Cinderella Eats Rice & Beans: A Salsa Fairy Tale

Dec 14 - Dec 16, 2017

What will happen at the ball…game? CINDERELLA EATS RICE AND BEANS: A SALSA FAIRY TALE is a fun, athletic twist on the Cinderella story, crossing language and gender barriers and weaving a subtle lesson on empathy, sportsmanship, and respect. This exciting 50-minute show mixes the contemporary musical theatre sound with elements of pop, hip-hop and Latin music. Nadia Guevara will produce and direct, and the cast will feature three actors making their New Village Arts debut.

This is show is part of Teatro Pueblo Nuevo (TPN), a new community outreach initiative celebrating the biculturalism and bilingualism of Carlsbad and North County. We will be partnering with the North County San Diego chapter of MANA, whose mission is to empower Latinas through leadership development, community service, and advocacy. This is accomplished through their Hermanitas Mentoring Program.
Book and Lyrics by Karen Zacarias, Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma.
This production is completely free, but donations will go to support TPN and our education & outreach programs.
