Tanglewood Marionettes: "Cinderella"

Saturday, February 25, 2017
10:30 am-11:30 am and 1:30-2:30 pm
Cultural Center, Newton City Hall

A February school vacation treat… 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. All your favorite characters are here, from gentle Cinderella to the bumptious stepsisters and the charming Prince, and 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. A classic fairy tale told with wit and style, Tanglewood Marionettes’ production of “Cinderella” is sure to please audiences of all ages.  Tickets:  $8 on line, $10 at the door.
