Originally produced at Chicago Shakespeare Theater, a new musical adaptation of Pinocchio receives its UK premiere at Greenwich Theatre this summer.

Based on Carlo Collodi’s classic tale, Pinocchio tells the story of a wooden puppet yearning to be a real boy. Carved out of wood by the lonely toymaker Geppetto, Pinocchio tumbles from one disastrous situation to another in search of adventure only to discover that, in the end, all he really needs is an unselfish heart and the love of his father.

Written by the Broadway and Disney writing duo Neil Bartram and Brian Hill (The Story Of My Life, Bedknobs And Broomsticks), this family musical brings a new vision of the timeless story to the stage, springing to life with inventive and awe-inspiring puppetry, live musicians, singers and performers.
