G-Rated is a musical puppet show about puberty, identity, confidence, LGBTQ2SIA, boundaries and consent. Intended for students aged 10-13, two performers will work seven colourful puppets in this 60 minute show. The show gently introduces these themes in an approachable medium with relatable characters and catchy tunes. The overall aim is to introduce basic language to start conversations around topics that require some finesse. Original songs like ‘The Awkward Song,’ ‘Be Kind to Yourself,’ and ‘I’m Trying on Identities’ are written and performed in a modern, musical theatre style.
Show Creator Nadine Tremblay explains, "Our initial aim with this show was to fill an identified gap in West Kootenay education around sex and healthy relationships, something that was being avoided by educators and parents alike. Turns out that this medium (puppets and songs) is ideal for addressing a topic that can be uncomfortable for some to talk about and potentially challenging for students to absorb."
By the end of the show students, educators and parents will have a basic language for fostering healthy relationships including boundaries, friendships, sexual preference, and self-care.
