Impoverished children, many with a good idea of what Cinderella’s life was like, recently acted out a version of this well-known tale in “A Native American Cinderella.”

The actors, ages 5-12, participate in Catholic Charities Highbridge Gardens Cornerstone Alianza Division after-school program.  Their older teen peers designed the children’s costumes as well as the play’s sets.  Off-Broadway Actress Mariel Ryes, who tutors at the after-school program, directed the play. The play tells the tale of a brave in search of a wife and a chief’s daughter abused by her older sisters in the wigwam they share.  You know what happens next.
