Roll Up, Roll Up! And enjoy the greatest show on earth…
When hard-up lonely old carpenter Gepetto carves his very own puppet, he gets more than he bargained for. The magical blue fairy turns his beautiful wooden creation, Pinocchio, into something he always longed for, a child to call his own.
Keen for Pinocchio to fit in and make friends, Gepetto sends them to school… but Pinocchio has other ideas!
Meeting a whole host of shady characters on their travels, Pinocchio, with the help of Cricket, must try to be brave, truthful and selfless as they navigate the joys and dangers of the world, learning the hard way about consequences on their journey to becoming real.
Join Pinocchio on the adventure of a lifetime in this heart-warming and fantastical tale about coming-of-age, loyalty, hardship, redemption and unconditional love.
Mike Kenny (The Railway Children) has re-imagined this much-loved classic family favourite alongside composer and co-lyricist John Biddle (A Christmas Carol, Peter Pan) to include original songs that have become a much-loved part of Hull Truck Theatre’s Christmas show. This action-packed production will be filled with quirky original music, energetic dance routines and spectacular set and costume designs, making it a magical festive experience for audiences to remember for years to come.
