About

This much-loved tale sees Steve Tiplday, as Geppetto, use the objects of a carpenter’s workshop to tell the tale of a puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father.

Pinocchio is carved on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transforms into a giant shark. An element of improvisation makes each performance unique to its audience.

Puppetry, shadows, illusion and especially composed music combine to create a show with something for all ages; it’s inventive and witty with a big heart.

Suitable for 4 + years and their grown-ups.
