It’s not just a highly engaging circus themed school show!  And it’s not a normal character education school assembly.  While most character ed assemblies focus only on defining character traits and explaining how to use those traits, Diversity Circus goes much deeper.  This powerful and proven-effective character assembly will teach your students that every person belongs.

“Be Fair, Be Aware, include others, and use Respect” are the four lessons students will learn during the Diversity Circus character education school assembly. This proven-effective elementary character education program also covers Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s character message, Cultural Diversity, Diversity in the Classroom, Being Fair, and more. It’s a perfect program to honor the MLK Holiday, Black History Month, and to support your school’s PBIS program and anti-bullying efforts.

The Diversity Circus character school show uses TONS of audience participation, hilarious comedy, kooky characters, costumes, incredible one-of-a-kind magical illusions, and non-stop hysterical action to engage students and to keep kids talking long after the show is over.

A lion, a mouse, and a giant chicken help teach the diversity lessons taught by Smudgy the Clown as well as the ringmaster’s assistant sidekick. Your students will identify with and relate to Smudgy as the comic relief during this wacky four-act circus assembly show.  One of your students will become the World’s Strongest Student, another student will be made half-way invisible. And two more students will magically change and transform into each other while dressed up and acting on stage.  Your entire school will be laughing so much, your students won’t even realize they’re learning!

Diversity Circus Origin Story

Doug Scheer is the presenter and creator of the Diversity Circus School Assembly, as well as two other phenomenally popular Character Education Assemblies titled Mystery of the Character Surprise and Les Trouble PI.

At the age of three years old, Doug’s son was diagnosed with Autism. As their family life took a dramatic left turn, Doug focused on making acceptance a primary lesson into one of his circus school assembly programs. Thus, the Diversity Circus character education school show was born.

Though he doesn’t share this story as a part of his programs, Doug created the Diversity Circus character education assembly program as part of his personal passion for spreading to the world the message of acceptance, as well as an understanding of everyone.  Not just for his son, but for all students who are judged as different.
