Immersion Theatre Announces Full Cast of THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO
Immersion Theatre present the cast for their brand new, larger-than-life musical adaptation of the much-loved classic, Pinocchio!
Corey Jones returns to play the most famous puppet of all, Pinocchio, after a show-stealing performance as the title role in Immersion Theatre's Peter Pan last year. He will be joined by Aveen Biddle taking on the role of Pinocchio's right-hand insect, Cricket, alongside William Hazell as the sly and smooth Fox. William is re-joining Immersion Theatre hot off the back of his appearance as Dame Cecily Sweetlove in Dick Whittington at the Kenton Theatre in Henley this Christmas.
The cast is completed by Grace Galloway as the Blue Fairy and Cat, and Will Bryant appearing as the puppet maker Gepetto, as well as a number of other roles.
Inspired by Carlo Collodi's fantastical children's book, this magical story leaps off the page and onto the stage in a vibrant re-telling of Pinocchio's extraordinary adventures. Packed with comedy, audience interaction, and a completely original score guaranteed to have you singing along from start to finish, this high energy musical promises to be the perfect treat for the whole family.
You'll have a whale of a time, no strings attached!
