Curious George and the Golden Meatball
Join Curious George, the inquisitive, lovable monkey-star of books, movies and the award-winning PBS television show in a brand new musical. Curious George: The Golden Meatball TYA is a loveable adventure, specifically designed for young audiences, that is sure to leave them singing and swinging down the aisles.
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!

Dear Edwina
Dear Edwina is a heartwarming musical about the joys of growing up. The show’s heroine is an advice-giver extraordinaire, like a spunky, singing version of Dear Abby. Sweet, smart and tuneful, Dear Edwina appeals to audiences of all ages.
Thirteen-year-old Edwina Spoonapple would do just about anything to be a part of the Kalamazoo Advice-a-Palooza Festival. While her siblings both have proof of their accomplishments, poor Edwina has nothing. When a talent scout from the convention visits her hometown, she trots out her musical advice, giving shows live from the family garage in hopes of finding her place in the spotlight. She is assisted by her older siblings, quirky friends and neighbors. Together, they set out to tackle the world’s problems in number after hysterical number about everything from birthday party etiquette to proper table settings.

Tortoise and the Hare
Based on the classic fable but with a modern twist! Ancient vs. modern. Brain vs. brawn. Sacred vs. secular. Poor vs. rich. Reptile vs. mammal. Hip Hop vs. Hula… you know. All the classic match-ups.
The ultimate culture clash between two tribes and a fantastical race to decide the fate of them all. Musical styles collide in this energetic new re-imagining of the ancient fable.
