HIPPODROME Youth Theatre’s seasonal story HONK is nearly ready to hit the stage, and tickets are now on sale.

It is a modern re-telling of the Hans Christian Anderson’s classic The Ugly Duckling, where a gaggle of farmyard characters join the naïve, but loveable Ugly in his rites-of-passage journey from misrepresented duckling to elegant swan.

Smattered with a barrage of fantastic characters and wonderful musical numbers, HONK is a show for all the family and looks set to be real seasonal treat.

Performed by the young cast under the experienced production team of Helen Clarkson, Emily Rawlinson and Alex Townend, HONK runs at the Hippodrome, Halifax Road, Todmorden, from November 29 to December 3.
