Honk! Jr., the story of the Ugly Duckling set to music, is this year’s presentation at the Homewood-Flossmoor High School Summer Theatre on July 16 and 17.
H-F drama teacher Jill Bonavia has been working with students ranging in age from second grade through seniors in high school for this musical version of the classic Ugly Duckling tale. The story line has Ugly, who looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters, 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.
Performances of this all-ages production are scheduled for 7 p.m. on July 16, and 2 and 7 p.m. on July 17, at H-F High School. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students, children and seniors and can be purchased beforehand at the H-F Campus Store or at the door.
