It was one of our regular patrons who first put the idea of ‘Pinocchio’ into my head. I had read the story as a child and, although a lover of Walt Disney’s cartoon, knew that he had extensively altered Carlo Collodi’s story.
But I was disappointed in the scripts I read. Their modifications were sometimes more extreme than Disney’s and I had almost given up the idea when my husband suggested going back to Collodi’s original story, which he would adapt for the Plowright stage. Other Members came to early readings of the script and George used their input to make it what you will see tonight.
This production is our first since 1991, other than pantomime, specifically for children. I am particularly glad to have been able to include several juveniles and to welcome a few returning or new guests.
I close by expressing my profound gratitude to the many fellow Club members who have supported this production and hope that you will enjoy joining Pinocchio on his adventures tonight.
