Curious George: The Golden Meatball

Sunday, March 4, 2018 / 3:00 pm
(765) 494-3933

Curious George—that lovably inquisitive little monkey and icon of books, movies, and an Emmy Award-winning PBS TV series—comes to the stage in a delightful new musical from TheatreWorks USA.

Each year, George eagerly awaits the only day more important than his birthday: All-You-Can-Eat Meatball Day, when he helps his friend Chef Pisghetti cook and serve delicious meatballs to a hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd has vanished—lured away by Phineas T. Lightspeed and his Meatballs O’Matic 9000 machine. In despair, Chef Pisghetti vows to cook no more. However, his buddy George decides to enter the chef’s meatballs in the world-famous Golden Meatball Contest to prove they’re the best. Can a determined little monkey make it all the way to Rome and win the big prize? With every swing and flip, George leads the audience through a fun-filled adventure in which he learns more about Italy’s capital, friendship, and the “secret ingredient” to cooking! Curious George: The Golden Meatball delivers a can’t-miss recipe the whole family will enjoy.

This performance is a Purdue Convocations Family Matinee presented by TheatreWorks USA. Area students also will have the opportunity to see this performance on Monday, March 5, 2018. Learn more about the Purdue Convocations Youth Series.
