Barrel of Monkeys Presents THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA: THE HOLIDAY SPECIAL, Now thru 1/13

Barrel of Monkeys invites you to join them by the imaginary hearth and celebrate the warmth of the holiday season with THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA: THE HOLIDAY SPECIAL, featuring a festive array of holiday-themed favorites like Santa and Taco Bell, The Crazy Reindeer, Snowmen From Pluto, Santa's Mean Day and many more - all conceived and written by Chicago Public School students and adapted for the stage and performed by Barrel of Monkeys Company Members.

Directed by Artistic Director Molly Brennan, THAT'S WEIRD GRANDMA: THE HOLIDAY SPECIAL plays Mondays at 8 pm from December 9, 2013 - January 13, 2014 at the Neo-Futurist Theater, 5153 N. Ashland Ave. in Chicago. Clever and funny - touching and poignant - the weekly collection of short sketches are equally entertaining for both adults and children. The line-up changes each week by audience vote - so no two shows are ever the same. For tickets, reservations and information visit www.barrelofmonkeys.org or call (312) 409-1954.

Barrel of Monkeys, a Chicago-based arts education theater ensemble now in its 16th season, conducts creative writing workshops with 3rd through 5th grade students in underserved Chicago Public Schools. The ensemble of actor-educators then turns their stories and words into professionally-performed theater, presented both in-school and for the general public through its revues. Barrel of Monkeys annually performs more than 300 student-written stories for the students in their schools and 175 stories on the stage for the general public.

Barrel of Monkeys' regular edition of THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA plays September 9 - October 2013, followed by a CHICAGO'S WEIRDO, GRANDMA featuring weekly guest artists and companies from October 28 - December 2, 2013.

Tickets: $12 for adults; $6 for children under 12. Tickets are available at www.barrelofmonkeys.org or by calling (312) 409-1954.
