Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s, The Ugly Duckling, Honk Jr tells the story of an odd looking baby duck.
Ugly looks quite a bit different from his brothers and sisters. The other animals are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling very sorry for himself, Ugly then goes on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry cat!
Along the way Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not bad at all!
Ugly Innocent, easily confused and very impressionable (M/F)
Ida Ugly’s mother, very protective of her son. (F)
Drake Ugly’s father - very sarcastic character. (M)
The Ducklings 4 ducklings, Ugly’s brother / sisters (M/F)
Maureen a moorhen, Ida’s best friend (F)
The Cat Sly, cunning villain. All other animals are afraid of the cat (M/F)
Greylag A pompous Goose. A washed up British military type. (M)
Dot Greylag’s wife. Wants to help Ugly find his mother. (F)
Bullfrog A laid back, self-confident frog. (M)
Penny A beautiful swan who Ugly rescues from a tangled fishing net. (F)
There are a number of other roles which involve a small amount of solo singing and dialogue. As well as dancing and singing chorus. These characters, together with the above will be explained at the first workshop.
If you could let me know if you plan to come along so I have an idea of numbers that would be much appreciated.
