Middle school presents popular musical

November 20, 2013

MILFORD, PA — Delaware Valley Middle School will perform “HONK: A Musical Tale of The Ugly Duckling,” the award-winning and critically acclaimed musical by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The performances will be November 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. and November 24 at 2 p.m. in the Delaware Valley High School auditorium.

In 1993, George Stiles and Anthony Drewe’s musical was originally titled “The Ugly Duckling” or “The Aesthetically-Challenged Farmyard Fowl,” the show was directed by Steven Dexter and designed by Francis O’Connor. In 1997 Julia McKenzie came on board as director and persuaded Sir Alan Ayckbourn to take the show at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough for Christmas. Together with designer Peter McKintosh and choreographer Aletta Collins, McKenzie created a blue print for the show, under its new title “HONK!”
