Flying visit from Ugly Duckling

The Hive in Shrewsbury will soon be hosting a performance of popular children’s classic The Ugly Duckling. The summer holiday puppet show has already proven popular this year with a high number of advance bookings and people are urged to book their tickets soon!

The Ugly Duckling will be performed by acclaimed touring theatre company Sea Legs Puppet Theatre at 2pm on Thursday August 23. The audience will be invited to join in the fun and meet a host of colourful characters, set on the banks of an enchanting river. They can float downstream in a gentle musical adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale of belonging and identity.

Featuring fantastic puppets, brilliant storytelling, fantastic scenery and a delightful new musical score, the show is a must see for little ones and their families!

Katie Jennings, Programmes and Projects Manager at the Hive said “Sea Legs consistently present high quality interactive shows that young people find fun and engaging. The Hive’s summer holiday theatre shows are always popular with our younger audience and The Ugly Duckling will be no exception! I recommend people book tickets soon to avoid disappointment as the show is destined to sell-out!”

Tickets for the show, which will be taking place on Thursday August 23 at 2pm are priced at £6 for adults and £5 for children. Tickets can be booked by calling the Hive on 01743 234970 or visiting the centre in person on 5 Belmont, Shrewsbury, SY1 1TE. More information
