Honk!

This witty and tuneful retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling” took the theatrical world by surprise when it won London’s 2000 Olivier Award as Best Musical (beating The Lion King and Mamma Mia!). MTWichita produced one of the first U.S. productions, and was selected to record the well-received original cast album. (Feel free to contact us if you need CDs for the cast or as merchandise). Although based on a children’s story, and perfectly suitable for audiences of all ages, the clever script and rich score are filled with nuances that will also keep adult audiences grinning and tapping their toes.
