Pinocchio At Civic Theatre

Take a trip to a small Italian village where Gepetto and other merchants work hard but still have time for wishes and reams. Gepetto’s latest creation, a boy-sized puppet is brought to life by the Blue Fairy who names him Pinocchio.

After an exciting journey to rescue his Papa from a giant whale, Pinocchio is granted the greatest gift of all – he becomes a REAL boy!
