Honk Jr.

Honk! JR., a heartwarming retelling of the classic story of The Ugly Duckling, is a celebration of being different that is sure to delight with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable music.  Hilarious and deeply moving, Honk! JR. offers equal amounts of laughter and tears. Ugly looks quite a bit different from the other ducklings and the other animals on the farm tease Ugly cruelly.  This leads to 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 something rather special.
