Pinocchio is running in The Round at the Lancaster venue until Saturday, January 7.

The renowned and award-winning children’s writer, Christopher William Hill has adapted Carlo Collodi’s captivating and enduring popular tale to transform it into a treat for all the family, with a cast of wonderful characters and crammed full of joy, music, puppets and songs.

Pinocchio is the story of a wooden puppet who magically springs to life and along with a smart-talking sidekick, sets off on a journey to become a real boy. But life is tough when you’re made of wood and your nose just won’t stop growing.

Director and Dukes Associate Artist Louie Ingham said: “Pinocchio is a fun and fast-paced show, taking the audience on a thrilling and memorable theatrical adventure ride while staying true to all the elements of the original story.”
