Duckie's half-term treat at Contact

David Upton

Contact in Manchester presents a half term treat in the shape of Duckie a classic tale of identity and belonging.

Family-friendly glamour and glitz takes centre stage as cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat breaks out of his shell in his first work for children, a reimagining of Hans Christian Anderson’s life-affirming tale of The Ugly Duckling.

A classic story of identity and belonging, Duckie is set in an animal circus. Peppered with dress-ups, songs, Disney references and an important message of acceptance, Duckie is a show for the entire family.

It runs from October 24 to 25.
