Pinocchio is one of the most beloved and timeless of all children’s tales. Now Ballet Theatre UK are bringing their enchanting production to Blackpool Grand this May, delighting audiences of all ages.
Pinnochio is a cheeky wooden marionette puppet who has one wish – to become a real boy. But he also has an unruly nose, a nose which grows every time he tells a lie. Audiences will be charmed as they follow Pinocchio’s epic quest of self-discovery, which sees him overcome obstacles, face the consequences of his actions, and even find himself in the belly of a whale.
Featuring all the best-loved characters, including Gepetto, The Blue Fairy and Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio is certain to be a hit with adults and children alike.
Made famous by the 1940 Disney film, this traditional Italian tale of morals and big dreams has been reworked into a stunning stage production by the same company that charmed audiences with The Little Mermaid in 2014.
Told through heart-warming dance, beautiful costumes and a moving classical score, this easily accessible and enjoyable production is a must-see for lifelong ballet lovers and a brilliant introduction for families and newcomers to dance and theatre.
Pinocchio comes to Blackpool Grand Theatre on Wednesday 18 May. Tickets are available from blackpoolgrand.co.uk or by calling 01253 290190.
