Kid-Penned Comedy Show That's Weird, Grandma
$5 - $10*
$5 - $20
Barrel of Monkeys proudly presents a special Halloween edition of their long-running sketch show that's written by kids, performed by grownups, and enjoyed by humans. Gather ye 'round at The Neo-Futurarium for a line-up of scary (and silly) stories featuring talking potatoes getting lost in the woods, creepy slideshows that haunt old houses, and other spooky scenarios imagined by Chicago elementary school students. Now in its 18th year, That's Weird, Grandma features adaptations of stories written during Barrel of Monkeys' creative writing residencies in Chicago elementary schools. BOM's ensemble of professional actors, comedians and musicians bring the young authors' stories to life as raucous sketches, songs and movement pieces. These stories -- from hilarious dialogues between unlikely characters to poignant pleas for social change -- resonate with adults while celebrating the imaginations of young people.
