Honk!, an award-winning musical comedy direct from Britain, is true family entertainment that offers a universal message about compassion and acceptance - for ducks and people too! British playwrights George Stiles and Anthony Drewe have crafted a witty, winning musical based on Hans Christian Anderson's classic tale, The Ugly Duckling. Described as a story "for anyone who has ever felt like honking when the rest of the world goes quack," the show is filled with memorable musical numbers, creative choreography and charming costumes. Winner of three awards for Best Musical, including the esteemed 2000 Laurence Olivier Award, Honk! has enjoyed immense popularity with audiences in the United Kingdom and on tour worldwide. Theater goers have embraced the wise, funny tale of the chick named Ugly who is driven from the barnyard for being different, but ultimately finds acceptance when his own special kind of beauty is revealed. An opening night reception follows the September 8 performance to give the audience a chance to meet the cast and crew.
