Celebration of Authors
  • Barrel of Monkeys invites you to join student-authors, their classmates, families and educators for the annual CELEBRATION OF AUTHORS, featuring performances of student-written stories created at each of its partner schools and after-school program during the 2017-18 season. The line-up of sketches and songs are performed by Barrel of Monkeys’ ensemble of actors and musicians.

    During the 2017-18 season, Barrel of Monkeys worked with 18 school partners in 49 classrooms, plus its after-school program. The Chicago-based arts education theater ensemble, now in its 21st season, conducts creative writing workshops with 3rd through 5th grade students in underserved Chicago elementary 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.
