Don’t miss the Summer Arts Camp broadway production of Disney’s My Son Pinocchio JR. at the 500-seat Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center on Friday, August 11th at 5:30 pm.

In Disney’s My Son Pinocchio JR., the classic tale of toymaker, Geppetto’s, little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs, “When You Wish upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by Oscar winner and Grammy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz.

Join the Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of characters as Geppetto journeys beyond the toyshop to discover the meaning of family. When the Blue Fairy grants Geppetto’s wish to bring his beloved puppet to life, the new father quickly learns that being a parent is full of challenges. He struggles to make his son “the perfect boy,” only to lose him to a gang of Roustabouts. It is only when faced with the thought of never seeing Pinocchio again that Geppetto truly learns the joys of being a father and loving his child unconditionally.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling 954-921-3274. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for children under 12.

Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center is located at 1770 Monroe St., Hollywood, FL 33020.
