Join the inquisitive, lovable little monkey Curious George, star of books, movies and the award winning PBS television show in this delightful new musical.

All–You-Can-Eat Meatball Day came just once a year. George had been waiting all month for that day, a day almost bigger than his birthday!  On Meatball Day, George  helped his friend Chef Pisghetti cook some delicious meatballs, and serve them to  the hungry crowd.  But this year, the crowd had vanished! Something was keeping people away. Something pretty big.

And that “something” was  Phinneas T. Lightspeed and his speedy Meatballs O’Matic machine.In despair, Chef Pisghetti vows to cook no more.Determined to help his friend,  George goes on a mission to enter the Chef’s meatballs in the  world-famous Golden Meatball  Contest….in  Rome.

With every swing and flip, George takes the audience through a fun-filled adventure in which he learns more about Rome -- and meatballs…and the “secret ingredient” to cooking  than he'd ever imagined!

Based on the book series by Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey
