The Ugly Duckling

The Ugly Duckling

Sea Legs Puppet Theatre perform ‘The Ugly Duckling’ By Hans Christian Anderson (Adapted by Rob Ashman & Matthew Hart)

Float downstream with the Story Man, in Sea Legs Puppet Theatre’s gentle, musical adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale of belonging and identity.

Meet a host of colourful characters, as they run the troubled duckling out of the farmyard into a cold, lonely wilderness. Journey through the seasons as the hapless creature finds his way in a hostile world.

But do not worry! In a grand musical finale to melt even the coldest of hearts, a happy ending awaits our humble hero.

Set on the banks of a magical river, brilliant storytelling, fantastic puppets and a delightful new musical score make this a must see show for little ones and their families.
