PinocchioPinocchio: The Unbelievable but True Tale
A Rhode Island Youth Theatre Musical Adaptation

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.
RYT submitted a professional DVD to PBS for broadcast, and to professional licensing organizations for consideration for their young performers’ catalogs.
Pinocchio: The Unbelievable but True Tale features 11 new songs such as Unbelievable but True, Stepping Out, Trickery and Lies, and the Legendary Land of La. The story is told by a troupe of storytellers, which is on stage for the whole show.
The cast size can range from 12 to 60. It was written with elementary school students in mind, but older students or adults can also perform the show for children. The package includes the script, a production CD, the musical score, a production book with suggestions for staging, and a set of activities keyed to the National Education Standards. Show runs 1 hour. Permission to videotape performances is granted provided the tapes are not sold or broadcast. Email or call 401-447-0458 for more information.
