Pinocchio's Marionette Theater began as touring marionette company named Puppet Celebration, Inc. in May of 1999. As a touring company Puppet Celebration, Inc. performed marionette shows in elementary schools, civic auditoriums, libraries, the Mennello Museum of American Folk Art and as Guest Artists at the National Puppeteers of America Festival in 2002. The multiple goals of Pinocchio’s Marionette Theater are to help preserve the art and craft of marionette puppetry, to introduce children to the theater, and to teach theater etiquette. As Pinocchio's consistently pursues its goals, it combines high performance standards with uplifting cultural values for family audiences.

Pinocchio's popularity has been heartwarming to the small paid staff, volunteers, and independent contractors who make its existence possible. What started with a modest three performances per week has grown to as many as twenty each week during peak seasons. Pinocchio's is a full-time marionette theater company and currently has nine titles in its ever-expanding repertory of shows. In the order they were written by Pinocchio's Founder and Artistic Director, David Eaton, the titles are:

Pinocchio!
Hansel and Gretel
Aladdin and The Wonderful Lamp
The Little Drummer Boy
The Wizard of OZ
Cinderella
Peter Pan And Wendy
Jack And The Beanstalk
Rumpelstiltskin

The positive impact Pinocchio's has made in the lives of young children has been both real and rewarding. Before Pinocchio's, most of Central Florida's children had ever seen a marionette performance. When they visit with us after the show, their expressions and comments let us know they are enthralled by what we are able to create in our "candy box" theater. For many children, a Pinocchio's performance is their first encounter with the lively arts. It is more than gratifying that these same children and their parents return to experience marionette magic time and time again.

Pinocchio's colorful birthday party rooms make every celebration a very Special Occasion. With a capacity of 75 to 100, depending on the audience mix, Pinocchio's can provide special performances for groups large and small. Call today to plan your event!
