Honk! - One4Review

In this their Silver Jubilee Year on the Fringe Leicestershire Youth Arts are back with their normal programme of six shows that cover the whole gambit of genres and as always turn in quality performances. One of the performances on offer this year is the Stiles and Brown musical Honk! which is based on the Hans Christian Anderson story of the Ugly Duckling. The cast of nine perform the roles of ducks, swans, geese and a cat with the typical verve one has come to expect. They are well drilled and move around there confined space with ease. If there is any sight question to be asked then it comes to the singing. Although there are a numbers of excellent voices in the company, there are also a couple that do not make the grade, and all struggle at times to be heard over the rather too loud pianist. The set design, as normal, is immaculate. Who ever designs these years in, year out deserves a special thanks. This certainly a good way to start off your Fringe day! ***
