With a score by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Mary Poppins), HONK! JR. is a hearwarming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm, and memorable score. It is witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving.
Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling 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 creatures and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.
