There once was an ugly duckling ... Rejected by all and sundry until he wakes one day as a beautiful swan. A colourful and enchanting show, this classic Little Angel Theatre production is an audience favourite, and remains close to the spirit of Hans Anderson's perceptive story. Accompanied by live music and voices, beautifully made puppets tell the story of the little Duckling who grows up feeling "different". Meet Mother Duck and her charming family swimming in the moat, the wise Blackbird, the friendly Bug-Eyed Toad and the pompous Great Gobble-Gobble Turkey. The Duckling has many adventures. You will wish him well as he leaves the farmyard for the big wide world, hold your breath as the hunters approach, and feel sad for him as winter closes in... but you will be full of cheers at the happy ending to this classic tale! Running time: 1hr 10mins including interval
