Bright Star Touring Theatre brings us this endearing story of the ugliest duckling in the nest. It is packed with audience participation and lessons about acceptance, friendship and inner beauty. Their costume designers have created poultry in motion with their brightly colored ensemble of birds. Get ready for a hilarious, heartfelt production based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale. Outcast for his unusual appearance, young Eggbert gets picked on, but learns how to handle it with the help of some friends he meets along the way. Eggbert then makes a miraculous transformation into the most beautiful swan in all the land, both inside and out. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased in advance at the ticket office at RIFP or the day of the event. Ages 5 and under are free. Shows start at 10:30 am. Show dates are July 29th, July 30 and July 31st at the Indoor Theatre, Roanoke Island Festival Park.
