Madcap Puppets present "The Cinderella Files" at Oxford Community Arts Center | Arts & Culture
OXFORD, OH (FOX19) -Madcap Puppets will present The Cinderella Files, January 25, 2013 at the Oxford Community Arts Center (OCAC). This performance will begin at 7pm and is part of the Oxford Community Arts Center Family Performance Series. This performance is FREE, open to the public, suitable for ages 5-12 and appropriate for all audiences.
“Ever wonder what would happen if Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother went on vacation? In Madcap’s twisted take on the classic fairy tale, it’s up to her husband Ralph, the Fairy Godfather, to get Cinderella to the ball. With help from the audience, giant puppets, and the “big wand”, Ralph might have a chance. In this hilarious production, Madcap also explores Cinderella as it is told by the Scandinavians in Diamonds and Toads, and the Indonesian version, The Crocodile’s Baby.”
