Turning Pointe Dance Company along with Wilmington Conservatory of Fine Arts are proud to present this year’s production of the childhood classic, Pinocchio!

When the toy puppet, Pinocchio, is brought to life by Turchina the Blue Fairy, his creator Geppetto could not be more enthralled! But the naive and trusting Pinocchio chooses to ignore his conscience, Jiminy Cricket, and falls into the clutches of the wicked Honest John and Gideon. After being sold to a horde of gypsies and even swallowed by a whale, his narrow escapes and adventures do not stop there.

Follow Geppetto through this exciting tale and witness how a father's faithful, unrelenting love will stop at nothing to protect this newfound relationship with his son. Turning Pointe Dance Company's desire is that this allegorical presentation of the parable of the Prodigal Son will bring a new understanding of how much each one of us is loved and cherished by our Creator - and the lengths to which He will go to demonstrate that love.

Honoring God through the arts in excellence.
