Honk!, a contemporary award-winning musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's classic
fairy tale The Ugly Duckling, is funny, a fast, and feathery.  Soon after Ugly, an odd looking baby
duck, is born he is seduced away by a wily Cat who is looking for dinner.  Eventually, Ugly
manages to escape but has no idea how to return home.  In his quest to reunite with his
mother, Ugly encounters all manner of domesticated and wild critters who help him to learn
valuable lessons about fitting in, being proud of who he is, and the importance of love and
family.  This family-friendly show is appropriate for kids of all ages and the kid in all of us.  Treat
a young person in your life to an evening of theatrical joy!
