"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
