This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto's perspective, features the beloved classic songs, "When You Wish upon a Star" and "I've Got No Strings," alongside a host of new songs by Oscar- and Grammy Award winner and master melodist, Stephen Schwartz who also composed the musical “Wicked”.
“This show has a very strong cast,” said Misty Beck, director. “We have more than 60 cast members ranging from 4-years-old and up.”
In the lead, the role of Gephetto, will be played by PCC Sophomore Zach Stone. Pinocchio will be played by the young Thatcher Jacobs. PCC Sophomore Arica Alexander will play the role of the Blue Fairy.
