I can understand what a theatre performance is (and how it is different from a movie). I can identify characters and their actions. I can identify a play's problem and solution. I can understand what it means to be an actor. I can be an actor in a classroom exercise. I can understand how the plot and characters of a play are based on or similar to a book. I can understand how to be a good audience member for a theatre performance. I can ask appropriate questions about a play and listen for the answers.
Curious George: The Golden Meatball
Music by John Kavanaugh
Book and Lyrics by Jeremy Desmon
Based on the books by Margaret and H.A Rey and the Play, Owned by Universal Stage Production

Everyone's favorite mischievous monkey and his friend in the yellow hat sing and dance up a storm in this adventure filled 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.
160 tickets are available for each performance.
Students need to attend the production with an appropriate number of chaperones, as determined by the school and the teacher. There is often an opportunity for a select number of caregivers to attend a production as a chaperone.
