Description

 Peninsula Youth Theatre presents another side of the beloved story of the little wooden puppet that wants to become a real boy in Disney’s My Son Pinocchio

Disney’s My Son Pinocchio tells the familiar story from Gepetto’s point of view. As he tells the Blue Fairy, “I wished for my heart to be full, and you gave me a talking puppet.” A puppet that doesn’t follow rules, embarrasses him in front of the neighbors and has no interest in the family business — in short, a puppet that behaves just like a real little boy! 

Disney’s My Son Pinocchio features music from Stephen Schwartz, the mastermind behind Wicked, Godspell and Pippin, as well as songs from the Disney animated classic including “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings.” 

The production is directed by Michael Champlin, with musical direction by Tony Gaitan and choreography by Katie O’Bryon.
