ROYAL EXCHANGE THEATRE 

CHRISTMAS 2019 

SOMETIMES BEING YOUNG IS HARD AND YOU JUST CAN'T WAIT TO GROW UP. 

You’ll be happy, you’ll be beautiful, you’ll fly. Right?

Every Christmas Swan School puts on a show, a glorious display of power, grace and flight.. Spruce is practising hard. Sidney’s just splashing.

A hilarious new show from The Herd Theatre, celebrating friendship, failure, and the magic of being young!

A fairy-light filled treat with original music and songs for ages 4 - 7 and their families.

 

Originally titled The Ugly Duckling Christmas Special, this production was commissioned by and developed with Hull Truck Theatre for a co-production with The Herd Theatre in 2018, supported by Arts Council England. 

AGE GUIDE: 4-7 years and their families
