Happily ever after…..the Tanglewood Marionettes present “Cinderella”
February 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 1:00pm, repeating indefinitely
A classic fairy tale told with wit and style, this production of Cinderella is a Tanglewood Marionettes showpiece. Set in the eighteenth century and featuring a dozen lavishly costumed 30” marionettes, 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. All your favorite characters are here, from gentle Cinderella to the bumptious stepsisters and the charming Prince. Based on the original beloved tale, there are a few new surprises: Cinderella’s method of conveyance to the ball is NOT the traditional horse-drawn coach, and, when all hope seems lost, a clever little bluebird saves the day for Cinderella. During school vacation.at the Newton Cultural Center at City Hall. Tickets $8 in advance at www.newtoncommunitypride.org or $10 at the door.
