After a critically acclaimed World Premiere at the Balagan Theatre in Seattle Washington, ThanksKilling The Musical will be making its New York debut at the 1st annual Festival of the Offensive this spring.
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.
Produced by David Eck, in association with Ashley Kate Adams ThanksKilling will receive four performances as part of the Festival of the Offensive, which is being presented at The Producers’ Club (358 W. 44th St.) April 28th – May 4th.
Creative team and casting will be announced at a later date.
