When young Arthur is sent out on Thanksgiving to find a chicken for his family dinner, he discovers Professor Mazzocchi and Henrietta, a two hundred-sixty pound chicken with personality! Arthur and Henrietta bond immediately. When Arthur is forced by his father to return Henrietta, the chicken goes bezerk, terrorizing the town of Hoboken. Although an expert is brought in to take down the chicken, the town is saved only by learning to have love and compassion, even for extraordinary chickens. Everyone comes together just in time for a Christmas celebration.
“[Chad] Henry’s songs are witty evocation of classic Broadway styles like ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ ” –Seattle Post-Intelligencer
