Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Family-friendly glamour and glitz abound in a classic tale of identity and belonging, reimagined for our times.

This version of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling has a message of tolerance and self acceptance at its core.

Critically acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat breaks out of his shell in his first work for children.

Join him on a journey through the animal circus that asks questions about the happy ever after.

Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange? Watch Duckie triumph when he discovers that his differences are his strengths.
