Press: Pinocchio, back by popular demand at the Baxter Theatre

After a completely sold out run at the Baxter Theatre and the Nassau Theatre in 2015, The Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company will be performing one of their most successful shows, PINOCCHIO for the school holidays. PINOCCHIO is back by popular demand and will run from Monday 3rd July until Saturday 8th July at 10:30am at the Baxter Theatre.


PINOCCHIO  is based on the original Carlo Collodi classic of the little wooden puppet who has to prove himself to be honest, trustworthy before he can become a real live boy, with help and guidance from Jiminy Cricket and the Blue Fairy. Follow Pinocchio and Gepetto on their adventures to Stromboli’s Puppet Theatre and inside a whale.  Watch Pinocchio’s nose grow as he lies to Gepetto and see Jiminy Cricket magically turn into a life-size cricket. A fairytale classic for the whole family over the festive season.

Pinocchio is one of the world`s best loved fairytales and is adapted and directed by Elton John Duffy, who has been producing Children`s Theatre and delighting audiences for the past 24 years. This is a true traditional fairytale with a modern twist. This production stars Desle McConney (Athlone), Dean Van Der Ventel (Goodwood),  Kirsten Murphy Rossiter (Oranjezicht), Elton John Duffy (Edgemead)  and Ameera Juta (Pinlands)  as Pinocchio.
