HONK! at the Abbey Theatre, St Albans

FAMILY favourite and Olivier award-winning musical HONK! is being performed by St Albans Youth Music Theatre at the Abbey Theatre next week.

Based on Hans Christian Anderson’s story of The Ugly Duckling, it is about an odd-looking duckling who sets out on a quest to find his mum. Along the way he meets some great characters, falls in love and finds out who he really is. Director Beccy Ashton said: “The whole family will love this show. But don’t just take my word for it – several real-life mothers, fathers, sons and daughters are involved in the production whether on stage, assisting back-stage or working front of house.”

The production runs from next Thursday, April 12, until Saturday, April 14, at 8pm on the main stage of the Abbey Theatre with a 3pm matinee on the Saturday.

Tickets are available from the box office on 01727 857861 or www.abbeytheatre.org.uk
