Born bigger and different than the other hatchlings, the Ugly Duckling is ridiculed by his brothers and sisters, bullied by the other ducks, and eventually shunned by the entire barnyard. The young bird leaves home, embarking on a rollicking journey through hecklers, hunters, and hilarious hi-jinks only to discover that the beauty he was seeking was inside him all along.

For over two centuries, Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling” has been a childhood favorite worldwide.


This poignant musical reminds us all that deep down, we’re all the same!
