It is a striking story that gives a peek into the wisdom of Russian folklore. In true Galli style - humorous and with lots of music, live Russian music and movement parts! All Ages.

"At her school, my daughter was asked for her special skill. Some kids picked cooking or drawing. Our daughter, Lana, said her skill was that she could ‘play Cinderella over and over and over again.' Lana loves Galli's plays. Thanks for all of Galli's great work for kids -- helping to build their imagination and self-esteem," said Steven Weiser, associate general counsel at Ernst and Young.
