ECCT Presents: "Honk!"

Mar 1, 2013 7:30pm

The State Theatre, 316 Eau Claire St, Eau Claire, WI 54703
The Eau Claire Children’s Theatre will present HONK! March 1-3 at the State Theatre in downtown Eau Claire.

Even as an egg before he hatched, Ugly’s odd, gawky looks incited disdain and prejudice from his family and neighbors. When he is unexpectedly separated from the farm, Ugly must find his way home, all while being pursued by a hungry Cat. 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. This musical version of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fable “The Ugly Duckling” won the 2000 Olivier Award (the British equivalent of the Tony® Award) for Best New Musical.

Performances are scheduled for Friday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and Sunday, March 3, at 1:30 p.m. Reserved seating tickets are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors, $12 for students, and $8 for youth ages 12 and under.

Theatre-goers can add to their experience by attending “Honk’s Spring Fling” on Saturday, March 2, at Noon. Those attending will celebrate spring with crafts, games, and treats with Ugly and the cast of HONK! before the show. Tickets are $5.00 per person (does not include show tickets) and advance registrations are required.

HONK! is sponsored in part by the Eau Claire Regional Arts Center and WQOW News 18.
