Director Sally Cookson / Revival Director Craig Edwards / Composer Benji Bower / Designer Katy Sykes / Lighting Designer Matthew Graham

    The first show we ever co-produced with the wondrous Travelling Light is back this Christmas! The multi award-winning team behind Cinderella: A Fairytale brings all its trademark magic and mastery to a warming wintry tale of family, feathers and fitting in.

    Frost. Ice. Quiet. The farm is sleeping, snuggled up for warmth. Suddenly the peace is shattered by the arrival of… a duckling. Scruffy, clumsy and NOTHING like his fluffy yellow siblings, our unlikely, gangly and slightly wobbly hero sets off on an epic adventure to find the place where he truly belongs.

    Hans Christian Andersen’s much-loved story comes springing to life at the hands of Sally Cookson, Benji Bower and Katie Sykes, with Travelling Light’s trademark joyful and moving storytelling, enchanting live music and fantastical invention. 10 years since its opening here at Tobacco Factory Theatres, and following 5 star reviews and an acclaimed national tour, The Ugly Duckling promises to leave young and old and everyone in between enraptured, uplifted and asking for more.
