Pinocchio,” is a familiar story. An animated puppet endures several trials to become a real boy. Missoula Children’s Theater, however, inserted an educational twist to this classic tale. In order to become a real boy, Pinocchio needs to learn how to behave.
The fictional character isn’t the only one learning a thing or two during the course of the play. The real-life actors are also gaining some knowledge by participating in this production.
“We like to bring the spirit of teamwork … organize and plan everything out,” Joe Godburn, who is directing the show along with Steven Thomas, said. “It’s all about building that teamwork and putting something together as a group.”
It is a lesson the students are excelling at. “They’re great,” Godburn said. “They learn really quick.”
Wesley Cornwell, who plays Pinocchio, said, “It’s really fun. They’re a great group to work with.”
Although this is Cornwell’s first time in a lead role, he has performed in Missoula productions for six years.
“It always teaches you how to act,” he said. “(And) you always get to sing.”
