ACT 3 International presents The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio – REVIEW

ACT 3 International - The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio

ACT 3 International presents ‘The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio’ marks the return of Lyngo Theatre, the popular U.K. based Children’s Theatre company, whose last show here ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ in September 2016, captivated audiences with its atmospheric setting, original music, ingenious use of specially-designed handmade props and riveting acting by Patrick Lynch, who is also Artistic Director of Lyngo Theatre. 

In this production, audiences can look forward to a magical escape into the world of crickets, cats and foxes that seem to have leapt out of old and dusty books! As strings are pulled and pages are turned, who ‘nose’ if Pinocchio might become a real boy and find his father?

We have been looking forward to catch the show, if you have read or watched the story of Pinocchio, you would be familiar with this wooden puppet boy especially when he is lying, his nose will grow.  ‘The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio’ is presented by Artistic Director, Patrick Lynch who is a master storyteller specialising in children’s theatre since 2003. The entire show is put together and presented by just Patrick himself who captured the audience’s attention with his skillful portray of various characters coupled with creative props and building up the audience’s moods with enchanting music. 

The stage is a simple set up with piles of books and innovative handmade props. Pinocchio comes alive with Patrick’s mastery in story-telling that brings us to the magical world as we join in the adventure with Pinocchio. Patrick often tickles us and made us laugh with his funny jokes and trigger our imagination thinking who and what will Pinocchio experience next? Many in the audience especially the kids are also curious how did Patrick operate the props while telling the story? 

Our little boy was wide-eyed throughout the show and listening attentively to the story. He too was wondering how did the props work? Fortunately at the end of the show, Patrick will have a questions and answers session where you can ask him questions. We have learnt many things about Patrick’s techniques in operating the props which we will leave you to find out when you watched the show.

The part that impressed us the most is the part how did Patrick grow the “nose” as Pinocchio? He uses ice cream cones, place it one by one to present Pinocchio’s long nose and after that he will crush all of them so skillfully and quickly when Pinocchio’s long nose went back to normal once he promises not to lie.

Patrick will have a Questions and Answers session at the end of the show where he will share and answer queries that you may have and clear your doubts on how he operates. We see many children are eager to ask him questions and are excited with the show! It is truly an enjoyable experiences for all of us! 

Bring your little one to watch ‘The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio’ and be amazed with Patrick Lynch’s mastery in story-telling when he brings the story of Pinocchio to life!

Giveaway Alert: A Wonderland of Toys by ACT 3 International! - [CLOSED]

School holidays is coming! Thinking of where to bring your child?

ACT 3 International presents A Wonderland of Toys! A fun-filled, experiential and immersive workshop suited for 4 to 8 year olds!

All the toys in A WONDERLAND OF TOYS have lost their MAGIC and they need your HELP to bring them back to life. All you need is your imagination and the power of belief and you might just see the tin soldiers marching, dolls talking, cars zipping and many others move again!

Once again, the beautiful ION Art Gallery will be decked out in a mishmash of colour and excitement as you build the moment with imaginative creativity and have amazing fun!

Specially catered for children aged 4 to 8, this experiential and immersive event will kick off with a fun and engaging theatrical performance as you meet Tina the Toy Maker and her assistants. After that, your child will participate and enjoy being a part of not one, but three fun workshops – a drama workshop where the children will learn how to use their bodies to move as the different toys found in the toy shop, a visual arts workshop where they will learn how to make their own toy costumes, and a singing and dancing workshop where they will memorise a charming number.

This is a fun-filled drop-off performance-workshop for the little one and parents are invited to return 25 minutes before the end to watch a lovely performance with your precious star! Towards the end of the workshop, parents will be treated to a lovely parade of marching and performing toy-children as they take you around their incredible wonderland.
