About the show
Summer holiday fun with The Adventures Of Pinocchio musical at the Ambassador’s Theatre.
See in the summer holidays with a brand new family musical at the Ambassador’s Theatre. Based on Carlo Collodi’s classic story, The Adventures Of Pinocchio sees one of Britain’s best-loved fairy tales transformed for the stage.
Bronagh Langan directs The Adventures Of Pinocchio, while Neil Bartram provides music and lyrics, and Brian Hill wrote the book. Bartram and Hill’s other projects include a stage version of Disney’s Bedknobs And Broomsticks.
Pinocchio is a little wooden puppet. Created by the toymaker Geppetto, all he wants is to be a real boy. So he heads out on countless adventures to try to make this wish come true. But adventure is harder to come by than the plucky puppet imagines. As disaster waits around every corner, Pinocchio starts to realise that what he really needs is an open, honest heart and to love his father.
The British Theatre Academy stages The Adventures Of Pinocchio. The company returns to the West End following its production of The Secret Garden in 2016. Based on the famous children’s novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, that production was a specially shortened version of the Tony Award-winning musical.
The Stage awarded The Secret Garden four stars. They described it as “evocatively beautiful” and also praised the company for staging such an ambitious project using an ensemble of over 300 performers.
We think this one looks like a whole lot of fun – and we would never, ever lie to you.
The Adventures Of Pinocchio runs from 26 July – 30 August 2017 at the Ambassador’s Theatre.
