Letter from our director!
Welcome to the auditions for HCT's 2020 Spring Musical "My Son Pinocchio, Geppetto's Musical Tale" I hope you all have fun preparing for the auditions. I am more than excited to be premiering this show for my directorial debut for HCT! It's going to be a fantastic, funny, sad, scary rollercoaster ride that will be fun for the whole family! The main character, Geppetto, with the help of the Blue Fairy and her Fairies in Training tell the story of how Pinocchio came to be from Geppetto's point of view. The story does not begin nor end the way we all remember from the original Disney's Pinocchio. The characters are all exciting, entertaining individuals and put them all together and you have a guaranteed celebration of life. There are messages presented to the audience, that will wow and surprise them. It's sure to be a favorite of all our audiences. You will come to love all the characters as we all have throughout Disney's storied cornucopia of shows. I hope you are all excited too! Bring your imagination. Bring your enthusiasm. Bring your love of live theater. I can't wait to see you all at auditions!
Chuck Yaichner, Director
