Beaufort High School drama students are taking their original play on the road again.

The students will perform their anti-bullying play, "If You See Something, Say Something," to a regional Rotary conference in North Carolina.

Last month, the students performed the play -- which is a collection of skits aimed at encouraging students to intervene when they witness bullying -- at an Eastern South Carolina Rotary conference in Myrtle Beach. At that event, they participated in a question and answer session and discussed with attendees how the show might serve as a model for statewide Rotary programs.

Several local Rotary groups -- Hilton Head, Van Landingham, Sunset, Bluffton, Beaufort, Sea Island and Lowcountry -- are helping pay for the students' trip to the Zone 33 Rotary Peace Symposium in Chapel Hill, N.C. Rotarians from South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virgina, Tennessee, Delaware, Maryland and the District of Columbia are expected to attend.

The group performed the show for sixth-graders in the school district earlier this school year.
