Tulsa Children’s Summer Theatre Camp presents “Curious George Magic Meatball TYA.” The play, a theatre for young audiences (TYA), is to be performed June 16-17 at 7 p.m. in the PACE Studio Theatre at TCC Southeast campus, 10300 E. 81st St. The musical is directed by Mark Frank, and the vocal director and accompanist is Suzi Gregory.
According to Music Theatre International, the musical synopsis finds Curious George, the inquisitive, lovable monkey-star of books, movies, and the award-winning PBS television show in a brand-new musical. “Curious George: The Golden Meatball TYA” is a loveable adventure, specifically designed for young audiences, that is sure to leave them singing and swinging down the aisles.
Additionally, MTI describes the play as an All You-Can-Eat Meatball Day that comes just once a year. George has 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 has vanished! Something was keeping people away… something 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.
