 A B O U T


Suppose a toy came to life, and wanted to be real?

Pinocchio is the wooden boy with a penchant for bending the truth. The Good Fairy, Dolce Vita, promises him the chance to become real, but only if he can be good, prove himself and manage to tell the truth! This panto follows Pinocchio on his quest to rescue his sister, Arabella, from the evil Stromboli. Look out for Lazyitis Island, where lazy children are turned into donkeys! Participate to help Pinocchio, Gepetto and friends to escape the giant whale, then persuade the good fairy, Dolce Vita, that he deserves to become a real boy. Will he ever be cured of his tendency to tell fibs?

On the journey there are songs, dancing (from the Rosina Pulley School of Dance), juggling and plenty of pantomime jokes, fun and participation.
