West Windsor, N.J. – Curious George, star of books, movies and the award-winning PBS television show, is coming to Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Kelsey Theatre. As part of the Kelsey Kids Series, Theatreworks/USA presents “Curious George and The Golden Meatball” on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on MCCC’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Young audiences will embrace the inquisitive, lovable little monkey in this lively new musical. George had been waiting a long time for All–You-Can-Eat Meatball Day, which comes just once a year. On Meatball Day, George helps his friend, Chef Pisghetti, cook some delicious meatballs and serve them to a hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd had vanished. Something is keeping folks away. It’s chef against machine as George attempts to help his friend, going as far as Rome to enter the chef’s meatballs in the world-famous Golden Meatball Contest. Youngsters will delight in accompanying George on this a fun-filled journey, where he learns more about Rome, meatballs and the “secret ingredient” to cooking than he could have ever imagined.
