Texas Ballet Theater (TBT) will present the United States premiere of Pinocchio May 24-26 at Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth.

This co-production with the National Ballet of Canada and sponsored in part by the Amon G. Carter Foundation and an anonymous donor. All performances feature live accompaniment from The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra.

Pinocchio tells the beloved story of a puppet’s adventure to becoming a real boy.

Audiences of all ages will be wowed by the vivid costuming, magical storytelling and dialogue that guides the family-friendly story of the puppet who just wants to be a “real boy,” the ballet said in a news release.

The full-length, kid-friendly ballet has two acts and lasts approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, including a 20-minute intermission.

A “Wiggle Room” is available for restless children to play while still watching the performance via a screen or window. Tickets range from $20-$125 and are available at or 877.828.9200.
