‘HONK!’ – Hillary Knox
A delightful musical (winner of London’s Olivier award for best new musical in 2000) based on Hans Christian Andersen’s traditional tale of “The Ugly Duckling.” Ugly, when hatched, makes a strange “honk” sound instead of the expected “quack!” This brings about ridicule and adventure with the surrounding barnyard animals. A mishap sends Ugly out and about resulting in a desperate search to be reunited with his mother, Ida. Overcoming numerous obstacles, including a hungry cat and duck hunters, Ugly not only finds his mother, but his true identity as anything but ugly. Join the GC theater and music departments in (re)discovering the adventures and heart-warming outcome of this hilarious and colorful musical story, directed by Doug Liechty Caskey and Debra Brubaker with choreography by Talashia Keim Yoder. Suitable for all ages.
