Here’s a first look at rehearsals for Pinocchio at Greenwich Theatre’s upcoming summer rep season.
As previously announced, the London venue will be running a summer season between 5 August and 5 September.
A brand-new retelling of family-favourite Pinocchio will run alongside the rescheduled adaptation of Joan Aiken’s acclaimed novel The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.
Both directed by Greenwich Theatre’s Artistic Director James Haddrell, the productions will combine captivating music and magical storytelling for some much-needed escapism.
Greenwich Theatre’s favourite pantomime villain Anthony Spargo will join a fantastic ensemble cast, taking on numerous roles across both productions.
Further casting includes Alice DeWarrenne, David Haller, Cassandra Hercules, Serin Ibrahim, Adam Karim and Reice Weathers.
Carlo Collodi’s iconic tale of a talking puppet, Pinocchio, has been adapted specifically for Greenwich Theatre by Anthony Clark. Packed with puppetry, a wood-influenced score, and a sense of adventure, the production is a beautiful reimagining of the original material.
Join Pinocchio, a talking cricket and a whole host of characters, as they discover the impact of their actions and lies.
Tickets are available from £21 on www.greenwichtheatre.org.uk
The venue will continue to adhere to the ongoing government guidance, with social distancing potentially in place for indoor performances.
