“Honk! Jr.” is the first show of the Catoosa Colonnade’s 2022 theatre season, and is this season’s only Youth Theatre production.
It is a musical that is loosely based on the classic story of “The Ugly Duckling.”
Ugly looks a bit different from his duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice his different appearance and give him constant grief over it, despite his mother’s protective flapping.
Feeling down about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat.
Throughout his journey, Ugly comes across a plethora of unique characters who, one-by-one, teach Ugly that being different isn’t actually bad at all.
‘Honk! Jr.” has a run-time of about 60 minutes, and is cast with actors ranging from 16 years old down to 9 years old.
