Very disappointed with this years show. It really needed some adults. In past shows the adults have provided much "comic
relief" with goofy dancing or other funny antics. Don't think the "children only" cast was able of providing any of that.
Some of the children in the audience were probably too young to really understand the story and certainly not the moral. But with some amusing scenes & a better narrator the show would have been funny if not totally understandable
Bright and Entertaining
Pinocchio was one of the most entertaining children's ballet that I have seen. The costumes were colorful and eye-catching, and the performers drew us into Pinocchio's world with their expressive dancing. Thank you for providing us with a wonderful performance for children of all ages!
Great show for all kids
My son and daughter really enjoyed this ballet. It was funny and colorful and kept their attention for the duration.
With the recommended ages 12 and under I feel the Underwater scene was too long of a "mature" ballet for those ages. When I was in the audience many young children were fidgeting, restless, and whining to parents during that scene. Children need more acting, amusing scenes so they can laugh and be engaged. The narrator "story teller" was not recognized by the children as maybe expected.
My suggestion is: shortening lengthy scenes, more fun physical ballet to WOW the children with plenty of amusing acting.
This performance was beautifully done and so appropriate for children. My (very wiggly) 8 year old son was engaged the whole performance, but it's not just for the younger set. Our family including his grandparents enjoyed the whole experience. We will definitely seek out other children's performances!
