Pinocchio - A Charming Theatrical Performance for Ages 4 & up PDF Print E-mail
Save the Date   Traveling Lantern

On Saturday, April 28 from 2:00 - 2:45 pm at the Headquarters Library in Manalapan, join us as the adventures of life teach a puppet about honesty and humanity.

A little wooden marionette is lovingly created by a master craftsman, but what a selfish and greedy little puppet he turns out to be! He doesn't listen to the good counsel of anyone, including his father Gepetto, a philosopher Cricket, or a Blue Fairy. After many hair raising adventures, Pinocchio finally learns what it takes to become human, including kindness, compassion, loyalty, hard work and selflessness.

Traveling Lantern has been educating and entertaining children all over the country since 1985. Interactive stories provide active theater experience, and tickle imaginations. Programs are targeted to present important ethical ideas on a level children can absorb, relate to and consider.

No tickets or registration required! Suited for Ages 4 and up, and their families.
