Kudos to director Dale Wayne Williams for managing this large cast of 24 and the challenging script with its multiple scenes. John Baldwin’s adaptation of this story is a little preachy, and Fiona Breen as Glissandra the Blue Fairy did an earnest job of warning the prone-to-lying-and-selfishness Pinocchio (Avery Kirchensteiner) to be a good boy, in order to become a “real boy.” Rowan Blessing played the kindly Gepetto. Blake Weil brought some villainous energy to Mastroni, the evil puppet master. Mia Colony and Lucas Richey-Cook brought a little con-man attitude to the sketchy Fox and Cat.
