I saw the show last Saturday night and thought it was fabulous. Loved the fairy in training with the cymbals. Also cried like a baby at Getpetto's song - "don't take my son from me" BEAUTIFUL!!

Saw the Saturday evening show with 2 other families. Everyone loved it. Heard comments like "this is way better than the Marriott Lincolnshire", after driving 90 minutes from Illinois to see the show!! Well done on the costumes. Loved the comedic touch. And Pinocchio was pretty darn good too!

We saw the opening show on Friday night and we loved it! The music is so memorable - our 4 year old is still singing the songs! The costumes and set were fabulous and of course, the actors were all wonderful! Loved the Family Theme too. Great holiday show!

My mom took my sister and I to My Son Pinocchio on Sunday. We were in the very front row and it was amazing! It was full of heart-warming scenes with a touch of humor. I loved how Pinocchio's nose grew by clicking on magnetic pieces! That was really creative, and so were the lighting effects that simulated Gepetto and Pinocchio being sneezed out of the whale. Every second of the play was magical, and seeing it got me extremely excited to be in the next play, the Magic Bicycle! Great job to everyone in the cast and crew! :)

We haven't seen the show yet, but we definitely want to! My son can't decide which cast to see, so we may just have to come and see it twice!

The message is timeless & the music contagious! Jeff Frank & Jeff Schaetzke should be immensely proud of the masterpiece they've created! The entire crew and casts have made this show a difficult one to top! Great job!
(I believe the posted picture might be the Donkey cast though.)

We saw the show on opening night and thought it was wonderful. My five year old son sat wide-eyed, loving every minute. What a wonderful story for the holidays or any time of year! Costumes, set and of course "the nose" were all amazing. A great production-a must see!

Supurb, what a wonderful show. Saw the show 12/19/10. The large ensamble cast was great and filled the stage with life and the main actors were right on target. The singing and acting just drew you in, as well as the underlying theme. I can't say enough, a fantastic Christmas show, wish all the shows were this good.
