Once there was a lonely man with lots of love to give. He wanted a child so much that he carved himself a beautiful little boy. But the boy wanted the world and the latest designer sneakers. He wanted fame, celebrity and to walk on the wild side. He was lured by temptation and the love of a blue girl. This woodenhead wanted more than his father could possibly give, and so he ran away to get it. This is his story.

Based on the classic tale by Carlo Collodi and from the team that brought you the six-time Helpmann Award nominated Wizard of Oz (2009), Pinocchio is boldly retold as a witty, rocking, music theatre spectacular; a mix of old time theatre fun and a celebration of the ‘whatever’ generation.

‘Created by veteran director Rosemary Myers, this production takes Pinocchio on a journey full of twists and turns, while mixing in themes from the original tale.’
