Ugly Duckling

Presented by tutti frutti Productions

The children were absolutely captivated, lost in the story and their imaginationsRyedale Mumbler

Woodland trees transform from dark weathered branches, to silver sticks of frost, while hidden in brushwood, beside an ice-covered lake, a lost rejected duckling stares skyward at the migrating swans, yearning to belong and marvelling at their beauty....

Moving through all 4 seasons, tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal bring to life Hans Christian Andersen’s well known tale.
With a menagerie of mean farmyard animals, depicted through inventive physicality, and with live music that quacks and trills, this charming production plays with ideas of identity, a sense of belonging and the journey to discover inner beauty.
