Le Gateau Chocolat: Duckie

  • Wales Millenium Centre Bute Pl, Cardiff Bay CF10 5AL United Kingdom (map)

Duckie is La Gateau Chocolat’s reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Ducklingwith a message of tolerance and self-acceptance at its core.

Family-friendly glamour and glitz takes centre stage as critically acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat breaks out of his shell in his first work for children, a classic tale of identity and belonging.

Set in an animal circus, we join him on an adventure of self-discovery, asking questions of the ‘happy ever after’ in a celebration of difference. Walking a little differently? Sounding a bit strange? Watch Duckie triumph by realising these are his strengths.

A totally engrossing piece… From small child to the most seasoned of adult theatre-goer – all are won over by the sheer magnetism of the performance.
