'Out there, someone's gonna love ya! Warts and all.' Join us for a cracking extravaganza of a show, marking Mayflower Theatre's tenth year of Summer Youth Projects, Honk! Spring has come to the farmyard in this fluffy adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fable, The Ugly Duckling. Drake, the Mallard duck, and his long-suffering partner, Ida, await the birth of a new brood, but the nest seems to contain one inordinately large egg this year. Sure enough, it cracks open to reveal a chick who looks nothing like his siblings and who makes a strange ‘honk’ sound instead of the expected quack. Join Ugly on a journey of self-discovery as he meets a whole barnyard of characters who teach him the valuable lesson that being different isn’t bad at all. A 'stonkingly brilliant' (Time Out Magazine) musical for all the family this Summer holiday.
