Marionette show of 'Cinderella' comes to East Lyme
For the fifth year, the East Lyme Puppetry Project is presenting a puppetry show and using it to help re-stock Care and Share’s shelves.
Care and Share of East Lyme, Inc., provides food, financial and emergency support to individuals and families in East Lyme, Niantic and Salem. An all-volunteer organization, it runs a food pantry as part of its work.
For Sunday’s Tanglewood Marionettes’ “Cinderella” show at the East Lyme Community Center, audience members are asked to bring a canned good or cash donations for Care and Share. Gayle Booth, who is president of Care and Share of East Lyme and Salem, says that late winter is always a tough time for food banks.
As for the performance, Tanglewood Marionettes, which is based in Ware, Mass., will use 30-inch marionettes. The story “unfolds as the pages of a giant book open to reveal each beautifully painted setting,” according to ELPP.
Families might want to arrive early and stay late; a puppetry demonstration precedes the show, and a Q&A follows.
“Cinderella,” 1 p.m. Sunday, East Lyme Community Center, 41 Society Road, East Lyme; $6, plus a canned good or cash donation to Care and Share; see East Lyme Puppetry Project’s Facebook page.
