HI REZ COMES TO EARTH Years 1-4
Hi Rez Comes to Earth is a 40-minute show for children in years R-3 that deals with the issue of
INCLUSION. It's a story-based performance that teaches children to be respectful towards others
and open to the idea of including new and different people in their activities.
The story goes like this:
Hi Rez is a purple space alien who comes to Earth on instructions from his planet elders. Hi Rez has
only been playing with other purple aliens and has been ignoring all the aliens of other colours, even
other aliens who are light purple! So his assignment is to visit Earth to find out about INCLUSION.
Upon arrival, Hi Rez meets a young school girl named Jessie who has been excluded from one of the
clubs at school because her clothes are out of fashion.
Jessie and Hi Rez become friends and she teaches Hi Rez the positive benefits of being receptive
to new people and new ideas. And Hi Rez helps her understand the importance of being persistent
and standing up for yourself, especially when she really wants to do something, like join the hip hop
club! Together, Jessie and Hi Rez also work out that it's OK to have your own group of friends and
that not everyone can be part of every group (to play football, you have to be able to play football!).
It's just that when someone is being left out, then that's not right.
It takes a while for the student body to get used to the fact that Hi Rez is purple, but his arrival works
for the positive, and everyone ends up learning a new, inclusive approach to social interaction.
Together with recruits from the audience, Jessie and Hi Rez play a game of musical chairs. Hi Rez
feels left out when he's the the odd man out. So Jessie and the student volunteers replay the game,
only this time Jessie adds a chair instead of taking one away. This allows everyone to sit down,
including a new person from the audience!
