Presenter: Castle Puppet Theater Sevnica


 Are we all the same? No, we are not! Andersen’s classic story of The Ugly Duckling deals with themes of vulnerability, marginalization, and abandonment of children going through growing pains, who are able to find the persistence and courage to build themselves into good, responsible and fulfilled individuals. This journey is often fraught with disappointments and opposition, but eventually rewarded with self-knowledge and happiness; one day the ugly duckling will see its image in the mirror and discover the joy of being true to oneself.
Ages: 6 – 12



This event is brought to you by the 12th annual Kids Euro Festival, a two-week long festival of European arts and culture presenting free activities to D.C. metro area children from age 2 to 12.
