Since it first hatched in 1993, HONK! has winged its way around the world in more than 8,000 productions and in many languages. Winner of multiple awards, HONK! even won the prestigious “Best Musical” Olivier Award (Britain’s equivalent of the Tony Award)…beating out big shows like The Lion King and Mamma Mia!
Based on one of the world’s most beloved fables, this celebration of what makes us special is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit and toe-tapping score.
