York Light Youth

27 May to 30 May 2015

Honk! is a musical comedy re-telling the Hans Christian Anderson story of The Ugly Ducking. This version, by George Styles and Anthony Drewe, incorporates the very modern message of tolerance which is so much in the news at the present time. With its wonderful score and storyline, it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical in 2000. The Daily Telegraph announced it as 'An exuberant smash hit' while Time Out described it as 'stonkingly brilliant'. We think it's an EGG-cellent show for all the family!
