Musical, Young Audiences | June 14 – July 14
Join Curious George, the inquisitive, lovable monkey-star of books, movies and the award-winning PBS television show in a brand new musical, touring the Roanoke Valley this summer. Every year on “All-You-Can-Eat Meatball Day,” a day that comes just once a year, George helps his friend, Chef Pisghetti, cook some delicious meatballs and serve them to the hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd has vanished! Join George on a fun-filled adventure in which he learns about Rome, meatballs, and the secret ingredient to cooking. This touring show will be performed at schools, libraries, parks, and neighborhood venues around the region. Admission is free, and MMT will distribute free books to student audience members as part of our initiative connecting theatre to reading and literacy.
Mask-wearing will be required for both non-vaccinated and vaccinated persons. We cannot promise all parties will be spaced 6 feet apart. If you are concerned with spacing, you may arrive at the theatre 30 minutes prior to the show and we will do our best to seat you at a distance. MMT will follow all CDC and VDH guidelines at the time of performance.
