This delightful adaptation of one of the most beloved fables of all time is a quackingly good time. (60 Minute Version for Young Performers)
Since it first hatched in 1993 Honk! has winged its way around the world in over 8000 productions and in many different languages. Adapted for young performers, and with a score by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Mary Poppins), Honk! JR. is a heart-warming celebration of being different that 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.
Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, Honk! JR. will treat your audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears. Featuring a flexible cast size, Honk! JR. can be performed with simple sets and costumes. No feathers or fur necessary! Its charm, humor, and message of tolerance is perfect for any audience.
