as Jiminy Cricket, who is the comical and wise partner who accompanies
Pinocchio on his adventures after having been appointed by the Blue
Fairy to serve as Pinocchio’s conscience.

The musical of Pinocchio is based on the Disney film which itself was based on the book by Carlo Collodi and it tells the story of an old wood-carver named Geppetto who carves a wooden puppet named Pinocchio who is brought to live by the Blue Fairy who tells him that the puppet can become a real child if he proves himself to be brave, truthful and unselfish. Thus begins the puppet’s adventure to become a real boy which involves many encounters with a host of characters.
