The Barn Academy will be performing this delightful and award-winning adaptation of one of the world’s most beloved fables, The Ugly Duckling. The Stiles & Drewe musical will be the culmination and the centerpiece of the students spring term production and term finale. Ideal for showcasing our talented Academy students, this winner of multiple awards, including the 2000 Olivier award for Best Musical, is a heart-warming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit and memorable score.

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 awful about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an 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 that being different is not a bad thing to be.
