The Ugly Duckling

October- December 2016

Adapted by Gayle Cornelison/ Music and Lyrics by Eli Baer and Brian Bennett

Based on the classic tale of the Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen. The awkward, gray, large bird is mocked by his siblings. He sets off on a journey meeting wild ducks, Spanish ducks, swans and hunters. He eventually discovers that he’s always looked exactly as he should, and that underneath he has always been a beautiful swan. With the help of his other swan friends, he dares to be himself, and discovers where he belongs.

A Divine ‘Sister Act’ at Toby’s by Steve Charing at OUTspoken

Many musicals contain broad societal themes or historical events as the backdrop for the production. Sister Act is not one of them.
