Pinocchio's Marionette Theater in Winter Park, FL, has specialized in musical theatre interpretations of classic children's stories. Here are ten of David Eaton's adaptations along with an account of his fascinating life as an actor, clown, business entrepreneur, and puppeteer. Also included are enlightening backstage insights detailing how each script was transformed from the written page to the puppet stage.
"Puppeteers will enjoy both the plays and the 'shoptalk' that precedes them - the discussion of approaches,possibilities, problems and solutions and what works and what doesn't and why."
