We’ve been humming (and craving) “Popcorn” since Saturday and according to the reviews, we aren’t the only ones (looking at you Emerald City Kids). Last weekend, we kicked off the first (and second) show in our rip-roaring good fun series, In Tents with Recess Monkey. The show was not only a smashing success, it was sold out!
Here is just a taste of some of the juicy reviews:
“In Tents, the new show for kids at Teatro ZinZanni, is irresistibly good fun, thanks to the trio Recess Monkey and acrobat Saffi Watson, among others.”
“The music was accompanied by fun performances from some of the Teatro ZinZanni performers and included some seriously impressive contortions, a performing “bear”, some great juggling (my son’s favorite part!), dancing and more!”
You can catch a glimpse of some of this monkey business tomorrow morning on Q13 Fox Morning News. Don’t miss your chance to rock out with Recess Monkey and some of their friends. The concert series continues throughout the summer: Saturday 5/12, Saturday 5/19, Saturday 6/2, Saturday 6/23, Sunday 6/24, Saturday 7/14, and ends Sunday 7/15.
Jack from Recess Monkey and Oscar (his son and champion phone commander) dropped by the tent to plan out an upcoming series, In Tents.
What, you don’t know of In Tents?
Allow us to explain (and if you know about it, feel free to skip down to the photos below; Oscar looks wicked cute). A few weeks ago, kindiependent band Recess Monkey recorded a live jam session for their new album right here in the tent. A side note: Seeing them live was like an IV drip of sugar, in music form. Between the catchy/witty songs and the astoundingly energetic musicians, it was impossible not to bounce around in the kiddie mosh pit.
Oh yes, we said kiddie mosh pit. Don’t worry, the kids are all fine!
After Recess Monkey completed the live recording, they worked their magic and presto: In Tents was born (we may have just glossed over an incredible amount of work). The album will be featured in a series of kid-friendly, rock-tastic shows beginning in May on select Saturdays and Sundays through July. Boogie down with the whole family at this circus spectacular that features performers from Teatro ZinZanni‘s renowned dinner shows, as well as Seattle circus stars of tomorrow. Arrive early for pre-show activities and snacks!
