Extra Extra: New after-school program in Hyde Park

Posted by Joe on September 28, 2012

After School Program

Barrel of Monkey has a new addition to our program offerings!

We will be conducting a brand-new after-school program at the brand-new Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at The University of Chicago!


Each session is led by two Barrel of Monkeys actor-educators and includes games, group story writing, student performances and creative writing time. Students will engage with many different writing forms including, but not limited to: radio plays, acrostic poems, haikus, creative nonfiction, commercial jingles, monologues, science fiction and newspaper reporting. Participants in the program also explore many acting and performance techniques and learn the value of working as a supportive ensemble.  Each session ends with a showcase, and our final performance in the spring of 2013 will feature a full performance of students’ work by BOM’s professional actor-educators!


The program meets every Wednesday from 4:15-5:15 at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at 915 E. 60th Street on the University of Chicago campus. Classes for the Fall session begin October 10 and conclude December 5 (and will take November 21 off for the Thanksgiving holiday).
