NARRATOR: Once upon a time there was a kind carpenter named Geppetto.
GEPPETTO: I feel very lonely , and I have nobody to talk to. I work all day making chairs and tables, but now, I will do something different. Something I have never done.
NARRATOR: So he took a piece of pine wood and started making a puppet. He worked all day carefully carving each detail.
GEPPETTO: How beautiful it is!. How I wish that he were a real boy. I have always wanted to have a son. Your name will be Pinocchio.
NARRATOR: That night when Geppetto was sleeping, a Blue Fairy came to his house. He stared at the puppet and said.
BLUE FAIRY: Pinnochio, it is true, you are beautiful, and with my magic wand I will give you life.
NARRATOR: Then the puppet opened his eyes and started moving slowly. And the fairy added.
BLUE FAIRY: Pinocchio, I want you to be a brave, honest and a generous boy. So every time you tell a lie, your nose and your ears will grow, and when you tell the truth, they will be normal again.
NARRATOR: Then the fairy disappeared. Next morning, when Geppetto woke up he heard somebody calling him.
PINOCCHIO: Father. Father
GEPPETTO: Who´s calling me?.
PINOCCHIO: It’s me, Pinocchio. Don’t you recognize me?.
GEPPETTO: It seems like I am dreaming. Finally I have a son!.
NARRATOR: A few days later Geppetto started thinking about Pinocchio´s education.
GEPPETTO: Pinocchio, you need to go to school.
PINOCCHIO: But, father, I want to be with you always.
GEPPETTO: So do I, Pinocchio, but you have to learn. I want you to be an intelligent boy. I can not teach you many things that you can only learn in school.
PINOCCHIO: Then, I will go to school!. I will study hard so that I can have a good job and earn a lot of money.
GEPPETTO: We don’t need the money, Pinocchio. We are happy the way we live.
PINOCCHIO: I know father, but I want to buy you a coat.
GEPPETTO: Very well, but now, go to school, it’s getting late.
PINOCCHIO: Good-bye father!.
GEPPETTO: Good-bye, Pinocchio!.
NARRATOR: When Pinocchio was on his way to school he heard a man shouting.
MAN: Come in, ladies and gentlemen!. Come and see out puppet show!.
PINOCCHIO: A puppet show?. Wow, puppets like me. I have to go and see them.
NARRATOR: So Pinocchio instead of going to school, he went to see the puppet show.
PINOCCHIO: Oh, I am so happy that I want to dance with them.
NARRATOR: And he climbed onto the stage and started dancing. But soon he realized that they were not real puppets like him.
PINNOCHIO: I can dance and sing better than these puppets and I don’t need strings like they do.
PUPPET MASTER: Get off my stage!.
NARRATOR: Then when the audience saw that he didn’t have strings they started shouting.
AUDIENCE: Hooray, hooray!.
PUPPET MASTER: They liked him!. Boy, do you want to be in our show?. You can earn a lot of money!.
PINOCCHIO: No, because I have to go to school.
PUPPET MASTER: Then take these coins. You danced very well.
PINOCCHIO: Thank you, sir.
NARRATOR: And Pinocchio left the theater and started walking to school. Then he heard someone calling him.
CAT: Well, well, well!. Are you in a hurry, little boy?.
PINOCCHIO: Yes, I am going to buy a coat for my father.
CAT: Oh, come on, that’s not enough money to buy a coat. Wouldn’t you like to have more?.
PINOCCHIO: Yes, but how?.
CAT: That’s easy. If you plant your coins in the Field of Miracles, a plant will grow and it will give you a lot of money.
PINOCCHIO: And where is that field?.
FOX: We will take you there.
NARRATOR: So the cat and the fox, who in fact were two liars, took Pinocchio to a far away place.
PINOCCHIO: Is this the place?.
FOX AND CAT: Yes it is. This the place where you will give us your money!.
PINOCCHIO: But you said…
CAT: I know what I said!.
FOX: Didn´t they tell you not to trust strangers?.
NARRATOR: Then they took Pinocchio’s money, tied him to a tree, and left him there all by himself.
PINOCCHIO: Help!. Help!. Somebody help me, please!.
NARRATOR: But nobody heard him. Then the Blue Fairy appeared but Pinochio could not tell her the truth.
BLUE FAIRY: And where did you loose the coins?.
PINOCCHIO: When I was crossing the river.
NARRATOR: Then Pinocchio felt strange.
PINOCCHIO: What is happening to me?. Why is my nose growing?.
NARRATOR: And he started crying.
BLUE FAIRY: I once told you that every time you tell a lie, your nose will grow and when you tell the truth, it will shrink. Now, go straight home and don’t stop for any reason.
PINOCCHIO: Thank you good fairy, I will never lie again. You can be sure of that!.
BLUE FAIRY: I hope so, Pinocchio.
NARRATOR: When Pinocchio was on his way home, he met two boys that were laughing and playing.
PINOCCHIO: What is happening?.
BOY 1: We are going to Fun Land.
PINOCCHIO: What kind of place is that?. I never heard of that place?.
BOY 2: It’s a place where there’s a party every day!. There are no schools and no teachers.
BOY 1: Do you want to come with us?.
NARRATOR: Then the Blue fairy appeared.
BLUE FAIRY: Didn’t you promise you would go to school?.
PINOCCHIO: Yes, I have been there.
NARRATOR: And then his ears started changing. Now he had donkey ears.
PINOCCHIO: Uh, uh, I am sorry. I lied again.
BLUE FAIRY: Go home, Pinnochio!.
PINOCCHIO: Yes, Blue Fairy.
NARRATOR: He went home, but Geppetto wasn´t there. Then he heard someone calling him.
NEIGHBOR: Pinocchio!. Pinocchio!.
PINOCCHIO: What´s wrong?.
NEIGHBOR: Pinocchio, I was at the beach and I saw Geppetto going into the water, when suddenly a big whale swallowed him!.
PINOCCHIO: Let’s go, I have to save him!.
NARRATOR: Both went to the beach.
PINOCCHIO: You stay here, I will go into the water and find that whale.
NARRATOR: When the whale appeared again, it swallowed him too. When he was inside the whale he saw Geppetto and both hugged.
PINOCCHIO: We have to get out of here. We will burn a fire so the whale opens its mouth.
NARRATOR: And they did. When they were out of the whale’s mouth they swam towards the beach. Then the Blue Fairy appeared.
BLUE FAIRY: Geppetto, your dream will come true!.
NARRATOR: And the Blue Fairy touched Pinocchio with her magic wand.
PINOCCHIO: Look at me father! I am a real boy!.
