SCRIPT:
Narrator: Once upon a time there was a kind carpenter named Geppetto.

Geppetto: I feel very lonely … I have nobody to talk to. I work all day making chairs and tables….. But now, I will do something different. Something I have never done.

Narrator: So he took a piece of pine wood and started making a puppet. He worked all day carefully carving each detail.

Geppetto: How beautiful it is! How I wish that he were a real boy. I have always wanted to have a son… your name will be Pinocchio.

Narrator: That night when Geppetto was sleeping, a Blue Fairy came to his house. He stared at the puppet and said.

Blue Fairy: Pinocchio, it is true, you are beautiful… and with my magic wand I will give you life.

Narrator: Then the puppet opened his eyes and started moving slowly. And the fairy added.

Blue Fairy: Pinocchio, I want you to be a brave, honest and generous boy… so every time you tell a lie, your nose and your ears will grow, and when you tell the truth, they will be normal again.

Narrator: Then the fairy disappeared. Next morning when Geppetto woke up he heard somebody calling him.

Pinocchio: Father… father

Geppetto: Who´s calling me?

Pinocchio: It’s me… Pinocchio. Don’t you recognize me?

Geppetto: It seems like I am dreaming… Finally I have a son!

Narrator: A few days later Geppetto started thinking about Pinocchio´s education.

Geppetto: Pinocchio, you need to go to school.

Pinocchio: But… father… I want to be with you always.

Geppetto: So do I, Pinocchio, but you have to learn. I want you to be an intelligent boy. I cannot teach you many things that you can only learn in school.

Pinocchio: Then, I will go to school! I will study hard so that I can have a good job and earn a lot of money.

Geppetto: We don’t need the money, Pinocchio. We are happy the way we live.

Pinocchio: I know father, but I want to buy you a coat.

Geppetto: Very well, but now, go to school, it’s getting late.

Pinocchio: Good-bye father!

Geppetto: Good-bye, Pinocchio!

Narrator: When Pinocchio was on his way to school he heard a man shouting.

Man: Come in! Ladies and Gentlemen! Come and see out puppet show!

Pinocchio: A puppet show? Wow… puppets like me… I have to go and see them.

Narrator: So Pinocchio instead of going to school, he went to see the puppet show.

Pinocchio: Oh, I am so happy that I want to dance with them.

Narrator: And he climbed onto the stage and started dancing. But soon he realized that they were not real puppets like him.

Pinnochio: I can dance and sing better than these puppets and I don’t need strings like they do.

Puppet Master: Get off my stage!

Narrator: Then when the audience saw that he didn’t have strings they started shouting.

Audience: Hooray! hooray!

Audience: That puppet looks like a boy! I like him!

Audience: He is moving by himself. He has not strings! Don´t go! Stay here!

Audience: Don´t go! I want to see him again!

Puppet Master: They liked him! … Boy, do you want to be in our show? You can earn a lot of money!

Pinocchio: No, because I have to go to school.

Puppet Master: Then take these coins. You danced very well.

Pinocchio: Thank you, sir.

Narrator: And Pinocchio left the theatre and started walking to school. Then he heard someone calling him.

Cat1: Well, well, well! … Are you in a hurry, little boy?

Pinocchio: Yes, I am going to buy a coat for my father.

Dog: Oh, come on… that’s not enough money to buy a coat. Wouldn’t you like to have more?

Pinocchio: Yes, but how?

Cat2: That’s easy. If you plant your coins in the Field of Miracles, a plant will grow and it will give you a lot of money.

Pinocchio: And where is that field?

Fox: We will take you there.

Narrator: So the cats, the dog and the fox, who in fact were four liars, took Pinocchio to a faraway place.
Pinocchio: Is this the place?
Dog and fox: Yes it is. This is the place where you will give us your money!
Pinocchio: But you said
Cat2: I know what I said!<
Fox: Didn´t they tell you not to trust strangers?
Narrator: Then they took Pinocchio’s money, tied him to a tree, and left him there all by himself.
Pinocchio: Help! Help! Somebody help me! Please!
Narrator: But nobody heard him. Then the Blue Fairy appeared but Pinochio could not tell her the truth.
Blue Fairy: And where did you loose the coins?
Pinocchio: When I was crossing the river.
Narrator: Then Pinocchio felt strange.
Pinocchio: What is happening to me? Why is my nose growing?
Narrator: And he started crying.
Blue Fairy: I once told you that every time you tell a lie, your nose will grow and when you tell the truth, it will shrink. Now, go straight home and don’t stop for any reason.
Pinocchio: Thank you good fairy, I will never lie again. You can be sure of that!
Blue Fairy: I hope so, Pinocchio.
Narrator: When Pinocchio was on his way home, he met fouir children that were laughing and playing.
Pinocchio: What is happening?
Boy 1: We are going to Fun Land.
Pinocchio: What kind of place is that? I never heard of that place?
Boy 2: It’s a place where there’s a party every day!
Boy 3: There are no schools and no teachers.
Boy 4: Do you want to come with us?
Narrator: Then the Blue fairy appeared.
Blue Fairy: Didn’t you promise you would go to school?
Pinocchio: Yes, I have been there.
Narrator: And then his nose started growing again. Now he had a very long nose.
Pinocchio: Uh, uh… I am sorry… I lied again.
Blue Fairy: Go home, Pinnochio!
Pinocchio: Yes, Blue Fairy.
Narrator: He went home, but Geppetto wasn´t there. Then he heard someone calling him.
Neighbour: Pinocchio! Pinocchio!
Pinocchio: What´s wrong?
Neighbour: Pinocchio, I was at the beach and I saw Geppetto going into the water, when suddenly a big whale swallowed him!
Pinocchio: Let’s go, I have to save him!
Narrator: Both went to the beach.
Narrator: When the whale appeared again, it swallowed him too. When he was inside the whale he saw Geppetto and both hugged.
Pinocchio: We have to get out of here. I have a plan to get out. I´m going to tickle his stomach.
Narrator: And they did. The whale gave a big sneeze and they were out of the whale’s mouth . Then the Blue Fairy appeared.
Blue Fairy: Geppetto, your dream will come true!
Narrator: And the Blue Fairy touched Pinocchio with her magic wand.
Pinocchio: Look at me father! I am a real boy!
The End
