Duck is yellow and raggedy, smells like a blanket, feels soft and woolly, and can do nothing without his hero, and his best friend. Everything is rosy, until one day Duck goes missing...

Duck is a simple yet heartfelt story of friendship and love showing us that we need others as much as they need us. Through movement and live music, follow the story of a boy and his best friend as they spend every waking hour together – soaring through the air, before Duck mysteriously goes missing. When the boy ventures to search for him without any luck, we’re left wondering, will Duck ever be found again? A truly beautiful story to share with those you love, and who love you. Children will giggle and gasp and parents will be taken back to their childhoods once again.

Duck based on a book by Janet A. Holmes, illustrated by Jonathon Bentley, published by Little Hare Books (an imprint of Hardie Grant Egmont).

“Duck becomes a visual poem, where the symbiotic relationship between actor and musician does away with the need for words. Using puppetry, live action, and a violin, the intimate 40-minute performance aimed at 2 to 5-year-olds, is captivating.” Stage Whispers
“ ...the audiences’ eyes were glued to the stage at all times, so as not to miss a minute of this memorable performance.” Brisbane Kids
