Holiday becomes a play

While a traditional Thanksgiving typically consists of food and family, Eva Haubrich, freshman, has a different spin on the November holiday.

“It’s a Thanksgiving themed play that I do with my cousins,” Haubrich said.Habrich’s Aunt started the yearly family production in 2007.

“We usually have Thanksgiving at my Uncle Rick’s house, and we perform after we all eat,” Haubrich said.Habrich’s entire family participates.

“Every cousin gets a part. There are eight of us, and we practice … We perform it for our parents and grandparents, and we usually add things into the original play to make it funny or weird,” Haubrich said.

Every year the play includes the same content, but it is still different each year. “We usually add our own twist to the play every year, for example, this year our turkeys and people were from Mars, and our aunt makes us do it,” Haubrich said. “It is really silly, but fun.”

Haubrich also added that they never get through the whole play.“I think the family tradition is a little weird because it’s not like we ever finish the play.”
