Set in the eighteenth century and featuring a dozen lavishly costumed 30” marionettes, this production of Cinderella is a Tanglewood Marionettes showpiece. The story unfolds as the pages of a giant book open to reveal each beautifully painted setting – the village square, the rustic kitchen, the magnificent ballroom, plus many more (one of our scenes even “pops” right out of the book!).
All your favorite characters are here, from gentle Cinderella to the bumptious Stepsisters and the charming Prince, and each marionette is manipulated with precision and grace by our talented puppeteers. Our telling is based on the original beloved tale, but we do offer a few new surprises: Cinderella’s method of conveyance to the Ball is NOT your traditional coach-and –four, and, when all hope seems lost, a clever little bluebird saves the day for Cinderella. A classic fairytale told with wit and style, Tanglewood Marionettes' production of Cinderella is sure to please audiences of all ages.
The performance will take place from 1-2pm on Sunday, February 28, 2016 in the East Lyme Community Center . Tickets are $5. Please bring a food item to benefit Care & Share of East Lyme. For more information, call 860-739-7225.
