The children’s classic story, “Pinnochio,” comes to life this weekend at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Victoria Theater with a new twist and Patch wants to send lucky Patch readers.
In the NJPAC version of the story, audiences will be treated to a contemporary rap adaptation of the story featuring a hip-hop treatment.
Patch readers will be eligible for one family four-pack for the 2 p.m. Saturday, March 17 show and one family four-pack for the 2 p.m. Sunday, March 18 show. Parking is not included in the package.
If you don’t win our free tickets, you may purchase tickets at the NJPAC box office. Tickets are $22 for adults and $12 for children. The show is recommended for children age 6 or older.
The deadline for entering the contest for the family four-packs is noon Friday. Please include a Friday daytime phone number and email address so we may contact the winners Friday afternoon. Tickets will be held at the will-call window at NJPAC.
Written and directed by Helen Hayes Award winner Gregory “Psalmayene 24” Morrison and set to music by Nick Hernandez, this updated version features G.Petto, an ingenious designer of computer games and his new character, P.Nokio.
To be eligible for the contest, send an email to your local Patch editor that explains why you should win the tickets. Please put P.Nokio in the subject field.
