How would you build the plant? Isn't it a puppet?

Yes, but "build"? I don't understand, what materials is it made out of?

Foam rubber?

I figured....."build" just seemed like the wrong word to use. But okay.

Getting back to the original topic, some parents are so conservative that they could find something objectionable in just about any musical. Even Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has the scene with Potiphar's wife. The only shows I can think of that are so clean that no sane person could find anything objectionable in them whatsoever are Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and High School Musical.

I think this may be why my daughter has decided to direct a cabaret each fall at the high school where she teaches. It allows her to choose her favorite songs from more current musicals.

That's actually a really good idea. It's probably a lot less of a hassle not having to worry about licensing and stage craft and what have you.

A lot of musicals have adult themes in them. Fame has drug themes, Grease has teen pregnancy themes, hell - even Oliver! has Bill physically abusing the hell out of Nancy to the point where she dies. It really depends on the school.

All the shows that my school does are geared towards families, but in my community, people seem to take appropriate-ness to the extreme. Last year we did "Crazy for You", and some of the lines were changed minimally and some swearing taken out. Our rival high school did "Pippin", and left in all the swearing, sexual jokes, and even showed the kid playing Pippin rolling around on a bed with some chick, so I really think what's appropriate depends on the school.


Agreed...community standards are a tricky thing...it only takes one loud voice in opposition to sound like an army of dissent...
