Join the inquisitive, lovable little monkey Curious George, star of books, movies, and the award-winning PBS television show in this delightful new musical presented by TheatreworksUSA from New York. All–You-Can-Eat Meatball Day came just once a year. George had 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 had vanished! Something was keeping people away. Something pretty 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!

Suggested for Grades 3-12

Theatre IV national touring theatre from Richmond, Virginia, invites you to join us in this wondrous retelling of the phenomenal impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King’s life is chronicled in this compelling dramatization of the life and times of one of the most influential and charismatic civil rights leaders of the 20th Century. Inspired by the arrest of Rosa Parks, Dr. King becomes the prime mover behind the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott, putting his philosophy of non-violent protest to work. He gains national recognition and becomes the dominant force in the Civil Rights Movement during its decade of greatest achievement. The audience will be inspired by the story of this great leader’s struggle and his dream of lifting "our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood."  


The Little Red Hen

2015 The Little Red Hen

Monday, April 4, 2016
10 a.m. and 12 p.m.
Suggested for Grades PreK-3

"Who'll help me plant the seed?" asks the plucky red hen as she begins the process that goes into making a loaf of her delicious bread. "Not I," say the sheep, the cow, the horse, and the pig. They all have better things to do. But "a hen's gotta do what a hen's gotta do," and so our crimson heroine perseveres until her work is done. The tricks of the conniving fox combine with the hen's common sense to add adventure and a sound moral lesson to this classic, feel good, footstompin' country musical presented by Theatre IV from Richmond, Virginia.
