Last year, FunikiJam was touring the world and starring in their own TV show in China. Now, they are helping families say “Goodbye, Lockdown” and "Hello, Off Broadway" when The FunkiJam Show: Totally Awesome Summer opens at Actors Temple Theatre.
What happens when Agent Melody thinks she is going to have a Totally Boring Summer? Grab your passport, fanny pack and neon maracas because Captain Jam is launching a one-of-a-kind musical vacation around the world and back in time! He'll take her - and you - to totally awesome destinations like: the Beach, the Islands, Australia, and even the 1980’s! But he can't do it alone. That’s why he and the Agents of Jam (a highly trained team of elite experts in music, movement, and cool) are training the audience as "new recruits" to help with the Special 3-Part Mission: to have FUN, to JAM, and to celebrate summer about the WORLD! You, too, will be "feeling fine when you Jam-along" with this original musical that blends engaging action, energizing music, colorful film, and interactive theatre into a joyful journey the whole family can enjoy.
