Sock Monkey Circus
by Honey Goodenough, Resident Teaching Artist
Sock Monkey Circus is a full circus performed in miniature! This performance features the magical talents of the host "Funny Honey" and her clever monkeys, who are trained to juggle, dance, and swing on a flying trapeze! All this while traveling in their very own circus train car that converts into a miniature stage. This circus can be featured outside to interact with spectators, or also featured on a stage for a more formal presentation. These silly monkeys continually outsmart our host, all while performing a variety of circus routines. Everyone is welcome to monkey around with the Sock Monkey Circus!
Recommended for ages 3 and up. Marionettes. Length: 40 minutes.
