Children will compare and contrast the lives of Cinderella (before she was a princess) and Prince Charming, through hands on activities. Children will have the opportunity to perform a basic dance in the beautiful Staircase Hall, where Prince Charming's ball is set up to take place. The workshop is a hands on storytelling tour, which will examine the Mansion's staterooms and the servant's quarters.
