About Barrel of Monkeys
Barrel of Monkeys (BOM) is an ensemble of actor/educators who create an alternative learning environment in which children share their personal voices and celebrate the power of their imaginations. BOM accomplishes this through creative writing workshops and in-school performances of children's stories. BOM also engages the broader community in support of the visions of children through public performances of their work.
Our Vision: A radically kind Chicago that champions children's ideas.
Funds raised by Fancy Schmancy support our work in Chicago elementary school classrooms, as well as programming in theatres and parks throughout the city.
