Pinocchio

Touring January 2020

Pinocchio is the ever-popular tale of the little wooden puppet who dreams of being a real boy. This brand new theatrical adaptation from Nottingham Playhouse (creators of The Elves and the Shoemaker and Town Mouse and Country Mouse), includes incredible adventures, original songs, two brilliant actors and of course that pesky extendable nose.

Pinocchio is a brilliantly enjoyable story with themes of family and growing up responsibly. It’s a perfect tale for reception and key stages 1 and 2.

New for this year, included in the package for every school, in addition to the production itself is:

  • Our brand new Interactive Q&A – a chance for all of the children (and teachers) in the audience to meet the actors, learn about how the show was made, play some games and ask lots of questions!
