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.
