Like theatres all across the country, the Lyric, Northern Ireland's national producing theatre, closed in March 2020 just as Pinocchio The Greatest Wonder of the Age was about to enter early pre-production. The show was later postponed.


Paul has a long history of working with the Lyric, which is located in the heart of his native city of Belfast, and previous shows there have included Alice The Musical, Molly Wobbly's Tit Factory, Hansel & Grettel, and 2019's hit musical of Peter Pan - Paul's last show to be staged before the lockdown in 2020.

Schools performances of Pinocchio The Greatest Wonder of the Age are at 10:15am on weekday mornings throughout December.


Public performances are at 6pm on weekdays, 12:30pm and 5pm on Saturdays, and 4pm on Sundays.  Christmas week shows are at 12:30pm & 5pm and the performances on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve are at 2pm.  For more details click on the performance schedule on the right.
