The Adventures of Pinocchio – Through February 6. Children’s Theatre Association’s adaptation of The Adventures of Pinocchio is based on the classic tale about a woodcarver, Geppetto, who creates a life-sized puppet with the wish that “his finest work of art” could become a real boy who he could call his son. Through the magic of the Blue Fairy, Geppetto’s wish is granted and Pinocchio “comes alive”. The Blue Fairy, however, explains to Pinocchio that although he is almost “real” he must prove himself worthy in order to become a real boy and son. The Adventures of Pinocchio is full of fun characters, animals and music that will make for a lively, fun and heartwarming experience. If your heart is in your dreams, wishes can come true! Bill Starr directs the play, with musical direction from Bill Keck. Producers are CTA members Elizabeth Baker and Debbie Mitchell.
