From the 8th to the 28th July, the Dunstan Playhouse at the Adelaide Festival Centre, will be playing host to the brand new family musical 'Pinocchio'.
This will be presented by the Windmill Theatre & the State Theatre Company Of South Australia and is for ages 08 - 108!
Although based on the classic tale by Carlo Collodi, this version of the famous 'Pinocchio', is boldly retold as a witty, gothic, rocking family piece of music theatre spectacular. This particular version of 'Pinocchio' is a contemporary celebration of the 'whatever' generation.
It features Nathan O'Keefe, who was such a blast in 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare - abridged', which ran at the Festival Centre around a year ago now. The guy just has surplus energy, which, with so much enthusiasm,you can only enjoy his performance. What can I say? I have become a huge fan. It remains only for you to make up your mind too, and go see 'Pinocchio' at the Dunstan Playhouse, for yourself.
This Pinocchio, probably like a lot of children nowadays, wants the world and the latest designer sandshoes as well. This makes him fair game for the lure of temptation and the love of a blue girl.
