YFE Theatrical Productions' Community Theater Show!
A Story from Fairyland
YFE Theatrical Productions is pleased to announce auditions for its annual fairytale! This year, we will be producing, Pinocchio: A Story from Fairyland! The classic tale of Pinocchio about a puppet who wishes to be a real human is retold in this fairytale! The Red Fairy and Blue Fairy are charged by their mother, Queen Emerald, to help teach Pinocchio right from wrong. The Red Fairy is allowed to tempt Pinocchio, but she must not harm him nor anyone around him. The Blue Fairy must show Pinocchio the right path, and even gives the puppet a conscience; the cricket named Hector. A story of love, compassion, and the consequences of decisions. This play will delight children of all ages and has plenty of surprises for the audlts as well!
