House lights out.


Pale follow spot on Vka

Chorus is on, upstage.

Music begins reprise of 'The Man Says No' quietly through next section.

Chorus reprises dance step)

VKA

The show begins with a rip roaring song

The cast all dance with gusto

With great panache they move along

They're going for glory or busto.

The plot unfolds, they tell their story

It's all quite sweet, nothing gory.

We're dashing through our heroes' play

We'll pick out the main points on the way

(Ronnie and Tootsie enter stage right and walk arm in arm to centre. M Cmbt enters stage left with black wand as wicked witch and malevolently confronts Ronnie and Tootsie. Ronnie picks up polystyrene plank and goes to bash M Cmbt with it, but knocks Tootsie on head instead by accident. She is dazed, recovers, looks off stage right, puts fingers in mouth, pretend whistle, summons on from right Mr C with white sparkly wand who has comic confrontation with M Cmbt and chases him off left.

'The Man Says No' music stops)

FGM

The show now nears its interval

And one and all are having a ball

They are such a happy throng

We'll catch the end of their big song

(Music begins)

SONG - Reprise last section of THIS IS OUR MOMENT

(JUKEBOX ON PAGE 1 - TRACK 18)

Hesitation tongue tied blue-hoos with both hands we throw them out

We got a dream we can hold on fast this is our future the die is cast

This is our moment and we're going to make it (last….…)

This is our moment and we're going to make it (last…….)

This is our moment and we're going to make it last……………

(Music continues quietly

Blackout OR curtains close

All cast exit except Fgm and Vka who are still on their stools down far right

Pale follow spot on them)

VKA

(to audience)

The cast are pleased, they cannot hide

Their glee. They're full of hopes.Their interval has now arrived

(band stop playing and start to get up)

Not for you! Sit down you dopes.

(they moan and sit down again)

In the interval of their great show,

Our heroes have a chat

You listen in to hear what's said

We'll soon return to where we're sat

(Fgm and Vka exit stage right taking stools

Lights up

Millie and Ronnie enter left)

RONNIE

The first half of the show has gone brilliantly. Let's hope the second half is as good.

MILLIE

It will be. Shame Garry's not here to share it with us. I'm still so angry with him. How could I have been so wrong about him? You were the last one to see him before he went, what were you talking about?

RONNIE

Oh, nothing special

MILLIE

I do hope he'll be alright. If he brings back that bottle of magic potion and frees the stone eagle, it will be amazing. You're very quiet. What's up?………….You know something don't you?

(Ronnie says nothing. Tootsie enters left)

Did he tell you something before he went?

(Ronnie looks nervous)

He did, didn't he………Tell me ……tell me what he said ……

(Millie, angry now, grabs Ronnie)

Tell me!

RONNIE

I am sworn to secrecy by Garry. I cannot break his trust. I promised him.

TOOTSIE

You may have promised him, Ronnie, but I didn't. I heard you talking.

RONNIE

Don't say, please

MILLIE

Tell me, Tootsie

TOOTSIE

The Fgm chose him to go because he had the best protection against the WW.

MILLIE

The best protection? How?

TOOTSIE

Because he is the first born child of a first born child. The Fgm said such a person had the best chance against the evil powers of the WW.

MILLIE

And I have an older brother and sister

TOOTSIE

He said he would rather go with you hating him because if he didn't come back, then you wouldn't be upset, no problem……….and there was one more thing he said before he left

RONNIE

Don't tell her

MILLIE

What was it?

TOOTSIE

He's in love with you

MILLIE

(wails)

Ooooh

(she buries her face in her hands. Tootsie puts her arms round her)

RONNIE

Why did you tell her? Look how upset she is. There's nothing we can do to help Garry

TOOTSIE

Yes there is

MILLIE

What?

TOOTSIE
We can ask the Fgm to send a special spell to protect him

RONNIE
Do you think she can do it?

TOOTSIE

It's got to be worth a try

(Fgm enters stage right)

FGM

With my magic I could sense

Your sad, unhappy sentiments

MILLIE

Oh Fairy Godmother please help me. I've made a terrible mistake. I thought Garry tricked me to stop me going to the land of the Ww. But he was trying to help me and I was horrible to him. Now he's gone and I may never see him again. Please, you've got to make a magic spell to bring him home safely. Please help me.

FGM
You want me to cast a spell

To keep your loved one safe and well.

MILLIE

Yes, please. Will you?

FGM

Oh how I wish I had the power

To reach him in his needing hour

But my magic cannot reach

Into the world of the Ww

MILLIE

Oh no!

FGM (putting her arms round Millie.

Follow spot comes up on Fgm and Millie, lights go down on rest of stage)

But you can help him and I'll tell you why

You yourself can save him by

The power that within you lies

To reach into the darken skies

And save him from the wicked witch

MILLIE

But how? How can I do it?(Music begins quietly, theme of 'Can you hear me')

(JUKEBOX ON PAGE 1 - TRACK 19)

FGM

Within yourself you can feel it

Now it's time, you must reveal it.

The love you hold within your heart

Is greater than all wicked art.

The power of love no bounds can hold

So let your tender heart unfold

Your love for him and seek him out

In danger's lair, then put to rout

The evil forces lurking there

And bring him home on love's soft wings

And then once more your hearts will sing.

Only you can do it

(Fgm exits stage right taking Tootsie and Ronnie with her)

MILLIE (walks stage left. Follow spot follows her. All other lights down.

She calls forlornly)

Garry, Garry.

Can you hear me, Garry, Can you hear me …………..

Oh this is hopeless

(Millie sits on floor.

Music introduces first verse)

Yes…….. I can do it …………. Yes I can

SONG - CAN YOU HEAR ME

(JUKEBOX ON PAGE 1 - TRACK 20)

MILLIE

(sings)

Have I lost you. Have I lost you

Will I ever look again upon your face

Have I lost you. Have I lost you

Have my foolish words condemned you to your fate.

(Millie puts her head in her hands and sobs.

Elves enter stage left.

They offer their hands to Millie and help her to stand up.

Millie and elves dance over one verse of song.

Follow spot on Millie)

MILLIE

(sings)

Can I reach you. Can I reach you

Will my love take wing and fly across the sea

Will it find you. Will it find you

Will it rise above the stars and set you free
