Pinocchio to celebrate World Book Day

Schools and families can enjoy an innovative production of classic children’s story Pinocchio to celebrate World Book Day at The Courtyard this March.

Puppetry, shadows, illusion, and specially composed music combine to create a show that’s visually inventive and verbally witty.

Pinocchio is carved live on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transform into a giant shark as Geppetto uses objects from a carpenter’s workshop to tell the tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father.

The Courtyard Education team are offering drama workshops for schools based around the classic tale of Pinocchio. These sessions will be a fantastic addition for those coming to watch the show, but can also be delivered as stand-alone sessions. Bursaries are available to cover travel. To find out more or to book a workshop, please contact the Education team via email or phone 01432 346536.

Pinocchio is recommended for ages 4+.

Pinocchio will be in The Courtyard’s Main House on Thursday 2 March at 11am & 1pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit
