Red Branch Theatre Company Presents PINOCCHIO, Dec 8-16

Red Branch Theatre Company is bringing childhood favorite Pinocchio to life December 8-16 at Drama Learning Center in Columbia. Jennifer Spieler directs a unique interpretation in the commedia dell'arte style that will be sure to engage even the most familiar audiences.

Says Spieler, "the framework of the play is centered around a travelling theatre troupe presenting the story of Pinocchio, so that the aspect of theatricality is never hidden. Probably one of the most exciting things is that the style of this piece involves the audience to participate in certain moments - to engage actively in the make-believe that's being created."

RBTC will host several family-friendly holiday themed events in conjunction with the production.

The performance will kick off on December 8 with a 'Shop 'Til You Drop' Day. Parents can drop off their children for an afternoon or evening of theatre, games and crafts while they finish up their holiday shopping. Visit with the big guy himself during one of Red Branch Theatre Company's 'Santa Sightings' on December 9 and 16 or bring the kids to another 'Shop 'Til You Drop' PJ Party on December 14.
