. Performances will be at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4. Tickets

A playful, musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling," Honk! Jr. tells the story of Ugly (Andrew Lutz '20), who looks nothing like the rest of his duckling brothers and sisters. Despite reassurance from his mother Ida (Caitlyn Matthews '20) that it's alright to be different, Ugly leaves home in despair. On a journey across the countryside, in which he avoids being eaten by a crafty cat (Matthew Steinbaum '20), Ugly learns to accept himself "Warts and All."
The performances are the culmination of a Middle School unit in which students work with faculty members Amy Southerland (direction), David Southerland (musical direction), Linda Katz (choreography) and Shannon Ludlum (producer) and parents Jaime Goodrich, P '27, '30 (costumes) and Karolyn Stephenson, P '18 (scenery).
