About the event
Duckie is a reimagining of the Hans Christian Andersen story The Ugly Duckling with a message of tolerance and self-acceptance at its core.
Family-friendly glamour and glitz takes 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. This retelling asks questions of the ‘happy ever after’. Sometimes we're just the ducks that are "ugly" and should celebrate our differences believing we are enough.
Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange? Duckie knows what it’s like to not fit the mould.
