Chicken Run

Saturday, June 26 - Sunday, June 27, 2010

The Great Escape but with chickens.” Plucky hen Ginger works at Tweedy’s Chicken Farm laying eggs for the vicious Mrs. Tweedy. When egg production begins to dwindle, Mrs. Tweedy decides to turn the farm into a chicken pot-pie factory.

Trapped behind barbed wire and fearing for their lives, the determined Ginger and her fellow pen-mates try tunnels, catapults, disguises, and all manner of deception to escape their prison camp coop and evade destruction by the monstrous pie-making machine. All appears hopeless when out of the blue a dashing rooster named Rocky lands in the farm—an aerialist fresh off of the circus circuit—and promises to teach the fawning, lovestruck hens how to fly.
