    About "A Woodland Cinderella":  In Deborah Costine's award-winning adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella is a woodland fairy who lives with her bossy stepmother and cranky stepsister in an enormous old oak tree. When the King of all woodland fairies hosts a great ball and commands that every single fairy maiden in the land must attend, Cinderella braves her fears and shows what it means to be a true princess. Beautifully hand-crafted puppets, interactive storytelling, and nature-inspired scenery make this a fun and memorable production for audiences of all ages.

    About the Performer: Debbie is an artist and naturalist whose mission is to inspire children to appreciate nature. "A Woodland Cinderella" is her own version of the classic story that takes place in the forest. The show was awarded an UNIMA Citation of Excellence, the highest honor in American puppetry, in 2008. Debbie has also written two original nature stories for puppets: "The Twig Family in the Oak Tree" and "Turtle's New Home." She has designed and performed dozens shows for young audiences since 1974, during which time she has created over 200 puppet characters.

    Mainstage performances are recommended for ages 3 & up. For more detailed recommendations, consult with Box Office Staff.
