Rising Stars Workshop

Honk! JR. is a heartwarming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score.  Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, Honk! JR. will treat your audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears.Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.

Directed and choreographed by Emily Jo Seminoff. Music Direction by Joshua Wheeler.

Character Breakdown

Ducklings: Beaky, Fluff, Billy, Downy are Ugly's siblings. They

are among the "popular" ones in the duck yard who enjoy making Ugly feel left out.


Ugly: The ugly ducking and the main character of HONK! JR. Innocent, easily confused

and very impressionable, Ugly doesn't understand why it is wrong being different.


Ida: Ugly's mom. Ida is extremely protective of her son and committed to his safety.


Drake: Ida's husband. Drake is a sarcastic character. He is the stereotypical sitcom father often shirking his parental duties.


Maureen: A moorhen and Ida's best friend. Maureen genuinely loves Ida, but she can't

resist a bit of good gossip.


The Cat: The sly, cunning villain of the show. All of the other animals are deathly afraid

of him. He is manipulative, cunning, witty and above all, HUNGRY.


Greylag: A somewhat pompous goose and washed-up British military type.


Dot: A motherly type, she is genuinely concerned with helping Ugly find his mother.


The Bullfrog: A laidback, self confident frog with whom Ugly comes into contact in the

second half of the show.


Penny: The young, beautiful swan that Ugly saves from a tangled fishing net. She is able

to see beyond Ugly's looks and she loves him for who he is.


Father Swan:  Penny's father. Helps to console Ida when she thinks her son has dies, and offers to take Ugly with them when they migrate.


Mother Swan:  Penny's mother. Helps to console Ida when she thinks her son has dies, and offers to take Ugly with them when they migrate.


Grace: The most distinguished duck on the lake. Very aristocratic, she is considered the

queen of the duck yard. All of the other animals look up to Grace and respect her.


The Turkey: The headmaster of the ducklings' school. The Turkey is a bit snobbish and

joins in the fun of teasing Ugly. There is of course one word that send shivers down his



Henrietta: A hen and another of Maureen's friends. Henrietta and Maureen gossip about

the goings on in the duck yard. She takes great pleasure in making fun of Ugly.


Jay Bird: An investigative reporter. A very "in your face" bird, all she/he cares about is

getting a good story.


Ensemble: The remaining actors in the company play a number of different roles.

Throughout the action of the play they take on roles as barn yard animals, geese, children

at play, and froglets
