    After a year of successful productions, Olivier Award-winning director John Tiffany returns to the National Theatre to direct an enchanting adaptation of Walt Disney’s 1940 animation Pinocchio. Brought to the stage by some the extraordinary teams behind Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Matilda the Musical, Pinocchio plays for a limited festive season.

    Based on the well-known fairy-tale of the puppet who just wants to become a real boy, Pinocchio follows a young puppet-boy on a quest to become truly alive. With a nose that grows whenever he tells a lie, the story sees Pinocchio leave Geppetto’s workshop with Jiminy Cricket to embark on an electrifying adventure through alpine forests, Pleasure Island and the bottom of the ocean.

    A rollercoaster journey full of fun, frivolity and danger, the National Theatre production includes the unforgettable score from the original film, including “I’ve Got No Strings”, “Give a Little Whistle” and “When You Wish Upon a Star”. Moulded into stunning new arrangements, Pinocchio comes to life as no one has ever seen it.

    Casting includes Stuart Angell, Trieve Blackwood-Cambridge, Audrey Brisson, Stephanie Bron, James Charlton, Gershwyn Eustache Jnr, Mark Hadfield, Joe Idris-Roberts, Rebecca Jayne-Davies, Linford Johnson, Sarah Kameela Impey, David Kirkbride, Anabel Kutay, David Langham, Michael Lin, Annette McLaughlin, Jack North, Dawn Sievewright, Clemmie Sveass, Michael Taibi, Scarlet Wilderink and Jack Wolfe.

    Directed by John Tiffany (The Glass Menagerie, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Pinocchio is adapted by Dennis Kelly (Matilda the Musical), with songs from the Walt Disney film by Leigh Harline, Ned Washington and Paul J Smith, adapted by Martin Lowe. The production features design by Bob Crowley, lighting design by Paule Constable, sound design by Simon Baker and illusions by Jamie Harrison, with movement direction by Steven Hoggett and musical direction by Tom Brady.

    Playing at the National’s Lyttelton Theatre for a strictly limited season, the glorious adaptation of Pinocchio plays from 1 December 2017 to 10 April 2018, with a press night on 13 December 2017.

    Performance dates: 01 Dec 2017 - 10 Apr 2018

    Running time: 2 hours 35 minutes (including an interval)

    Wow what an incredible show Pinocchio is. I continue to be in awe of the shows that the National put on and this was no exception. Pinocchio is so clever and imaginative. I loved the combination of puppetry and human interaction. I thought the lighting and special effects were outstanding and enhanced the viewing experience. I especially liked the whale scene which was cleverly performed. My only criticism of Pinocchio would be the shortness of the show at an hour for first act and just over an hour for act two. Also I couldn’t say if this was a musical or not as even though songs were sung they were short and brief. Overall the cast and crew did an incredible job of putting on this classic Disney film. They covered all aspects of the story from Stromboli travelling theatre (loved the marionette dance) to Pleasure island (loving the donkey’s) to being deep inside the belly of Monstro and were very true to the film. Definitely worth catching.

    I went specifically to see Joe Idris Roberts, who plays Pinocchio, because he's going to be the new Albus in HP and the Cursed Child. I hadn't expected to enjoy a show for children so much. It's vivid and fun. The sets and costumes are colourful and beautiful. The classic story was handled with creativity. The performances were strong (especially Joe IR). I think there were aspects that would have given me nightmares as a child, but as a grown up I enjoyed the darkness. Well worth seeing as a piece of musical theatre.
