Powers New Voices Festival The Thanksgiving Play

Summary

The Thanksgiving Play

By Larissa FastHorse

Sunday, January 20 at 7:30 p.m.

In this satirical comedy, four well-intentioned teachers and actors set out to create a politically correct school play that can somehow celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month. Can they navigate historical fact, cultural representation, and school district regulations to create a play that makes everyone thankful? Either way, the pageant must go on!

A line for standby seating will form 30 minutes before each performance of the Powers New Voices Festival.  Based on ticket-holder attendance, those standing in the standby line may be seated.  Seating is based on seat availability and is not guaranteed.  Latecomers with tickets are also not guaranteed admittance.
