That's Weird Grandma

Tonight’s show is going to be awesome.
I can hear your internal monologue:

“But Heidi, you ALWAYS say that”

True. And I’m always right. However, tonight I’m even more right since one of our student authors is coming to see his story!

Which author? You’ll just have to come to the show to find out! (Although I did already hint that it’s a boy. I’ll give another hint: he’s one of our after-school program students)

Two new stories this week: Ghost Friend and The Baby Man.  It’s also the first week for a new cast (including the “That’s Weird, Grandma” debut of Tim Simeone, Tim Soszko, and John Hall).

99% inspiration, 1% funny Hats.

Full running order after the jump.

That's Weird Grandma

I wrote this post this morning, and then it got swallowed by our internet troubles at the office.
(ever considered making a donation to Barrel of Monkeys? We could use it!)

I’ll try to recreate: We’ve added two new stories this week, both are Untitled. The first is a fascinating introduction to price theory, a small lesson in basic economic theory about how to set prices at your basic car factory that sells cars and boats with flags. The second is a happy memory of when an Uncle dunked a basketball. Both are delightful!

Oh, and for those who keep track of these things, “The Cowboys Who Fighted” has been in the longest of the current run.

Full running order after the jump, with any luck.

TWG Matinees, Past and Future

That's Weird Grandma

First, I just realized that I never posted about last Monday’s running order. So sorry! There were two new stories: The Funny Man and Fartacine.

Second, sadly we will not have a matinee this next Tuesday. The first two were big hits, this one was, it seems, a harder sell.

Third, I am proud to announce that next year we will have a whole lot more matinee performances than ever before! It’s a long time off, but mark your calenders anyway. In April and May of 2009 we will have Sunday matinee performances -8 of them! - at a kid friendly time. We will of course have a lot more to say about this in the future.

I hope your summers are going well, things are quiet with the monkeys as we gear up for another exciting school year.

That's Weird Grandma

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. Know what gets a full week back at work off to a good start? Seeing Barrel of Monkeys, of course!

Because of the holiday, we didn’t have a rehearsal this week so the show is the same as last week. Which means it is really really good. Also, tomorrow (Tuesday) is the first of our three special summertime matinees. We’re expecting a really good crowd tomorrow, but could use some more folks for the 15th and 22nd. We hear often that 8pm on a Monday is too late for the little ones, so we encourage you to play hooky from whatever usually keeps you occupied at 11:00am on a Tuesday and join us at the Neo-Futurarium. Tickets are, of course, available in advance.

The running order for tonight and tomorrow is after the jump. We’ll change it up again for next week, never fear.

That's Weird Grandma

We’re back from Milwaukee and ready to go! Kurt has promised to write more about the actual AG Bell performance and trip as a whole, so I won’t spoil it by revealing any of the details.

Luckily we all got back in time for rehearsal on Sunday and the show tonight. We’ve added two dialogues to the running order, and under the guest direction of Lauren Sharpe (Laura Grey is on a quick vacation) the show should be fantabulous. Full running order after the jump—and as always, you can buy your tickets online!

Also, remember we have THREE special matinees coming up in July! Tuesdays at 11:00, July 8, 15 and 22.
