That's Weird, Grandma: Star-Studded Stories
  • 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.

    In this round of That's Weird, Grandma, you'll witness pop culture legends live onstage - or at least, pop culture legends as 3rd-5th graders imagine them. BOM performers portray stars past, present, and fictional through outrageous dialogues, original songs, and choreographed musical numbers adapted from stories written by Chicago elementary school students.
