We have all heard the term "ugly duckling" before. Perhaps you went through an "ugly duckling" stage when you were in middle school; you wore glasses and had frizzy hair and your face looked like a pepperoni pizza... or maybe that was just me? Regardless if you shared the same experience of puberty as me, we can all relate in one way or another to feeling like the odd one out, or the looming feeling that we just don't fit in. The story of, The Ugly Duckling was written by the beloved Danish poet and author, Hans Christian Andersen in 1844. He has written such classics as, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Pea and The Emperor's New Clothes. This fairy tale is an exploration of self transformation and learning to be happy with who you are despite what others may say or think of you.
In our season's final production, we put on a fun filled adventure where not everyone is who they seem and sometimes we find that we have more courage in us than we ever realized. Directed by the talented Ken Stevens, the award wining musical, Honk is based on the charming tale, The Ugly Duckling. Join us for catchy songs, sharp wit and a lesson that all of us need a reminder of once in a while, whether we're young or old. Honk is a production that you won't wanna miss!
