The Ugly Duckthing @ Solar Stage, Toronto

January 14, 2017 | No Comments | #news

Are you in, or near Toronto?   Wanna see a unique puppet show, with beautiful puppets and terrific songs?  Bring some kiddies, your best friend, and your Mom, to Solar Stage.


Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen

Featuring: Marty Stelnick and Angelique Millar Stelnick

Ages 4 to 94


We all have a home somewhere, but it's not always easy to find. The Duckthing hatches in an empty nest and has no idea where it came from or where it belongs. Lucky for the duckthing, this world is full of catchy tunes and helpful creatures. But the question remains; what is that duck...thing? What is that sound it makes? And where does it belong?

We've re-imagined the Hans Christian Andersen story about fitting in to be about accepting the great uniqueness of who you are. In this world all the creatures are helpful and caring and teach the Duckthing to be proud of the things that make it special. Also, family and belonging can take a lot of different forms. Duckthing uses puppetry and music to feature the web-footed, feathered and fuzzy and tell us a very silly story about important things like love, acceptance, adoption . . . and toots . . .

Dates: January 14 - February 5, 2017
