The ducklings (Leah Tolsma

Some birds quack and some birds honk, but that’s OK.

Four Season’s Musical Theatre presents Honk!. A revamped story stemming from the original tale The Ugly Duckling.

In Honk!, the outsider Ugly has been rejected by everyone but his mother. He doesn’t quack like the others, he honks. Throughout the production Ugly learns that it’s OK to be different.

“Not everyone looks the same as everyone else and we all need to accept that,” said Jon Scheer, the show’s director.

Ugly was hatched in the wrong nest and never really fit in.

“He was tormented by the other ducks and runs away,” Scheer said.

Ugly goes on a journey meeting other animals including gesse, a cat, a chicken and many other animals.

Eventually he transforms into a beautiful swan.

A cast of 25 people spanning from seven to 40 year olds, bring the story to life at Isabelle Reader Theatre.

“It’s in the nature of musicals that there is a lot of music and dancing,” Scheer said. “It’s a family show.”

Honk! is performed at Isabelle Reader Theatre, 1026 Goldstream Ave. Evening shows begin at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 16, 23 and 24. Matinees begin at 2 p.m. on Nov. 17 and 24.
