Adults will get kids prices through December for Puppetmongers' Cinderella in Muddy York, running at 2pm daily Dec. 28-January 5 (no show Jan. 1) at Theatre Passe Muraille.
Cinderella in Muddy York is a playful retelling of the classic tale with a uniquely Canadian twist. Join us in the year 1834 in "muddy" York just as it is about to be renamed Toronto.
Young Ella, born and raised in Canada, is expected to cater to every whim of her recently landed step-mother and sisters. When a letter arrives from Government House inviting them to a Ball in honour of the city's renaming, hopes are high of meeting the bachelor son of the Lieutenant Governor. With a little fashion assistance from the friendly French fairy godmother, Cinderella bamboozles her family and captures a heart while losing a slipper.
This show is kid-friendly. Perfect for ages five and up.
