New panto dame shines in Pinocchio – a classic fairytale with a contemporary twist – stuff.co.nz

“The new era of Circa pantomimes is upon us, featuring a sublime blend of what we all love with refreshing elements” – Theatreview

‘It’s such a fun night out – and I can’t stop thinking about it’ – off the tracks

Summer fun continues with a reprise season of Pinocchio: The Pantomime! There’s toys and treats for the whole whānau in Wellywoodington with puppets, a whale, and a topsy turvy parliamentary circus.

Jump inside a fantastical storybook adventure with Pinocchio and pals as they make their way through a web of lies and porky pies to discover what it means to be a real person.

A refreshing original pantomime featuring Pinocchio’s friends and foes with contemporary songs, high energy dance, and dynamic set design.

Starring Nī Dekkers-Reihana, Jthan Morgan, Natasha McAllister, Sepelini Mua’au, Emma Katene, Finley Hughes, and Tabatha Killick.
