Join Pinocchio, Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of lovable characters as the classic tale of an aging toymaker and his beloved wooden puppet is given new life. Disney’s My Son Pinocchio Jr. is a fresh musical that retells this treasured gem from Geppetto’s perspective as he journeys beyond the toyshop to discover the true meaning of family.

When Blue Fairy grants Geppetto’s wish to bring his beloved puppet to life, the new father quickly learns that being a parent is full of challenges. As he struggles to make his son “the perfect boy”, he loses him to a gang of Roustabouts. However, only when faced with the thought of never seeing Pinocchio again, does Geppetto learn to love unconditionally and appreciate the joys of fatherhood.

Along with familiar favourites When You Wish Upon A Star and I’ve Got No Strings, audiences will fall in love with a host of new songs by Oscar Award and Grammy Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz.
