Book by Jerome Coopersmith | Music by Mary Rodgers | Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick | Based on on the children's classic by C. Collodi
The lonely old carpenter, Geppetto, carves himself a son from wood and no sooner is the job done than the boy springs to life. The timeless adventures of the puppet who yearns to be a real boy are magically brought alive with a vibrant score from the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning lyricist of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and the multi-award winning composer of ONCE UPON A MATTRESS. This beloved children's classic, devised for a combined cast of puppets and live actors, still amazes and delights, while instilling in youngsters the dangers of selfishness, the importance of honesty, and the power of love.

Materials Notes

This version of PINOCCHIO is designed for a combined cast of live actors and puppets. In the original production the characters of Gepetto, Alex, and Fireball were played by live actos, while all the rest were puppets. There were times in the original staging when a character played by a life actor in most of the scenes would be played by a small puppet in other scenes to simulate a distant view of that character.
