A little wooden marionette is lovingly created by a master craftsmen... but what a bad little puppet he turns out to be! He's selfish and greedy, and he lies. He doesn't listen to the good council of anyone: his father Gepetto, a philosopher Cricket, or a Blue Fairy. After many hair raising adventures, Pinocchio finally learns what it takes to become human... kindness, compassion, loyalty, hard work and selflessness. Presented by the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company. Recommended for children ages 4 and older.
