Cinderella~A Tanglewood Marionettes Production

June 17th at 11am

Set in the eighteenth century and featuring a dozen lavishly costumed 30” marionettes, this production of Cinderella is a Tanglewood Marionettes showpiece. The story unfolds as the pages of a giant book open to reveal each beautifully painted setting–the village square, the rustic kitchen, the magnificent ballroom, plus many more (one of our scenes even “pops” right out of the book!). All your favorite characters are here, from gentle Cinderella to the bumptious Step-Sisters and the charming Prince, and each marionette is manipulated with precision and grace by our talented puppeteers. Our telling is based on the original beloved tale, but we do offer a few new surprises: Cinderella’s method of conveyance to the ball is NOT your traditional coach-and-four, and, when all hope seems lost, a clever little bluebird saves the day for Cinderella. A classic fairy tale told with wit and style, Tanglewood Marionettes’ production of Cinderella is sure to please audiences of all ages.

Hansel and Gretel ~ Tanglewood Marionettes

June 17th at 6pm

Tanglewood Marionettes’ production of Hansel and Gretel is based on the classic fairytale by the Brothers Grimm, and features melodies from the Humperdinck opera. The colorful set is in the shape of a giant story book; as the pages turn, each new and exciting scene is revealed. All the staging, scenery, and marionettes are handcrafted by Tanglewood Marionettes, and together represent over a year of construction time.

The story itself is set in the mid-nineteenth century. As the tale unfolds, Hansel and Gretel must call upon their inner reserves and learn new methods to overcome the challenges they encounter while lost in the wood

Donate to Le Chat Noir:

Thank you for all your support while our theatre has been closed.  We are a small, family run theatre that operates on our love of performance and a profusion of creativity, but also our ticket sales. In an effort to do our part to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we suspended all of our performances starting in April 2020. We reopened in July 2020 with extremely limited programming and capacity to allow us to continue safe practices during this unpredictable time. Please keep an eye on this events page and sign up for our newsletter to hear about all of our upcoming events! As we work towards regaining our programming, please be patient with us; and any support is immensely appreciated. We miss you all terribly and can’t wait to entertain you again!
