Families: Ferndale campers offer ‘Honk Jr.’ musical

Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling” is getting a musical makeover courtesy of the Ferndale Summer Youth Theatre Camp.

Showings of “Honk Jr.” will run at 7 p.m. July 16-18, with an additional 2 p.m. show on Sunday, July 18. Tickets will be available for $5 at the door of the Ferndale High School Auditorium at 5830 Golden Eagle Drive. Admission is free for kids younger than 5.

The camp features 60 local Ferndale students between ages 8 and 18 who were mentored by incoming seniors to Ferndale High School’s senior class.

A grant from the Ferndale Arts Commission allowed the camp to be free of charge.
