Honk! JR.

13-15 August 2010 @ Banyule Theatre



Honk! JR. is a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story, “The Ugly Duckling” and follows the story of an odd looking baby duck, Ugly, and his quest to find his mother.
The musical is set in the English countryside and features a duckling who discovers his inner beauty when he becomes a swan, his tearful mother Ida, a drake who “ducks” his fatherly responsibilities, a gaggle of comical geese, a sly, French tomcat who wants to befriend Ugly so he can eat him, a wisecracking bullfrog, and other barnyard creatures, together with a great many “fowl” puns.
With the main themes of tolerance, prejudice and sibling rivalry, HONK! Jr. is a timeless tale of personal transformation and of an outsider searching for somewhere to belong.
