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

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
