Pinocchio

Children’s classic comes to life this Christmas
Pinocchio

THIS PRODUCTION TAKES PLACE AT TRAMWAY (25 ALBERT DRIVE, G41 2PE)

A Citizens Theatre production in association with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

By Carlo Collodi. Written by Robert Alan Evans. Adapted for the stage by Robert Alan Evans and Lu Kemp

Follow the mischievous Pinocchio on his journey from wooden puppet to real boy.

On his action-packed quest, Pinocchio travels from the cobbled streets of his home town to the tempting lights of Playland, via the dangers of the dark woods and the belly of a giant whale! Along the way he meets a host of colourful characters and with the help of wise Cricket and kind Geppetto Pinocchio learns the importance of telling the truth and discovers what it means to be truly human.

Full of magic and adventure, this production embraces the vivid inventiveness of the original tale and will enchant the whole family this Christmas.

Pinocchio will be presented at Tramway whilst the Citizens Theatre building undergoes an exciting redevelopment. For details on how to get to Tramway click here
