Pinocchio

This magical production is one of a series of participation musicals created especially for primary level and designed to help and encourage children with their literacy.

The show needs the help of the whole audience and is preceded by a rehearsal workshop in which some children are chosen to take part alongside the professionals, while the remaining audience are rehearsed into the chorus songs.

“Bringing a story to life is the best way to encourage our children to read”.

When Geppetto carves Pinocchio something magical begins to happen. As the wooden boy takes shape he starts to come to life, learns to walk and talk and takes on all the qualities of a mischievous little boy. Pinocchio may be disobedient but he’s also inquisitive and brave and has the most amazing adventures. What Pinocchio desires the most though is to become a real living boy – but will he?

The show requires the help of everyone watching. During the preceding fun half hour rehearsal workshop some children are chosen and rehearsed into their parts while the rest of the audience are taught the chorus songs. After a short pause the actors and children are costumed and the show, lasting 1 hour, runs seamlessly with everyone taking part as rehearsed.

Rehearsal/Workshop: 30 mins. Short pause. Performance: 1 hour.

Image Musical Theatre: Participation Musicals for KS1 and KS2


This wonderful production is one of a series of participation musicals created by Image Musical Theatre for Key Stage 1 and 2. The show itself is preceded by a rehearsal workshop where some of the children are chosen to take part in the show while the remainder of the audience are rehearsed into four chorus songs. Image Musical Theatre has an excellent reputation for producing work that is stimulating and entertaining while maintaining very high production values.

Oscar Wilde’s short story ‘The Selfish Giant’ is a beautiful and moving tale. By sharing the experience of the giant’s selfishness, a moment of realisation and finally his redemption, children and adults alike are reminded of the value of generosity. The show includes the participation of a dozen children who play the villagers and the whole audience who take part as chorus singers. With beautiful period costumes, an ingenious set and wonderful music from Robert Hyman, this production will continue Image Musical Theatre’s tradition of providing the very best touring theatre.

The Selfish Giant is a literacy treat for the whole school to enjoy watching together in your school hall, with no fuss (no buses!), very professional and great value for money (£395+vat).

Rehearsal / Workshop 30 mins — Interval — Performance 1 hour.

Please call or email for further details/booking.
