The Ugly Duckling and Other Stories

Red Table Theatre presents The Ugly Duckling and Other Stories. Explore four of Mr. Andersen’s famous fables with our skilled troupe of storytellers. A humorous, heart-filled and musical journey.

Take heed of the grand and foolish Emperor in his quest to look the best; listen to the sweet tunes of The Nightingale; feel for The Ugly Duckling as he does his best to fit in with the crowd and find out how big a heart even the smallest of creatures may possess in the classic tale of Thumbelina. The Ugly Duckling & Other Stories offers simple, earnest tales full of character that will ignite the imagination.



"Outstanding children’s theatre that appeals to the child within us all."


Red Table Theatre

Red Table is a new theatre company set up in 2010 by brothers Piers and Rafe Beckley, joined by Kelly Golding in 2012. Their aim is to create top quality children’s theatre productions that appeal to the child within the adult, as well as the adult’s child through an ‘open, honest and ethical’ approach, utilising the Open Book Management model.

They want to revolutionise the way that Fringe Theatre is produced using a methodology that can also be applied to film making too.
