In Deborah Costine's award-winning adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella is a woodland fairy who lives with her bossy stepmother and cranky stepsister in an enormous old oak tree. When the King of all woodland fairies hosts a great ball and commands that every single fairy maiden in the land must attend, Cinderella braves her fears and shows what it means to be a true princess. Beautifully hand-crafted puppets, interactive storytelling, and nature-inspired scenery make this a fun and memorable production for audiences of all ages.
About the Performer:
Deborah Costine is an artist, author, amateur naturalist and award-winning professional puppeteer who has been presenting performances throughout New England for over thirty years. She has a degree in Art Education, teaches workshops about puppetry and art in education, is a proud mother, and has a deep care and respect for young children. She is a winner of the UNIMA-USA Citation for Excellence and received a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation for the production of her original show: ''Turtle’s New Home.''
Debbie grew up in Lancaster, NH in a region known as ''The Great North Woods.'' There were no visiting assembly programs and the only puppet Debbie had ever seen was Bunny-Rabbit on ''Captain Kangaroo.'' When she was ten she made a puppet all on her own--a papier maché clown that still sits in her studio today. In 1974 Debbie co-founded the well-known ''Gerwick Puppets'' with Len Gerwick. The company toured throughout much of New England presenting over 5,000 performances, mostly in schools. Debbie now also performs solo as Deborah Costine Nature Puppets, creating shows inspired by her interest in nature and the environment.
