This delightful adaptation of one of the most beloved fables of all time is a quackingly good time.

Since it first hatched in 1993 Stiles & Drewe’s musical Honk! has winged its way around the world in over 8000 productions and in many different languages. Winner of multiple awards, including the 2000 Olivier Award for Best Musical, this heart-warming celebration of being different is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit and memorable score.

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 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.

Perfect for casts of all sizes and budgets small or large, Honk! is a popular family-friendly pick. The musical is also ideal for younger actors to showcase their talents. With its bouncing score and universal story, the touching musical with plenty of heart will captivate audiences.
