The Ugly Duckling (C Theatre)

By | Published on Friday 2 August 2013

A fun, interactive and charming story about an ugly duckling that becomes a beautiful swan. This theatre adaptation expands Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale to include a whole host of characters, including a vain kitten, a self-important cockerel and a friendly toad. Each C Theatre actor successfully brings to life a multitude of animal characters, injecting each with their own amusing and lovable personality that children and adults will adore. This performance perfectly combines humour, storytelling and audience interaction, keeping children engaged and involving them in the storytelling process.  Despite the additions to the story, the performance remains true to the original tale’s moral that true beauty lies within and that being nice is more important than being pretty.

C, until 26 Aug (not 12), 10.00am.
