“They are a joy to watch and a pleasure to listen to…it is a real crowd pleaser” – The Blurb Magazine

“Emily Svarnias as Ida, the mother duck, was outstanding…She was the most glamorous-looking duck I’ve ever seen” – Stage Whispers

“This was a fun watch for many reasons… a multitude of musical numbers, as well as the costume mashups of animal metaphors and Hollywood – both the glamour and the demure…”- Australian Arts Review

“With the vivacity of youth and the exuberance of dance the musical “HONK” was performed by a large, energetic group who were obviously enjoying every minute as we the audience were. All ages were engaged in the funny farmyard storyline. the fine singing performances and the most amazingly quick and well timed change of costumes. A great family show with laughs and excitement. In a word, fabulous!” – Aad and Joan Stegink
