On the heels of releasing their tenth studio CD, Desert Island Disc, the trio of elementary school teachers turned popular kindie icons are embarking on a new aquatic adventure. And this one is making some serious waves in Seattle. Read on for the scoop on Recess Monkey’s all-new Tambourine Submarine musical spectacular!
It’s a concert. It’s a circus. It’s both!
Set inside Teatro ZinZanni’s antique cabaret tent, Tambourine Submarine is a high-energy musical junket guaranteed to amaze, astound and entertain even the littlest Recess Monkey fans. The show opens with Drew, Jack and Korum aboard the Tambourine Submarine (from their first aquatic-themed album, Deep Sea Diver) as it crashes into a mysterious, deserted island. The monkeys turned sailors quickly find themselves castaways on the island along with a mosh pit of kiddos and a mix of characters including a group of seagulls, a beautiful mermaid and sea goddess and a comical sea captain and his first mate.
The show’s storyline is fun and easy for kids to follow and includes several surprises and a rockin’ set of seaworthy tunes from start to finish. The show also features spellbinding aerial and acrobatic performances by Teatro ZinZanni’s renowned dinner show performers (and several kids from Seattle’s stars of tomorrow) as well as a trio of adorable hula dancers. If you’re thinking this show has a little of this and a little of that… you’re right! And we haven’t even told you about the countless jokes, puns and shenanigans that keep both parents and kiddos on their toes!
