Aimed at ages 5-11
Step inside Geppetto’s workshop and hear the tale of a puppet that wants to be a real boy, and a puppet maker who wants to be a real father. Watch as Pinocchio is carved on stage, paint brushes come to life as foxes and the shadow of two saws transform into a giant fish.
An element of improvisation adds to the magic, as no two performances are exactly the same.
Puppetry, shadows, illusion and original music combine to create a show that is inventive, witty and has a big heart.

Pinocchio is aimed at ages 5 – 11. Children at the younger end of the range can enjoy the adventures of a naughty puppet and the participation and visual aspects of the show. Older audience members can enjoy the improvisation and slapstick humour. There is mild threat from a circus owner and a scary shadow scene with a large fish just before the happy ending.
