Jason Crespin, Director of ALT Academy (and hardest workin' man in AMA showbiz)

MORE ABOUT THE SHOW: Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself lost on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along his rollicking and harrowing journey, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out that being different is not a bad thing to be.

ALT Academy has assembled a terrific cast to bring this classic musical to life. HONK! features 72 talented Academy students and is being directed by Academy Director Jason Crespin. Academy Instructors Brandon Bellar and Beth Alexander serve as Music Director and Choreographer, respectively, with Scenic Design by Tana Roberson and Costume Design by Leigh Anne Crandall. Academy parents complete the produciton team with Chriselda Reyes as Assistant Director and Jamie Humphrey and Velvet Knight as Production Assistants.

Winner of multiple awards, including the 2000 Olivier Award for Best Musical (beating out The Lion King and Mamma Mia!), this touching musical with plenty of heart will captivate audiences of all ages. Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, HONK! will treat you to equal amounts of laughter and tears. You and your family won't want to miss it! Make your reservations today!
