Honk! Jr. – Franke Center Children’s Theater
The Franke Center Children’s Theater will present Honk! Jr. on Thursday, October 10 through Saturday, October 12 at 7 pm and on Sunday, October 13 at 2:30 pm. This award-winning musical adaptation of the beloved fable The Ugly Duckling is a heartwarming celebration of what makes us special. The cast is made up from 65 kindergarten through fifth graders. 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 characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $17 at the door.
