'Honk Jr.' to be presented Jan. 29-30

Thursday, January 13, 2011

On Saturday, Jan. 29 and Sunday, Jan. 30, the Cherokee Community Theatre will be presenting a show performed by young people.

The play is a musical, "Honk Jr.," and it is a contemporary re-telling of Hans Christian Anderson's classic story, 'The Ugly Duckling.'

Ugly, whose odd, gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors, is separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry Cat. Through his rollicking and harrowing journey, kids learn that being different is okay, and that somewhere out there, someone's gonna love you -- warts and all!

A special educational presentation of the play for the elementary school students will also be presented on Friday January 28.
