Here at Barrel of Monkeys, we are so busy paging through all the incredible student stories from last year to bring to the That’s Weird, Grandma stage for your delight that we will not perform on Labor Day (Monday, September 2)!
We will have a new show with all kinds of new stories and old favorites for you on Monday, September 9.
All the magic Barrel of Monkeys brings to the stage begins with our teaching artists’ work with students in the classroom. Here’s a little snippet of what students and classroom teachers have to say about that experience:
“Barrel of Monkeys makes me feel like I could express myself in just a sheet of paper and I could let loose and it feels great, like magic out of thin air and magic pixie dust.” - 3rd grade student, LEARN Campbell Campus
“BOM was an excellent experience to improve writing skills, self expression and creativity. The more introverted students really came out of their shell and became more expressive.” - 5th grade teacher, Paderewski School
“The most important thing I learned is that anyone can be a writer.” - 3rd grade student, New Sullivan School
