Vid Kid Stage and Screen by Trish O'Brien.

&Also from Globalstage comes a new look at the old story of what happens to bad boys who don't obey their parents and what it takes to be a real boy. This production of Pinocchio employs elaborate sets and costumes and a lively cast of characters and songs. "Everyone wants spectacle," one character proclaims, and the production numbers may leave you wanting more - a good impetus to get the family to a live performance at your local community theater. (Globalstage, 94 min., $27.)
