Ignoring his father's wishes for him to go to school, Pinocchio follows his selfish desires&
and ends up on a dangerous journey, tormented by tricksters, bandits, and hoodlums. Pinocchio is much more than a story about a puppet who tells too many lies. The story examines themes of unconditional love, the importance of education, and how we determine right from wrong. Performed in the style of commedia dell'arte, the colorful sets and costumes take us back to Renaissance Italy with original songs, dancing and creative staging. This delightful video captures all the drama and nuance of live theatre.

Based on the story by Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio was adapted by Moses Goldberg, with original songs by Scott Kasbaum. The video also includes an interview with Playwright/Director Moses Goldberg and Composer Scott Kasbaum.
