Get ready to monkey around with the cast and crew of Upper Darby Summer Stage as the wacky star of the popular children’s book series and hit PBS show comes to life in this brand new musical for young kids and parents alike as  “Curious George and the Golden Meatball”  takes center stage Wednesday August 2nd- Friday August 4th.

 Audiences will be delighted by the antics of the inquisitive monkey George and his owner, the Man in the Yellow Hat, as they hit the stage with new friends, catchy music, and a whacky adventure. This musical is a first for Upper Darby Summer Stage and is guaranteed to be a hit among families with young children. Performances are August 2, 3, and 4 at 10:30 am and on August 3 at 7:30 pm at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center.

It’s All-You-Can-Eat Meatball Day and George couldn’t be more excited! With the help of the Man in the Yellow Hat (Josh Angell of Havertown), George (Anthony Flamminio of Drexel Hill) helps his friend Chef Pisghetti (Mark LaVecchio of Drexel Hill) cook delicious meatballs. But when Phinnea T. Lightspeed (Caroline Borio of Plymouth Meeting) uses the Meatballs O’Matic to steal the hungry crowd away, a defeated Chef Pisghetti vows to quit cooking. To help him feel better, George enters the chef in the Golden Meatball Competition… in Rome. With a monkey like George and a cast of goofy characters, there’s no telling what fun will ensue as George learns about Rome, meatballs, and the secret ingredient to good cooking – and friendship.

Director Brian Walsh explains the show “really is about the importance of friendship.” “It’s about how even when we don’t feel we can accomplish something, our friends can lift us up,” said Brian. “This show is certain to provide a positive message for young kids that will resonate with their families.”
