The Springfield Little Theatre Education Department is excited to present HONK!, JR. in its 2023-2024 Education Series! This delightful adaptation of the beloved fable and the award-winning musical is a heartwarming celebration of what makes us special.

Adapted for young performers, and with a score by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Mary Poppins), HONK!, JR. is a heartwarming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score.  Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, HONK!, JR. will treat your audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears.
