Take a doo-wop and Motown music-filled journey through the streets of Skid Row to a struggling flower shop where meek worker Seymour has discovered an exotic plant that makes him an overnight sensation. One problem: the plant apparently craves human blood. This campy classic -- one of the longest-running shows in off-Broadway history -- was based on a '60s B-film and later made into an '80s blockbuster starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. Relive delightfully dark tunes like "Somewhere That's Green" and "Suddenly, Seymour" as the nerdy-but-lovable underdog romances his sweetheart and fights the monstrous plant -- which, it turns out, is actually an alien intent on world domination.

Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling is the story of one young “duckling” who has never fit in.
He is so different from his brothers and sisters, he is ridiculed and goes off on his own to find his place in the world. After encountering kindness and peril, he finally discovers he is actually a handsome swan.
His heartwarming journey, from the awkwardness of childhood and adolescence to grace and maturity, is filled with music and song, and teaches all of us to “dare to be ourselves.”
The California Theatre Center production of The Ugly Duckling has been acclaimed by sold-out audiences throughout the USA and as far away as Japan and Russia.
Recommended for grades K-5.
