The Garden of Unearthly Delights
Rundle Park | Kadlitpina, East Terrace, Adelaide

Febuary 20 – March 21

A show where puppets play live instruments!

A show where the parents are as engaged and entertained as the young children!

A show that has toured nationally and internationally for over 17 years!

It’s a very rare thing for a show to be as enduring and as loved as the Amazing Drumming Monkeys, and they’re back this year at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, with their adorable variety show, aimed at 2-8 year olds (but is great entertainment for all ages)!

Funky live drumming for all ages

For over 10 years The Amazing Drumming Monkeys Show has entertained thousands of children (and adults), at thousands of events around Australia and abroad. Based in Adelaide, the Monkeys have become so popular they have 2 teams operating full time and can perform at multiple events on any given day!

The 2 monkey puppets (Bongo & Congo) play African drums, lead audiences in songs & dances, perform magic tricks and (low tech) special effects gags etc. The show also features beautiful positive messages, such as caring for our environment, and getting along with each other.

The Monkeys appeal to a great range of people, places, and events. The show has cute & funny monkeys for the kids, great drumming for the adults, variety segments for all ages, and a message for the world.
