The KZN Midlands Youth Ballet Company in partnership with Cape Town City Ballet under the Artistic Directorship of Robin van Wyk will present a new children's production - The Ugly Duckling from July 13 to 15 at the Hilton College Theatre.

This ballet production will tell the much-loved Hans Christian Anderson story of the hardship an ugly duckling experiences and his transformation into a beautiful swan.

The leading roles will be danced by members of the Cape Town City Ballet Company, while dancers from across the KZN Midlands will perform the roles of ducklings, hounds, swans, swallow, skaters and soldiers to name but a few of the many characters.

A wonderful treat for the KwaZulu-Natal public that is not to be missed!

The Ugly Duckling has performances on July 13 at 19h00, July 14 at 15h00 and 19h00 and July 15 at 15h00 and 18h30 at the Hilton College Theatre. Tickets R100 (R80 pensioners and children under 12).
