It all began with an ordinary block of wood…

Welcome to the fantastical – and dark – world of Pinocchio… An epic adventure of danger, villainy and excitement, told through multiple characters, mask, puppetry, song and plenty of hilarious audience interaction!

An engaging, innovative reimagining of Carlo Collodi’s cautionary tale about the little wooden puppet who wants to become a real boy. Don’t miss this magical and unique adaptation that draws on the traditions of the travelling storytellers of a bygone era and – of course – Commedia dell’Arte.

Rosa Campagnaro’s credentials as a physical theatre practitioner and expert in Commedia dell’ Arte are impressive and the Australian theatre scene is reaping the benefits of her fantastic artistry.
