Honk!is a full-length musical adaptation of one of the most beloved fables of all time, Hans Christian Anderson’s The Ugly Duckling. A baby swan named “Ugly” looks quite a bit different from his duckling siblings, a fact not lost on the other barnyard animals. Follow Ugly on his journey of self-discovery in a tale that also incorporates a message of tolerance. Honk! is written for a broader audience and has more songs that the well-known junior version, which is for younger audiences. Music by George Stiles. Lyrics and book by Anthony Drewe.
