Life isn’t easy when you go to Ronald Reagan Junior High. The teachers are weird, the cross-country team doesn’t have any funding, and the cafeteria never has the right food on the right day!
But for Andrea Deandrea Hafferton, typical teen suckiness gets ratcheted to a new level after an accident in the school science lab curses her with the world’s most awkward disorder: she mutates into a ferocious “werechicken” during the most inconvenient times.
Night of the Chicken is a family friendly radio play series written by Carrie Behrens. The show is performed onstage with live sound effects at Space 55 theater in downtown Phoenix.
After an accident in the school science lab Andi starts to experience some very strange and embarrassing chicken-like symptoms. Meanwhile, a series of suspicious events have befallen the school, and Mr.K—Andi’s prickly biology teacher—is acting pretty mysterious himself.
As Andi struggles to keep her new “condition” from taking over her life, her arrogant cross-country rival becomes suspicious of her secret. To make matters worse, a messy rumor has infected the school, forcing Andi to team up with Mr.K to perform damage control.
Andi’s already complicated life reaches whole new levels of disaster and humiliation when she goes head-to-head with bullies, unflattering outfits, and the mysterious feline that’s been terrorizing her friends.
Andi’s struggle to contain her “monstrous” secret becomes even harder as she is hounded by nosy reporters, forced to give a disastrous speech, and learns the worst news of all: Taco Tuesday is cancelled!
