The Ugly Duckling (Selby Arts Festival)
Sunday, 23rd July 2017
Doors Open: 1.30pm Show Starts at: 2.00pm
Presented by Selby Arts Festival...
Float downstream with the Story Man, in Sea Legs Puppet Theatre’s gentle, musical adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale of belonging and identity.
Meet a host of colourful characters, as they run the troubled duckling out of the farmyard into a cold, lonely wilderness. Journey through the seasons as the hapless creature finds his way in a hostile world.
But do not worry! In a grand musical finale to melt even the coldest of hearts, a happy ending awaits our humble hero.
Set on the banks of a magical river, brilliant storytelling, fantastic puppets and a delightful musical score make this a fabulous show for little ones and their families.
Recommended ages – families/children age 3+
Running time: 45 minutes + 15 minutes “Meet the Puppets”
This show is on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show! But please book early as we expect this show to be a sell out.
Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not. Tickets will be available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything. All money collected will help Selby Arts Festival pay the performer, and we therefore hope you will give generously. Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay.
