Len Piper's Pinocchio


A life-size marionette version of Carlo Collodi’s classic children’s tale, created in the 1960s by the father of the Puppet Co.’s co-founder, Christopher Piper.  This production has been completely refurbished and adapted for the Puppet Co. stage.  Performed in Hollywood and Hawaii, critics hailed the production as “A Masterpiece!” and raved, “The underwater ballet alone is worth the price of admission!”

Presented by the Puppet Co.
