Trinket the Robot
A little robot who longs to become real – but is he ready for what it means to be alive?
Wednesday 10th July 2019
11.00am - 12.00pm
At the Willaura Hall.
The story is about an inventor, Dr Doovalacky, who, with the help of his assistant, a green caterpillar named Gizmo, sets out to build a robot. But this Robot is no ordinary Robot – Trinket with the ability to have feelings like a real human. The audience helps him to learn about the world, but quickly it becomes more complicated. Dr Doovalacky finds himself losing control of his own creation. Trinket learns that to become human is to not only feel wonder and joy, but also to feel other emotions like anger, fear and the sadness of saying goodbye to someone when you are not ready to. Having feelings is not so easy and to be alive means making difficult choices. Trinket the Robot is an interactive solo puppet show, based on the tale of Pinocchio. It explores emotions and offers ways for children to understand different feelings.
