THAT’S WEIRD, GRANDMA IS TAKING A THREE WEEK BREAK!
Figure 1. TWG IS A CATERPILLAR CLIMBING INTO A THREE-WEEK COCOON TRANSFORMING INTO A BRAND NEW SHOW.
Barrel of Monkeys (BOM) kicks off its 15th season with an all new, cross-disciplinary extravaganza titled “Chicago’s Weird, Grandma”.
Figure 2. IN THE COCOON, BARREL OF MONKEYS IS JOINING FORCES WITH CHICAGO ARTISTIC HEAVY HITTERS FOR ALL NEW “CHICAGO’S WEIRD, GRANDMA”.
Company Members From Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Lookingglass Theatre Company, House Theatre of Chicago, The Hypocrites, Factory Theater, and Many More Present Their Take on Kids’ Stories From BOM Residencies. Company members from each guest organization will use elements of theater, experimental dance, puppetry, clowning and vaudeville-inspired performance art to transform the creative writings of third, fourth and fifth grade CPS and Chicago Park District students into original sketches and songs.
Figure 3. THE COCOON BURTS OPEN AND A BRAND NEW MAGICAL MONDAY NIGHT SHOW EMERGES.
“This is an exciting celebration of the BOM tribe, and an opportunity for the Chicago theatre community to celebrate with us the incredible imaginations of our young authors, the participants in ‘Chicago’s Weird, Grandma’ are all heavy hitters, from the groundbreaking ensemble that is Steppenwolf Theatre to last year’s Tony-Award Winning Lookingglass to Chicago’s signature late night Neo-Futurists. This is a series not to be missed.”
-Molly Brennan, Artistic Director, Barrel of Monkeys
