Celebration of Authors
What: Every June as the school year comes to a close, we produce a very special event called Celebration of Authors. This free production invites every student we worked with throughout the year to come together with their families and teachers and enjoy a night of student-centered activities. The Barrel of Monkeys cast performs one story from every school or group we taught, and at the end, every student is invited to join us on stage for one giant curtain call.
When: Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Where: The Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago in Hyde Park
What: A karaoke party like no other!
