Based on the story of the Ugly Duckling!

Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s story by George Stiles & Anthony Drewe Honk! The Musical is flying the nest after a critically-acclaimed, award nominated run in London. This musical egg-stravaganza is bursting with puppetry, magic, illusions… and water guns!

This heartwarming reimagining of The Ugly Duckling tells the story of Ugly, a plucky little bird who gets picked on by the other farmyard animals because he’s different. He embarks on an adventure across the marsh, meeting an array of characters who teach him that it takes all sorts to make a world, and that he is much more than just his looks.
