Show Overview 

Don’t miss Northern Ballet’s hugely popular Ugly Duckling as it returns to the stage for the first time since 2013.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be road closures in the Quarry Hill area during the performance week, affecting access and parking. Please click here for details.

Ugly Duckling is lonely and fed-up, ignored by those around her who think she is too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings as well as with frogs, cats and even a fox, but realising she is not like any of these animals, she is left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she overcomes her troubles and realises that she was beautiful all along.

Retelling the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, Ugly Duckling is the perfect opportunity for your little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre for the first time.

As seen on CBeebies, Northern Ballet’s sell-out productions for children are not to be missed.

This child friendly performance lasts approximately 40 minutes.

Relaxed Performanc​es

Fri 27 Oct at 11.00am
Sat 28 Oct at 11.00am

The two relaxed performances on Fri 27 October at 11.00am and Sat 28 October at 11.00am have slight adaptations to make it suitable for patrons with disabilities. They are aimed at anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment including people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, Sensory or Communication Disorders, or a learning disability. There is a more relaxed attitude to noise (voluntary and involuntary) in the auditorium, in order to reduce anxiety and ensure a safe and enjoyable theatre visit.

Patrons with additional needs are welcome at any performance in the theatre, however, if you think you or your companions would enjoy a more relaxed environment, the relaxed performances offer specific support for you. 

You can book your tickets online, but if you require wheelchair spaces, or would like to discuss your access requirements in more detail, please call our friendly Box Office on 0113 220 8008.
