Perfect for grades PK-6!

Tanglewood Marionettes award winning production of Cinderella is a classic fairy tale told with wit and style, sure to please audiences of all ages.

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 a beautifully painted village square, rustic kitchen, magnificent ballroom, plus many more settings.

All your favorite characters are here, from gentle Cinderella to the silly stepsisters and the charming Prince, and yet we offer a few surprises. Cinderella’s conveyance to the ball is NOT the traditional horse-drawn coach, and, when all hope seems lost, a clever little bluebird saves the day!

Don’t miss this magical classic told in a way you’ve never seen before.
