For 30 years, The Austin Summer Musical for Children, has been providing free musical theatre to children to all regardless of economic status.  We are pleased to audition ADULTS for our summer show


Artistic Direction by Michelle Haché

This delightful and award-winning adaptation of The Ugly Duckling, one of the world's most beloved fables, is a heartwarming celebration of what makes us special. Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out that being different is not a bad thing to be.

With its jazzy, bouncing score and universal story, this touching musical with plenty of heart captivates audiences of all ages.
