We've Got Lots to Celebrate!

Thank you to everyone who supported Fancy Schmancy: Flashback to 1997! Our 20th anniversary fundraiser surpassed all of our wildest expectations. Be on the lookout for information about next year’s Fancy Schmancy event, coming soon!
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 12, 2018
Where: The Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago in Hyde Park
Thank you to everyone who supported our 2017 fall fundraiser, MONKEY KONG! Stay tuned for next year’s event.
