With 2016’s edition of Pulse Festival came the UK premiere of Duckie, as part of the Festival’s children and family day.

Walking a little differently. Sounding a bit strange. This little duck knows what it’s like to not fit the mould. Critically acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat is breaking out of his shell and re-imagining a childhood favourite, The Ugly Duckling, in his new work Duckie.

A classic tale of identity and belonging, the show is set in an animal circus. Peppered with dress-ups, songs, Disney references and at its core, an important message of acceptance, Duckie is a show for all ages – the entire family, children and the young at heart. Quack! Quack!

See what’s on at the New Wolsey Theatre.
