This is not your average fairytale, as audience favorite Wendy Bennett puts her own spin on the beloved tale with puppets, costumes, props and plenty of audience participation. Cinderella is a tale of transformations: pumpkins into coaches, mice into horses, shabby rags into a glistening ball gown, and talented singer/actress Wendy into Cinderella. Along the way interactive games like “Show Me on Your Face” and “High/Low Voices” will encourage children to exercise their imaginations. They will also cue parts of the story and play multiple roles in this make-believe fantasy. This show is fun for both little princes and princesses.
