The story about a puppet that comes to life and becomes a real boy is known throughout the world and staging the story using puppets is a challenge for any company.
Using a mixture of long string marionettes and rod puppets, Pinocchio is carved on stage, comes alive and sets off on his many adventures. He performs on a marionette stage within the puppet show meeting two clowns, Harlequin and Pulcinell; he is tricked by a cat and a fox into burying and losing his newly earned money; he flies on the back of a pigeon and he is chased and swallowed by a huge shark. Finally of course, the magic Blue Fairy lends a hand because Pinocchio has learnt to be good and at the very end he becomes a real boy.
The production is given great energy by the specially composed music of local musician Bill Lloyd.
