A funny and heart-warming musical for all ages
Following our sell out production of Elf Jr last Christmas, Encore Junior Theatre’s latest production is the witty, charming, and deeply moving Honk! JR, based on the famous story of The Ugly Duckling.
Ugly looks quite a bit different from his duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling rather ‘foul’ about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat.
Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.
Adapted from the full length show, Honk! with book and score by the award winning George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Mary Poppins, Betty Blue Eyes, Half a Sixpence) this heartwarming celebration of being different is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe www.mtishows.co.uk
