Short Stories Tall Tales presents

Adventures of an Ugly Duckling

An interactive storytelling performance


Based on Han Christian Andersen, written and told by Hannah Summers with illustrations by Laura Bissonet

There’s more to Tully, our ugly duck, who longs for adventure beyond the farm fences. What’s over that hill, where does the river go, how high is the sky? 

One day an adventure takes Tully on a surprising journey and she finds out who she is and where she truly belongs. 

A brand new adaptation for Storytelling with interactive and sensory role-play.

An illustration of a duckling hatching from an egg in a nest.
