A press release stated, “Ten-year-old Belinda loves to tell stories, but when she’s in the basement preparing for a party upstairs, she’ll have to get creative. Using everyday objects like teapots and napkins, Belinda recreates the classic tale of Cinderella.
“Glass Half Full Theatre from Austin, Texas, presents its award-winning ‘story within a story’ using puppetry, Spanish and English. As Belinda confronts her stepmother and stepsisters, she’ll learn to embrace her love of poetry and stand up for herself.
“This captivating Cinderella for all ages tackles cultural heritage, family, and the power of language. Most enjoyed by ages 5 and up. Best for grades K-6. This performance is approximately 50 minutes long.
“This is a bilingual show, with about 20% of the dialogue in Spanish woven throughout. Non-Spanish speakers will easily be able to follow the storyline using context clues within the performance.”
This show is sponsored by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
