– Cenicienta is a delightful one-person puppet show performed in Spanish and English  –

On Sunday, January 22nd at 1 PM and 3 PM, Queens Theatre (QT) presents Cenicienta: A Bilingual Cinderella Story – A Glass Half Full Theatre Production. In this delightful interpretation of the classic tale, performed in the intimate setting of The Studio at Queens Theatre, audience members will feel like part of the story. Seating is limited.

Cenicienta is a captivating one-person play that focuses on ten-year-old Belinda, who recreates the story of Cinderella using everyday objects like teapots and napkins while in the basement preparing for a party upstairs. A story for all ages, that tackles cultural heritage, family, and the power of language as Belinda confronts her stepmother and stepsisters while learning to embrace her love of poetry and stand up for herself. 

“We’re thrilled to finally welcome Glass Half Full Theatre’s Cenicienta to Queens Theatre. It’s been a long road,” says Queens Theatre Director of Community Engagement, Dominic D’Andrea. “This beautiful production was slated to come to the theatre in 2020 and was canceled because of the pandemic. It’s exciting to have the opportunity to bring this vibrant and magical family show to our community after a tough few years. Our wish is for family audiences of all ages, languages, backgrounds, and cultures to come together and experience a fresh take on a timeless tale. Nothing is more ‘Queens’ than that!” 

Glass Half Full Theatre from Austin, Texas, presents its award-winning “story within a story” in Spanish and English using puppetry.
