Props:  Long table with baskets full of fruit and bread.  Pumpkin pie, cranberry  sauce, and a toy ax.


(The pilgrims are chasing the turkey throughout stage, but they can’t catch him. Pilgrim 2 is carrying an ax)


PILGRIM 1:  Come here!.


PILGRIM 2:  (in a sweet voice) Come to me little turkey, come to me.


TURKEY:  No.  I know what you’re up to!.


PILGRIM 3:  We just want to play.  Come on!.


PILGRIM 4:  Don’t be shy!.


TURKEY:  No.  You want to cook me and put me on a plate!.


PILGRIM 5:  We don’t want to eat you!.


TURKEY:  Sure you do.  I can see that hungry look on your face!.  Gobble, gobble, gobble.


(The Turkey stops running and starts to sing to the tune of “I Will Survive”, by Gloria Gaynor.  “I Will Survive” – Karaoke Style)


First I was afraid

I was petrified

Kept thinking I could never live

To see my little ones

But then I spent so many nights

Thinking how to run away

And I got strong

And learned how to try to escape

And now you lie

You tell me things

I just run fast and see you near with that mad look upon your face

And you promise not to eat me

Especially today

When you have a celebration

A great Thanksgiving Day!

Go on now go

Walk out the door

Just turn around now

Cause I don’t want you anymore

Weren’t  you the one

Who tried to hurt me with your knife

You think I wouldn’t struggle

You think I  lay down

And die


 Oh no, not I

I will survive!

Oh as long as I know

How to gobble

I know I’ll stay alive

I’ve got all my life to live

You’re not getting all my meat

I will survive

Till Christmas Day!

Hey Hey


(The Turkey stops singing and walks proudly among the pilgrims)


PILGRIM 1:  You  look delicious!.


PILGRIM 2:  I’ll get him!.


TURKEY:  No.  Leave me alone!.  Leave me alone!.


(Pilgrim 2 chases the Turkey.  They run like in slow motion.  The Pilgrim hits the turkey with the ax and the Turkey falls down to the floor.  All the Pilgrims pick up the Turkey and leave stage)


ALL PILGRIMS:  Happy Thanksgiving Day!.
