See 'My Son Pinocchio' this weekend at the Stadium

WOONSOCKET - The classic tale of an aging toymaker and his puppet, Pinocchio, takes on timely issues in Disney's "My Son Pinocchio" at the Stadium Theatre this weekend, Nov. 15-17. Show time is 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Come with a new, unwrapped toy to donate to Toys For Tots and Gepetto and Pinocchio will greet you in front of the theater to take your donations.

Grammy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz adds a score of original songs to the classics "When You Wish Upon a Star" and "I've Got No Strings."

Join the Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of characters as Geppetto journeys beyond the toy shop to discover what makes the "perfect child." Follow Pinocchio's journey from an awkward wooden puppet to a real, live boy and be charmed by Geppetto's transformation from demanding creator to a real, live father.

Tickets are $16, available at the box office, 401-762-4545 or online at www.stadiumtheatre.com. The musical play is presented by Encore Kids.
