The much-loved family favourite – The Amazing Adventures of Pinocchio – is getting an Immersion Theatre makeover in a brand-new musical adaptation which will be touring the UK Spring 2019.
Inspired by the fantastical children’s book, this magical story leaps off the page and onto the stage in this high energy re-telling of Pinocchio’s extraordinary adventures. Packed with comedy, audience interaction, and a host of new songs guaranteed to have you singing along from start to finish, this high energy musical promises to be the perfect treat for the whole family, no strings attached!
The Amazing Adventures of Pinocchio is written and directed by Immersion Theatre’s Artistic Director James Tobias and composed by Robert Gathercole. Together, the pair have created musical adaptations of Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Wind in the Willows, and The Wizard of Oz, all of which have gone on to have successful UK tours.
James Tobias said: “Having worked together so many times, Rob and I have developed a clear understanding of the style of show we enjoy creating: high-energy, pacey scripts with frustratingly catchy songs which serve to create a larger-than-life introduction to classic stories for youngsters which older generations can enjoy just as much. I adore all things family theatre so look forward to working on this wonderful story.”
The Amazing Adventures of Pinocchio will be coming to Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre on Sat 30 Mar, 1:30pm.
