Pinocchio – a kids play @ Centralia Cultural Society
Nov 16 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Pinocchio - a kids play @ Centralia Cultural Society

Enjoy the play “Pinocchio”, an all-time favorite story, with plenty of local youth involved in this presentation.

Just in case you don’t know the story, here is a synopsis pulled from Wikipedia:  an old wood-carver named Gepetto carves a wooden puppet named Pinocchio. The puppet is brought to life by a blue fairy, who informs him that he can become a real boy if he proves himself to be “brave, truthful, and unselfish”.  Pinocchio’s efforts to become a real boy involve encounters with a host of unsavory characters.  Critical analysis of Pinocchio identifies it as a simple morality tale that teaches children about the benefits of hard work and middle-class values.

Little Theatre Players and Actors in Action present “Pinocchio” the musical.  With four performances, you will have several opportunities to enjoy this play.  These entertainers will also have a show for the Arts in Education during a school day.  Tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

Dec 30 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Take a drive through Foundation Park to experience twinkling candy canes, golfing Santa, or Rudolf catching some rays.  Fantasy of Lights is a holiday tradition you won’t want to miss.

At no charge, we are open from 5:00 p.m. to 11 p.m. each night through the end of the year.  Don’t miss Santa who will be at his cottage at select times to visit with children and adults.  This lighting display is presented by the Centralia Foundation.

Don’t forget to visit 600 N Pleasant for more Christmas displays and the challenge of finding “Wanda”!  Wanda moves from time to time and is a great joy to many as they drive through each week and spot where Wanda has moved.
