2015 - 2016 Season
Playhouse 1960 offers up the holiday treat Disney’s My Son Pinocchio, Gepetto’s Musical Tale, opening December 4 and running through December 19. The performances run on Friday and Saturdays at 8:00 pm. In Disney's My Son Pinocchio, the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto's little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto's perspective, features the beloved classic songs "When You Wish Upon a Star" and "I've Got No Strings," alongside a host of new songs by Oscar- and Grammy Award-winner and master melodist Stephen Schwartz, tackling timely issues about what it means to be "the perfect child" - and what it means to be "a real father." Join the Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of characters as Geppetto journeys beyond the toy shop to discover the meaning of family. When the Blue Fairy grants Geppetto's wish to bring his beloved puppet to life, the new father quickly learns that being a parent is full of challenges. He struggles to make his son "the perfect boy" only to lose him to a gang of Roustabouts. It is only when faced the thought of never seeing Pinocchio again that Geppetto truly learns the joys of being a father and loving your child unconditionally. This family-friendly musical is appropriate for all audiences and is a magical mix of heartwarming fairytale and action-packed adventure. Audiences will love following Pinocchio's journey from an awkward wooden puppet to a real, live boy and will be charmed by Geppetto's transformation from demanding creator to a real, live father.
