Maurice Sendak & Carole King Wrote a Children’s Musical

Maurice Sendak was famous for writing and illustrating the 1963 classic picture book, Where the Wild Things Are. But he also penned a less well-known children’s musical, Really Rosie, featuring a girl who makes movies about the exciting, funny, dramatic (and slightly exaggerated) moments of her life. Gloriana Musical Theatre will bring Really Rosie, which boasts a score by folk icon Carole King, to the stage of Eagles Hall in Fort Bragg, on weekends October 4–20. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is $10–$18; children younger than 5 get in free. Purchase tickets at
