When I first saw HONK! at Marriott Theater I fell in love with it. It has a great story line and some wonderful characters. So, when the “junior” version came out, I knew some day I would produce the show at my school. I had already told the students that we were doing “The Sound of Music,” so HONK! was a 180-degree turn. Some students were upset, since many of them knew the story and music of “The Sound of Music.” Only one student had seen and heard of it. I was concerned that there wasn’t the movie for the students to watch and get excited about the show. Well, we live in a different connected world. Think youtube. Yes, my students watched all the songs on youtube and this year’s production has more students than ever. I am a connected teacher and everyday the students amaze me.
