The Ugly Duckling is a wonderful retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story about a little duckling who looks different.

Teased and ridiculed on the farmyard, Ugly decides to run away and embarks on an odyssey through the countryside. He meets a host of colourful characters and eventually discovers that he is not a duckling at all.

An inspirational adaptation of the children’s classic about being the odd one out, the story unfolds as a giant storybook opens and you hear the magic words “Once upon a time…”

The Ugly Duckling remains one of the most popular and memorable productions that The Little Company has staged. Originally presented in 2005, the production played to sold out audiences and received rave reviews from both the public as well as schools who brought their students.Told through the magic of songs and puppetry, this enchanting play will captivate and engage young children.
