Cortland Repertory Theatre’s Pinocchio

Posted by  //  July 17, 2016  //  Arts & Live Music, News

July 22 and 23 at 10am, Little York Pavilion, Dwyer Park, Little York. In this funny, charming and interactive re-telling of the classic Italian tale, lonely Gepetto the woodcarver longs to have a son to whom he can pass on his knowledge of woodcarving and artistry. He creates a wooden puppet but alas, a piece of wood just doesn’t provide much in the way of conversation! A friendly cricket overhears Gepetto and convinces the mysterious Blue Fairy (who is suffering from a head cold) to bring the puppet to life…and she does! Pinocchio is still made of wood, however, but longs to be a real boy for his father. The cricket offers advice and the Blue Fairy tells him that he must earn the right to become a real boy. Pinocchio sets out on his own to earn this right, but when he falls into the clutches of a conniving Red Fox and sneaky Black Cat, he is led through many challenges, predicaments and life lessons before he is able to learn what it means to become a loving son. While aimed for young audience members in the Kindergarten thru 5th grade age range, our children’s’ theatre productions are great fun for the whole family!
