"Honk!"
A musical
Book and lyrics by Anthony Drewe
Music by George Stiles
Based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling"

Directed and Choreographed by Sarah Elaine Bailey
Assistant Director — Dane C.T. Leasure
Musical Direction by Sharon Dobbins Alberson

"Honk!" tells the story of a young duckling named Ugly, whose odd, gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry Cat, Ugly must find his way home. Along his rollicking and harrowing journey he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious destiny, but also finds love and acceptance in all its forms.

Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, "Honk!" will treat audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears. Its charm, humor and message of tolerance make it perfect for a family audience…and every audience!

Debuting in London during the same season that featured the appearance of "The Lion King," the musical "Honk!" became a stand-out by winning the 2000 Olivier Award (the British equivalent of the Tony Award) for Best New Musical.
