The Hairspray musical is on tour and has arrived in St. Louis at the Fabulous Fox! It’s a must see and you definitely do not want to miss it while it’s in town. I attended opening night (press night) with not my normal date, but it was still a memorable time.

My husband is usually my date for the musical shows, but this time around he had a meeting. So I took our oldest son and it was the perfect activity for he and I to do together.

Is Hairspray Kid Friendly?

We had a blast and laughed hysterically all throughout this entertaining musical. Such great bonding time! But is Hairspray kid friendly? Keep in mind that my oldest is almost 14 so it was totally acceptable for him. I purposefully did not take my 10-year-old daughter to this particular show. Would much of the adult humor have gone over her head? Yes. However, I didn’t see many younger kids at the show at all.

I didn’t catch any swearing in the show so that was refreshing. Overall it was a rather clean musical in terms of adult content. Just a few moments of grabbing body parts and dialogue. It’s one that I think I would take my daughter to when she’s around 12, because I know she would really love the music and dancing.

Whether you take your kids to the show or not, the message is one that we most definitely need to talk with our kids about. Segregation is a horrible part of our history. Talk to your kids about the past, how wrong it was and how we should treat others. We must teach our children to be kind to everyone and to love.

Hairspray Musical

The Hairspray musical follows the popular movie rather closely. And I love that movie so much. It always brings back so many memories of my youth and this fun broadway musical did the same. I found myself tapping my toes and singing right along to the music. Singing to myself, of course. Silently. You do not want to hear me sing. Ha! But can I ever sing so powerfully to myself.

Hairspray on tour is a broadway musical that you absolutely have to experience. It’s a feel good story, with loads of talent, beautiful sets and costumery, and just such a great time!
