FunikiJam's HOLIDAY BEAT! family spectacular
About HOLIDAY BEAT!
Holiday traditions in New York are as diverse as its residents, but only one Holiday show gives audiences the chance to see so many celebrations in one place. Part live concert and part stage show, FunikiJam’s HOLIDAY BEAT is New York City’s only Off-Broadway show to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Chinese New Year, and Shichigosan - for kids
When Special Agent Bahjat wants to throw a holiday party that includes everyone, Captain Jam and the Agents of Jam take him on a globe-spanning musical adventure to complete Special Mission: HOLIDAY PARTY and throw the ultimate celebration.
Creator and performer Brian Barrentine says, “Children are naturally curious about other cultures, and living in New York, they see diversity all around them. FunikiJam’s HOLIDAY BEAT opens the door for families to talk about diversity, learn about other countries’ meaningful holidays, and most importantly, have fun together. It’s a show that unites our audiences and reminds us of all we have in common as citizens of the world.”
Recommended for ages 2-10. Lap sitting infants are Free. Kids are encouraged to get out of their seats to dance and sing along with the cast in the aisles or even upclose to the stage.
