Recently (lucky me!) I won two free tickets (through Seattle's Child) to Cenerentola: The Italian Cinderella Story at the Northwest Puppet Center.

The Carter Family Marionettes performed the Venetian Cinderella story that they translated from a centuries-old document, with a few modern phrases thrown in for comedic value. We all loved it and Matthew especially laughed hysterically at some points.

We weren't allowed to use flash photography during the performance, but the Carters came out after the show and let the kids have a gander at the puppets. It was unbelievable that only two puppeteers put on such a complicated show.

The building itself was worth a visit even without a show going on (we loved the displays of antique puppets in the lobby), but we will definitely be back for future performances...
