Amazing Drumming Monkeys

• Puppetry
South Australia

Australia’s favourite family puppet show is back at the Garden of Unearthly Delights in 2023.  The “Monkey show” has been touring nationally and internationally for over 19 years, and is a “must see” for families with young children.

It’s rare to find a show that can be equally enjoyed by children, and their parents.  Cute & funny monkey puppets for the children, hilarious comedy for the adults, funky live drumming for all ages, and a message for the world.

SOLD OUT in 2022, the Monkeys will have kids and parents laughing, dancing and drumming together with their fantastic show.

The Amazing Drumming Monkeys Show is one of Australia’s most popular children’s entertainment acts. Based in Adelaide (South Australia), the “Monkeys” have performed thousands of shows all over Australia and internationally for the past 19 years. Performances range from childcare, kindergarten and schools, to major international festivals and events.

Xavier Beaubois and Troy Moore are Adelaide based hand drummers who worked together performing and developing the show for 15 years (Circa Nov 2003). Troy Moore left the act in 2019 and Xavier is now the sole owner and manager of the Amazing Drumming Monkeys.

2019 saw the introduction of the Monkey’s newest and first female Character (Kiiko), which has taken the show to new heights of popularity.
