Next up in our series about the 2012 Philadelphia International Children’s Festival is John Hadfield’s Monkeys in the House.
John Hadfield’s Monkeys in the House
Flap your arms, tap your feet and let out your inner monkey! John Hadfield’s unique show, Monkeys in the House, combines original funny songs, whoopee cushion percussion, a robot bird, juggling, magic, plate spinning, an imaginary friend who comes to life and even an adorable screaming robot monkey head named Hilton. Whew! Often featured on WXPN’s radio show Kids Corner, Hadfield is an award-winning singer-songwriter and former circus performer who has traveled the world as a clown and juggler.
Recommended for ages 4-10.
*This performance is part of the WXPN Kids Corner Stage
