The Young Entertainers on Stage present Honk! Junior

Release Date: 2/12/2010. Expired: 3/21/2010

Honk! Junior is theatre for children BY children. This contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story, “The Ugly Duckling,” has a score that kids and adults will both enjoy.

Aimed primarily at children and their parents, this musical is set in the countryside. The story features Ugly, a duckling who discovers his inner beauty when he becomes a swan, his tearful mother Ida, Drake who "ducks" his fatherly responsibilities, a gaggle of comical geese, a sly, French cat who wants to befriend Ugly in order to eat him, a wisecracking bullfrog, and other zany barnyard creatures. Through watching this fun filled musical the audience will be reminded of the tolerant message, “Don’t judge a book by its cover!”
