Celebrating its 12th consecutive season, The Children’s Theatre Company of Peekskill will presents Show Way and Ugly Duckling.
The Ugly Duckling is a story of a plain-looking little bird (the Ugly Duckling) born in a barnyard. He is teased by the other ducklings and farm animals for being plain and ugly. As a result he runs away to live with a flock of wild ducks and geese, then with a cat and hen, but doesn’t feel welcome there either and wonders on till he eventually finds a flock of Swans who accept him. The Ugly Duckling is a story of transformation and courage under fire. The story teaches us to accept one another and to accept ourselves, and not other people’s perceptions of us.
SHOW WAY, is about an 11-year old girl named Toshi Georgiana who has an important school project due in which she is to present a family heirloom and explain its history and importance. Problem is Toshi loses the beloved family heirloom just days before the project is due. As she searches for it, she is led by generations of women who came before her, from slaves who secretly sewed quilts to SHOW the WAY to freedom to civil rights marchers. Along the way, when Toshi loses hope of ever finding the heirloom, her friends offer to let her borrow their family heirlooms for the project. The play has a multi-cultural cast of actors and teaches the lesson that we all have the strength of our ancestors and friends to draw upon to get us through difficult times.

Through an encounter with a sick fish and his friends, three children discover a group of corporate executives who are callously insensitive to the fact that their company is polluting the river. Incensed, the kids decide to do something about it. The story grapples with important contemporary issues, yet is told with a unique blend of humorous and fanciful elements.
