Hale Centre Theatre has done it again! I had the chance last week to go and see My Son Pinocchio on Hale’s Jewel Box Stage and it was AMAZING!! Do you have your tickets yet?
Hale Centre Theatre has lowered the minimum age from five to three years old for this special family production that features the famous songs I’ve Got No Strings, When You Wish Upon a Star and additional music from Wicked composer, Stephen Schwartz.
I took both of my girls to this performance and they LOVED it! In fact, they are asking when we can go back and see it again!
If you haven’t read my review of the new Theatre, make sure to check it out!
My Son Pinocchio is truly a magical tale and a must-see for all Disney fans! I thought it would be fun for my girls but I truly loved it. This is a spin on the classic story that we love. It’s told from Geppetto’s point of view and we get to see how much he learns about being a father. Both Gepetto and Pinocchio learn to love each other and accept one another, flaws and all!
The talent in this show is spectacular and the scenes, costumes, and props are stunning! The attention to detail is everything that you would expect from Hale!
In this classic story, Geppetto the wood carver, creates a wooden puppet he names Pinocchio. After Geppetto wishes upon a star that Pinocchio would become a real living, breathing boy, the dazzling Blue Fairy grants his wish. But parenthood is not as easy as Geppetto dreamed it to be. Pinocchio struggles to live up to being “the perfect son” and runs away, leaving Geppetto heartbroken and searching to find him. When faced with the possibility of never seeing Pinocchio again, thanks to the evil Stromboli, Geppetto learns what it means to love his child unconditionally.
“Pinocchio is written to entertain children, but there are very beautiful, smart and profound truths that are layered into the story,” said Dave Tinney, producer of My Son Pinocchio: Geppetto’s Musical Tale. “There are 18 kids performing in the show between the two casts, ranging from eight to 12 years old, and they are as professional as the adults. The difference between the two seems to only be age and sometimes, stature. Our child actors haven’t lost their belief in the magic of pretending and are truly little pros! It’s a delight to see such a young cast put on such an admirable show.”
- Mon, Thurs, Fri, and Sat evenings at 7:30 p.m.
- Sat Matinees at 12:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
- This special engagement is open to children ages three and up to attend.
