Adapted by Tracy Vonder Haar and Logan Hutt, this ballet tells the tale of Pinocchio’s transformation from wooden puppet to real live boy. Despite guidance from the beautiful Blue Fairy, prodding by his Cricket guardian, and the love of his father, Geppetto, Pinocchio’s curious spirit leads him into one adventure after another.
This two-act original ballet is performed by students from the Pre-Professional Training Division at Vonder Haar Center for the Performing Arts. The cast includes Bianca Bulgarelli as Pinocchio, Alexandra Wilson as the Blue Fairy, Madeleine Franck as the Cricket, and Cami Del Guercio as the Fox. Company members fill in the other leading roles with ensemble support from students at the Center. The production is under the direction of Tracy Vonder Haar, with choreography by Logan Hutt, who also plays Gepetto.
Tickets range from $26 to $40, and may be purchased by calling Vonder Haar Center for the Performing Arts at (818) 790-5775.
