Cinderella is head over heels, but not in love…yet. She is a high-flying circus artiste working for a cruel Ringmaster and her jealous daughters who won’t let Cinderella perform her incredible acrobatic maneuvers. Instead, she must cook and clean for them. But this doesn’t stop her from practicing in the moonlight where her gentle spirit shines. The circus is commanded to perform at the Handsome Princes’ Ball. Cinderella is forbidden to attend, but with the aid of her “Fairy Godmother” – P.T. Barnum – she transforms her act into pure beauty for all to enjoy. Does Cinderella find her Prince before midnight? With trick marionettes, circus animals, space travel, Jules Verne, and even a moon monster, there’s no telling what may happen in this charming adaptation.
Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the Center’s museum exhibition, Puppets: The Power of Wonder, temporarily re-named Barnum’s Museum Midway, complete with puppet animals, creatures, and performers from around the world. Free with the purchase of an admission ticket. Check out the Flickr gallery here.
