Life's Lessons Abound in "Pinocchio"
At MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Feb. 4-6

1/12/11


West Windsor, N.J. -- Follow the adventures of "Pinocchio," a puppet on a mission to be a real boy. The Yardley Players presents this heart-warming fairytale classic at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre on Friday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 5 and 6 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is conveniently located on the college's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening performance on Feb. 4.

Lonely old Geppetto carves himself a son out of wood. No sooner does he complete the job than the puppet springs to life. But Pinocchio is not yet a real boy. First he must prove himself worthy. After many missteps - and a nose that grows longer with each one - Pinocchio finally learns the important lessons of honesty, bravery and loyalty that ensure his entry into the human world.

Featured in "Pinocchio" are Stephen Szemis of West Windsor as Pinocchio; Michael McCollum of Feasterville, Pa., as Geppetto; Jeffrey Milstein of East Windsor as Master Cherry; Laura Murey of Hamilton as Blue Fairy; Kyle Ossowski of Lawrenceville as Harlequin; Emma Rulli of Burlington as Columbine; Marina Vrahnos of Plainsboro as Fire Eater; Caroline Scott of Skillman as The Fox; Simon Hamilton of Princeton as The Cat; Claire Norden of Newtown, Pa., as Candlewick; Douglas Eberhart of Yardley, Pa., as Barker; Jim Guenther of Lawrenceville as Coachman; and Walter Smyth of Trevose, Pa., as The Voice of the Cricket.
