Costumes


Farmyard Bird

Everyone is a farmyard bird unless you are a main character throughout the show. If you are not that character in ‘A Poultry Tale then you must be a farmyard bird, so here goes:


it’s whatever you want to be (within reason) and the costume is down to you and the school will provide comedy beaks for everyone.

Some ideas:


Pheasant, hunting gear
Chicks, yellow and fluffy bangles and stuff,
Cockerels, in red,
Chickens in brown,
Ducks in green and yellow or brown,
There is a lot of scope for this so be what you want however no swans and don’t go and hire a large chicken costume; it only needs to hint that you are a bird!
Remember you need to dance in it!

Geese (except Graylag (you know what you are doing))

Some form of army jumper to be provided by the school, and is t.b.c
Trousers, t.b.c
And walking/ marching boots, (borrow some off of a friend in the cadet force!?)
Beaks from the school.

Froglets (not bull frog (you know what you are doing!))

Green t-shirt you need to get
Green shorts you need to get
Green leggings (optional) you may want to get
Green hat from school and green legwarmers likewise
Footwear t.b.c (I guess some form of dance shoe but I will try to check)

Ducklings
