HONK! is flying the nest after a critically-acclaimed, award-nominated run in London.
Described as “flawless”, “relentlessly excellent” and “an absolute joy to watch”, this musical egg-stravaganza is bursting with puppetry, magic and illusions… and water guns!
This heartwarming reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling tells the story of Ugly, a plucky little bird who gets picked on by the other farmyard animals because he’s different.
Pushed out of the flock, he embarks on an adventure across the marsh, meeting an array of characters who teach him that it takes all sorts to make a world, and that he is much more than just his fowl looks.
Surprising everyone – including its own composers – by pipping The Lion King and Mamma Mia to the post to win the 2000 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, HONK! has gone on to receive over 8,000 productions around the world.
HONK! is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face – no matter how fowl that smile may be!
HONK! is produced by Dot By Dot Productions, directed by Andy Room, with Oli Rew as musical director, and choreography by Lily Howkins.
