Academy Puppet Festival: Cinderella
Date: 04/16/2012 Time: 10:00 am
Academy of Music
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.
Tanglewood’s telling is based on the original beloved tale, but they 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 fairy tale told with wit and style, Tanglewood Marionettes’ production of “Cinderella” is sure to please audiences of all ages.
