Geppetto: Bank Holiday family entertainment tells story before Pinocchio

Come and join the team at The Market Place Theatre on Saturday March 16, for a light hearted, whimsical adventure into the story before ‘Pinocchio’.

Geppetto is lonely and grieving the loss of his wife; he spends his days pottering in his repair shop, half heartedly fixing broken things. One day, his quiet and solitary life is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of a mysterious visitor that brings his broken things to life! A lamp causes havoc, a radio bursts into song, and a Hoover is determined to cause trouble.

Geppetto is slowly pulled out of his lonely existence into a world full of hope and opportunity. He is finally able to move through life no longer weighed down by loss. As we leave him, the mysterious visitor has one last gift to bestow… as one story ends another story is just beginning…

‘Geppetto’ is a non-verbal production featuring physical comedy, puppetry and music. This fun and hilarious new production is perfect for children aged 6yrs+ and audiences with diverse needs.

‘Geppetto’ will take place at The Market Place Theatre, Armagh on Saturday March 16, at 2pm. Tickets are £12 (adults), £10 (children), or £35 (family of 4)

Tickets for all shows can be booked online at or from the Box Office on 03300 561 025.
