In this delightfully macabre take on The Adventures of Pinocchio, the cricket is killed, a blue poltergeist haunts us all, the legendary Dogfish monster preys on our greatest fears and a little wooden puppet struggles to discover what it means to be real.
This new production of Wood Boy Dog Fish is more dangerous and immersive than ever before, with new scenes, music, puppets, masks and special effects. The action is set in the tumbledown town of Shoreside, a tourist trap built around the legend of a terrible sea monster — the Dogfish. The Wood Boy Dog Fish experience begins one hour before show time, just inside the gates of the Garry Marshall Theatre. Audiences are immersed in the mysterious and quirky carnival world with games, food, drink and surprises before they even find their seats.
Wood Boy Dog Fish is a visual feast that combines masks, highly expressive physical performance, dance, interactive sets, multiple puppetry traditions, projected media and sophisticated special effects and illusions — including 3D enhancement — to transport audiences inside an old carnival ride.
Wood Boy Dog Fish is Pinocchio like only the Rogues could imagine it. Guard your crickets.
