Weird, I did not see the original news story yet  ... 

When I was in grade 9, we were encouraged to go to see the stage play
'Equus' by Peter Shaeffer, and the theater presenting it offered
significant discout for highschool students.

There is nudity in that play !   And other potentially objectionable
things like  insanity , violence, singing of television commercial
jingles, ..
