PG-13 Players are peer educators from high schools in the Nashville area.

Through their dramatic presentation of original skits, teen issues are not just talked about—they’re brought to life!

Contact our Community Health Educator at 615.345.0952 for more information about the PG-13 Players!

Who Are the PG-13 Players?

The PG-13 Players are young people from across Middle Tennessee who are passionate about sexual health, advocacy, and theatre! Each year they receive training that equips them with skills to be peer educators. They then put these skills to work by creating an original skit that addresses issues facing young people today. Through their interactive performances, teen issues are not just talked about—they are brought to life!

What Happens During a Players Performance?

The program begins with a performance of the PG-13 Players’ original skit. Each character faces different situations rooted in the lived experience of young people. Unlike a typical theatrical performance, this skit ends without a resolution. That’s because the characters need the audience’s help to decide what to do next! By exploring the motivations, feelings, and choices of the characters, the audience helps the characters make responsible decisions while beginning to build the skills needed to deal with real life situations. The goal of the PG-13 Players is to not give out easy answers, but to explore options and increase sensitivity in dealing with real-life situations.

What Topics Do the PG-13 Players Talk About?

Each year the PG-13 Players address several issues they see impacting the lives of their peers with the hope of creating healthier, safer communities. These topics can be tough to talk about, but the PG-13 Players believe that all teens deserve the knowledge and resources to make the best decisions they can. Past topics have included: healthy relationships, sexual decision making, social media, LGBTQ+ issues, and more!

How can I schedule a performance?

The PG-13 Players can come to your school, place of worship, community center, or agency. To schedule a performance, contact the Community Health Educator at 615.345.0952. A fee of $200 is requested for a performance; however, special rates may be negotiated.

How can I join the PG-13 Players?

Open auditions are held each spring for dedicated high school students wishing to join the PG-13 Players; no drama experience is necessary. Training takes place during the summer and the performance season begins in September. Keep an eye out here for audition information!

PG-13 Players receive financial support from The National Council of Jewish Women, Nashville Section and the Music City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
