NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts and its Children's Performing Arts Series will present "Curious George" in two performances on Thursday, Oct. 30, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.

Presented by Theatreworks USA, "Curious George" opens the 2014-2015 Children's Performing Arts Series at SFA, which is committed each year to bringing the finest in affordable professional companies to East Texas young people and their teachers, according to Diane J. Peterson, manager of the SFA Fine Arts Box Office and director of the series.

In this play, "All-You-Can-Eat Meatball Day" comes just once a year. George helps his friend, Chef Pisghetti, cook some delicious meatballs and serve them to the hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd has vanished! 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!
