The Pennsylvania Yankee Theatre Co. Youth Theatre Summer Camp will present “Honk! JR.” July 28, 29 and 30 at Penn Yan Academy.

About 80 youngsters from the community have attended the camp operated by members of PYTCo. to prepare for the musical adapted for young performers. With a score by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Mary Poppins), Honk! JR. is a heartwarming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score.

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 on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.

The curtain goes up on Honk! JR. at 7:30 p.m. July 28, 29 and 30 in the Penn Yan Academy Auditorium. Tickets are $8 at the door.
