Duckie

by Le Gateau Chocolat

Duckie is a reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling, with a message of respect and self-acceptance at its core.

‘Totally engrossing… all are won over by the sheer magnetism of the performance’ ★★★★★ The Reviews Hub

Family-friendly glamour and glitz take centre stage as critically-acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat breaks out of his shell as Duckie, in his first work for children.

Set in an animal circus, we join him on his search to find a tribe and be accepted. Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange? Looking unlike the rest? Watch Duckie triumph by realising these are his strengths.

A classic tale of identity and belonging told through music, narration and dress-up, topped with Le Gateau Chocolat’s distinctive baritone vocals.

WHY? ‘A baritone voice that makes the earth shake’ Basement Jaxx

'Duckie is a beautiful, thoughtful show... Salvation isn’t going to be found by turning into a beautiful swan – it comes from accepting yourself and realising it’s ok to be different’ Circles and Stalls

'Duckie delivers a message of acceptance and tolerance that resonates with adults and sews a seed in young children that hopefully blossoms in every new generation’
Live Art Alive

‘A reinvention of family theatre’ ★★★★★ Critics Choice, The Reviews Hub
