Folsom, CA, July 14, 2010: Honk! by Anthony Drewe, Music by George Stiles and Lyrics by Anthony Drewe, beat "The Lion King" out of the Olivier award (the British equivalent to the Tony Award)! Honk! is a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's classic story, "The Ugly Duckling" and features Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat-like score that kids everywhere will enjoy. The story wraps up with the wonderful message of how important it is to "just believe in yourself. Don't be left on the shelf feeling that all hope is dead and gone. And you may find, in your own way, you're a swan." This wonderful family entertainment, under the direction of award winning director Connie Mockenhaupt, with assistant directing by two time Elly award winning director Allen Schmeltz and musical direction by Susan Mason is performed by our Summer Musical Theatre Master Workshop students and promises to be great fun.
Honk! plays at 8:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays (plus a special opening performance and reception on Thursday July 1) and Sundays at 4:00 pm from July 24 through August 22. Tickets are $13-$17.
For reservations call (916) 353-1001.
