The story of Pinocchio, written by Carlo Collodi, was first published in Italy in 1883.
We've adapted the original text for our own, unique production.
Our story follows the adventures of a wooden marionette brought to life by magic.
A delightfully curious character, Pinocchio is the embodiment of childhood innocence: truly pure at heart, but lacking the experience to make good choices.
Through Pinocchio's encounters with outlandish characters that run the gamut from cruel and manipulative to compassionate and heroic, he learns the difference between right and wrong, the value of family, and what it means to be "real." It is a heartwarming tale, full to the brim with precepts just as valid now as they were when Pinocchio was written. We're thrilled to give our Heartland spin to this unforgettable story, and we welcome you to join us when it's time for the curtain to go up!
