Theatre Bristol announces auditions for Pinocchio June 9, 11, 12, and 16 at Theatre Bristol, 512 State Street, Bristol, TN. Like Pinocchio himself, the classic children's story comes to life on the ARTspace stage in September under the direction of Camille Gray. No preparation is required to audition and roles are available for men, women, and children. Show details, audition times, and rehearsal dates are available at www.TheatreBristol.org/audition.

Geppetto’s mischievous wooden puppet, Pinocchio, is on a quest to be a real boy...and keep his nose in check. On his adventures, he encounters Mr. Cricket, Stromboli the Fire Eater and puppet master, Red Fox, Black Cat, Candlewick and friends, puppet friends Harlequin and Columbine, and of course, a whale. With some help from the Blue Fairy, Mr. Cricket and puppet friends, Pinocchio learns what it means to be a son.

Director Camille Gray, most recently choreographer for Theatre Bristol's production of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, has directed Godspell, as well as choreographed, stage managed, costumed, and performed in many shows. A Theatre Bristol veteran of 15 years and vice president of the Youth Service Board, she is currently pursuing a BFA in Musical Theatre at Emory & Henry College. She is supported by stage manager Abigail Combs, costumers Cameron Roberts and Whitney Brooks, and set designer Luke Gray.

Pinocchio opens August 31, and runs for two weekends at the Theatre Bristol ARTspace, Fridays at 7:30 pm, Saturdays at 5:30 pm, and Sundays at 2:30 pm, closing on September 9. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students, and will be available at www.Theatre Bristol.org. For information on school shows, please contact info@theatrebristol.org.
