Northern Ballet's Ugly Duckling
Don’t miss Northern Ballet’s hugely popular Ugly Duckling as it returns to the stage for the first time since 2013.
Ugly Duckling is lonely and fed-up, ignored by those around her who think she is too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings as well as with frogs, cats and even a fox, but realising she is not like any of these animals, she is left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she overcomes her troubles and realises that she was beautiful all along.
Retelling the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, Ugly Duckling is the perfect opportunity for your little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre for the first time.
As seen on CBeebies, Northern Ballet’s sell-out productions for children are not to be missed.
This child friendly performance lasts approximately 40 minutes. Age Suitability: 3yrs +
