PINOCCHIO: The Unbelievable but True Tale
A Rhode Island Youth Theatre Musical Adaptation
A troupe of storytellers arrives in town with the promise of telling the Unbelievable but True Tale of Pinocchio. Based on the English translation of Carlo Collodi’s timeless tale about a puppet that becomes a real boy, this Rhode Island Youth Theatre original musical adaptation has been licensed and performed by many school and youth groups over the past 14 years. And now, RIYT is creating a stunning production and a professional DVD to submit to PBS for broadcast, and to professional licensing organizations for consideration for their young performers’ catalogs.
The live performance of this show will be professionally judged by the New England Theatre Conference as an applicant for the Moss Hart Memorial Award. We are proud to enter a student-directed show in this category.
