WELCOME TO SPOTLIGHT PUBLICATIONS


NEW
PINOCCHIO
By Susan Mosley
This version of the classic tale is based on The Adventures of Pinocchio by the Italian writer Carlo Collodi, but may be more familiar via the 1940 Disney movie. The cast includes familiar characters such as Geppetto the woodcarver, the Blue Fairy, the Cat and the Fox, and Lampwick; but also new (pantomimic) ones: Dianora the Dame, Viscard, an evil puppetmaster, and a Principal Boy and Girl. The author has cunningly incorporated three of the above, (Cat, Fox and Lampwick) into comedy double acts.

Pinocchio

Plot Summary
Geppetto always longed for a son so makes the next best thing: a life-size wooden puppet.  Azzura the Blue Fairy casts a spell and makes Pinocchio come alive but his misbehaviour causes nothing but trouble.  Dianora, always on the lookout for a new husband, tries her best to help teach Pinocchio in her role as local schoolmistress without much success.  Raffaele and Florence befriend Pinocchio as their love for each other grows stronger. But when Viscard the evil Puppetmaster  kidnaps Pinocchio everyone comes together to help rescue Pinocchio.  A dramatic ending takes place in a circus big top but will Viscard’s evil plan to become rich and famous be foiled?  Will Pinocchio get his wish to become a real boy?  As in all good pantomimes a happy ending is guaranteed.

Running time: approx. two hours

TWO NEW PLAYS


By Claire Scott

TINSELLITIS
A challenging and very funny play about Xmas fairy lights, full of colourful characters and racy humour.

Plot Summary
There’s almost a full year from the day the fairy lights go back to the loft and the day they are unpacked for another festive season. A very full and busy year. For them, not us.  As the lights are unpacked once more the story of their year unfolds. Sometimes, sweet, sometimes harrowing, sometimes just plain daft, the fairy lights air their grievances and share their memories with us.

Running time: 35 minutes.
