A retelling of The Ugly Duckling. A show for all ages, perfect for the entire family. Walking a little differently. Sounding a bit strange. Duckie knows what it's like to not fit the mould. Critically acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat is breaking out of his shell and re-imagining a childhood favourite, The Ugly Duckling, in his new work Duckie. A classic tale of identity and belonging. Duckie is set in an animal circus. We join him on an adventure of self-discovery. Peppered with dress ups, songs, Disney references and at it's core, an important message of acceptance. Duckie is a show for all ages, the entire family, children and the young at heart. Quack! Quack!

'Right, so if a gang of naughty, bad and ferocious misfits decided to kidnap the Spirit of Christmas, where would they stash her? ?Exactly. In a castle. And there's only one castle in Manchester, and some fool decided to put a theatre in it. You should never put a theatre in a castle, it's too dangerous. ?So what are you waiting for? Are you going to come and rescue me or what?' Starting outside the main doors of Contact, and roaming throughout our unique castle-y building, The Siege of Christmas is a theatrical adventure for young audiences and the taller people that look after them. It is made by the award-winning Contact Young Company and Slung Low who made the brilliant 59 Minutes to Save Christmas, and the acclaimed Camelot: The Shining City.
