This December Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Halifax will be filled with songs and merriment as Pinocchio by Proper Job Theatre Company comes to our beautiful 18th Century theatre.
We thought your group may be interested to know that on Monday 12 December at 1.30pm we have a special Senior Citizens Matinee performance with half price tickets of just £5.
The production has a cast of children from across Calderdale acting alongside professional adult actors with puppetry, singing, live music and an awe-inspiring set making this an entertaining show for the festive period. It offers the perfect way for your retired members to enjoy a truly memorable experience together.
Based on Carlo Collodi’s darkly humorous book, Pinocchio is merely a wooden puppet created by a carpenter but he desperately longs to be so much more than just a puppet. He wants to be a ‘real’ boy just like the other boys in school… but can this implausible dream ever come true?
Join us on a journey of adventures, mischief, tears and laughter brought to life on stage with a bag full of theatrical tricks. Evoking the Italian style of commedia dell’arte and truer to the original book than the Disney film, Proper Job strives to bring you an experience filled with comedy and drama aimed to keep you on the edge of your seats.
Last year we did the same offer for Scrooge – A Christmas Carol, and we received such good feedback that we have decided to do it again. This time we will throw in a cup of free mulled wine, or tea or coffee, and a mince pie in the offer.
The show is 2 hours including an interval. This special Senior Citizens Matinee performance is Monday 12 December at 1.30pm. Tickets are £5 for all retired people.
