One of the great things about living in a city like Dalton, an area that combines both small town charm and the ID-100244019economic prowess of a larger city, is that there are plenty of things to do. The Artistic Civic Theatre puts on a variety of fabulous performances every year, which may not be as huge as a professional theatre, but are still charming nonetheless.

This week in September, they’re proud to be putting on the musical Honk!, a show that’s certain to please the whole family.

This musical is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling.”  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 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 show is being performed on September 17th at 7 pm, 18th at 7 pm, and 19th at 11 am.
