Lucky Duck - 2000 - Regional (US)

Based on "The Ugly Duckling" by Hans Christian Andersen

The show follows homely songbird Serena from her fowl days of barnyard mockery to her triumphant success as a supermodel swan. Viewed as an odd duck by her family, Serena flees the farm to seek her special destiny in the big city. With the help of some unexpected animal allies, she soon comes out of her shell, and decked out in high fashion feathers, she enters a national singing contest with her heart set on the championship and a date with the prince! As her journey progresses, she discovers that beauty is only feather deep, and she must find her own voice to succeed.
