Duckie is a re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling, with a message of respect and self-acceptance at its core.
Set in an animal circus, we join him on his search to find a tribe and be accepted. Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange? Looking unlike the rest? Watch Duckie triumph by realising these are his strengths.
A classic tale of identity and belonging told through music, narration and dress-up, topped with Le Gateau Chocolat’s distinctive baritone vocals.
Age guidance: 3+. For the young and young at heart.
Reviews ‘Totally engrossing… all are won over by the sheer magnetism of the performance.’ ★★★★★ The Reviews Hub ‘A baritone voice that makes the earth shake.’ Basement Jaxx 'Duckie is a beautiful, thoughtful show... Salvation isn’t going to be found by turning into a beautiful swan – it comes from accepting yourself and realising it’s ok to be different.’ Circles and Stalls 'Duckie delivers a message of acceptance and tolerance that resonates with adults and sews a seed in young children that hopefully blossoms in every new generation.’ Live Art Alive ★★★★★ ‘A reinvention of family theatre.’ Critics Choice, The Reviews Hub
