At State Theatre New Jersey

Order Seats: $8

UK based tutti frutti productions brings to life Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling with a menagerie of mischievous animals, inventive physicality, and live music and songs that quack and trill. This charming production plays with the importance of identity, self-worth, and takes us on a journey to discover inner beauty.

Meet the most unusual duckling the pond has ever seen! In their nest at the edge of a pond, the baby ducklings wait impatiently for Mummy’s enormous egg to hatch. But their new brother doesn’t look like everyone else. He doesn’t even quack like a proper duckling! Teased and called ugly by his siblings, our hero goes on an adventure in search of a place to fit in. As the seasons change the woodland trees from dark weathered branches to silver sticks of frost, the lost and lonely fledgling meets a menagerie of mischievous animals…. But where does he really belong?
