Can Do Duck: The Musical Fun for the Whole Family!

I was invited to attend Can Do Duck: The Musical and was given complementary tickets. Regardless, I only recommend products, shows or services I use personally and believe will be a good fit for my readers. All opinions are 100% my own.


I was so excited to attend Can Do Duck: The Musical with my daughter, sister and niece! It was so exciting to take them into the city to watch a live show. My daughter has gone to a couple of short live shows and loved them so I knew she would love Can Do Duck: The Musical.


Can Do Duck is a really cute and motivational musical for kids and families. Their big message is believing in yourself by saying "I can". The musical was based on the successful children's book series "The Can Do Duck". It is a story that follows two families, a human one and a duck one as they learn to try new things and work as a team to accomplish them. 

I have seen my daughter countless times tell me "I can't do it!" and I always reply "Yes you can! Just try again." I see that big smile on her face when she finally accomplishes what she wanted to do. Seeing this musical is a great way for kids to learn that they can do what they wish to do just by saying "I can".


There were fun crafts for the kids to do right before the show which was great for us since we got there early to pick up our tickets. The staff were so sweet and helped my daughter and niece create a duck in a pond with markers, crayons, glue sticks and paper plates.


I was a little bit apprehensive when we got to our seats because I didn't know if my daughter would sit still for the hour long musical but she did! She was so into the actors and the cute duck costumes they wore. She yelled out when they asked the kids for input and flapped her arms and danced along when she got cued to. I love how interactive and engaging the show was for the kids. I have to admit that as an adult I was just as entertained as the kids.







When the show was over the kids got to jump on stage and "swim", "fly" and "walk" like a duck with the actors. There was also a Q & A where the kids and adults got to learn more about the show and the background of how it became to be. The director of the musical is Arielle which is the daughter of the author of the Can Do Duck Book Series. Ducktor Morty M.D., the author explained how he wrote the book when Arielle was just 8 and together with her sisters they illustrated the book at that young age. 

My daughter who is 2 1/2 and my niece who is 3 loved the show! The musical is recommended for ages 3 - 11 but my sister and I both enjoyed it as well so I feel that it is great for all ages.


The Musical will begin showing on February 9 at:

CULTURE PROJECT
Lynn Redgrave Theater
45 Bleecker Street
New York, NY 10012

  2. That sounds like a great little show for preschoolers. My kids would have dug that when they were smaller.

  3. Looks like a great book for kids. Sometimes kids lack the confidence they need to succeed. This would surely help them see how valuable they are in such a cute story.
