The Ugly Duckling
  • Brighton Fringe

Feeling different, teased by his friends and not accepted by his family, the Ugly Duckling is sad and lonely. Through a series of adventures he soon learns who he really is and his family realises it doesnt matter what you look like but how good your heart is.From the creators of The Princess & the Frog, Teddy Bears Picnic, The Owl & the Pussycat, Alice in Wonderland, The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty comes this lovely new ballet for the whole family.With the crystal-clear story telling, larger than life characters and gorgeous costumes youd expect from this innovative company, The Ugly Duckling tackles themes of social acceptance and liking yourself in a child-friendly, humorous manner.Great for the whole family, especially children aged 2-12, including people with special needs.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
