Here’s a perfect show for the preschool set to enjoy before they go back to school in September. Based on the beloved classic by Hans Christian Andersen, The Ugly Duckling follows a young bird who simply doesn’t fit in with the other ducks in the pond. Helped by some friendly forest sprites, the duckling sets out to explore the wonders of the pond. On his journey, he meets a cast of colorful characters, braves the changing of the seasons, and discovers his true self. With a beautifully created environment full of hidden musical instruments created by Klimchak, Atlanta’s percussionist extraordinaire, The Ugly Duckling brings to the stage Andersen’s transformative fable about life’s often bumpy road.
Create a Puppet Workshop and Museum Tour
Included in the full-price ticket cost is admission to the Create-A-Puppet Workshop, which is one of our favorite things to do. Patrons will create their own Ugly Duckling Marionette or pick up a Create-A-Puppet To-Go to continue the fun at home!
Save some time in your visit to meander through the Center’s permanent museum Puppets: The Power of Wonder, which includes three exclusive exhibits featuring the work of Jim Henson. My son loves to create his own puppet faces in the interactive portion of the museum. To learn how to see the Museum for free, check out my book “100+ Free and Cheap Things to Do in Atlanta with Kids.”
