Papermill Playhouse Performs Pinocchio for the Stepping Stones School

February 7th, 2019

On Wednesday, February 6th, the Paper Mill Playhouse Children’s Theater on Tour made another visit to The Arc of Essex County’s Stepping Stones School to perform Disney’s “My Son Pinocchio Jr.”  The Disney classic came to life with a new twist as the story was told through the eyes of toy maker, Geppetto. The students loved the costumes, music, and dancing and even got to meet the young performers after the show.

The Arc of Essex County's Stepping Stones School is a Department of Education Approved Private School for Students with Disabilities serving children ages 3-10.  Located in Roseland, NJ, the school is designed to meet the developmental and educational needs of children with cognitive impairments such as Down syndrome and other students with similar educational and developmental needs.
