The story tells of Geppetto’s son Pinocchio, a wooden puppet who is desperate to become a real boy.
On his journey of discovery, he encounters a cat and a fox (who are definitely crooks), the Blue Fairy (who operates from a Wishing Star), Jiminy Cricket (who becomes Pinocchio’s conscience figure), as well as many other weird and wacky characters. It's a cautionary tale of a child's journey and a father's unconditional love.
Veteran stage, television and film actor TOBIE CRONJÉ returns to the panto, this time as the gentle woodcarver Geppetto. Popular theatre and television actor ANDRE SCHWARTZ also returns to panto, as the mischievous Fox.
