On Thursday, April 4 the fifth grade students at Northvail gave two performances of the award-winning musical, “Honk! Jr.” The musical is a warm and witty retelling of the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale “The Ugly Duckling”, with an uplifting message that everyone is deserving of kindness and respect, no matter what they may look like.The many hours and hard work during rehearsals paid off. It was a remarkable performance. The show was well prepared and the production crew consisting of assisting directors, Kathy Serrao, Tara DeGeorge, and director Jim Caulfield, certainly new how to get the best out of the cast yet keep the fun aspect as well. There was plenty of talent on stage and everyone deserves congratulations on their individual performances, from cast to crew. All concerned should be very proud to have achieved so much in a relatively short time. Mr. Caulfield told the students, “You have met and exceeded our expectations! Together, we made our dream of Honk! Jr. come true!
