Lake Forest Middle School will be presenting its production of a musical, Disney’s “My Son Pinocchio Jr.,” Friday and Saturday.

The classic tale of toymaker Geppetto’s little wooden puppet will be given new life as students take the stage.

This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by Oscar- and Grammy Award-winner and master melodist Stephen Schwartz, tackling timely issues about what it means to be “the perfect child” — and what it means to be “a real father.”

Join the Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of characters as Geppetto journeys beyond the toy shop to discover the meaning of family.

The main performances will take place in the school’s auditorium on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., with a matinee taking place on Saturday at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for students, including college students with a college ID. Children ages 5 and under can attend for free.
