The traditional Italian story of a wooden puppet yearning to be a real boy springs to life with inventive and awe-inspiring puppetry. 

Carved out of wood by the lonely toymaker Geppetto, Pinocchio tumbles from one disastrous situation to another in search of adventure—only to discover that, in the end, all he really needs is an unselfish heart and the love of his father.

Based on Carlo Collodi's classic tale, this family musical illuminates the bond between parents and children in a magical performance that is sure to enchant audiences of all ages!
