Summary:

Three fun shows at a charming new venue! Thanks to our wonderful audiences. Honk! Jr. was a heartwarming celebration of being different that delighted audiences with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score. A musical version of the famous tale of the Ugly Duckling who (spoiler alert …………….. ) is really a swan! The story: “Ugly” looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.
