Rainbow Puppets: The Amazon

Meet Montee, the Waxy Monkey Tree Frog. He serves as your tour guide and is quick to explain, he is not made of wax and he is not a monkey. Things are never as they seem in the Amazon. The croaking frog in the distance is actually a Toucan. The lion you meet is only a foot tall. That giant cat is not a cat at all but a fish, rumored to swallow a man whole. The voice of Montee is provided by two-time Tony Award winning talent Geoffrey Holder. A world acclaimed painter, dancer, and choreographer, he is perhaps best known for television and movie appearances and for his booming voice. Mr. Holder was a towering presence in the James Bond movie “Live and Let Die,” as Punjab in the movie “Annie,” and more recently, as the narrator for Johnny Depp’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” While audience participation has always been a hallmark of Rainbow's programs, it's never been more pronounced than in "Amazon Adventures." Do a line dance with Eel-lo the Electric Eel. Do the twist with King, the Golden Lion Tamarin. And join the Carnival as everyone is invited to join the grand finale.
Tickets: $5/person Pay at Door.
