Join us as we bring Pinocchio to life this Christmas! This adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s classic tale follows an inquisitive young puppet, carved from wood by the lonely toymaker Geppetto, on a mischievous journey to discover what it takes to become a real boy.
Venturing from the safety of Geppetto’s workshop, Pinocchio finds himself in a series of chaotic situations, narrowly escaping the clutches of Mangiafuoco’s Puppet Theatre, the depths of the ocean and the Land of Toys.
The production is 1 hour 50 minutes (including interval)
