Family friendly show at Theatre by the Lake

Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company bring their brand new family-friendly show, Pinocchio, to Theatre by the Lake for February half term. Following sell-out shows of The Gingerbread Man and The Elves and the Shoemaker, this unswervingly energetic and humorous company returns with their latest production.
 Using the classic elements of this tale – a poor woodcarver, the tell-tale growing nose, the dream of becoming a real boy – S&N add their hallmark hilarity, cleverness, puppetry, music, fantastic staging, outstanding performers and extraordinary physical tricks, in their most ambitious production to date.  Three very funny men seek refuge in a grand but abandoned old house, where they gather around an extraordinary dining table that becomes their playground. Grandfather, Father and Son tell tales of growing up; one of them used to be Pinocchio and it turns out he’s had quite a life!…
“Take a child (by which I mean, anyone from 3 to 103) to a show by Stuff and Nonsense; watch how, within a minute or two their smile begins to widen, their mind starts to expand – then notice their expressions of delight and wonder…Stuff and Nonsense make the world a better place.”Chris Chibnall, Executive Producer, Doctor Who and TV Writer (Broadchurch, Doctor Who, Torchwood)
