Hans Christian Andersen: The Ugly Duckling and Other Stories

Adapted by Joseph O’Malley

From the pen of one of the greatest children's authors of all time come four of Hans Christian Andersen's most well-loved stories: The Ugly Duckling, The Princess and the Pea, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and The Emperor's New Clothes.

Learn how one little grey duckling went from social outcast to king of the pond, how a tiny pea helped a lonely prince find a wife, how a one-legged tin soldier embarked on an epic adventure and how an arrogant emperor ended up walking the streets with no clothes on!

With tales of friendship, love and plenty of silliness, there is something for everyone in this brand new production, guaranteed to captivate the child in all of us.

Perfect for 3-9 year olds.
