Ugly Duckling at Segerstrom Center for the Arts

DATES: Saturday, March 18, 2023 - Sunday, March 19, 2023

MARCH 18-19, 2023

Meet the most unusual duckling the pond has ever seen! In their nest at the edge of a pond, the baby ducklings wait impatiently for Mommy’s enormous egg to hatch. But their new brother doesn’t look like everyone else. He doesn’t even quack like a proper duckling!

Teased and called Ugly by his siblings, our hero goes on an adventure in search of a place to fit in. As the seasons change the woodland trees from dark weathered branches to silver sticks of frost, the lost and lonely fledgling meets a menagerie of mischievous animals…. but where does he really belong?

Tutti frutti brings to life Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known tale with a variety of characters, inventive physicality, and live music and songs that quack and trill. This charming production plays with the importance of identity, self-worth and takes us on a journey to discover inner beauty.

Tickets are $20 per person.
