This musical is a modern take on the traditional story in which Geppetto carves the puppet Pinocchio from a magical log, and then sells his own coat so he can afford to send Pinocchio to school. On his way to school, the gullible Pinocchio encounters Fox and Cat, who cleverly con him out of his school money. Cricket tries to get Pinocchio to return home, but the puppet boy goes on an adventure where he meets the Blues Fairy, Mary Annette, and Dipstick. He gets into all kinds of trouble and finally learns that things aren’t always what they seem. Finally doing something for someone else, he risks his life to rescue Geppetto and takes care of him when he’s sick. Pinocchio becomes selfless and hardworking and finally gets what he wants most. The show is fun and funny, with exuberant songs and dances.
