The Ugly Duckling
book/music/lyrics Geraldine Ann Snyder
directed by Mera Kathryn Corlett with musical director Jecorey Arthur
This musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic begins with a comical egg-hatching ballet and ends with an empowering message of acceptance. In between, our protagonist is rejected from his duck family for being “different” and sets out to learn who he is and where he belongs. Featuring a fresh score that incorporates rap, this version stays true to the lesson that everyone’s entitled to acceptance and love – though sometimes those spring from unlikely places.
