Northern Ballet: Ugly Duckling - A Ballet for Children

2nd Performance (4pm) added by popular demand - book now!

Northern Ballet, one of the UK's premier ballet companies, is delighted to present their first ballet especially for children, and we are thrilled to present it in Berwick! This is the perfect opportunity to introduce your little ones to the magic of live ballet, music and theatre.

A poor duckling is lonely and fed-up, shunned by those around her who see her as too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings as well as with frogs, cats and even a fox, but she is still left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she overcomes her troubles and turns into a beautiful swan, beginning a happy new life.

The first performances of Ugly Duckling in Leeds were a sell-out success, so don’t miss your opportunity see this adorable production. Early booking advised!

Choreographed by Northern Ballet dancers Dreda Blow and Sebastian Loe
