Extraordinary puppeteer Steve Tiplady returns to Little Angel Theatre with this innovative show that has delighted audiences across the globe. As Geppetto, Steve uses the objects of 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.
Pinocchio is actually carved on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transforms into a giant shark. With a mixture of masterful improvisation and well-practiced performance, Pinocchio comes to life before our very eyes.
Puppetry, shadows, illusion and especially composed live music combine to create a show with something for all ages; it’s inventive, visually and verbally witty, with a big heart.
“Wonderful work that celebrates the possibilities of theatre” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“Truly magical…captivating…hauntingly real” The Scotsman
