This isnt no regular-degular, once upon a time in a far away land This is, Cin-DAH-rella! An African retelling taking place in a modern west African city, with a little bit of Toronto thrown in for good measure. Cindahrella follows our beloved Cindy as she comes to realize that sometimes, family can come in the form of our friends, and that first impressions are not always what they seem. Our story tells a tale of sisterhood, community, and how making the scary choice to step away from what is expected and choosing our own paths can ultimately lead us to our destiny. (
