This month's Theater for Young Audiences show is sure to leave have you smiling. Giggle with the character of Serena and learn a few morals along the way.
The Ugly Duckling meets “American Idol,” with music by the composer of Dreamgirls! This rollicking riff on a favorite fairy tale begins in the barnyard, where things aren’t going so well for a waterfowl named Serena. She’s got great pipes but is lacking in the looks department, so off she goes to the big city where she lands a wolf agent and gets a fabulous make-over. But as her journey toward superstardom progresses—with help from her animal friends (including a few that step in from other fairy tales)—Serena discovers that fame is only feather deep.
Children 4 and older only. Park at South Coast Plaza in front of Sears or Claim Jumper and walk over the bridge to the theater to save on parking. Make a fun day of it and plan for lunch or dinner at Rainforest Cafe in South Coast Plaza.
