  • Barrel of Monkeys celebrates its 20th anniversary of arts education in Chicago Public Schools with a special one-night-only event: KIDS WRITE IT: 20 YEARS OF INTERGENERATIONAL STORYTELLING, featuring student-written stories from each of its 20 years, performed by the company’s talented team of actor-educator.

    The brilliant imaginations of young authors come to life on stage as Barrel of Monkeys celebrates the many alumni of its arts education programs in Chicago’s public school and parks over the past two decades! Throughout the school year, Barrel of Monkeys teaches creative writing workshops with 2nd through 7th graders, both in-school and through its free after-school program. Barrel of Monkeys’ actor-educators then adapt the students’ stories into entertaining and compelling sketches, songs and dramatic pieces performed first for the student authors at their schools – and later for the public.
