show is about that split second when we reach a crossroad, make a choice, and possibly change our lives forever.

Andy and his friends drink alcohol, smoke cannabis and are confused by the hormones racing around their bodies. This dangerous cocktail explodes into one dramatic incident resulting in the loss of their mate Jamie.

Video of his sister Phoebe smoking and getting drunk ends up on YouTube. His dad drowns his sorrows in alcohol, mum pops painkillers to handle stress and his girlfriend has access to ecstasy.

After a lively discussion the audience leaves the venue with a deep understanding of how their choice of friends and their ability to make good decisions has a dramatic and lasting effect on their lives.
