PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS NOT A TYPICAL VERSION OF "PINOCCHIO".  IT TAKES ON THE STYLE OF OLD HOLLYWOOD DETECTIVE MOVIES FROM THE 1930s AND 1940s. IT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THE STYLE.

SYNOPSIS

When a woodcarver’s beloved puppet, who is like a son to him, turns up missing, the classic children’s tale becomes a comical take on Hollywood true detective stories. Lured astray by a slick Fox and Cat duo, Pinocchio’s troubles with the truth only continue to grow, setting off an unpredictable chain of events, driven by bigger and bigger lies.

PRODUCTION RUN SEPTEMBER 26-29 (There will be TWO DAYS of daytime performances for school groups).
REHEARSALS BEGIN September 3
REQUIREMENTS

Cold reading from script.  Use a New York or New Jersey accent, if possible.  Please bring a recent headshot or photo and be prepared to provide rehearsal conflicts.

*PLEASE USE GREEN ROOM ENTRANCE AT REAR OF BUILDING AT 27 E. TENNESSEE AVE.
