PINOCCHIO — A FAMILY MUSICAL

A Family Musical

Book and Lyrics by Max C. Golightly

Music by Neil K. Newell

 (Suitable for performance by large cast Community, University/College, High School and Youth Theatre)

Inside each of us is a child–a little frightened, a bit unsure, wanting very much to find somewhere, someone to love. This is the story of a bond between a lonely woodcarver and a little wooden marionette who wanted so much to be a real boy. Through this story we learn that dreams are necessary–that love and belief are keys that open the doors to happiness. A new and delightful adaptation of Collodi’s classic. “A Broadway Quality Musical!”

 

A wonderful feature of this script is that it has two endings for TWO different times of the year. There is a Christmas Ending (the original ending), but there is also an ending for Valentines Day. We are confidant that other endings for other holidays could also be accomplished. The music cues are the same, but the lyrics, and sometimes the dialog, changes.
