As part of State Theatre's Family Day, exhilarating performances by Dan Zanes & Friends and The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus dazzle audiences of all ages with folky tunes, soaring aerialists, and wholesome laughs. Dan Zanes & Friends, led by a former '80s rock-‘n’-roll frontman who transformed into a hip dad after being bitten by a radioactive sweater vest, rope both kids and parents into rollicking sing-alongs and energetic toe-tappers such as "Waltzing Matilda" and "The Hokey Pokey." The lively group threads folk, country, and Latino rhythms into a seamless multicultural mélange that has grossed attention from media outlets that include NPR and the New York Times.

The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, hosted by the colorfully clad Ringmistress Philomena, elevates levels of excitement with a cast of awe-inducing entertainers, including courageous wirewalkers, mystifying sword swallowers, high-flying acrobats, and internationally acclaimed clowns. The charismatic Philomena interacts with the audience throughout the show, provoking oohs and aahs with an uncanny ability to sneeze with open eyes and her signature bullwhip demonstration, where she deftly snaps playing cards from the mouth of a brave volunteer.

Originally built as a 1920s vaudeville and silent-movie house, State Theatre's opulent interior elevates the show-going experience with plush red seating, a majestic proscenium, and a beautiful crystal chandelier that provides a lavish perch to musical-loving albatrosses.
