Without Strings

By Patrick Rainville Dorn

Directed by Kayla Jukich & Michael Treder

Your favorite puppet story gets a modern renovation, updated with lots of slapstick humor and clever wordplay to appeal especially to teens. Carl, an angry and lonely teenager, has left home and seeks out work with the enigmatic Professor Pinecone and his marionette troupe. Carl becomes Pinocchio in this play-within-a-play and encounters our familiar cast of characters along his travels. The Blue Fairy, an underhanded fox and cat and a vivacious cricket help him navigate his way through life’s grand decisions. Struggling along the way, he ultimately makes good by saving Geppetto from impending doom. Audiences of all ages will enjoy the smart dialogue and surprise ending to this hip and hilarious version of the traditional tale.
