Introducing a Signature Series 2021 Production
Touring MArch 8 - May 9, 2021
The Ugly Duckling
AN ORIGINAL MUSICAL
In HSC’s first musical adaptation ever, Hans Christian Anderson’s beloved fairytale hatches to life as the Ugly Duckling sets out on an adventure to find where they belong. The Ugly Duckling has been outcast from their family, and now must navigate a challenging world filled with judgmental and dangerous animals that also choose to treat the Ugly Duckling based on their outward appearance. This story of self-discovery is a farm-fresh call to action about compassion and acceptance that’ll leave all ages quacking up and humming along! Each performance is followed by a specially cultivated post-show discussion regarding bullying and other prominent themes in the musical.
Recommended for grades K - 6 (but enjoyed by all!)
Run time: 60-70 minutes (including talkback)
What is the SIGNATURE SERIES?
In 2016, we created a new touring series devoted to producing stories that spark conversation. These bold productions require bigger sets, technical elements, and casts compared to our fall, spring, and summer shows. Because of this, venue’s must have the following:
An indoor 20’ wide x 18’ deep x 10’ high area to be used as a stage
Easy access to an outlet/power source
Access to the stage TWO HOURS before audience arrives.
