After critically acclaimed and sold out productions in Seattle, New York  Columbus and Atlanta, ThanksKilling The Musical flies into Central Florida this spring. Get ready Orlando, Turkie is coming for you!

ThanksKilling, which features music by Jeff Thomson (Trails, Jawbreaker, Pump Up the Volume) and lyrics by Jordan Mann (Trails, Jawbreaker), was conceived in partnership with David Eck and is adapted from the cult film by Jordan Downey and Kevin Stewart. ThanksKilling, based on the film of the same name is about five college kids headed home for Thanksgiving break who cross paths with a homicidal turkey possessed by an ancient Indian curse. Horror and hilarity ensue, as the teens must stop the manic bird before he kills them all.
