Welcome to Fort Collins Childrens Theatre!
Started in 1958 by a group of community-minded individuals, FCCT is founded on the belief that exposure to live theatrical performances is a valuable experience to be shared with families and children of all ages. FCCT's Fall production combines the talents of mature actors and technicians with the creativity and wonder of young people. The Peanut Butter and Jam Revue is a summer workshop program where young people are the performers and technicians.

Peanut Butter, Jam Revue present:
Book by Anthony Drewe
Music by George Stiles
Lyrics by Anthony Drewe
Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling
In the London season featuring the appearance of Disney’s The Lion King, HONK! – a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling – became a stand-out, even winning the 2000 Olivier Award (the British equivalent of the Tony® Award) for Best New Musical.
Now adapted for young performers, and with a score by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (dubbed “The brightest hopes for the future of the British musical” by The London Daily Telegraph), HONK! JR. is the story of Ugly, an awkward duck whose gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry cat, Ugly must find his way home. Along his rollicking and harrowing journey, he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious destiny but also finds love and acceptance in all its forms.
Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, HONK! JR. will treat your audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears. Featuring a flexible cast size, HONK! JR. can be performed with simple sets and costumes. No feathers or fur necessary! Its charm, humor, and message of tolerance is perfect for any audience.
This performance is presented by the Fort Collins Children’s Theatre’s summer workshop for children 10 – 14 years of age. They have spent the past six weeks doing everything it takes to put on a show, so come see the kind of talent our Northern Colorado children have. The performance will be in the Lincoln Center’s Magnolia Theatre.
