The Gaggle is the Mini Misfits’ anti-bullying play for young audiences K thru 6. It follows the story of a very unique and empowered girl named Phoebe. She is new to Guggenheim Academy and immediately has to deal with the meanest girl who ever lived, a bully named Stacey, not to mention her group of friends who call themselves The Gaggle. Stacey and her crew decide that they are going to bully the new girl, but little do they know what they are up against. Phoebe defends herself with wit, cunning, and guile. Guggenheim Academy will never be the same again. Truthfully acted, wonderfully written, and extremely relatable to its audience, The Gaggle is entertaining and profoundly effective in the ongoing battle with bullying.
