"A flyer plastered on the upstage wall of Arden Children's Theatre's Pinocchio announces the production's prevailing theme. It reads, 'You belong here.' ... Arden's Pinocchio empowers its young audiences not only to be active participants in the story but also to understand how it all works. By showing kids the strings that hold this theatrical production up, the production tells them not only do 'you belong here,' but 'you are a vital part of the magic.'" - Broad Street Review
