  • About the Show

    Ugly duckling Serena runs away from her rustic barnyard to pursue her dreams in New Duck City. Her adventures with a bunch of zany characters, including Prince Drake, Galinda ("the most fashionable Goose in the City") and Wolf, a talent agent and reformed meat-eater (or is he?), take her from high-fashion runways to perilous performing opportunities. Even the happy ending is not exactly by the storybook.

    Casting Information

    Note: Characters portrayed by a single actor are grouped. SERENA (pop belter with high extension): the ugly duckling who becomes a swan, shy but plucky underneath, self-doubting but also driven, powerhouse belter who can also sell comic numbers.
    DRAKE (tenor): a spoiled prince who might never grow up, typical male ingénue, well-meaning but limited.
    WOLF (baritone): a charming, mature, take-charge kind of Carnivore who has a hard time controlling his appetites.
    MR. LAMBKINS: sweet and unassuming--the opposite of Wolf.
    MRS. MALLARD (alto): an evil step-stage-mother who is overwhelmingly self-involved.
    GALINDA: the most fashionable Goose in the city, hard-nosed about business and business totally consumes her.
    QUEEN: steely and unforgiving, arrogant and entitled.
    KING (baritone): kind-hearted and well-meaning but hen-pecked, bit of a bumbler.
    COP: Irish, no-nonsense
    ARMAND DILLO: flamboyant and exuberant, hasn't become a top fashion photographer without talent and smarts.
