Written and directed by Paul Goetzee

In the Italian hills in the nineteenth century, a kindly wood carver discovers a magical piece of pine and begins to shape a boy. As Pinocchio is brought to life, his search for independence and fun lead him through dangers including menacing robbers and jealous puppets. Will Pinocchio learn that honesty is the way to happiness or will his lies prevail and reward him with the excitement he craves?

Join us for a perfect family adventure this Christmas as this magical production brings Pinocchio to life.

Suitable for children aged five years plus, and their families.
