PreviewYouth/Family September 23, 2016 Encore Staff

ANN ARBOR – Award-winning Wild Swan Theater opens its 37th season of bringing the finest professional theater to families with The Ugly Duckling.  Resident playwright Jeff Duncan puts his spin on Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of a homely little bird born in a barnyard who is looked down on by everyone around him until, much to his delight (and to the surprise of others), he matures into a majestic swan.

Jeremy Salvatori portrays the Ugly Duckling, with Sandy Ryder, Michelle Trame Lanzi, and Barbara Scanlon rounding out the cast.  Shelly Tocco and Erin Parrish of Synergy on Stage provide the American Sign Language interpreting.  Backstage touch tours and audio-description are available for blind theater patrons.  These services are free but must be reserved by calling (734) 995-0530.

Wild Swan Theater is dedicated to producing professional children’s theater of the highest artistic quality and to making that theater accessible to low income, minority and disabled children through low ticket prices and innovative outreach programs.  For more information about the company, its current season, touring programs and theater camps, visit the Wild Swan website at www.wildswantheater.org.
