Ugly Duckling takes a musical turn
DeKALB – The CCT production of “Honk!” features a down-in-the-mouth swan, dozens of ducks, a couple of touchy turkeys and a barnyard full of other fowl putting a musical spin on the classic tale of the Ugly Duckling.
The show will be presented March 8-10 and 15-17 at the O’Connell Theater on the campus of Northern Illinois University.
The production, a 2000 import from England that won rave reviews, reimagines the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale through the eyes of the misunderstood swan, Ugly, played by Clifton Hansen, who is scorned by all but his loving mother, Ida (Juli Breidenbach). Even his father, Drake (Steve Younker) considers Ugly an embarrassment to the flock.
