Honk! is an award-winning musical based on Hans Christian Anderson's "The Ugly Duckling," packed with wit and good family fun. Parents Drake and Ida are surprised that their new brood contains an ugly chick nothing like his siblings, who makes a strange honk sound instead of the expected quack! Ida loves her son despite his appearance and the ridiculing of the other farmyard fowl. This ridiculing drives Ugly into the eager arms of the Tom Cat, who tries to eat him. Ugly escapes by the skin of his teeth, but with night falling he becomes lost. Ida organizes a search from home and Ugly meets other interesting animal characters and various dangers as he tries to journey back to the farm and rejoin his mother. His adventures include falling in love with the beautiful swan Penny and continually having to evade the plans of Tom Cat who refuses to give up the thought of lunch. The show is suitable for kids through adults and is a wonderful and magical theater experience for the whole family.

You must try to remember, it's what's inside that matters, not what we look like

We won't be gone for long. What harm can it do?
