About this show

Pinocchio-chan is an original stage adaptation for young audiences based on Carlo Collodi's classic "Adventures of Pinocchio." Set in a fantastical Japanese village, the play uses traditional Japanese dance and music to tell the tale of the puppet that wanted to become a real boy.  When Pinocchio ventures out to explore the world, he meets two shady kabuki actors who teach him about life on the stage then swindle him out of his money. Through his adventures, Pinocchio learns to be honest and true and to work hard at his school lessons. Pinocchio-chan includes music, dance, jokes, and audience participation to appeal to audiences from three years old on up.
