An all-new spectacle of incredible proportions is headed straight towards greater Seattle families!

Recess Monkey is Seattle's very own nationally acclaimed trio of elementary school teachers who rock, and are known best for their high-energy shows and catchy, hysterical recordings. TIME magazine celebrated Recess Monkey's "tight, smart, acclaimed original songs... and seriously grooving funk." People magazine gave them 4/4 stars. Mindy Thomas from SiriusXM's Kids Place Live says, "These guys are able to tap into elementary school so well that it's like they never left. In this never-ending nationwide talent show of kid and family music, they are most definitely at the top." Also members of Seattle's fast growing Kindiependent music collective of family music artists, Recess Monkey has been delighting kids and their parents for over seven years with music that both young and old can enjoy together. Teatro ZinZanni's internationally renowned performers featured in "In Tents" include former Pacific Northwest Ballet principal ballerina Ariana Lallone as The Wizard, former Ringling Bros Circus performer Peter Pitofsky as Pedro the Circus Master, and Ukranian musician and juggler Sergey Krutikov. Rounding out the cast are Seattle's circus star of tomorrow, 10-year old gymnast, contortionist, and aeralist Saffi Watson, as well as drummer and graphic artist Korum Bischoff as the ever-loveable, Bear. Each production in the series features a pre-show carnival from 10-11AM complete with kid-friendly games like a beanbag toss; $2 per play, and everyone wins every time.
