Venue: Lyric Theatre
The creative team behind the Lyric’s hit shows Alice the Musical and Peter Pan the Musical return with a brand new musical version of the greatest magical adventure of all time - Pinocchio The Greatest Wonder of the Age.
When evil circus-owner Swallowfire realises that she has finally discovered the location of the mythical Tree of Truth she sets up her carnival sideshow next to it. The Tree is said to grant a heart’s desire, and Swallowfire has plans to use its magic so that her circus becomes the greatest in the world. One day Swallowfire finds a piece of the tree and asks a local carpenter to carve a new attraction from it - a wooden boy. That night the fairy that lives in the Tree brings Pinocchio to life.
