“Captivating for children and adults alike.” - Austin Chronicle

Cenicienta is a modern, bilingual stage- adaptation of Cinderella that tackles culture, family, and the power of language. When 10-year-old Belinda is locked in the family basement with instructions from her stepmother and stepsisters to prepare for the party upstairs, she uses her imagination to re-enact the story of Cinderella using objects around her: napkins, teapots, and doilies, to name just a few. In the process of acting out this story and connecting to her family history, she learns to stand up for herself and take charge of her life and dreams.
