CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
There once was an ugly duckling ... Rejected by all and sundry until he wakes one day as a beautiful swan. Frost. Ice. Quiet. The farm is sleeping, snuggled up for warmth. Suddenly the peace is shattered by the arrival of? a duckling. Scruffy, clumsy and NOTHING like his fluffy yellow siblings, our unlikely, gangly and slightly wobbly hero sets off on an epic adventure to find the place where he truly belongs. Hans Christian Andersen's much-loved story comes springing to life at the hands of Sally Cookson, Benji Bower and Katie Sykes, with Travelling Light's trademark joyful and moving storytelling, enchanting live music and fantastical invention. 10 years since its opening here at Tobacco Factory Theatres, and following 5 star reviews and an acclaimed national tour, The Ugly Duckling promises to leave young and old and everyone in between enraptured, uplifted and asking for more.Performers Emily May Smith, Heidi Niemi, Heather Williams, Brian Hargreaves.
