Adapted and Directed by Paul Reisman

2014 Helen Hayes Award nominee for Outstanding Theatre for Young Audiences.

This adaptation for young audiences follows a marionette's wild adventures in becoming a real boy. Five actors bring Carlo Collodi's classic tale to life is a flurry of masks, music and merriment!

Originally penned as a serial in 1881, Le avventure di Pinocchio (The Adventures of Pinocchio) was the birth of a rascally wooden character who would grow to be a time-honored favorite. Written in the tradition of the wily servants of Commedia dell'Arte, our hero is always getting himself in and out of scrapes, running into colorful characters, and trying his best even at his worst. This production marries Commedia's bold theatricality to this fantastical story of foxes, fairies, high-strung puppet-masters and underwater beasts. Wooden you like to join us??
