Return to TiE


Adapted by John Giller

This show is based on the traditional pantomime tale of the little wooden puppet who turns into a 'real' boy. This production is written and adapted for schools by John Giller, (who has been teaching, writing and directing drama and theatre productions for over 25 years and who also writes, directs and stars in Pantomime at the seaside town of Hunstanton, in West Norfolk.


Full of jokes, songs and audience participation aimed at entertaining children of all ages, but especially 5 – 11 year olds.  Will Pinocchio and his friend Jimmy Cricket outsmart the wicked and terrible Stromboli the puppet master before he captures him and locks him away to forever perform for his travelling show or will the Magical fairy help the boys outwit the baddie and return to the toy maker Geppetto to become a real boy and live happily ever after?  Only one way to find out, join them on their magical adventure, which runs for approximately 60 minutes.


The highly skilled actors of the award winning Purple Dreams Productions pull out all the stops to make this an hour of fun, laughter, interaction and song.  A truly traditional Pantomime.
