Lucky Duck (formerly: Everything’s Ducky) is a wacky adaptation of “The Ugly Duckling” which takes place in a kingdom where vegetarianism is the law and ducks rule. Serena, the ugliest duck in the barnyard, yearns to leave her sorry life where she is totally unappreciated and become a great singing diva. To this end, when Serena feels depressed, she conjures up her imaginary friend, the greatest diva of all time, Leda Cygnet. Leda advises her that she has a “special destiny” but only she can find it.But the road to superstardom is bumpy. Along the way Serena is befriended by a Wolf, the Coyote Brothers, Galinda (the most fashionable Goose in New Duck City), Armand Dillo (the world’s most fashionable photographer) and many other delightful and conniving characters. She even meets Crown Prince Drake, but she doesn’t fall for his playboy ways like any ordinary duck in the kingdom would.With Leda’s encouragement and with the help of Galinda’s top modeling agency “Chick,” Serena becomes the swan she always knew she could be. But fame is fleeting and Serena’s fame lasts about the standard ten minutes.

Down on her luck but still full of pluck, Serena continues to search for her special destiny, and is encouraged to enter the Silver Jubilee Songbird Contest. Meanwhile, Drake, realizing his love for the real “ugly duck” inside the beautiful swan, pursues Serena, who questions his motives and is more likely to trust Wolf, who has helped her and guided her since she left the barnyard. But Wolf is fighting the urge to start a carnivore revolution in rebellion against the vegetarian rules of the land… and the first morsel of meat he enjoys just might be Serena!

Is the Silver Jubilee Songbird contest a huge success? Does Serena find her special destiny? Does everyone live happily ever after? Well, we don’t want to give everything away… but we will tell you that EVERYTHING’S DUCKY!
