The Ugly Duckling

When: Mon., April 29, 7 p.m. 2013

In American Sign Language, the word for "ugly" is signed by drawing the index finger under the nose, going from straight to hooked. A scrunched-up expression of distaste goes with it. Sadly, that's the world as the title character sees it in The Ugly Duckling in Imagination Celebration's 7 p.m. performance happening at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com). That's because this duckling is not only homely, but deaf, and the show will be performed both in ASL and spoken English by Sign Stage on Tour. All of which makes the eventual ending, though lovely, much deeper (and just as sweet — milk and cookies will follow the show). Tickets start at $9. — Edie Adelstein

Price: $9-17
