Photo Flash: Barrel of Monkeys Presents THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA Rings in the Holidays
Barrel of Monkeys celebrates the season with THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA Rings in the Holidays, directed by Artistic Director Brandon Cloyd, playing Mondays at 8 pm (plus special weekend performances) from December 10 - December 22, 2018 at the Neo-Futurist Theater, 5153 N. Ashland Ave. in Chicago. Tickets are currently available at www.barrelofmonkeys.org or by calling (773) 506-7140.
Barrel of Monkeys' beloved holiday special returns with a mix of classic stories from the That's Weird, Grandma repertoire alongside brand new sketches and songs. Make That's Weird, Grandma your family's newest holiday tradition!
Now in its eighteenth year, THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA features adaptations of stories written during Barrel of Monkeys' creative writing residencies in Chicago elementary schools. BOM's ensemble of professional actors, comedians and musicians bring the young authors' stories to life as raucous sketches, songs and movement pieces, performing first for students in their schools and then for the public. These stories - from hilarious dialogues between unlikely characters to poignant pleas for social change - resonate with adults while celebrating the imaginations of young people. Every week brings a new line-up of stories, and BOM invites audiences to vote on their favorites at each performance.
