Post Appropriate for a mature 12 year old?
I heard that this was a really funny musical and was wondering if it would be appropriate for my 12 year old sister.

I was originally debating between this or Wicked, but Wicked is sold out and I just saw some discounted tickets for this. Of course, I could always go with another musical, but I have no idea what. I'm not too keen on seeing a Disney musical.

Thanks in advance!

I don't see a problem with the show. If she's seen a Monty Python movie, than she's ready for Spamalot. ;)

(My 12-year-old brother has seen/heard it, and it didn't screw him up).

I don't see anything wrong with a "gay scene" unless they are having sex on stage, which I doubt. Hand jobs, huh? Can you actually see them doing that or is it implied? If it's implied, I'm sure the 12 year old wouldn't understand have the sexual implications.

I'n sure that the 12 year old has seen/heard/or done worst than that. You can only keep a kid sheltered for so long and nowadays thats age of "innocence" is becoming younger and younger.

Should be fine for a 12 year old. It is pretty much just like the original movie minus the spanking girls.

Definitely a mature twelve-year-old should be fine. My ten-year-old cousin (also mature) went to see it and loved it.

I'd say for a mature 12 year old the show wouldn't a be a problem at all.

My 12 year old sister saw it, and she had no problems. Of course, she has seen the film and has grown up in a Monty Python family.
