Based on the book by Carlo Collodi
ANTONIO-A carpenter; He narrates the story so he must have warmth and a good sense of pace.
CANDLEWICK-(boy or girl) A teen-age street urchin. He plays at being a "tough guy" who enjoys getting in trouble.
GINO-(boy or girl) A teen-age street urchin; younger than Candlewick, whom he follows and tries to keep up with.
ANGELINA-A housekeeper and cook for Geppetto. Good natured, and always concerned for Geppetto's well-fare. She should be played for comedy but not as a caricature.
GEPPETTO-A puppet maker. He is kind and generous; has a twinkle in the eye, and becomes the protective parent to his boy-puppet, Pinocchio.
PINOCCHIO-A puppet; first appearing on strings. The actor must be able to create the effect of oving like a puppet, and be able to dance well. After he is brought to life he is boyish, energetic, and easily led and influenced
THE BLUE FAIRY-A beautiful lady with an ethereal and enchanted quality. She also has a touch of the mother image. She should always move gracefully. She first appears in the disguise of an old woman.
THE COACHMAN-An evil coachman who lures children to the Land of the Toys. He is bearded, dynamic, whip-cracking villain
SIGNORE VOLPONE, THE FOX-(boy or girl) He is a fox-like character who passes himself off as a singing teacher. He is comedic, crafty, fast-talking and glib. One who takes advantage of all situations.
SIGNORE GATTO, THE CAT-(boy or girl) He is a cat-like character who is both companion and conspirator with Volpone. He is eager, silly and a bit dumb, but always lovable.
CHORUS-Townspeople and the Land of the Toys People (clowns, ballerinas, toy soldiers, dancing animals, etc.)
STREET URCHINS-Part of Candlewick’s gang
