This heart warming show tells the classic tale of a puppet-turned-real-boy, but from the perspective of his toymaker father. With beloved songs from the original animated film such as "I’ve  Got No Strings" and "When You Wish Upon a Star," this tale of the parent-child relationship will be enjoyed by adults and youngsters alike. A cast of 40 will present the show.


       The director, Mitchell Prudhomme, said of the show, "This musical speaks strongly to me as a parent with its themes of family and forgiveness. I truly hope that it will do the same for the public, both young and old alike. While audiences will initially be captivated by the catchy music, they will return home, hopefully, with a smile on their face and a lesson learned."
