CURRENT CASTING OPPORTUNITIES

PINOCCHIO, adapted for the stage by Ian Craddock

In association with Blue Orange Arts presents.

Geppetto, a talented toy and puppet maker wishes on the Blue Fairy’s star for a son to help him in his toy shop. She grants him that wish, but as a magic boy puppet without any strings. To become a real boy Pinocchio must show kindness, bravery, loyalty and honesty, but Pinocchio is easily persuaded in having fun at the Puppet Theatre, Pleasure Island and with the likes of Cat, Fox, Candlewick, and the naughty boys and girls who are being turned into donkeys.
