Stop by and HONK! at Gaglardi Academy


Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Academy proudly presents, HONK! JR. performed live, April 26 to 29, with evening showings at 7:00 p.m. and a Saturday matinee at 2:30 p.m.

Join in the fun of this witty yet moving production featuring the acting talents of 20 students. HONK! JR. is the story of Ugly, an awkward duckling whose appearance incites judgement from his family and neighbours.

Separated from his home on the farm by an alluring and hungry cat, Ugly must face many challenges as he journeys back to the pond he was born in.

Along the way he not only discovers his true beauty, but also finds friendship and acceptance in all its forms.

This musical retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of The Ugly Duckling will charm audiences with its wit, toe-tapping songs and heart-warming message.

With a run time of 75 minutes, this family-friendly show is sure to delight and mystify even the smallest of audience members.

Tickets are $10 and are available at the Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Academy Office (1475 Noel Ave. in Comox) or by calling 250-339-1200.
