Fiery Seahorse Productions Releases Scene Links and Digital Program Book of 2022 Reading of Marie Yuen's Adaptation of "Ye-Xian: The Chinese Cinderella" ("C2")
Marie Yuen's adaptation is based on "Yeh-Shen: A Cinderella Story From China," as retold by Ai-Ling Louie from a story translated from The Miscellaneous Record of Yu Yang as written by Tuan Ch'eng-Shih. Marie Yuen has adapted this magical story for musical theater, serving not only as book writer but as a lyricist on the project. Yuen and Liz Lai of the Greater Los Angeles, California Area worked from the Chinese version of the story, adapted into English by Yuen.
The production was directed by Ginger Leopoldo; produced by ENERI Communications;

Guests also had the opportunity to view the then Museum 4th Floor Gallery exhibit: "Laura Lynn Hsieh: Mahjong and Dumplings," featuring ceramics and video by artist Laura Lynn Hsieh. This exhibit is part of CAMOC's Spotlight Series, curated by Larry Lee.
Special guests giving remarks included: Illinois State Representative Theresa Mah (D-2nd); City of Chicago Alderman Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25th Ward); and newly-appointed City of Chicago Alderman Nicole Lee (11th Ward), with the latter introduced by Olive Leopoldo, Youth Ambassador.
