Really Rosie opens October 4th!
Get ready to whet your appetite for “Chicken Soup with Rice” on “Avenue P” with this year’s Young Performers production of Really Rosie! Directed by Amanda Morrissey-Ficili.
Really Rosie is based on Maurice Sendak’s timeless children’s books with a score by Carole King. In this upbeat and imaginative musical, Rosie, the self-proclaimed sassiest kid on the block, entertains her friends by producing an imaginary movie based on the exciting, dramatic, funny (and slightly exaggerated) story of her life.
Before Really Rosie became a stage production, the Carole King-Maurice Sendak collaboration was a beloved half-hour cartoon television special. Inspired by Sendak's Nutshell Library series of children's books, the work musicalized classics like "Pierre," "Alligators All Around," "One Was Johnny," and, perhaps the best known, "Chicken Soup With Rice."
Really Rosie runs October 4th through 20th at Eagles Hall in Fort Bragg. Show times are Friday-Saturday at 7:30, and Sunday at 3:00.
