Honk

Honk

Based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling"

“Honk!” tells the story of an odd looking baby duck, Ugly, and his quest to find his mother. Soon after Ugly is born, he is seduced away by a wily Cat who wants to eat Ugly for dinner. Ugly manages to escape but has no idea how to return home. Along his way, he encounters a beautiful swan, Penny, tangled in a fishing line. After saving her, the two birds fall in love. However, she must return to her flock and fly south for the winter. Eventually, Ugly’s mother finds him frozen in snow. Luckily, her warm tears manage to thaw him out and he comes back to life – as a handsome swan! Soon, Ugly is reunited with Penny and two swans decide to live the rest of their days in the same pond as Ugly’s loyal mother

Sets

Accord Stage Works has worked extensively with its design team to come up with a concept of a basic and effective set design to offer a cost effective solution for hire. To be suitable for applications which don’t always follow the traditional proscenium arch style stage set up. The set design will work in the traditional designed stages and performance areas,  but offers the flexibility of use for newer multi purpose performance areas or even to be used in a round configuration as depicted in the following set guide and pictures. The set has been designed in a way that it can be transported very efficiently with all components breaking down into space saving size thus reducing vehicle size and cost of transportation.

The Jetty

This set piece is designed as a performance area with one end having a set of treads the size and width allows for multi performers to use the platform at once. The jetty is finished in a green weathered pond look.

Backdrop

Pond, Reed Beds and Bull Rushes The Honk backdrop is a 10 metre x 4 metre fully tabbed cloth. The back drop can be supplied with its own freestanding truss and stands to fly or just as a cloth. The rush beds and bull rushes are free standing props to be located around the pond

Eggs

The Honk eggs consist of four blue shelled eggs and one larger grey shelled egg for Honk. The eggs come complete with nests, pre formed on a mounting board and have a discrete opening for hatching.

Pond

The pond is two pieces of commercial grade flooring with a pond colouring applied to. The flooring fixes down with double sided tape to your performance area or can be joined and then just rolled out.
