Theatre Department to present “Ugly Duckling” adaptation, “Honk!”

An ugly duckling, a bold bullfrog, a cunning cat, and many feathered friends will be taking the stage at SUNY Oneonta this spring for a wacky and wild production of “Honk!” The musical is an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known tale of the Ugly Duckling. Anthony Drewe’s book and lyrics with musical composition by George Stiles has created a youthful theatre experience — not just for children — but for all ages. As one duckling deals with being different on the farm, the story carries a special message of tolerance and acceptance.

Come join the fun at the Goodrich Theatre in the Fine Arts Building at SUNY Oneonta. The show is being produced by The SUNY Oneonta Theatre Department with the Mask and Hammer Theatre Club. Performances are April 18, 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m., along with a 2 p.m. matinee on April 21.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at Hunt Union or at the theater box office one hour before the show. Tickets are free with a SUNY Oneonta student ID, or $10 for adults and $5 for children under the age of twelve for general admission.
