Pinocchio  
The Little Theater LA Pinocchio
 
Popular and appropriate for children ages 3 and up, LATC’s production is interactive and filled with dancing and creative movement, music, sound effects, and magic! Pinocchio at first droops motionless atop the work table on which he was carved. But as Geppetto the puppet-maker looks away to reach for a paint brush, Pinocchio leaps across the table. The puppet master can't understand how the wooden figure seems to change its position every time he glances away, and the kids in the audience roar with laughter as they wait for Geppetto to discover what they already know: Pinocchio is no ordinary puppet. Before long, Geppetto and his creation are carrying on like old friends, and one of the play's most amusing sequences is Pinocchio trying to master the difficult skills of walking and talking. The puppet points to a foot and calls it his nose; he motions to a chair, calling it a school. And once he has the vocabulary thoroughly confused, he jumps from the table to test his rickety puppet legs. He bobs around the workshop with the greatest finesse, until the momentum of his effort sends him tumbling into a high speed pratfall. Pinocchio's curiosity leads him, of course, to run away from home in the pursuit of adventure, and ends up with a long nose for all his mischief and trouble. In the end, however, Pinocchio finally proves that he's learned to be brave and unselfish. The Blue Fairy grants the lonely Geppetto's wish for a son of his own, and Pinocchio awakens to find that he has become a real boy at last.
