'Ducktastic' Show to Go On, Despite Fowl-Play When you put an animal on stage, the animal usually steals the show. In this case however, somebody stole the animal. It was a duck, named Daphne, which played a featured role in a London theater comedy called Ducktastic. Daphne performed tricks and bowed to the audience. But then somebody stole the duck -- possibly using a box that was later found, empty, in London's Covent Garden. Fortunately, an understudy duck is waiting in the wings.
