pinocchio version 5

Big Monkey Theatre is excited to announce our next production in the Botanical Gardens for 2015-2016 will be one of our most popular shows, Pinocchio! This colourful adaptation, by Les Winspear, has all the charm of the original story, with a cast of madcap characters and catchy songs to carry you through one of the most renowned children’s stories of all time.

Pinocchio, the cheeky wooden puppet, wants to have fun and live life to the full but most of all he wants to be a real boy. As he sets out to fulfil his dream he is soon tricked and led astray, then forced to learn life’s lessons the hard way.

This is a timeless tale of adventure, mischief, hope and magic.

A vibrant journey of the imagination where anything is possible and trouble is just around the corner.

Be part of Tasmania’s most popular theatre for children and a fantastic end-of-year activity for your school!
