Inland Valley Repertory Theatre for Young Audiences returns to the Playhouse after the success of Stuart Little, with a delightful story of everyone’s favorite monkey, Curious George. The inquisitive, loveable monkey-star of books, movies and the award-winning PBS television show, is a fun-filled musical adventure in which he learns about Rome... meatballs... and the secret ingredient to cooking!

All You-Can-Eat Meatball Day came just once a year. 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, and that something was Phinneas T. Lightspeed and his speedy Meatballs-o- Matic machine! In despair, Chef Pisghetti vows to cook no more, so to help his friend George goes on a mission to enter the Chef’s meatballs in the world-famous Golden Meatball Contest in Rome.
