About the play and the production:  Originally commissioned in 2012 by the Children’s Theatre Company of Minneapolis and the Seattle Children’s Theatre, this novel production with music uses the audience’s imagination to bring this inventive and clever piece of theatre to life. It is definitely not the Disney version, and harkens back more to the original Italian story and the adventures and many characters that shape Pinocchio into “a real boy.”

The FSCJ DramaWorks production of “Pinocchio” features 14 student actors and eight student crew members from all areas of the First Coast and directed by Professor of Theatre Ken McCulough
