We've Got Lots to Celebrate!

Each year, Barrel of Monkeys hosts several special events for our audiences and supporters. Click the links to learn more about each of these very special events!

Celebration of Authors

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. The public is welcome to attend for free as well. This year COA will be held at the Logan Center for the Arts on Thursday, June 13 at 7pm.
