What happens when a turkey from the sticks meets a Park Avenue pigeon? With the feel of an old-time radio show, Tough Turkey in the Big City follows the comic blunders of Tom Turkey, who leaves the farm to try his luck in the big city. There’s a close call with a menacing chef, a tussle at the Turkey Club, a brief romance with a pigeon, and a happy mix-up at the Thanksgiving Day parade. It’s a big-hearted story of a plucky bird with a bold idea that leads him to a place he never expected.

With music by Bruce Adolphe.

Musical Instrument Petting Zoo in the lobby from 1:00-1:45 PM, free for ticket holders.
