KEYNOTE* Curious George and bonus activities George and the man with the yellow hat are going camping!

Before long, an encounter with a cute forest creature throws George into a chain of outrageous events that allows him to find a way to be helpful after all. AGES 5-8 years Grades K-3 AUTHOR Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favourites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS. *
"I opened my business magazine, and that's when I saw the ad. Executive De-stressing. Get away from it all. Guided one-on-one wilderness camping. Our motto is "If you're not living on the edge, You're taking up TOO MUCH ROOM!" Call Earl - the Camping Guy! So I did, and I signed up on the spot. I'd never been camping before. I was really looking forward to it and Earl - well, Earl, he was quite the guy." Reminiscent of television's and theater's The Odd Couple, "The Camping Guy" follows the misadventures of Earl, an experienced woodsman, and Johnson, his inept city slicker client, as they spend a camping weekend in the wilds of the Rockies. What was intended to be a de-stressing weekend soon turns into a distressing one, as these two mismatched campers find themselves engaged in unintended and hilarious situations. Male bonding has never been more funny, nor more dangerous! A Fringe Festival audience favorite, "The Camping Guy" has simple set requirements and a small cast, making it a favorite of both audiences and back stage production crews alike. If you like camping, or if you hate camping, you're going to love The Camping Guy"!
