Pinocchio comes to Heanor church

A production of Pinocchio for children aged five and over comes to Heanor Baptist Church on Wednesday February 27.

Strangeface Theatre Company’s production of the classic tale uses a mix of masks, puppets and original live music in a style closer to Roald Dahl than Disney.

Organisers said: “Pinocchio takes us on a fantastical journey from his first moments as a talking log, through a madcap series of scrapes and escapades with rascals, Fox and Cat, fairies, a terrible dogfish and a voyage to the land of Cockayne. Strangeface are a really friendly bunch and for the curious amongst you, you can go and have a wander round the set and look at the masks after the show.”

The 90 minute show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 (full price) £6 (OAPs and students) from David Howe on 01773 718676.
