About the Show
The show “My Son Pinocchio: Geppetto’s Musical Tale” is a musical that follows everyone’s favorite story of Pinocchio, but from the perspective of Geppetto. See the story from a new point of view when Geppetto, the toymaker, has his wooden puppet come to life and turn into the son he always wanted.
As a musical, you will have some of your favorite songs from the original Pinocchio movie, including “I’ve Got No Strings” and “When You Wish Upon a Star.” There are also plenty of fun new songs from Stephen Schwartz, the winner of Oscars and Grammys.
Great for the Whole Family
As with most performances from the Palestine Community Theatre, this show is family friendly and features a range of local talent. The lessons you will revisit during the performance are also great for the whole family, including what being a real father or the perfect child really is.
