I always get a little nervous before our first show. We set up yesterday and we did a practice .It was very smooth. I was nervous about the dry ice and afraid to burn my hands but I used gloves and was able to slide the cauldron without problems..... if you look at this scene you can see the *smoke* effect.... It is so cool!

Below is information 2008.

I am proud to present a DVD recording of the premier performance of The Magical Marionette Theatre’s production of Cinderella!
We are a family theatre, and almost everything in our production was hand-made. From our beautifully hand-crafted stage that was built with 100 year old barn wood, to the marionettes, each handsculpted and uniquely designed from wood and clay. Our back drops were all hand-painted with oils, and most of our props were hand made as well.
The play itself is our own rendition of the beloved classic, Cinderella, which takes place in 19th century Spain. It was written by Patricia and Kate Cabrera.
The music was also entirely composed by Kate Cabrera, between the ages of thirteen and fifteen.There are five puppeteers, a curtain master, and a lighting/stage operator.
They are all my children, their names and ages as follows:
Kate (15)
Kevin (14) stage/lighting
Gabriela (12)
Joshua (10)
Rebecca (9)
Benjamin (6) curtain master
I am also a puppeteer.*grin*
