Rough-Face Girl, The

Synopsis:
This tale, well known among the multicultural versions of the CinderElla story, skillfully invites the audience to look past the surface and into the soul. Cast aside by her family and tribe, the Rough Face Girl survives scorns and scars to follow her heart past vision and belief. Through a blend of music, dance, acrobatics, and Native American storytelling traditions, Synetic Family theater actors help young theater goers celebrate Native American History Month and understand that beauty lies within.
