NODA Review: Honk!
Kidderminster Operatic & Dramatic Society Youth Section
Director: Julian Richards
Assistant Director: Callum McArthur
Musical Director: Sue Preece
Choreographers: Wendy Richards and Hannah McCormack
Venue: Stourport Civic Centre
The saying goes ‘never work with children or animals’ but what happens when the show calls for children and animals? The show is ‘Honk’, the story of the ugly duckling. A nightmare for the wardrobe department with ducklings, geese, hens, cats, frogs, turkeys, swans, etc. Its amazing how the mind associates a yellow tee-shirt, black trousers and a baseball cap with a orange peak as a young duckling. The young people portrayed their characters well. Full marks to Paul Taylor-Mill as Ugly and Russell Tolly as the cat. A small orchestra with some ex-youth members. Well done KODYS.
