Kids Fest 2018: Ugly Duckling 
By Emma Reeves

Presented by ABA Productions Pte Ltd
February 2 – 4 2018 | KC Arts Centre - Home of SRT

Meet the most unusual duckling the pond has ever seen!
In their nest at the edge of a pond, the baby ducklings wait impatiently for Mummy's enormous egg to hatch. But their new brother doesn't look like everyone else. He doesn't even quack like a proper duckling!

Teased and called Ugly by his siblings, our hero goes on an adventure in search of a place to fit in. As the woodland trees change from dark weathered branches to silver sticks of frost, the lost and lonely fledgling hides in brushwood and stares skyward at the migrating swans, yearning to belong and marvelling at their beauty.... Where does he really belong?

Moving through all four seasons, tutti futti and York Theatre Royal bring to life Hans Christian Andersen's well known tale. With a menagerie of mischievous animals, depicted through inventive physicality, and live music that quacks and trills, this charming production plays with the importance of identity, self-worth and takes us on a journey to discover inner beauty.
