PINOCCHIO – Schools

Theatre |
18th December 2012

Award-winning Strangeface bring an extraordinary mix of masks, puppets live music and song to this tale of wild mischief and temptation. In a style closer to Roald Dahl than Disney, The Amazing Adventures of Pinocchio takes us on a fantastical journey from his first moments as a talking log through a madcap series of scrapes and escapades with the scheming rascals Fox and Cat, magical fairies and a host of other mysterious characters on a voyage through strange faraway places.

In turns thrilling and heart-warming, moving and comical, Strangeface brings an inimitable magic to a masterpiece of surreal fantasy. Set in 1930s Sicily, this highly original production also includes Strangeface's ever popular back stage tour where the audience get a chance to try on a mask, play with a puppet or take a closer look at the company's renowned 'trailing edge' technology.

Strangeface have been touring nationally since 2001 and are equally at home in grand old theatres as rural halls. Their distinctive style blends quick changes, mask and puppet play with original live music and soundscapes. The mastery of character creation Strangeface employ appeals to both children and adults and is what now makes them a leading mask theatre company in the UK.
