Z Puppets Rosenschnoz (, a Minneapolis-based national touring company known for imaginative performances combining puppetry and music, announces the release of their new Monkey Mind Pirates CD.

A soundtrack of the Monkey Mind Pirates puppet musical - a rock n' roll yoga adventure - the Monkey Mind Pirates CD (Z Puppets Rosenschnoz, $12.00) was created to help families reclaim calm.

Funded by a 2010 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, Z Puppets' Musical Director, David DeGennaro composed and performed the music and lyrics that tell the story of a sea captain's search for the legendary Waters of Calm. As Cap'n Fitz sets sail, he confronts stressors common among children - including doubt, anxiety, and distraction - all represented by the unruly Monkey Mind Pirates. The Pirates board Cap'n Fitz's ship and wreak havoc until he discovers basic principles of yoga that guide him to manage stress and regain peace.

Sail into the "waters of calm" with Cap'n Fitz as he discovers the secrets of taming the Monkey Mind Pirates!
