Meet the Blue Fairy as she leads us on a magical journey through this retelling of the classic story. One day, Geppetto, the poor, old toymaker, finds an extraordinary piece of talking wood. He brings it home and decides to make it into a puppet named Pinocchio. Disagreeable Pinocchio immediately gets into trouble and learns important lessons. When he bullies a little cricket, he's reminded to respect others. When he runs away, gets lost and tries to find his way home, he's reminded of the wonderful life he had with Geppetto. When Pinocchio decides he no longer wants to be a puppet but a real boy, the Blue Fairy steps in and reminds him that if he wants to be real, he has to be good. During his journey home, Pinocchio meets Mr. Big, the producer; Fox, the trickster; Mr. Bunksterburger, the carnival owner; and the whale, who gives Pinocchio a taste of his own bullying medicine. Through his adventures, Pinocchio learns that respecting other people, telling the truth and being good will make his dreams come true. With an emphasis on anti-bullying for prekindergarten through second-grade audiences, Pinocchio will teach as well as entertain. Filled with original music, sing-alongs and interactivity, audiences will enjoy every minute of this show!

Customer Reviews

"As the Director of this play, I had an absolute blast. ... The story of Pinocchio is so heart-warming. This version of the play is extremely well-written. The interaction with the audience is perfect. The songs are so catchy and fun. The sing-a-long portions were delightful. There are so many ways that you can make this production fun for young audiences with such a great script. If you are looking for something for young performers or even a TYA show, this one is WONDERFUL! Also, I really appreciate the lessons learned throughout and how well they were incorporated. What a fun show to Direct!"
