Crash Bash 2014

FYI - Crash Bash 2014

Crash Bash is a road safety education programme targeted at secondary school students (years 10-13). The initiative uses a stage performance to raise awareness of the risks associated with driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and peer pressure.

Key take-out messages to the targeted teenage audience are about the consequences of making poor choices which can have a life-long impact as a result of a crash.

Crash Bash is toured and performed annually by graduates from CPIT’s National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art School (NASDA). The cast develop a script and choreographed the show using an effective mix of contemporary drama and music.

The road show theme is changed yearly to reflect new information from key stakeholders including Police, Students Against Driving Drunk (SADD) and a school advisory group. This information may draw on real life case studies and current substance and driving trends affecting young people.

Crash Bash key messaging supports one of the goals of the Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan to create safe healthy liveable communities. This is achieved by adopting the safe system approach to road safety, aligned to the national strategy Safe Journeys.

Crash Bash Tour 2014

Titled “Gutted”, this year’s production focuses on the long-term effects of road crashes caused by the combination of driving and substance use.

“Gutted” follows the story of make believe character “Lance”, who crashes when driving home after a friend’s birthday. The crash results in the death of his best friend Tom.

Fast forward a few years and Lance still finds himself paying the price of killing his best friend. Throughout the performance he struggles to regain social normality with the hope of seeking redemption and reconciliation.

Lance’s struggle highlights the personal consequences of a bad choice made earlier in life.

School Involvement

This year’s road show will reach 14,000 Canterbury teenagers with performances scheduled across several schools.
