- Curious George on January 18
- Charlotte’s Web on February 15
You may know about adorable monkey George’s famed inquisitiveness, but how about his love for meatballs? In a new musical, the beloved character puts his mischievous ways to good use to help his friend Chef Pisghetti, whose savory orbs were once the hit of Meatball Day. This year, however, sinister inventor Phinneas T. Lightspeed’s Meatballs O’Matic machine is drawing his customers away. So George sets off to Rome, trying to save the day by entering the chef’s specialty in the city’s Golden Meatball Contest.
Charlotte would be a remarkable spider, even if she weren’t also a remarkable speller. To save Wilbur, her pig friend, from becoming pork chops, she stages her own little miracle by writing messages such as “Some Pig” in the web above Wilbur’s pen. A smart-mouthed rat and faithful little human friend round out the cast. E.B. White’s celebrated story comes to life in Joseph Robinette’s faithful adaptation, with incidental music to set the pastoral scene.
There's usually something entrancing to see on Chrysler Theatre's stage, but there's always a captivating view from its walls of windows. The building sits along the Detroit River, with a prime outlook on Detroit's skyline. Twelve hundred red seats fill the auditorium, stately and comfy in equal measure. The Chrysler is part of St. Clair College, which has a robust musical theater department to fill the stage when it's not hosting touring shows.
