The Dubai Panto team brings you the age old story of Pinocchio - adapted from the original book by Carl Collodi in 1883 about the mischievous adventures of an animated marionette - one of the most famous Italian books of all time.
This is a moral tale of good triumphing over evil – when the gentle woodcarver Geppetto creates a marionette, Pinocchio, to be his substitute son, a benevolent fairy brings the toy to life. However the puppet is not a human boy and must earn the right to be ‘real' by proving he is brave, truthful and unselfish.
Join us as we follow Pinocchio on this journey - encountering a wily fox, a cunning cat, a naughty boy and the Ring Master of the Fairground. The story culminates in Pinocchio trying to save Geppetto who has been shipwrecked and swallowed by a whale - but will he be allowed to become a ‘real’ boy?
This is a fun filled musical adaption portrayed in a colourful setting.
This production will appeal to children of all ages!
