The fairy tale classic PINOCCHIO gets a new spin in Marc Robin's imaginative, musical version running at Marriott Theatre For Young Audiences, 10 Marriott Drive, July 15 through August 29. Marriott Theatre for Young Audiences favorite, Rachel Rockwell (Seussical, Wizard of Oz, Princess and the Pea, Aladdin), will direct and choreograph.

Pinocchio is the story of a wooden puppet that is magically given the gift of animation by the wish of a wood carver, Geppetto (Bernie Yvon), granted by a loving Blue Fairy (Cory Goodrich). Geppetto, the puppet maker, sends Pinocchio (Jameson Cooper) out into the world with his friend Hopper (Jackson Evans) with the hope that he will learn to become a real boy. On the puppet's fantastic journey, he encounters the wily team of Kitty and Fox (Ericka Mac, Richard Strimer) and an evil puppeteer (Scott Calcagno) who seeks to exploit Pinocchio's unusual talents by capturing him. Coaxed into an amazing trip to a candy island by a schoolboy named Lampwick (Adrian Aguilar) and then to the belly of a whale, Pinocchio's adventure is sure to dazzle and delight audiences of all ages.

Music, lyrics and book are by Marc Robin, with additional material by Rachel Rockwell. Directed and Choreographed by TYA Audience Favorite Rachel Rockwell, with Musical Direction by Roberta Duchak, Set and Properties Design by Jesse Gaffney, Costume Design by Nancy Missimi, Lighting Design by Jesse Klug, Sound Design by Robert E. Gilmartin, and Stage Managed by Julia Zayas-Melendez.
