Wilhelm and Jakob are the ultimate odd couple. They are the Brothers Grimm. It’s late and the brothers are arguing.

A young girl appears, Cinderella and we are launched into a tale of kindness, cruelty, music and magic, slippers, pumpkins, and wolves. Blending song, illusion, and puppetry this production will be Cinderella as you’ve always known it but never seen before.
