Written and directed by
Hugo Bélanger

Based on Carlo Collodi's classic

Once upon a time there was a small piece of wood…

Following the internationally acclaimed Alice in Wonderland, Tout à Trac now revisits Collodi’s tale about the world’s most famous puppet: Pinocchio.

Born from a talking piece of wood carved by the old Geppetto, the rebellious, cheeky and careless Pinocchio discovers the meaning of growing up through a thousand trials. To become a real boy, he will have to face Mangiafuoco, the terrible Puppet Master, suffer the malice of the Fox and his sidekick, the Cat, escape from Toyland and save his father from the belly of the giant fish!

Pinocchio from Tout à Trac is another amazing journey into the heart of childhood and imagination…

Pinocchio is a production of Tout à Trac, in coproduction with Place des Arts and the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.
