Pinocchio dreams of being a real boy, but will the all-too-tempting delights of puppet shows and Playland be too much? When Geppetto is swallowed by a whale, it is up to this little wooden puppet to show his courage. The Green Bean’s spin on the classic tale of Pinocchio proves the right five actors, some special puppets, and your imagination is all that’s needed to bring this magical story to life!
