KFP by Jacob R., Almani C., Kemani B., Gabrielle S., Monica J., Jala B., Lashay E., Dixon Elementary School
It was a sunny day in Hawaii. Fred, the chicken sadnwich, was opening up KFP (Kentucky Fried People). On the roof was a blow-up chicken that was orange and holding a human heart. Shrimp, the dancing cucumber, went into the kitchen and saw Fred cutting up the food. But the food wasn’t chicken, it was people. She called the police (Devie & Stewie, who weren;t very smart) and when they came, Shrimp starting singing the KFP song. KENTUCKY FRIED PEOPLE, IS PEOPLE NOT CHICKEN *COME ON* The police started dancing. So they didn’t arrest Fred (Who just made his hit single that made $1000, and the album cover had a chicken sandwich with a human in his hand) Instead, Shrimp solved it by eating Fred. Shrimp says, “Sandwish. sw. sw.” THE END.

Say “Kentucky Fried People is people not chicken.” at the box office for discounted tickets!

Plus you get to see the fan favorite Planet Dartruda!

Here is the story:

PLANET DARTRUDA by Jacari R., Taniya J., Nakiya B.

We see toilet paper like a teddy bear. And we see little people
bothering a chicken egg. We see little bumble bees stinging people. It
is hot like the desert and sometimes cold- freezing and so hot at the
same time. It changes quickly like our world when it used to be sunny.
The sun on this planet is polka dot and orange. The chicken egg is
cracking and the chicken inside might die unless a bee stings the
little people.  THE END.

Say “little bumble bees stinging people” at the box office and get discounted tickets!

See you at the show!
