The Ugly Duckling @ Polka Theatre (19 Oct to 18 Feb)

Ugle DucklingOut tumbles the biggest, strangest duckling you’ve ever seen. Honk! Hiss! Argh!

Follow the ugly duckling through all the sights and sounds of the duckyard, as he waddles, swims and flaps his way into the big, wide world. Lost and lonely, will he ever find where he belongs?

This brand new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale is by the director and designer of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the composer of Skitterbang Island.

The Ugly Duckling promises to be a playful and tender production, brought to life with delightful music, movement and puppetry.

Running Time 45 minutes

Some performances throughout the run of The Ugly Duckling have been adapted to make them suitable for children ages 1 – 2 years. These shows are slightly shorter at half an hour long instead of the full 45 minutes but still take place in our intimate Adventure Theatre. Look out for the ‘T’ symbol when booking online.  Early booking is very strongly advised.
