The Running Rabbit Family Theatre is staging a musical version of “Pinocchio” at several dates in Bloomfield over the next two months and we have 2 tickets to give away to the show.

Why? Well, because of its Verona connection, of course: Marsha Schreier, the cantor of Congregation Beth Ahm, is the co-musical director.

Schreier has been in the pages of before, and to win today’s contest, you’ll have to dig up a piece of information on that. (What? You thought we’d let you use Google to come up with the answer to a question on Pinocchio?) We’ll give you a hint: If you use our search function, you’ll see that Schreier has been involved with two recent productions at Verona High School.

This “Pinocchio” is Carlo Collodi’s wooden puppet story–with a few uniquely Running Rabbit twists and turns. “This is the classic tale told with a wicked sense of humor,” says Patrick Starega, the show’s director. “It’s as much fun for the adults–if not more–as it is for our young audiences!”

The tickets we’ve got to give away can be used for any one of these performances at the Westminster Arts Center at Bloomfield College, which is at 467 Franklin Street in Bloomfield: Tuesday, April 13 at 10:30 a.m.; Saturday, May 15 at 10 a.m. and at 1 p.m.; and the same times on Saturday, May 22. If you don’t win, you can also catch the show at Premiere Stages at Kean University on July 14 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and at the Pollak Theatre at Monmouth University in West Long Branch on July 22 at 10:30 a.m. Tickets to all performances are $14. Pinocchio is recommended for children ages 2 and up.

So here’s the question to win the tickets: In the most recent show that Marsha Schreier worked on at VHS, who sang Madonna’s signature song?
