Why breakdown Tucson?

Here’s what people are saying about us!

“It was our honor to have [breakdown Tucson]! Participants of the [SSWAAZ] conference were buzzing about the amazing show all day long!”-Emily Phares, School Social Work Association of Arizona President


“Informative fact slides, great entertainment and innovative way to present information to teens… Kept students attention with interesting, relevant acting and dance.”- Catalina Magnet Student Success Specialist


“The group I was sitting with, myself [included] enjoyed it so much.  The presentation was so accurate with how life is right now for teens…[It was] Extremely relevant.  I feel like I could point out my friends (peers) in the performance.”- Catalina Magnet Student


“You guys are at Sahuaro high with me RIGHT NOW and you all have changed my life FOR THE BETTER. Thank you so much I LOVE YOU!!”- FB message from Sahuaro High School Student


“What a fabulous performance and message! Every young person should get the opportunity to see this!!! Nice job!” -Tiffany Werner, Coronado High School Social Worker, Scottsdale, AZ


“As the Director of a Pregnancy Center I have seen too many teens having to make grown up decisions because of an unexpected pregnancy. The message that breakdown provides encourages and challenges young people to wait and to avoid the hardships that can come from raising a child as a teenager.”-Cindi Buller, Central Center Director, Hands of Hope Tucson



“I saw my first breakdown show while I was still attending college at the University of Arizona and I was SO impressed and moved by it. Finally, there is a group of young people willing to be honest about the struggles and pressures our generation has to face, and they are passionate about empowering young people to fight for their lives. I graduated from Sabino High School 4 years ago and I wish that my peers and I could have seen a breakdown show during that time. I truly believe it would have transformed our campus.”- Recent U of A Grad.


“The first moment I saw breakdown I knew right then this was the culture I had always hoped for. My first thought when I saw the message was “I wish they would have come to my school.” Although I can’t look back I can always advocate for the younger generation who are now facing the same issues. breakdown has a real message for real teenagers, they simply need to be at every school.”- Community Outreach Activist



“As a mother of five, I understand how difficult it can be for a teenager to overcome the temptations they are bombarded with day in and day out. I am so grateful that my kids have been able to see Breakdown perform. Seeds of hope have been planted and I know that the young people on stage are making a difference! Every school should embrace this message and take advantage of this amazing FREE resource!”- Feedback of our show from a parent


“The breakdown experience is a must for our city’s high school youth! After experiencing the show again this month, I realized how vital their message is for our schools. As a nurse manager of a (prenatal) clinic, I listen to the stories of many of our city’s young women who have lived the realities that breakdown portrays. Addressing the topics of suicide, cutting, STDs, pregnancy, date rape, alcohol and drug misuse is only the beginning. Where the breakdown performance shines is focusing on the individual student. The performance is so personal, any student will find themselves relating to the actors as they are reminded they are not alone and they can make better choices. The team masterfully weaves dance, drama, relevant music, video, personal stories and actual facts together in a powerful show that reminds the students they have value. This is a show that will empower every student who is privileged to experience it. With gratitude for The breakdown Team.”- Elizabeth Hildebrandt, RN, Manager of Patient Care, Hands of Hope
