Tickets now available for My Son Pinocchio Jr.

Performances April 10-12

Theatre Company's spring musical production

This month, the Theatre Company will perform Disney's My Son Pinocchio Jr., complete with a cast of 100 Tulare County students. The program will offer three 7:00 p.m. evening shows April 10-12. A 2:00 p.m. matinee will also be offered Saturday, April 12.

My Son Pinocchio Jr. is the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto and his little wooden puppet, Pinocchio. In this musical, the story is given new life and is told from Geppetto's perspective. The production features the beloved classic songs When You Wish Upon a Star and I've Got No Strings, plus a host of new songs by Oscar- and Grammy Award-winner and master melodist Stephen Schwartz.

Show director Nicole Zweifel invites the public to join Geppetto as he travels beyond the toy shop to discover the meaning of family. "My Son Pinocchio Jr. has a dynamic cast of middle school performers and is a magical mix of heartwarming fairy tale and action-packed adventure. Audiences will love following Pinocchio's journey from an awkward wooden puppet to a real live boy and will be charmed by Geppetto's transformation from demanding creator to real live father," she says.

General admission tickets are $10 per person and are available during normal business hours at two TCOE Visalia locations: 2637 West Burrel Avenue and 7000 Doe Avenue, Suite A. All performances will be held at the El Diamante High School Theater located at 5100 West Whitendale Avenue in Visalia.
