A rollicking, hip revision of the classic tale of a wooden boy with a nose for trouble.
Once there was a lonely man with lots of love to give. He wanted a child so much that he carved himself a beautiful little boy. But the boy wanted the world - adventure, fame and the latest designer sneakers. He wanted more than his father could possibly give, and so he ran away to get it. This is his story.
The classic tale by Carlo Collodi is given a 21st Century spin and retold as a witty, rocking, music theatre spectacular; a mix of old time theatre fun and a celebration of the 'whatever' generation. For kids brought up on Australian Idol, this fable of conscience and belonging is given a new dimension by the talented Windmill Theatre team that created the multi-Helpmann Award-nominated
