The Ugly Duckling
Written by Rob Ormsby and
Directed by Rachel More
3 – 17 July
4 Moncrieff St., Mt. Victoria
A hilarious adaptation of the classic story about an unusual little duckling who doesn’t fit in and is shunned by those around him. He leaves to find his own place in the world, meeting a number of well-known children's storybook characters along the way, who try to help him.
A quacker of a tale proving that you can't judge a book by its cover!
