Pinocchio

Author(s): Sarah Middleton
Company: Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company

When Pinocchio discovers that he’s a puppet and not a human, he sets off on an exciting adventure with his trusty sidekick Cricket to find the magic potion that will transform him into a real boy.

As he travels the land in search of the potion, Pinocchio meets a whole host of larger-than-life characters. The only trouble is that each teeny-tiny lie he tells makes his wooden nose grow longer! And before he knows it, Pinocchio’s on the run from a fairground master who wants to throw him onto the woodpile.

Will he become a real boy? Or can Pinocchio – and the world around him – learn to accept this puppet boy for who he really is?

Perfect for ages 3-8
