Prince Street Players does it again! In Pinocchio the story of a familiar wooden puppet who wants to become a real boy is told with vim, verve, and vibrancy. Designed specifically for theatres to perform for young audiences and their families, this telling of the classic story will delight young and old alike. Acclaimed on Network Television and now available for your stage.
Set in Italy, this version tells the beloved tale of Pinocchio, a boy-sized puppet built by the caring puppet maker, Geppetto. Knowing of his longing for a son, the Blue Fairy brings Pinocchio to life as a reward for Geppetto's remarkably generous spirit. Pinocchio is told by the Blue Fairy that if he always obeys his father, she will turn him into a real boy. But the best laid plans can sometimes go awry and Pinocchio's boyish longings leads him away from his father and on an adventure unlike any other. From the Land Of The Toys to the belly of a whale, Pinocchio learns that no love is greater than that of a parent for a child.
The perfect piece for a theatre with young audiences, Pinocchio is peppered with lessons of Italian and great fun along with the overall message of the importance of good behavior. As with all Prince Street Players' shows, the materials for Pinocchio (Prince Street Players' Version) include spectacularly detailed costume designs, prop descriptions, and stage notes should the creative team need them.
