Press: The Ugly Duckling and Other Stories at the Nassau Theatre

The Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company will be performing one of their most popular  shows, THE UGLY DUCKLING AND OTHER STORIES  at the NASSAU THEATRE,  in the April school holidays. The Ugly Duckling and Other Stories will run from Saturday 8th April until Saturday 15th April at 10:30am and will be staged at the NASSAU THEATRE (on the grounds of Groote Schuur High School) on Palmyra Road in Newlands.


The Ugly Duckling and The King’s New Clothes are two magical stories by the Danish ‘weaver of dreams’, Hans Christian Anderson. Filled with colourful characters, this stage adaptation sticks closely to the original fairytales. Both stories have wonderful lessons to be learnt: Don’t be judgmental (Ugly Duckling) – an ugly duckling can turn into a beautiful swan and don’t be foolish (The king’s new clothes). A fairy tale classic for children to enjoy!


The Ugly Duckling and Other Stories is one of the world`s best loved fairytales and is adapted and directed by Elton John Duffy, who has been producing Children`s Theatre and delighting audiences for the past 24 years. This is a classic fairytale with a modern twist. The show includes popular songs from Michael Jackson, Justin Beiber, One Direction, Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainor . This production stars Desle McConney, Ameera Juta, Sinead Donnelly and Elton John Duffy.
