The Growing Stage Presents "Curious George: The Golden Meatball"

(NETCONG, NJ) -- The Growing Stage, The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey, presents the musical production of Curious George: The Golden Meatball from March 15-31 with performances Saturdays and Sundays at 4:00pm and a special Opening Night Performance, March 15th at 7:30pm followed by a post-show reception.  Featuring Music by John Kavanaugh and Book & Lyrics by Jeremy Desmon, this production is directed by Danny Campos, TGS Theatre Artist and Audience Development Director with Musical Direction by Stephen Fox and Choreography by Jillian Petrie.

In Curious George: The Golden Meatball, All You-Can-Eat Meatball Day 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 helps his friend, Chef Pisghetti, cook some delicious meatballs and serve them to the hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd had vanished! Something is keeping people away… something pretty big. And that something is 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!  Join Curious George, the inquisitive, lovable monkey-star of books, movies and the award-winning PBS television show in a brand new musical adventure, specifically designed for young audiences, that is sure to leave them singing and swinging down the aisles.

Curious George: The Golden Meatball features the talents of six professional performers in the cast.  Returning to the Palace are Growing Stage favorites: Davis Cameron Lemley (Disney’s Beauty And The Beast, The Wizard of OZ) of Cedar Grove, NJ, as Chef Pisghetti; Jenna Morris (Disney’s Beauty And The Beast, The Wizard of OZ) of Hoboken, NJ, as Netti and making their Growing Stage debut are Will Brockman of Dover, NJ, as Man In the Yellow Hat; Gregory Banks of East Brunswick, NJ as Phinneas; Melody Lieberman of Parsippany, NJ as Doorman and Sara Giacomini of South Bound Brook, NJ as George.
