Disney's Geppetto and Son

Based on the original Disney television musical Geppetto, this stage adaptation featured music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by David Stern.

  • Important Note: Disney has now renamed this musical Disney's My Son Pinocchio: Geppetto's Musical Tale. For more information on the availability of this family friendly show for community or professional performance please see our Disney's My Son Pinocchio page

Presumably this name change for the show reflects more public awareness of the name "Pinocchio" compared to "Geppetto," the father in the story. What follows is information related to the original stage production of Geppetto and Son.
