G-Rated: A Puppet Show Musical

March 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Multiple performances available

Iron Mountain Theatre presents G-RATED – A Puppet Show Musical in the Muriel Griffiths Room of The Bailey Theatre.

Intended for students aged 10-13, two performers will work seven colourful puppets in this 60 minute show. G-rated is a musical puppet show about puberty, identity, confidence, LGBTQ2SIA, boundaries and consent. 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.

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. (Designed for touring schools; a full study guide is available to help prepare the audience for the subject matter pre-show and continue the conversation in the classroom post performance.)


The cast and creators of G-Rated are puppeteers/singer/theatre artists Nadine Tremblay and Phil Loosley. Both live, work and play in the West Kootenays on the traditional unceded territory of the Sinixt People.

Combining puppetry, musical theatre and improv, this team of two have performed and toured Western Canada with their original musicals for all ages. Their work with youth include workshops, private lessons, full scale musicals, choir direction, the infamous Game Show Show and curriculum based arts education in schools with Learning Through the Arts. Nadine 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.”

Script co-written by Almeda Glenn Miller and Nadine Tremblay, music by Nadine Tremblay, directed by Almeda Glenn Miller.
