From the moment Gepetto creates him from a stick of wood, Pinocchio dreams of being a real boy. But will the all-too-tempting delights of puppet shows and Playland be too much for Pinocchio? When Gepetto is swallowed by a whale, it is up to this little puppet to show his courage and prove his love for his Papa is real. This is a new, fast-paced, story-within-a-story version of the classic Pinocchio tale.
“Pinocchio is the clutch-poppingest, lustiest, take-it-to-10and-let-her-rippest most insanely creative show to come down ye olde pike in a long time.” -How Was The Show?
“CTC’s cleverly realized version of Pinocchio presents a tale anchored in stage magic so immediate and vital it may make you forget about the [Disney] version.” -StarTribune
