4:00 PM Stage: Cinderella Eats Rice & Beans: A Salsa Fairy Tale New Village Arts and Teatro Pueblo Nuevo present "Cinderella Eats Rice & Beans: A Salsa Fairy Tale," a bilingual, athletic twist on the classic Cinderella story.

What will happen to Cinderella at the ball
game? That's the surprising climactic question in this contemporary Latin-American musical. Cinderella, a newcomer from Puerto Rico, comes to visit her stepsister, Rosa, in the United States.

The catch:
Cinderella speaks only Spanish and Rosa speaks only English. Will these two girls be able to reach an understanding at the [basket] ball game?

This groundbreaking bilingual children's musical is from the award-winning team of playwright Karen Zacarías and composer Deborah Wicks La Puma. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

Admission/Cost: FREE
