Disney's My Son Pinocchio JR
Jun 6 - 8, 2014
In DISNEY’S MY SON PINOCCHIO JR., the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto’s little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by Oscar- and Grammy Award-winner and master melodist Stephen Schwartz, tackling timely issues about what it means to be “the perfect child” – and what it means to be “a real father.”
Join the Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of characters as Geppetto journeys beyond the toy shop to discover the meaning of family. Disney’s MY SON PINOCCHIO JR. is perfect for a dynamic cast of middle school performers and is a magical mix of heartwarming fairy tale and action-packed adventure. Audiences will love following Pinocchio's journey from an awkward wooden puppet to a real live boy and will be charmed by Geppetto's transformation from demanding creator to real live father.
