July 30, 2013
Tickets Now on Sale for HONK! JR., a family friendly musical
Playing at the Lake Superior Theatre
(Marquette, MI) – Tickets are now on sale for HONK! JR. playing at Lake Superior Theatre in Downtown Marquette starting on Thursday, August 1, 2013 and running August 1-4 & August 7-10, each evening at 7:30 p.m. HONK! Jr. is a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling. . The Lake Superior Youth Theatre production will feature a different cast each week and contains approximately 60 youth ages 3 to 18 led by Director, Moire Embley.
“HONK Jr.! is a great show for the entire family. The clever dialogue is humorous to all ages and the music is wonderful. The humor of the show and overall message of accepting oneself is touching and yet funny at the same time. In particular, when the Mother Duck Ida is constantly quacking about her husband Drake’s lack of parental guidance, and his response to staying at home with the kids happens, it’s a scene that is funny to anyone from age 3 to 93”, said Artistic Director Nikke Nason.
HONK! Jr. is a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling. It is the story of Ugly, whose odd, gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry Cat, Ugly must find his way home. Along his rollicking and harrowing journey he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious destiny, but also finds love and acceptance in all its forms. Since the boathouse is home to several families of ducklings during the summer this should be a delightfully ducky adventure!
The Lake Superior Youth Theatre’s mission is to empower young people to maximize their potential through performance arts training and the creation of outstanding theatrical and musical art. Previous productions in the past year have included “Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.” and “A Man Named Marquette”.
