“Honk!” tells the story of the Ugly Duckling, whose odd, gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors.

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. 

Roles include the Ugly Duckling, Cat, Ida, Grace, Ducklings, Froglettes, and many others. Cast members will help create their own costumes as CCT brings this barnyard, farm and journey to life. 

The production will be directed by Jeff Hall, with music direction by Erin Daigle. Rehearsals will begin with a light schedule in December.
