Clever Kids Team Up With Funny Adults For 'That's Weird, Grandma'

Posted: Updated:

Kids can be quite clever, and if you need proof, you still have three more chances to check out "That's Weird, Grandma" at the Neo-Futurarium.

Barrel of Monkeys is a theater ensemble group that teaches creative writing workshops to Chicago Public School students. Then, the group of comedians, musicians and playwrights adapt the student's stories into short performances for the public.

"This group is funnier than anything at Second City, more genuinely creative than anything at Lookingglass, and does more good than all the other nonprofit theaters in town put together. If you don't have a good time, there's something wrong with you," said Christopher Piatt to the Chicago Reader.

This is a family-friendly show for all ages and is about an hour long. The show started back in April 2001 and so far they've produced over 500 stories and musical acts.

The performances are on Monday evenings and the last show is Jan. 17.

When: Monday, January 3, 8 p.m.
