The Odessa-Montour production of Honk! completed its two-day run Saturday in the school’s Fetter-Brown Auditorium with matinee and evening performances.
The musical, sponsored by the O-M Fine Arts Boosters and featuring a wide age-range of O-M students, was under the direction of Holly Campbell, Jennifer Kraemer and Ian MacDonald.
Honk! tells the story of Ugly (portrayed by John Coates), a duckling who doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of the duckyard gang, led by Maureen (Bronwyn Stermer), Henrietta (Shania Austin), the Turkey (Garrett Allen), Grace (Kaelyn Arnold), and the other poultry (Marisa Alton, Taylor Alton, Samantha Dudgeon, Grace Edger, Tassia Garrison, and Alyssa Lindsley).
Ugly’s mother, Ida (Hannah Rosier), loves him unconditionally, telling him to “Hold your head up high,” but after a lot of bullying from the other poultry, including his own father and siblings (Noah Brewster, Mackenzie Cannon, Ben Campbell, Victoria Brewster, and Lillian Halpin), Ugly decides to have lunch with the Cat (Rhys Stermer), the play’s villain.
