Rating systems and recommendations can sometimes be difficult to understand. Different people feel differently about the definitions of “adult language” and “adult situations.” In an effort to make things clear and enjoyable for all of our patrons, we have instituted a new ratings system.
Many of you have asked why we don’t use the rating systems of R or PG-13. Unfortunately, that rating system was copyrighted by the MPAA, and we are not allowed to use it. Many have also asked why we do not cut offensive language or situations out of the script altogether. When we select a script and enter into a royalty agreement, we are also agreeing to produce the script exactly as written. We are not allowed to alter the playwright’s script.
We hope that our new rating system will help you make informed decisions about the productions that you want to see. If you have any questions about the system or a production, please contact the Box Office directly at 763-422-1838 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
