Artistic Director and FunikiJam Founder Brian Barrentine is pleased to announce FUNIKIJAM WORLD MUSIC'S 2018-2019 Off-Broadway Season. "We're celebrating 20 years of creative, fun, educational entertainment for young children," says Barrentine. "Our Off-Broadway series of Family Musicals is our gift to the youngest citizens of New York City. It's theater designed just for them, perfect for first time theater-goers and still tons of fun for their older siblings. We even see parents and grandparents dancing along as all audience members are invited to get up out of their seats and join in the singing and dancing."
The season kicks off with FunikiJam's BABY LIKES TO ROCK!, followed by the special Halloween costume party show FunikiJam's ROCK-OR TREAT! For the holiday season, FunikiJam's HOLIDAY BEAT is a celebration of winter festivals around the world. The new year begins with the peace-promoting show, FunikiJam's CITY OF HOPE, followed by FunikJam's SHENANIGANS featuring all things Irish for St. Patrick's Day. FunikiJam's MUSIC GARDEN rings in the Spring, and finally FunikiJam's TOTALLY AWESOME SUMMER! transports audiences on globe-spanning summer vacation. All performances will take place at the historic Actors Temple Theatre, located in the heart of the theatre district.
Each year, Brian and his AGENTS OF JAM bring "globe-spanning musical adventure" to enthusiastic audiences across the country with the FunikiJam World Music Tour. Created and directed by Barrentine, this year's tour kicks off at the legendary Rainbow Room in June and plays at family friendly venues through 2020.
