Definitely no judgement here

2015-05-05 06:00

The Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company will be bringing their new show The ugly duckling and other stories to the Nassau Theatre for the Easter school holiday.

This comes after the show’s sold-out runs in Qatar in November and at the Baxter Theatre in March.

The ugly duckling and The king’s new clothes are two magical stories by the Danish “weaver of dreams”, Hans Christian Anderson. Filled with colourful characters, this stage adaptation sticks closely to the original fairytales.

Both stories have wonderful lessons about not being judgemental and not being foolish, for little theatre-goers to learn.

The ugly duckling and other stories is adapted and directed by Elton John Duffy, who has been producing children’s theatre and delighting audiences for the past 22 years.

This show stars Desle McConney (Rondebosch), Monique Rockman (Goodwood), Bronwyn Garlick (Green Point) and Elton John Duffy (Edgemead). Choreography is by Shaun Klaasen.

The ugly duckling show is filled with loads of audience participation and current popular songs from Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams and Meghan Trainor, giving the production a modern twist.

The play runs for 45 minutes and will be staged from Saturday 4 April until Saturday 11 April at 10:00 at the Nassau Theatre at Groote Schuur High School, in Palmyra Road, Newlands.


Tickets cost R55 and are available from Computicket. Call Elton on 083 364 8284 or 021 558 2650 or email for more on school block bookings. Visit for more about the Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company
