The Sissy Duckling began as a children’s book, written by Harvey Fierstein, the celebrated theatre and film actor, and playwright. It was then adapted into an award-winning HBO cartoon television series for children. It has now been adapted into a musical theatre production for elementary-aged children by Nicola Elson, a Theatre for Young Audiences Specialist at the University of Lethbridge.

Elmer, The Sissy Duckling, is a happy, zany fellow that walks to the beat of his own drum. Sometimes he struggles to fit in though. When the other ducklings play baseball, he’d prefer to bake a cake. Or maybe he’d rather put on a puppet show instead of building a fort. He loves to do these things, but it can get a bit lonely when you’re often playing alone. It can be even lonelier if someone calls you a sissy… But Elmer is tough and caring and smart, and he’s about to teach his family, and his entire flock, that being different is A-Okay!
