Catch Pinnochio at the Baxter

From left are Desle McConney of Athlone as Jiminy Cricket; Kirsten Murphy Rossiter of Oranjezicht as the Blue Fairy; Ameera Juta of Pinelands as Pinocchio; and Dean van der Ventel of Goodwood as Fox.

The Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company will be performing Pinocchio from Monday July 3 until Saturday July 8 at the Baxter Theatre, at 10.30am.

Pinocchio is based on the Carlo Collodi classic of the little wooden puppet who has to prove himself to be honest and trustworthy before he can become a real boy, with help and guidance from Jiminy Cricket and the Blue Fairy. Follow Pinocchio and Gepetto on their adventures to Stromboli’s Puppet Theatre and inside a whale. Watch Pinocchio’s nose grow as he lies to Gepetto and see Jiminy Cricket magically turn into a life-size cricket.

The production has been adapted by Elton John Duffy of Edgemead.

Tickets are R75. Book at Computicket. For school block booking prices or queries, contact Elton on or 083 364 8284 or 021 558 2650.
