A musical, one-man puppet show featuring puppeteer Manuel Morán, tells the classic story in a new and exciting way, employing masks, black light, marionettes, shadow puppets, animation, direct manipulation puppets, and object puppetry.  The production captures the charm of the original folktale and conveys a message of hope, family and love, using Mexican rhythms and styles of music.

This is a hilarious re-telling of the classic story with a magical twist.  Everyone knows what happened at the ball, but no one knows what the Fairy Godmother had to do for Cinderella to win the prince's heart.  Follow Phoebe, the newest Fairy Godmother-in-Training, who learns that real magic comes from hard work and faith in yourself. 

Produced by The Whistle Stop Theatre in Ashland, VA, and written by Louise Keeton, this play is for ages 4 and up.
