Barrel of Monkeys celebrates the season with THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA: Holiday Stories, a festive line-up of sketches and songs written by kids and inspired by the holidays, winter, elves, gift-giving and much more! THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA: Holiday Stories will play Mondays at 8 pm - plus a special weekend of added holiday performances - now through December 23, 2017 at the Neo-Futurist Theater, 5153 N. Ashland Ave. in Chicago. The press opening is Monday, December 11 at 8 pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Directed by Artistic Director Brandon Cloyd, THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA features stories conceived and written by Chicago elementary school students and adapted for the stage and performed by Barrel of Monkeys Company Members.

THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA: Holiday Stories features Barrel of Monkeys Company Members Ashley Bland, Barry Irving, Mari Marroquin, Meredith Milliron, Deanna Myers, Caleb Probst, Bradford Stevens, Mary Tilden, Gwen Tulin and Rawson Vint.

Clever and funny - touching and poignant - the collection of short sketches and songs featured in THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA is equally entertaining for adults and children. The line-up of the long-running, critically-acclaimed revue changes each week by audience vote, so no two shows are ever the same.

Tickets are available at www.barrelofmonkeys.org or by calling (773) 506-7140.
