W.L. McLeod Elementary opened their production of My Son Pinocchio on Thursday, Mar. 6 to a full audience in the gymnasium.

The theatre production was directed and produced by school principal Libby Hart and the colourful and ingenious costumes were designed by Michelle Racher and Maria Bach.

There were eight musical numbers in the play and over 50 children from grades one to seven took part in the singing and dancing and sometimes chaotic mix of both.

Some of the big parts were Gepetto, played by Kostas Bach; Pinocchio as played by Isabelle Turgeon; Andie Zwick as the Blue Fairy; and Keenan Thwaites as Stromboli, the marionette manipulator.
