Chichester Festival Youth Theatre's colourful and magical version of this classic tale about the wooden boy whose nose gets longer with every lie he tells returns for Christmas 2021. For ages 7+.

Geppetto the boatmaker tosses aside a piece of wood; it’s only good for the fire. To his amazement, a voice answers him back. Geppetto picks up the wood and begins to carve – and a small wooden boy is revealed. A puppet, which he names Pinocchio.

And that’s when the mayhem begins. Pinocchio can’t stop getting into trouble, despite the best efforts of the Fairy and the Cricket to keep him on track.

Pinocchio encounters a host of fascinating characters, from Punch and Judy to the wily Fox and Cat and the strange Sea Monster, as he journeys to Wonderland and the world beneath the sea. But he discovers that it isn’t easy hiding the truth – especially when your nose gets longer with every lie you tell…

We are delighted to be able to simultaneously live stream this new adaptation of Pinocchio from the Festival Theatre stage to global digital audiences at home on 22 December at 7pm and 23 December at 2pm. Live stream tickets are available to purchase up to 2 hours before the start time.
