Honk!...for a good time!

Kids, Fun, Tosans

Have you and your kids hit the mid-summer hum-drums? Need something to do but have very little cash to spend? This coming weekend, head over to Divine Savior Holy Angels High School (DSHA) for their Community Theatre Works Production of Honk! The Musical Tale of the Ugly Duckling.

Watch the beloved Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale come to life on stage. Travel along side Ugly on his feather-flying adventure to find his way back home. Though the play finds him entangled with humorous gaggles of geese, tenacious tomcats, and boisterous bullfrogs; it is beautifully woven with the important theme of acceptance and love.

This fun-filled “free-range” family show features performers young and old (not just DSHA students!) from Wauwatosa and throughout the Milwaukee area.

Performances are Friday, July 17th at 7pm, Saturday July 18th at 2pm and 7pm and again on Sunday July 19th at 2pm. All performances are at the DSHA Robert and Marie Hansen Family Fine Arts Theatre – 4257 N. 100th Street in Milwaukee. (Just outside of Wauwatosa.)

Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for children under 12 and $5 for DSHA students.
