Duckie

Duckie

Details

Duckie is a re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling with a message of tolerance and self-acceptance at its core.

Family-friendly, glamour and glitz take centre stage as critically acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat breaks out of his shell in his first work for children, a classic tale of identity and belonging.

Set in an animal circus, we join him on an adventure of self-discovery, asking questions of the ‘happy ever after’ in a celebration of difference. Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange? Watch Duckie triumph by realising that these are his strengths.
