RATED P … FOR PARENTHOOD chronicles every stage of modern-day parenting, from conception to college, with giant doses of heart and humor.

A versatile cast takes the audience through the ups and downs of childrearing – from the sublime to the ridiculous – in a series of comic and musical vignettes.

Hilarious, fresh, and decidedly irreverent, RATED P provides all the wistful joy of childrearing … at a fraction of the cost of braces!

Cast size can be expanded depending on creative team requirements.

Rehearsal tracks for all of RATED P’s musical numbers are available for licensing.

Rated G alternatives to RATED P’s Rated R moments are available.

Opportunities to insert local flair and flavor into the RATED P script are available.
