WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"My father made me out of love and a log. He worked all night and when he was finished, he said I was the sweetest thing he'd ever seen," says Pinocchio.

"No, no no," sneers the sinister Stromboli, "that's not your story. You're an orphan. Nobody wanted you, but you rose above it all to become a big star and the world loves you! Got it?"

With bold ballads, angsty anthems and a plot knotted with tabloid twists, Carlo Collodi's classic tale about a wooden boy with a nose for trouble gets remastered in this psychedelic rock musical. Tenderly tooled by the lonely Gepetto, Pinocchio takes a walk on the wild side when the need to belong gives way to temptations of fun, fame and the dream of becoming a real boy. Last seen at the Sydney Opera House, this "really brilliant musical for kids" (Time Out Sydney) is a visually stunning, must-see production.
