The active participation of the students was the preponderant note of the performance, which focused on the danger of the excesses of alcohol or consumption


Getting Straight Through

Getting Straight Through offers information about the risks of inadequate consumption.   From the evaluations carried out in the schools, it can be deduced that "The young people participated with enthusiasm, and not only had a good time but also reflected on the consumption of alcohol.

"The actor (Peter Roberts) captures the attention of the students from the first moment, interacts with them in a playful and close way, making them more receptive to messages and metaphors about the effects and consequences of alcohol consumption.
All this is done mixing theater, mime and magic with the result of a very enjoyable and fun performance with a clear and concise message about the effects of alcohol abuse "
Kyny Mesones
Social Educator of SSAP nº. 8
"The evaluation of the work is very positive, quickly engages with young people. The subject of prevention is treated with humor from the certainty of the data and the seriousness that the subject of alcohol abuse implies. A great work, great and ingenious, that reaches the kids and that leaves no one indifferent. Greetings and thanks for everything
Program Coordinator,
"Excellent, even in performances with large groups the attention and participation of the spectators was spectacular. It establishes the knowledge about what alcohol is and what consequences can be had of its consumption. Solves very well the part of personal decision making, with a viewer who participates in showing in a funny, magical way the importance of choosing responsibly, or as it is said in the work with two fingers of the front and without being manipulated "
Rosa Mª Delegido García.
Coordinator of the Municipal Commission for Drug Addiction and Other Addictive Behaviors
City Council of Petrer.

"The climate has been very favorable, the participation of the appropriate students and the activity has been valued very positively by the students and the teachers who have attended. The contents on prevention of alcohol consumption have been treated objectively and with a message that reaches young people with great ease. "

The Mime Theater "invites you to participate in “Getting Straight Through”.

It is a primary prevention resource

In which, everyday situations are developed to favour critical reflexion in young people, adapting the preventive message to a suggestive and attractive language.


They will be able to laugh and get excited, as well as thinking about their relationship with alcohol.


Getting Straight Through (GST), which raises awareness about alcohol consumption, is aimed at students in Compulsory Secondary Education and Post-compulsory from 12 to 18 years..

It is a primary prevention resource for raising awareness and awareness of the true risk that alcohol abuse entails.


It is a show of mime, magic and different mood that encourages the participation of the public. It arrives, through art, directly to the emotional consciousness of the students.

It can be carried out in schools or theaters.

The communication of the primary prevention message has a lot to do with the actor's ability to create a dynamic and versatile space that is molded to the spontaneous circumstances of each event. It is action; reaction and interaction to be a live, different, innovative, close and very direct prevention resource.

The effect is a program that is very impactful and positive as a way to open a debate with students about the abuse of alcohol and the harm it causes.


Encourage critical reflection on excessive alcohol consumption, through the representation of everyday situations.

Recognition of the cause-effect relationship between the abusive consumption of alcohol and certain socio-health problems.

Promote the prevention of risks associated with alcohol consumption.

Communication strategies.

GST investigates around the possibilities of verbal and nonverbal communication and the staging of the artist, as well as the ability of the show, to draw the attention of young people and warn them about the associated personal, family and social risks to the consumption of alcohol.

For this purpose, it was decided to use a novel methodology that approaches the language of young people in an effective way and that captures their attention more effectively.

In parallel, the prevention resource Mimarte has a guide for teachers that allows the teaching team to choose, select and even compose their worksheets that complete the action plan.

Regarding the ongoing evaluation of Getting Straight Through, there is an evaluation questionnaire and young people are invited to fill it out at the end of each session.

This allows us to assess the show and the results for the continuous improvement of the Project.

The following table summarizes part of the results, in averages, of 2159 participants in 56 representations during 2016,
