Orlando Repertory Theatre (The REP) presents Curious George: The Golden Meatball (February 27 – April 9, 2017), presented by Clear Channel Outdoor.
Join Curious George, the inquisitive, lovable monkey-star of books, movies, and the award-winning PBS television show in a delightful new musical. All-You-Can-Eat Meatball Day comes just once a year, and George could not be more excited. With George involved, things always get a bit interesting, and on this day, all roads lead to Rome for the Golden Meatball Contest! Along the way, George discovers the secret ingredient known by all the best chefs and shares it with all his friends!
“This story is one that shares Curious George’s irresistible qualities — ingenuity, opportunity, determination, and curiosity in learning and exploring, all while discovering to the meaning of ‘putting your heart’ into it”, says director Steve MacKinnon. “This little monkey is so popular that his original story has never been out of print, and Curious George has become one of the most beloved and most recognizable characters from children’s literature.”
Curious George: The Golden Meatball features music by John Kavanaugh with book and lyrics by Jeremy Desmon, and is based on the books by Margret and H.A. Rey and the Play owned by Universal Stage Productions.
