Ugly Duckling


The Ugly Duckling is based on the Hans Christian Andersen classic and is brought to life by tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal. The actors are accompanied by live music and the play focuses on the importance of identity and self-worth.

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.

The show lasts 50 minutes and is suitable for children age 3 and over.
