The Tal­is­man Play­ers present ‘Honk!’

The Boyertown Area Times - - ENTERTAINMENT - From The Tal­is­man Play­ers

The Tal­is­man Play­ers are back with their “end of the sum­mer mu­si­cal” and if you missed “Fid­dler on the Roof” in 2016, or “How to Suc­ceed in Busi­ness Without Re­ally Try­ing” in 2017; well you’re in time to see ‘HONK!”

This is the won­der­fully en­ter­tain­ing, fun for the en­tire fam­ily, mu­si­cal story of the ugly duck­ling.

The di­rec­tor, Chris­tine Nar­done Storch, has once again se­lected a spec­tac­u­lar cast with Kutztown’s Crede Cooper in the ti­tle role. Play­ing his mother Ida will be Shanna Gates, a new­comer to the Tal­is­man Play­ers but not to many com­mu­nity theatre au­di­ences. Gates is a grad­u­ate of the renowned Wag­ner Col­lege of Staten Is­land and her per­for­mance alone is worth the ticket price. Brock Rabenold, the lead from ”How to Suc­ceed” is back as the hys­ter­i­cally funny Drake (Ugly’s Dad) with Matt Lu­pac­ck­ino as the dreaded vil­lain­ous “Cat” and so many more sur­prises.

In four short years the Tal­is­man Play­ers have in­deed put their stamp on the Kutztown com­mu­nity and with the sup­port of Kutztown Univer­sity, now their home and part­ner, is rapidly be­com­ing the “talk” of in­formed theatre go­ers.

“HONK!” opens Fri­day, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m., in Scha­ef­fer Au­di­to­rium; con­tin­ues on Satur­day, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. and on Sun­day, Sept. 9 at 1 p.m.
