Prologue Pick: Pinocchio

Festival Theatre Ambassador Jacob Simmonds wanted to reflect on his favourite show of the Winter season as well as looking forward to what's coming up! 

"There have been some magnificent shows during the Winter season, some of which have brought joy, laughter, inspiration and tears. There was one show that stood out the most to me, which is A Monster Calls. I believe it covered bullying and a cancer story which people can relate to the characters. As an audience member, you can feel their pain. It was such an honour to sit in a rehearsal and to meet such a talented cast. I would like to wish them luck with their tour which finishes in Washington DC.

"I am looking forward to this year's Festival season. There are some amazing shows coming up and I'm looking forward to hearing what shows are going to be in the Spiegeltent this year. I'm really looking forward to seeing the Youth Theatre's Christmas show, Pinocchio. It's going to be interesting to see how they're going to adapt the story on stage.

"I would like to wish the best of luck to all of the cast members in this year's Festival 2020 season at Chichester Festival Theatre."
