REVIEW: Pinocchio - A Festive Production at Gloucester Guildhall


It’s the festive Christmas season and mostly everyone is on the lookout for activities to do with those they love. Luckily, for those in Gloucester, a magical adaptation of Pinocchio comes alive at Gloucester Guildhall until the 4th January.

Presented by Strike A Light and Gloucester Guildhall, this spin on the classic fairy tale Pinocchio follows the efforts of a band called “Puppets with a soul” who turn from performing gigs to putting on a play all for the audience’s entertainment.  What ensues is a humorous little romp following the trials and tribulations of our hero Pinocchio, a wooden puppet, and his quest to be a real boy.

This pantomime production delighted the audience in its good natured storyline with its five energetic cast members, variety of props, and stage techniques to bring audience closer to the action. Expect plenty of music, comedy, and fun for children of all ages and even the young at heart. Take it from us, two adults: husband and wife, who enjoyed the show.   You will indeed be expected to contribute to pantomime phrases delivered at the top of your voices to be heard above all the other children. It had children bouncing on their seats with joy on the different parts. Fans of entertaining local productions won’t want to miss this fun show for all ages. Pinocchio is sure to be a welcome addition to the festive period.

"Pinocchio is for the whole family. You can bring your babies, your children, your grandma. It’s packed full of fun, dancing, singing a bit of acting. It really is for everyone.” Emma Jane, Co-artistic director of Strike a light, said.
