Le Gateau Chocolat presents Duckie (online)
The Ugly Duckling Reimagined
This show is available on-demand from 16 December – 3 January you will be emailed with a link to watch as soon as it is available.
Duckie is a reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s 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, asking questions of the ‘happy ever after’ in a celebration of difference.
Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange?
Watch Duckie triumph by realising that these are his strengths.
“A reinvention of family theatre that achieves that hardest of tasks – producing a show that enthrals and engages a young audience, but one that could easily be consumed by a late night adult only theatre or cabaret audience.” ★★★★★
