CINDERELLA IN MUDDY YORK
Presented by Puppetmongers Theatre
December 26-31 at 11am daily
A fractured fairy tale featuring a mashup of Toronto history, enchantment and humor, this is a Cinderella that Canadian children can call their own!
Puppetmongers Theatre presents the 28th Annual Winter Holiday production of Cinderella in Muddy York
Created and performed by Ann Powell and David Powell
Directed by Sue Miner
A whimsical take on Toronto history that will tickle the funny bones of adults and children alike, Cinderella in Muddy York is the classic tale reset in 1834 Upper Canada, at the time when “muddy” York is about to become Toronto. Puppetmongers’ very Canadian Ella is a kind and capable girl, who is expected to cater to every whim of her recently immigrated stepmother and sisters. With a little magic and some imaginative special effects, our resourceful girl manages to get herself to the Ball, and to the satisfying conclusion of the story.
“Plays beautifully to children and adults alike… the humour is subtle and beguiling. This show is magic for everybody.” - Lynn Slotkin, CBC Here and Now
“It’s lovely that gentle, intelligent shows for kids still exist.” - The Globe and Mail
"True masters of the art of puppetry. Their work is elegant, detailed, loving and lovely.” - The Toronto Star
Led by the brother and sister team of Ann and David Powell, Puppetmongers Theatre has been bewitching audiences since 1974 with their exceptional and inventive creations, and their winter holiday performances have become a delightful tradition for families and theatre-goers since 1990.
“Like Dream in High Park and Ross Petty’s panto, it’s one of those lovely traditions that bring richness and colour to the multi-faceted theatrical life of the city.” - Toronto Star
