Well, it’s ‘that’ time of year again! We know you’ll all be busy being jolly so there’s only one event this month and we’ve been pretty selective about it whilst trying to keep in the seasonal swing of things…. and no, it’s not panto!!
We’ve chosen one of our favourite theatre venues in the city and advise you to book asap as tickets for the show are selling out fast….
The Adventures of Pinocchio takes unity’s passion for traditional stories told in an untraditional way into it’s 17th year – a magical and musical Christmas treat which incorporates puppetry into the production.
Hot on the success of In Search Of Fabulous Beasts and The Tinder Box, unity continues its collaboration with Hope Street and Zho Theatre Co to bring you a unique retelling of Carlo Collodi’s The Adventures of Pinocchio.
Follow Pinocchio’s adventures as he runs away from his father and encounters a talking cricket, a tricky fox, boys who turn into mules, a Fairy and a whale!
The story of Pinocchio will be brought to you by local writer Esther Wilson, whose many credits include Unprotected (with Radio 4 and the Everyman), and director Paula Simms who has directed many successful shows including last years sellout Christmas show The Tinder Box. Paula also directed the Lantern Parade in Sefton Park in 2005/06 (& Corrie fans will recognise her as Candice’s mum).
Come along, be merry and get the chance to meet Esther, Paula and the rest of the cast in the bar after the show.
The production is suitable for children from 4 years, however, all children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Note – there is no numbered seat allocation at Unity, please turn up early if you want to sit with friends!
