Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on adventure of self-discovery all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be. With its bouncing score and universal story, the touching musical with plenty of heart will captivate audiences. The award-winning production staff includes Director Laura O’Meara, Vocal Director Cris Wo, Choreographer Cydney Trent, and Stage Manager Jessica Kishbaugh.
