Adapted by Dorothy Dayton Stone.
Cast: 8 children, extras. The puppet Pinocchio has one dream: he wants to be a real boy. But it seems he may never bring it off for he jumps from one piece of mischief into another. He is disrespectful to kindly Gepetto. He goes to the puppet show when he should be in school and even sells his spelling book. When he meets the bad boy Candlewick, Pinocchio easily consents to run off to the Land of Hooky! When he gets there, he becomes a donkey. With the help of the Blue Fairy, Pinocchio escapes and, at long last, realizes his dream. Multiple simple sets. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
