CAS PUBLIC (CANADA) PRESENTS

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 THE UGLY DUCKLINGS’ DANCING CABARET SUITABLE FOR AGE 4+ AND THEIR FAMILIES RUNNING TIME: 50 MINS Two well-loved stories, peppered with specially composed songs, introduce Cas Public’s cabaret-style versions of The Ugly Duckling and Swan Lake to young (and not so young) audiences. Energetic dance, live music and gorgeous projection sequences combine in these fun interpretations, choreographed by Hélène Blackburn. ‘You’ll be singing along to the very catchy opening and closing numbers long after you’ve left the theatre’ Shona Powell “The action was frenetic, zooming between a zippy screenplay version of Swan Lake, a breathless bi-lingual rendition of the story of the Ugly Duckling, beat-box numbers, a recipe for duck on a bed of leeks and lots of dance. Choreographer Hélène Blackburn showed the young audience how there is nothing wrong with being different through the many layers and cross-referencing connections”.
