Duckie Can’t Swim

Written & Directed by: Benjamin Ho

Date: 31 October – 2 November 2007
Venue: Asian Civilisations Museum, Ngee Ann Auditorium


Duckie is upset that he cannot swim no matter how hard he tries. The rubber ring makes him float, the big boggles make him sink while the brand new flippers just make his feet heavy! Who can help Duckie become a duck that can swim?

Look out for the answer in this interactive puppet show featuring lovely hand-made puppets and human actors set within a cosy farm.

This show aims to teach children the importance of friendship and co-operation. Children will also be taught the values of care, being helpful and perseverance as they journey together with Duckie in his attempt to swim like a true duck!
