From the moment Gepetto creates him from a stick of wood, Pinocchio dreams of being a real boy. But will the all-too-tempting delights of puppet shows and Playland be too much for Pinocchio? When Gepetto is swallowed by a whale, it is up to this little puppet to show his courage and prove his love for his Papa is real. Audiences will join Pinocchio on his adventures as he learns the value of truth, love and acceptance. This is a new, fast-paced, story-within-a-story version of the classic Pinocchio tale.
Appropriate for all ages, but best for levels K-5.
