From the moment Gepetto creates him from a stick of wood, Pinocchio dreams of becoming a real boy. But can the little puppet with the long wooden nose prove that he’s learned to be brave and unselfish; or will the all-too-tempting delights of Playland prove to be too much for him. This new, fast paced story-within-a-story version of the classic tale will capture your attention and keep you rooting for the “Real Boy”.
