J/J Presents "Honk! Jr."


Jordan/Jackson Elementary School presents a delightful adaptation of The Ugly Duckling, "Honk! Jr." HONK! JR. is a heart-warming celebration of being different. Ugly does not look the same as his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on 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 not a bad thing to be.

 

Come join us on April 10th at 7pm and April 11th at 1pm and 7pm in the Mansfield High School auditorium. Tickets will be on sale in the lobby before each performance for $5. Come join us for a quackingly good time.
