Chicago Puppet Fest, Istituto Italiano di Cultura Chicago, and Beverly Arts Center Present Pinocchio. A musical fantasy for puppets and actors

Running Time: 60 minutes

Ages: Recommended for ages 5 and up

In a unique take on the time-honored Italian children’s story, Teatro del Drago brings the original Pinocchio to life in a playful, physical style. When Geppetto creates a fine wooden marionette, he makes a wish that it be a living child. A fairy makes his dream a reality-with complications, of course. Teatro del Drago manipulates colorful wearable figures to realize this collage of scenes and characters.

Price: $20; $15 students/Istituto members
