Pinocchio: North Carolina Theatre for Young People

The North Carolina Theatre for Young People presents Pinocchio, by Greg Banks, and based on the story by Carlo Collodi. 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 NEWFAST-PACED, story-within-a-story version of the classic Pinocchio tale.
