CCT's first production of the year

Columbus Children's Theatre debuts Pinocchio this Thursday, its first production of 2015. The show, which is recommended for ages 3 and older, runs through Jan. 25 at Columbus Children's Theatre's Park Street Theatre, which is located at 512 Park St., just north of North Market and Nationwide Arena.

Based on the book by Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio is an adventurous fairytale about a talking wooden puppet who magically becomes a real live boy. Like any real boy, Pinocchio has lessons to learn in life. Pinocchio doesn't want to admit when he's wrong, but when he lies his nose grows. After several adventures, all ends happily in this heartwarming story. Performed by the Columbus Children's Theatre Professional Touring Company, this production features audience participation.
