Tobacco Education Assembly: The
Night Harry Stopped Smoking
The Night Harry Stopped Smoking is the
story of Harry McGlaughlin’s dream. One night
after finishing his last cigarette of the day,
Harry falls asleep and dreams he is transported to
a very dirty place with strange creatures living
in it. When he asks them where he is, they tell
him he has awakened inside his own lung.
While in his lung, Harry meets two nerve cells,
two ciliary cells, and a group of alveoli (four of
which are played by students selected from the
audience). They explain to Harry that smoking has
made it impossible for them to do their jobs.
After swimming through his blood vessels to visit
his heart, “Pumper”, Harry begins to realize that
all the parts of his body work very hard to keep
him healthy. He decides that it is his job to help
them by never smoking another cigarette.
The Night Harry Stopped Smoking is
appropriate for grades 2-6.
"From the moment the
presentation started, we knew that we had hit a
home run! The students as well as the staff
members were all captivated by the performers
and the message that they were delivering."
