Honk! is a delightful and award-winning adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular children’s story The Ugly Duckling.
Five eggs were needed for the ducklings to hatch from; four smaller eggs for the “ordinary” ducklings and one big egg for Ugly. Before they could hatch, the actors had to sneak into the eggs from the back while the show was in progress. Lastly, the eggs had to be relatively easy to reassemble after each show. The eggs were created by stacking rings of two inch insulation foam and then filling, coating, sanding, and painting the surface.
