FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN PLANNING TO AUDITION:
This is not a children’s show. It is an adult play with adult themes such as teenage pregnancy and death. Children’s scenes contain topics such as playing at pretending to have babies and talking about ‘the curse’. If you have any concerns then please read a script before the audition to make sure you would be happy for your child to take part in the show. They will be well looked after but it may not be a suitable play for every child.
