The Ugly Duckling

A Musical Fable About the Beauty of Being Different

Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s classic children’s story, this family oriented production is perfect for kids 2-8 years old, their parents and grandparents.
Our original re-telling  combines live music, two narrators, multi-media and audience participation. Music will be provided by Ensemble Salon Classique. Four shows will be offered: English, Hebrew, Mandarin and Russian. An onstage interpreter for the Deaf will translate the English production.
The program lasts for 40 minutes plus pre- and post-show activities including outdoor water play, art projects and a gift bag with surprises for moms!
Our imaginative adaptation helps children understand that being different is okay and that whoever you are, your family will always love you. An “ugly duckling” is just a swan waiting to be discovered.


Thank you to Sigal Wilnai Tzoore for her script editing and translation to Hebrew.
