Event

Honk! - presented by Art Center Theater
Music by George Stiles
Book and Lyrics by Anthony Drewe
Based on "The Ugly Duckling"
by Hans Christian Andersen
Coleman Auditorium
Gualala Arts Center

Honk! is a charming and challenging piece of theater that tells the story of Hans Christian Andersen's 'Ugly Duckling' in a way that will be enjoyable to children and with wit and innuendo that will appeal to adults. The music is reminiscent of 'old Broadway.' It is tuneful and jazzy, with lyrics that are 'laugh out loud' clever. In fact it won the 2000 Olivier Award in England - beating out such stiff competition as "The Lion King" and "Mama Mia!"

Lynne Atkins, director, says "We have created an ensemble cast for this show, meaning that all but three actors will play multiple roles - as well as take part in the chorus. This will be a bit different from our previous shows, allowing for the cast to stretch their creative wings!"

Honk! is also different from previous Art Center Theater productions since none of the characters on stage are human. "This is a fun opportunity for our local performers to build a character that has the traits of an animal or bird, but with the sense and emotions of a human being. Performers must find a believable medium between human and animal. For example; is Ida a duck first and then a mother? Or is it the other way around?" says Atkins. "We have assembled a wonderful cast. Our audiences are in for a real treat!"
