A new spin on the Danish author Hans Christen Anderson’s The Ugly Duckling.

One by one, Momma Duck’s yellow ducklings begin to hatch, but there is one egg that’s taking its time. Finally, it cracks open to reveal a gray duckling. Odie appears to have a hard time catching up and fitting in with the others. Being left out and teased by the other ducklings, Odie finds herself having to make it through the seasons by herself. Join Penny’s Puppets for this heartwarming musical puppet play and discover the beauty in each and every one of us.

Penny will be celebrating her 20th year of puppeteering! In honor of 20 years, there will be a raffle to take home your very own puppet!

About the Penny’s Puppets

Since 2002 Penny's Puppets has been making the world a better place, one puppet show at a time.

 

Every kid has a big dream and Penny’s was to be a puppeteer. Ever since she caught a glimpse of the Muppets at the age of 3, Penny was hooked. But it wasn’t until after she had earned her Teaching Certificate in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood and had finished her Masters of Curriculum and Instruction at Portland State University, that Penny finally followed her dream and became a full time puppeteer and storyteller. Penny’s Master’s Thesis was “Teaching with Puppets in the Classroom.” In 2002, Penny started Penny’s Puppet Productions. Penny has created over 50 original story-musicals that feature dozens of puppets with their own unique personalities and voices. Penny performs in pre-K and K-3 classrooms, is a favorite at local libraries, and is a regular at community festivals throughout the Pacific Northwest. She also appears as an “Artist in Healthcare” at Emanuel Children’s Hospital. In the Fall of 2012 Penny had the pleasure of touring Colombia, South America on a puppet tour and performed over 60 shows in just 30 days for children ranging in age from 4-17 years old. In 2012 she did a similar tour in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
