About Honk! JR.

“Honk!” by George Stiles (composer) and Anthony Drewe (books and lyrics) was selected as the 2000 Olivier award’s “Best New Musical.” A contemporary comic adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling,” “Honk! JR.” follows the character Ugly, whose odd, gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry cat, Ugly must find his way home, with only his loving mother, Ida, searching for him. Along his harrowing yet hilarious journey he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious destiny, but also finds love and acceptance in all its forms. The musical is so inspirational in its message of acceptance and tolerance that the Ministry of Education in Israel has made it compulsory viewing for school children.
