Harry Potter has his magic powers. Captain Underpants has his Extra-Strength Super Power Juice. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have their martial arts and pizza.

Tiny Turkey has ... well ... average intelligence and absolutely no super powers whatsoever.

But that doesnít mean he canít be a superhero, a fact he proves in The Adventures of Tiny Turkey: Get a Clue. The production, put together by the Jacksonville State University Drama Department, follows Tiny Turkey as he helps solve The Case of Not Enough Slop.

Running through Saturday, the 55-minute play invites members of the audience to help Tiny Turkey solve the mystery for other barnyard animals. The play is aimed at young children, but is suitable for everyone.

The cast, Andy Cayse (Tiny Turkey), Heather Norton, Kaitie Shell and Scott VanPatten, Jr., has spent the last few weeks touring Tiny Turkey in Alabama and northern Florida.

Tiny Turkey was written by JSU professor Eric Traynor, who debuted the character in 1995 at the Storybook Theatre in Greensboro, N.C.
