CinderellaSet in the eighteenth century and featuring a dozen lavishly costumed 30” marionettes, this production of Cinderella is a Tanglewood Marionettes showpiece. The story unfolds as the pages of a giant book open to reveal each beautifully painted setting – the village square, the rustic kitchen, the magnificent ballroom, plus many more. All your favorite characters are here, from gentle Cinderella to the bumptious stepsisters and the charming Prince.

Our telling is based on the original beloved tale, but we do offer a few new surprises: Cinderella’s method of conveyance to the ball is NOT the traditional horse-drawn coach, and, when all hope seems lost, a clever little bluebird saves the day for Cinderella. A classic fairy tale told with wit and style

Classical music has never been performed like this!  Working at break-neck speed, the three multi-talented performers of The Fourth Wall combine music, theatre, and dance in this sprint-triathlon variety show. The audience chooses the show order by picking cards from a deck and even determines parameters for some pieces created on the spot. Every performance is unique! As the onstage timer ticks down, The Fourth Wall will blow your mind with tricks, bust your gut with laughter, and maybe even bring a tear to your eye with beautiful music.

Terrific, energetic and fantastic – that’s the band, the show, and the audience! “The Beatles of Kids’ Music” – are what the Zucchini Brothers, Jack, Steve and Sam are often called. “Words of Wisdom Set to Foot-tapping Music” – are what the Zucchini Brothers deliver. This band of brothers: Jack on Guitar, Steve on Keyboards, Sam on Drums (each his own character, all of whom sing) offers up a musical stir-fry of styles. You never know just what these three zany guys will do. But one thing’s for sure, once you’ve seen ‘em – you won’t forget ‘em…  Not your average bunch of vegetables, these terrific musicians bring you their latest songs from Zucchiniland, and a whole lot of your favorite Zucchini Music and fun!
