‘Honk!: ‘Ugly Duckling’ musical plays on Crescent Elk stage


Folks familiar with the Hans Christian Andersen tale “The Ugly Duckling” will already know Lighthouse Repertory Theatre’s spring musical “Honk!” but be prepared for a menagerie of characters.

“Honk!” features a cast of 30 ranging in age from 5 to senior citizens, said Director Dan McGlasson. There are frogs, fish, geese, quail, chickens and a very hungry cat. The main characters are the duck couple Ida and Drake and their seemingly homely duckling named Ugly.

“It’s a great little folktale and it tells a wonderful story about difference and acceptance,” McGlasson said. “That’s one of the wonderful things about theater; we get to tell those morality tales.”

“Honk!” opened Friday at Crescent Elk Auditorium. The show continues at 7:30 tonight (March 12) and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 13. Final shows are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 18, 19 and 20.
