PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This short (10 - 15 minutes) one act comedy is perfect for young children and older to around 4th grade. The humor is sophisticated enough that the older children will understand and enjoy it while the younger children will see it as a funny interpretation of Thanksgiving. In this play, the participants at the first Thanksgiving did not have turkey at the great feast, they had the turkeys over for the meal.

The costuming can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. There will be simple costume ideas at the end of the play.

Cast
The three hunters - Jim and brothers, Clem and Clem- (Hunters should speak with an exaggerated southern accent.)
A Forest Ranger
The Big Turkey
Four Pilgrims - or you can use as many as you can handle so that everyone gets a part.
Four Native Americans - the same for the Native Americans
3 Other Turkeys
A Pizza Delivery Person

After purchasing The Day of the Turkey, when I printed it, the document still has a DocuComPDFTrial water mark across it on every page. This makes it almost impossible to read. Can you produce a "clean" document and re-send it? Thanks! Heather
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 1, 2011Mark Lyons answered:
Heather,

I am so sorry. I have made a "clean" document and have uploaded it to the teacherspayteachers website. Please download it again. If you have any more problems, please let me know. Thank you.
