Revisit a Classic Fairy Tale When The House Theatre of Chicago Presents Pinocchio

The House Theatre of Chicago continues their 2019 season with the beloved tale of Pinocchio at The Chopin Theatre on Saturday, March 30th! This world premiere of the classic story inspired by the works of Carlo Collodi has been adapted for the stage by Company Members Joseph Steakley and Ben Lobpries.

This Saturday, The House brings Pinocchio to life, a tall tale about telling the truth. Carved from an enchanted stump in a charred forest, toyshop owner Geppeto's small puppet child flourishes. The growing Pinocchio devours books and the complex worlds they reveal. He relishes musicals and the emotional ride they offer. And he longs to sink his adolescent teeth into real relationships and conversations beyond the walls of his storefront home.

But his protective father keeps Pinocchio's wild branches trimmed back and forbids him from venturing out – a method sure to inspire rebellion in this precocious, curious, not-quite-real young man. Funny, imaginative, and moving, Pinocchio explores how the lies we tell ourselves hurt those we love.

Relive a beloved fairytale with Pinocchio, presented by The House Theatre of Chicago. Pinocchio will be portrayed by a stunning, life-size Bunraku-inspired puppet, created and crafted by Chicago Puppet Studios. Tickets to the show are $20 and may be purchased by calling (773) 769-3832 or by visiting www.thehousetheatre.com.
