'Honk!' celebrates difference at Huron Playhouse
Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved tale about the struggles of being different is brought to life in the musical “Honk!” this week at the Huron Playhouse. “Honk!” will be performed Tuesday-Saturday (July 15-19).
“A marvelously funny, frequently touching and constantly magical theatre piece, ‘Honk!’ is sure to have a long and lustrous life,” writes one critic of the whimsical adaptation of “The Ugly Duckling.”
The cast, including a corps of area youngsters, portrays a barnyard of characters, from geese and ducks to frogs and a cat in the family-friendly show about tolerance.
Curtain time is 8 p.m. nightly. Ticket prices for all Huron Playhouse productions are $12 for students and senior citizens, $14 for other adults and $9 for children under 12. For reservations and further information, call the playhouse at 419-433-4744. The box office at McCormick School, 325 Ohio St., is open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
