  • Nearly There Yet in association with Proteus, the Albany and ARC Stockton present


    Jaw dropping circus, hilarious puppets, and a magical set and soundtrack combine in this new look at the well-known story.

    Join Geppetto and Pinocchio as they meet all manner of characters: a very shady fox and cat, a performing donkey, a terrible whale who swallows people whole, a talking cricket, and an anglerfish blues band.


    This Pinocchio is full of the type of fun, mischief and magic that normally only happens when grown-ups turn their backs for a second. An unmissable family show, from the producers of The Party has plenty to keep adults entertained and children engaged.


    Nearly There Yet tell stories and create performances using circus, dance and theatre.Visit their website for more information. 


    Proteus are an ad winning theatre company from Basingstoke who believe that the audience is as important as the artist. Visit their website for more information.


    Audiences said:


    ‘My children have been talking about the show all week. Absolutely brilliant.’


    ‘We loved it! My children thought the sea part and the gymnastics were amazing!’


    ‘The performance was amazing. You had a 3 year old, 4 year old and 34 year old spellbound from start to finish. The combination of acting, acrobatics, puppetry... the shadow puppets particularly appealed to my 4 year old and my 3 year old had to be carried out because he didn't want to leave. Just fantastic!’
