Important Information Regarding The Gingerbread House
The Gingerbread House is a contemporary script that examines issues of parenthood, femininity and the natural world within a capitalist society. The script and production are intended for adults and contain content for a mature audience. This includes nudity, adult language and violent images. We have chosen to add the element of the children’s chorus to enhance the story telling and meaning of the script. Every effort will be made to minimize children’s exposure to this content.
As with all of our actors, it is our goal that chorus members and their families have a fun and positive experience while working with Red Tape. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. To obtain a copy of the script, please contact Casting Director Paige Sawin.
