A lively musical version of Carlo Collodi’s classic tale about a willful little wooden marionette who runs away from the carpenter, Gepetto, and straight into one fantastic adventure after another. On his journey, Pinocchio joins a troupe of commedia-style marionettes, loses his gold coin to a cunning fox and cat, meets the Magical Blue Fairy, and makes a thrilling escape from the Land of Ease, where lazy boys turn into donkeys. With lessons learned, Pinocchio returns to the arms of his father and the realization that he has become a real boy.
