Area premiere of the retelling of a classic fairy tale.
A Real Boy
Written by Jeff Downing
When Geppetto’s latest wooden creation magically comes to life, a new story begins for an unlikely father and son. From one adventure to another, Pinocchio approaches his life with a courageous spirit and innocent optimism, while Geppetto realizes that fatherhood is more than he ever imagined it to be. But when Pinocchio learns that it’s not only his wooden frame that makes him different from the other boys, he must look within to discover what it truly means to be a real boy. This original theatrical event presents Pinocchio as a gay fairy tale hero and features a small ensemble bringing Pinocchio’s magical world to life. A family friendly adventure with sophisticated undertones and explores the joys and trials of parenthood and the importance of being true to yourself.
