Join us Wednesday, September 27 at 6pm for a special show! In this one-woman adaptation of the Cinderella fairy tale, a young girl named Belinda is bullied by her stepsisters for speaking English and Spanish. Instead of being invited to the party they are throwing, Belinda has to stay in the basement to fetch the party dresses and iron the napkins.  When she begins to tell herself a traditional Cinderella tale using everyday objects as the characters, Belinda’s active imagination and love of poetry help her write a different ending to her own story.This award-winning play, easily understood by speakers of English and Spanish, uses inventive found-object puppetry to inspire audiences to create art on their own. Presented by Brave Little Company.
