Cenicienta: a Bilingual Cinderella Story
Winner of B. Iden Payne Awards Outstanding Puppetry, Outstanding Actress, and Original Composition.
Winner of Best New Play by The Austin Critic’s Table.
Co-Produced with Zach Theater and Teatro Vivo.
Easily understood in English and Spanish, this bilingual stage-adaptation of Cinderella tackles culture, familia, and the power of language. When Belinda is locked in the family basement with instructions to prepare for the party upstairs, she uses her imagination and considerable sense of self to re-enact the story of Cinderella through Object Theater (Puppetry with everyday objects). She makes discoveries about her own capacity and self worth as a person, an artist, and a member of her familia.
