“Recycled Percussion” will be at the Flying Monkey on Saturday, January 11th for their 4th annual performance, with two shows this year due to popular demand.

This historic, renovated 1920s theater also offers snacks and meals before and during performances. For the matinee, sandwiches, healthy snacks, and concessions will be available, and the evening performance will have an optional 6pm dinner service with a children’s menu.
