The fantastical adventures of a wooden puppet who dreamed of being a real boy!
Toy-maker Gepetto crafts toys for the local children but has long dreamed of having a son, when a magical fairy brings one of his puppet creations to life. The puppet ‘Pinocchio’ must prove he is worthy of Gepetto’s love and be a good and honest child before the fairy turns him into a real boy.
Follow Pinocchio on his adventures, from his home to Stromboli's Circus and back again via the belly of a whale, as he learns valuable life lessons through his dealings with a mischievous fox, the ruthless Stromboli and of course the HUUUUGE Monstro!
Will Geppetto save Pinocchio from those out to exploit him? Will the little puppet listen to his conscience in the form of a pet cricket……and will the fairy’s spell complete itself?
From the team who brought you ‘The Night Before Christmas’, PHA and WTM present a brand new production of the well-loved tale. This socially distanced event will be sure to deliver cheer with fun, laughs and songs along the way - the perfect treat for 3-8 year olds. So come and join us at the Pavilion this May half-term and see the socially-distanced magic unfold.
