Written and directed by award-winning, international director Greg Banks, with music by Adrian Brett, the show toured to theatres nationwide from July 2006 to April 2007

"An elementary demonstration of how to inspire a child's fantasy ... An enchanting show" - The Stage

"Refreshingly creative, innovative and full of surprises" - Bristol Evening Post

"A more powerful retelling of the original Pinocchio story than any all-singing, all-dancing, Technicolour Disney production" - South Devon Herald Express
