Panto Pinocchio

Book and Lyrics by Eric Coble

Music by Steven Jones

Directed by Monica Josette

Producers Steven and Cabrina Owsley

Upcoming December 6-January 5

Sterling Stage



Join Pinocchio, a sentient AI boy created by tech-savvy inventor Gill Bates, as he navigates a town obsessed with viral TikTok dances. When Pinocchio embarks on a quest to discover his true essence—with the help of everybody’s favorite faithful guide, Buttons—he encounters a world of digital mischief and adventure. Will he unlock the secrets to his identity? Or will the conniving villain Miss Treats disrupt the festivities and thwart Pinocchio’s journey?


A feast for the senses, this panto is packed with high-tech hijinks, side-splitting jokes, and enough singing and dancing to reboot even the most jaded of operating systems. This holiday season, bring the family and immerse yourselves in the electrifying spectacle of panto!
