U-u-ugly Duckling, The

CHILDRENíS COMEDY. Inspired by the 1844 Hans Christian Andersen tale. Mama Duck is thrilled when her ducklings finally hatch. However, when the last and largest egg hatches, Mama Duck is puzzled when Summer emerges. Summer is much larger and doesnít look anything like the other ducklings. Upon further inspection, Old Duck concludes the eggs must have gotten mixed up and that Summer is most definitely a turkey because she is so ugly. Gramma Duck disagrees and is convinced that Summer must be a tree trunk. Two geese on their way south guess Summerís either a chicken or a horse. Summer then meets a cat and hen who think she may be a big brown cow, an aardvark, a rhinoceros, a pig, a deer, a squirrel, an alligator, a snake, a tiger, or a kitchen sink. Confused, Summer ventures out on her own to discover what type of animal she is and where she belongs but she must first escape the sharp claws of Scary Cat, a pair of hunters, and a couple of hungry humans determined to eat her for supper. This charming play features a host of irresistible characters that will delight your audience.
