I grew up watching Monty Python as did alot of people of my generation. the repeats were constantly on PBS. this show is fine for a 12 year old.

Can I say both?

At 12, I was forbidden to watch anything higher than PG. Film or theatre.

Monty Python is not for children under the age of 16.

How old are you now? Not all parents care. That's just the way it is. I'm not saying that all kids are corrupt, but when was the last time you where in a middle school or high school actually talking to kids? Anyways back on subject, it's fine for a 12 year old.

Well...fine for a 12 yr old if you for get the rampent sex scene, the graphic murder AND the pot smoking....




























OH! Someone could have told me this was the SPAMALOT forum...i thought this was HAIR! Though quite where the murder is in that...although Vietnam could be considered as murder...but thats opening a whole new can of worms!

Back to the point! It's fine for a 12yr old.

I don't know how much they'll appreciate it, though. It's Monty Python. Most of the verbal humour will miss them. The physical stuff though, and the coconuts, they'll enjoy.

I saw it on broadway about 2 months ago, it was marvelous. It's typical Monty Python humor, there were several families around me and noone seemed to have any problems. Don't worry about it :)

Oh, please! I'm under 16 and I've been watching the film, for a while now, and I've just found out about Spamalot, so I've been listening to that a lot. If the 12-year old is mature enough to handle the film, then I'm sure she can see the show, I'd say go for it!

I think this depends on the maturity of the child. I'm thirteen. I've seen RENT, The Producers, Avenue Q and my mom wants to take me to Spamalot (but I want to see Les Mis instead.) Has it messed me up more than any of my friends? No. However, I've seen all of those mature musicals within the last year.

It depends on the actual 12-year old. I wouldn't take some 18-year olds I know to see Spamalot because they don't act mature enough. I know adults that shouldn't see Spamalot. It's not the age, it's the maturity.

Besides, chances are she's already seen everything in Spamalot and then some more.

Yep, I agree. It all about how mature the person is. I'm just one-year older the Eponine93, and I've seen RENT and the Producers (the films) as well.

"Maturity" is just a state of mind. Nothing more, nothing less.

Well, looks like we got a philosopher on this board.
