Discovery: Cenicienta - A Bilingual Cinderella Story

Mar 8, 2024

60 Minutes

No Intermission


Ten-year-old Belinda is a budding poet and loves to tell stories, but when she’s stuck in the basement preparing for a party upstairs that her stepmother and stepsisters will host, she’ll have to get creative. Belinda re-enacts the classic tale of Cinderella, using whatever objects are at her disposal: napkins, teapots, and doilies, to name just a few. With these everyday items, a healthy dose of imagination, and a love of poetry passed down by her father, Belinda imagines a bigger world for herself. She must learn to stand up for herself and take charge of her life and dreams. This captivating bilingual performance is a modern spin on the beloved fairy tale and tackles cultural heritage, family, and the power of language.

Written by Caroline Reck and Rupert Reyes. Produced by Glass Half Full Theatre.
