The Ugliest Duckling

One by one the eggs break open. Except for one. This one is the biggest egg of all.

Exploring resilience, transformation and joy, Q Theatre’s adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling is a celebration of difference. This small scale story filled with spectacle and sound is suitable for the whole family.

One by one the eggs break open. Except for one. This one is the biggest egg of all.

The hens peck, the roosters crow and the ducks quack around the last duckling to break free from his egg. He’s not the fastest, not the strongest and definitely not the most popular. He tries and tries and tries again. He tries until he can’t try anymore. Leaving the farm behind he runs away and comes across a river. What he sees next is something he could never have imagined.

Design, lighting, sound, set design, costuming and movement combine in a show filled with equal parts tenderness and laugh out loud comedy.

Don’t miss this brand new staging of a timeless classic.
