This fall, Trevecca Nazarene University presents the exuberant, high-energy family musical, HONK!—winner of the prestigious Olivier Award (the British equivalent to Broadway’s Tony Award for Best Musical). From the show-stopping opening song, “A Poultry Tale,” this enchanting comedy lovingly brings to life the familiar tale of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling in a way that identifies with people of all ages.
Trevecca’s production of HONK!—which will incorporate visual styling from the 1950s—is the story of Ugly, whose odd, gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his barnyard family and neighbors. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry Cat, Ugly must find his way home. Along his rollicking, harrowing journey, he not only discovers his true beauty, but also finds love and acceptance.
Performances run October 31 and November 1, 2, 7, 8, and 9. All evening performances begin at 7:00 PM. There will also be a special afternoon matinee performance at 3:00 PM on Saturday, November 9. Each performance will be presented in the newly renovated Benson Theatre in McClurkan Hall on the campus of Trevecca.
