“Cinderella” gets a twist with “Cinderella Samba” at Highland Park on June 8.

This contemporary twist on the classic fairy tale is presented by The CityParks Puppet Mobile and sets the story in the lush landscape of Brazil where, thanks to the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella attends Rio de Janeiro’s biggest Carnaval gala and dances the samba with Prince Paulo himself.

When Cinderella is forced to flee the gala just before midnight, the prince sets out to find the mystery woman who stole his heart in hopes of marrying her. The production features an original commissioned musical soundtrack that brings samba center-stage, handcrafted festival floats on parade, and one-of-a-kind marionettes donning their most vibrant Carnaval costumes, created by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park.

“Cinderella Samba” June 8, 10 am to 11 am and noon to 1 pm. Free performance is open to all ages.

Highland Park (Between Jackie Robinson Parkway and Jamaica Avenue in Cypress Hills, www.cityparksfoundation.org/event/cityparks-puppetmobile-presents-cinderella-samba-2).
