Honk! is a musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story 'The Ugly Duckling' incorporating a message of tolerance. The book and lyrics are by Anthony Drewe and music is by George Stiles (of the British songwriting duo Stiles and Drewe). The musical is set in the countryside and features Ugly – a cygnet who is mistaken as an ugly duckling upon falling into his mother's nest and is rejected by everyone but Ida (his mother), a sly tomcat who only befriends him out of hunger, and several other barnyard characters. The West End production won the 2000 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical.
Dean Verbeck has assembled another excellent cast to bring this heart warming tale to life.
