Curious George and the Golden Meatball

                         A Childhood Favorite Debuts at Upper Darby Summer Stage with “Curious George and the Golden Meatball” August 2, 3, and 4

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.

Tickets are affordably priced at $8-$12 and members save $1. Tickets may be purchased at or by calling the box office at 610.622.1189. The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center is located at 601 N. Lansdowne Avenue, minutes from the Main Line and Center City.

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.

The performance is approximately 60 minutes with no intermission. Parking is free. The show is recommended for ages four and up with free babysitting in the lobby offered for those who may be too young to sit quietly through the entire show.

A Summer Stage show is a unique experience for all ages. Prior to the children’s performances young audience members can enjoy pre-show activities and a meet-and-greet with characters after each show. Autographs and pictures are encouraged!
