Playhouse On Park Presents CURIOUS GEORGE AND THE GOLDEN MEATBALL Sensory-Friendly Performances
The Miracle League of CT partners with Playhouse on Park in producing special sensory-friendly performances of Curious George and the Golden Meatball, the first show offered in Playhouse's 2018-2019 Young Audience Series. All tickets will be specially priced at $5 for these performances only, all seats reserved.
The Miracle League of CT provides opportunities for children with sensory issues and other special needs to enjoy educational and cultural activities. The Miracle League of CT is, additionally, the official and Primary Sponsor for Playhouse on Park's Season Ten Young Audience Series.
Sensory friendly performances are a welcoming and inclusive place for families to engage in live theater in the following ways: eliminating startling sounds when at all possible, keeping the lights at a low level throughout the show, providing a respite area in the lobby for those who may need a break, and giving the option of talking during the performance.
Based on the books by Margaret and H.A. Rey, everyone's favorite mischievous monkey and his friend in the yellow hat sing and dance up a storm in this adventure-filled musical. On Meatball Day, Curious George helped his friend, Chef Pisghetti, cook some delicious meatballs and serve them to the hungry crowd. This year, the crowd had vanished! Something was keeping people away, 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. Sensory programs are scheduled for Sunday, December 9 at 10am and Friday, December 14 at 9:30am. Curious George and the Golden Meatball runs December 8-16.
School groups are welcome to come to the theater through our Literature Alive program. As part of the student's field trip to the theater for a matinee, the Playhouse also provides: a study guide to prepare students for the production, a professional from the Playhouse to lead a workshop for students, and a meet and greet with the cast after the show. Teachers and paraprofessionals attend the trip for free!
