Tanglewood Marionettes; Cinderella's evil stepsisters; puppets

 

 

If the Shoe Fits...

A dozen lavishly costumed 30-inch marionettes come together to retell the classic tale of Cinderella. Set in the 18th century, the story unfolds as the pages of a giant book open to reveal each painted setting, including the village square, the rustic kitchen, and the magnificent ballroom. While the performance includes all of the story's characters, Cinderella doesn't take her traditional coach-and-four to the ball, and, when all hope seems lost, a clever little bluebird saves the day. Presented by Tanglewood Marionettes. November 20 at 1pm and 3pm. FREE. Scarsdale Congregational Church, 1 Heathcote Road, Scarsdale. 914-723-2111.
