The Ugliest Duckling - Q Theatre
Featuring circus, movement, colour and a heartwarming tale, Q Theatre presents The Ugliest Ducking, this winter school holidays from Thursday 11 – Saturday 13 July, 2019.

Exploring resilience, transformation and joy, Q Theatre’s adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling is a celebration of difference. Directed by The Joan’s Director of New Work Nick Atkins and starring an ensemble cast including circus artist Skye Gellman, dance theatre maker Cloe Fournier and actor Cassandra Sorrell.

The Ugliest Duckling tells the story of a homely little bird born into a family of ducks. He suffers abuse from the others around him because of his different looks until, much to his delight, he matures into a beautiful swan.
