Barn Arts Collective Presents Original Adaptation of Pinocchio for Summer Show
Bar Harbor – Barn Arts Collective is partnering with New York City-based production company 3 Sticks to bring an original adaptation of Pinocchio to the Criterion Theatre every Thursday and Sunday from July 6 to September 3. The production uses puppetry, projections, and music to engage all ages in the telling of this classic story.
“This is our third year presenting a show for family audiences at the Criterion Theatre, but our first year adapting from a well-known tale like Pinocchio,” said Brittany Parker, Barn Arts Producing Artistic Director. “We’re excited to share this production with both the local community and visitors to MDI, as this story of family, love, and truth could not be more relevant in today’s world.”
Starting on Thursday, July 6, the show runs every Thursday at 11 a.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. through September 3. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at the box office an hour before showtime or online at www.criteriontheatre.org. Group rates for ten or more can be arranged by emailing [email protected].
