Play Description:
A satirical comedy about four mismatched artists attempting to devise an ethnically sensitive play for the local schools to celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month. They must find their way through a hilarious thicket of absurd assumptions, historical perspectives, and school district policy as the pageant must go on!

Parking and Accessibility:
Mitchell St. Library has a free parking lot on 9th St., between Mitchell Ave. and Lapham Blvd. Both the lot and the library are accessible to individuals with disabilities.

About Milwaukee Public Library, Mitchell St. Branch:
The Mitchell Street Branch is the largest of Milwaukee Public Library’s branch libraries. The branch is part of an historic restoration and redevelopment of the five-story Hill’s Building which was once home to a department store of the same name. Milwaukee Public Library is an anchor institution that helps build healthy families and vibrant neighborhoods – the foundation of a strong Milwaukee.
