ABOUT CINDERELLA EATS RICE & BEANS: A SALSA FAIRY TALE
What will happen to Cinderella at the ball…game? That’s the surprising climactic question in this contemporary Latin-American Cinderella musical, which delightfully turns the classic fairy tale on its head, telling the story from both Cinderella and the “stepsister’s” perspective. Cinderella, a newcomer from Puerto Rico, comes to visit her “stepsister,” Rosa, in the United States. The catch … Cinderella only speaks Spanish and Rosa only speaks English. Will these two girls be able to reach an understanding at the (basket)ball game?

With a fairy godfather and other delightful twists to the original story, Cinderella Eats Rice and Beans: A Salsa Fairy Tale crosses language and gender barriers, weaving a subtle lesson on empathy, sportsmanship and respect.

Boys and girls will be cheering in their seats. Lauded by audiences, theaters, schools and academics, Cinderella Eats Rice and Beans: A Salsa Fairy Tale is a groundbreaking bilingual children’s musical from the award-winning team of playwright Karen Zacarías and composer Deborah Wicks La Puma. Commissioned by Imagination Stage.

ABOUT THE  JUNGLE BOOK
Mowgli is rambunctious and curious, scrappy and silly. Sound like a kid you know? This new adaptation of the beloved Rudyard Kipling story finds a child lost in the Indian jungle, where he is adopted by Baloo the Bear, Bagheera the panther, and all the beasts who call the mysterious wilderness home. This fast-paced retelling keeps you perched on the edge of your seat as young Mowgli comes face-to-face with sneaky monkeys, noisy vultures and his mortal enemy: the tiger, Shere Khan. Growing up in the dangerous Indian jungle, Mowgli must discover what family and friendship really mean.
