. . . I posted about the Cleveland Show since this afternoon, I’ll be performing in the third Monkey show of the school year, at our own Loyola Park after-school program. More on that later.
In the early days of November, Chicago was caught up in election fever. That whole week was kind of a blur, as are most of the photos from Cleveland. Rest assured, blurry times did not keep us from rocking the show.
This school has always given us a warm welcome . . .
It’s one of the schools featured in Collin Souter’s Meet the Monkeys documentary. At the end of this clip, former Principal Rockland says his famous words, “Is it wrong for a man . . . to love . . . a monkey?”
We even rehearsed at this school once upon a time, so we have a long tradition there.
For once, the Cleveland show included no cheerleaders, no face-in-the-cake moments, and no Tom Malinowski dropping his pants in a most-embarrassing-moment-ever story! However, we did a new genre-busting piece which proved a favorite with the children. Here, Patrick, Jason, and NEW ENSEMBLE MEMBER, Katie Suib (Congrats KATIE!!), take their apple puppets to see a movie.
If an apple were to watch a horror movie, what kind of movie would they watch? Think puppet theater meets The Hills Have Eyes.
“AHHHHH!!!! I CAN SEE HIS SEEDS!!!!”
Thanks, Erick, for making us look like rockstars! Thanks Cleveland for being a place where rockstars are raised!
