DUCKLINGS

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 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.

ROYAL EXCHANGE THEATRE - 17TH DECEMBER 2019 - 5TH JANUARY 2020.

Ducklings was originally commissioned in 2018 by Hull Truck Theatre.
