With a pandemic pivot, we have expanded our awardwinning digital programming beyond its classroom offerings, and we are now able to more effectively reach our audiences around the world in over 87 countries and counting. More digital offerings both enhance and extend our in-person experiences while we engage our fans unable to visit the Center in person.

The Ugly Duckling

Based on the beloved classic by Hans Christian Andersen, The Ugly Duckling follows a young bird who simply doesn’t fit in with the other ducks in the pond. Helped by some friendly forest sprites, the duckling sets out to explore the wonders of the pond.

MUSEUM

On his journey, he meets a cast of colorful characters, braves the changing of the seasons, and discovers his true self. With a beautifully created environment full of hidden musical instruments created by Atlanta Percussionist Klimchak, The Ugly Duckling brings to the stage Andersen’s transformative fable about life’s bumpy road.
