Barrel of Monkeys Celebrating the power of children's imaginations since 1997
Events and Announcements
What is Barrel of Monkeys?
Barrel of Monkeys teaches creative writing workshops to students aged 7-13 in Chicago Public Schools and in our after-school program at Loyola Park.
Barrel of Monkeys actors and musicians adapt student-written stories into sketches and songs, which are performed for the schools and later for the public.
The students are celebrated and their voices are championed throughout Chicago.
