Pinocchio

6 September - 28 September
Merlyn Theatre
Book Now

Once there was a lonely man with lots of love to give. He wanted a child so much that he carved himself a beautiful little boy. But the boy wanted the world and the latest designer sneakers. He wanted fame, celebrity and to walk on the wild side. He was lured by temptation and the love of a blue girl. This woodenhead wanted more than his father could possibly give, and so he ran away to get it. This is his story.

Based on the classic tale by Carlo Collodi and from the team that brought you the six-time Helpmann Award nominated Wizard of Oz (2009), Pinocchio is boldly retold as a witty, rocking, music theatre spectacular; a mix of old time theatre fun and a celebration of the ‘whatever’ generation.

Duration 2 hours, 10 minutes including 20 minute interval.
Ages 8+
Warning strobe effects and  haze.

... enough wit and magic to keep all the family spellbound.

As Pinocchio, Nathan O'Keefe is a delight: from his stringy walk to his crackling lie-detector nose, his performance is anything but wooden.
— The Australian
The lofty standards that characterise every show from Windmill Theatre rise to new heights in a new take on a classic morality tale.
