THE UGLY DUCKLING AND THE SELFISH GIANT
With Sea Legs Puppet Theatre
The Ugly Duckling – Meet a host of colourful characters in this adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale of belonging and identity, as the troubled duckling is run out of the farmyard into a cold, lonely wilderness. Journey through the seasons as the hapless creature finds his way in a hostile world. But do not fear! In a grand musical finale to melt even the coldest of hearts, a happy ending awaits our humble hero.
The Selfish Giant – Since building a wall to keep the children out of his magnificent steel sculpted garden, the only visitors the Selfish Giant gets are Lady Snow and her friends.
