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:
Kevin (14) stage/lighting
Benjamin (6) curtain master
I am also a puppeteer.*grin*
Our first performance was held November 19,2008 in the Batte Fine Arts Center at Wingate University. This was the night we professionally recorded our play.

Hello, my name is Patricia Cabrera and I am a writer and illustrator of children’s books. The medium for my illustrations is 100% lamb’s wool, with which there can be two different forms of sculpting, flat and sculptures in 3-d form. When sculpting with the wool to make sculptures, the “subject” takes its form over a wire armature, allowing extensive movement abilities. I use wool as my sole palette- no painting- to create an innovative approach to illustrating books!! If you would like to read more about wool sculpting, please visit my website at www.woolytales.com or www.7kidsfarm.com to meet me and my family.
