Honk! Jr, based on the story of The Ugly Duckling, is coming to the Hunter these January holidays.
Ugly is born, of course, as a Duckling – but it soon becomes clear that he is no ordinary Duck. Mocked in the farmyard, pursued by the ever-hungry Cat, Ugly finds himself lost on a nearby marsh in the middle of a duck-shoot and embarks on an odyssey through the countryside, meeting a battery of colourful characters and finding himself, and love, along the way.
Experience the magic as Maitland Musical Society brings one of Hans Christian Anderson’s greatest stories ever told to life in a dazzling new production that will delight the whole family.
The show runs from Friday 5 January to Sunday 21 January, with performances at the Pro-Cathedral Maitland and the James Theatre Dungog. See the website for details.
