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 Theatreworks USA. 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!
The year is 1933. Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.

Presented by Theatre du Missippi – A live reading of a new full length play, with audience participation.
Southside Desire are the melding of a garage power trio with a ’60s girl-group; sophisticated harmonies shoo-bop between eccentric guitar riffs and pulsing rhythm. Like The Who backing up the Shirelles, while Union Suits are an outlaw-country band in the mode of Hank Williams, Waylon and Willie and Drive-by Truckers. Melancholy bliss in a gauzy haze of whiskey and fiddle.
