Honk! @ 4 County Players

As part of their 43rd Season, Four County Players is proud to present HONK! A MUSICAL TALE OF THE UGLY DUCKLING, with music by George Stiles and book & lyrics by Anthony Drewe, based on “The Ugly Duckling” by Hans Christian Andersen.

This Christmas, join us for a fun, musical adventure, all about love! Ugly looks very different from his duckling brothers and sisters, and 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 adventure of self-discovery. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be. Filled with wonderful characters and an enchanting score, HONK! is the perfect holiday outing for the entire family.

HONK! opens November 20, and runs weekends through December 13 on the Mainstage. Fridays & Saturdays at 8PM, and Sunday matinees at 2:30PM. Tickets are $16 for adults, $15 for seniors & students, and $14 for children 12 & under. All Friday performances are half-price (half of a regular adult ticket). Note: there will be no performance on Friday, November 27. Reservations are highly recommended!

For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the Box Office at 540-832-5355, visit our new website at, or our Facebook page at
