Summer Theatre presents "Honk!, Jr."

Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School Summer Theatre will present Honk!, Jr., a musical version of the classic Ugly Duckling tale, next week. 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. The little duck 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.

Performances of this all-ages production are scheduled for Thursday, July 16, at 7 p.m.and Friday, July 17, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at H-F High School. Tickets ($7/adult, $5/student/child/senior) are available now at the school's Campus Store and will also be available at the door. The H-F production will be directed by Jill Bonavia, H-F drama teacher; features local students from Grades 2-12; and is offered under license by Music Theatre International.
