Abstract

An Encore Theatre musical revue by 9 senior citizens telling their stories to grade school children was challenged by a parent who objected to the references to sexual orientation of one of the troupe members and the revealing of another that she was sexually molested. Both parent and troupe members were quite shaken by the response to the revue and the subsequent responses from the community.
