The new musical comedy, by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe is a family oriented show that will appeal to children and adults alike. With a tuneful, pop score and delightful characterizations, it retells the Hans Christian Anderson story of the out-of-place duckling who eventually discovers he is a swan. The show originated in England, where it won the 2000 Olivier Award for best new musical, beating out both The Lion King and Mamma Mia in the process.

The cast features Jed da Roza as the duckling, Judy Gilmer and Mike Stark as his mother and father, and Robert Sholty as the villainous cat. Danny Cozart plays the Bullfrog, Amanda Poryes and Brittanie Johnson are Queenie and Lowbutt; TJ da Roza and Kristen Francis portray Greylag and Dot. Alexis Clappin, Brinda Dixit, Ryker Johnson and Abigail Vass play the duckling’s young brothers and sisters. Other cast members include Pam Aquilar, Marisa Borowitz, Richard Cook. Tyler Crabe, Sieu Inac, Andrea Mendez, Dorothy Mickle, Hannah Muelder and Angus Ross.

Tickets prices are $ 14.00 general admission, $10 for students and seniors and $8 for children under 12. They may be purchased at the Las Positas College Bookstore, at Altamont Books in Livermore and Camerata Music in Dublin. Advance reservations can be made by calling 373-5812.
