Beauty IS a Beast by D. M. Larson

  • ISBN-13: 978-1511495967


FAIRY: Ready?


FAIRY: Here we go!
(ZAP! And lights go black)

PRINCESS: It's so dark.

FAIRY: Something's wrong?

PRINCESS: Are we home yet?

NICK: (Runs into something)
I'm afraid not.
(There is a knock at the door)
I wonder who that is. I guess we'll never know because I can't
find the door.

FAIRY: Now what's the spell for turning on lights.
(She claps her hands twice)
Clap on!
(The lights return)
That was easy.

NICK: I've got the door.
(Opens it)

JANIE: It's me, Nick. I've brought someone.
(She leads in HONOR and the KING with SCRIBE and GUARDS)

PRINCESS: Sister! Father!
(She runs and hugs them)

KING: Beauty? Is it really you?

HONOR: What happened to you?

PRINCESS: Something wonderful.

KING: I don't understand.

PRINCESS: I haven't been the nicest person in the world and my fairy godmother here decided to turn me inside out.

HONOR: I'm so glad your safe.

PRINCESS: I don't know what would have happened to me if it hadn't been for Nick.

KING: Nick?

NICK: (On his knees)
Yes, your highness.

KING: Please rise.
(The kids all start to gather)
Hello, children.

CINDY: Are you really the king?

KING: I'm really the king.

CINDY: I don't believe you.

NICK: Cindy, show some respect.

KING: That's okay. She seems like a sweet girl.

PRINCESS: Thank you all for taking care of me. You've all been
so wonderful.

MANDY: Are you leaving us?

SAM: Please, don't go.

NICK: She must go. She's a princess.

PRINCESS: But, I can't just go back to the way I was. I like
my new life.

KING: What are you saying? You don't want to come home?

PRINCESS: I just don't want to be who I was before. I can never
be as good as Honor.

HONOR: What do you mean?

PRINCESS: I'm still not as beautiful as you are, sister. I don't think I ever can be.

HONOR: But you are the most beautiful woman in the kingdom.

PRINCESS: I used to think so, but not anymore. Now I think you've always been the most beautiful, we just couldn't see it.

FAIRY: I can return your beauty to you now.

PRINCESS: No, I don't think I want my beauty anymore.

NICK: I think you're beautiful now.

PETER: Don't change, Beauty.

PRINCESS: I don't think I will.

HONOR: Father? Can't we let Beauty stay here?

KING: My daughter? A peasant? Never.

HONOR: Then why don't you get rid of the peasants.

NICK: What?!

HONOR: That sounded terrible. What I mean is why don't you make all the peasants nobles, lords, and ladies? We can give them all some of our riches and they can all live as well as we do.

KING: I suppose we could do that.

PRINCESS: Oh, please, father.

KING: Okay. We�ll do it!

ALL: Hurray!

KING: We will open the royal treasuries. We'll give away all our excess clothes and food. No one will ever suffer in our kingdom again!

ALL: Hurray!

KING: And we'll start with our friends Nick and Janie.

NICK: Please, your highness. We don't need anything. We are happy as we are.

KING: What?

JANIE: We have everything we need.

KING: But you don't have silver plates and purple robes. You don't have golden chairs and fuzzy slippers.

PRINCESS: All things we can live without.

HONOR: How about no more taxes?

NICK: It's a deal.
(Shakes KING's hand)

KING: No, no, no more taxes. Are you sure we can do that?

HONOR: Yes, father. We can. We have more money than we know what to do with and soon I'll be married to Andres and living in his kingdom.

KING: Then who will lead my kingdom?

PRINCESS: Perhaps Nick would be willing.


PRINCESS: You could make him a prince, father.


PRINCESS: And then we could get married.

NICK and KING: Married?

KIDS: Hurray!

HONOR: I think it's a wonderful idea!

KING: I think we're out voted, Nick.

NICK: It looks that way.

KING: This is certainly one of the most unusual things that has ever happened in my kingdom.

PRINCESS: You can say that again.

NICK: You sure this is what you want to do, Beauty.

PRINCESS: I've never been more sure of anything in my life.
(They hug)

HONOR: It looks like we're going to have a double wedding!

KIDS: Hurray!

PETER: I get to be best man!

CINDY: I get to be the maid of honor.

MANDY: I want to be the flower girl.

KING: What have I gotten myself into?
(Lights fade to black)

FAIRY: (A light comes up on her. She's sobbing happily) Wasn't that a touching story? Oh, I'm sorry. I'm a sucker for a happy ending.
(Gets herself under control)
Things were never the same in the kingdom again. Peasants were freed from their burden of taxes and numerous holidays were declared for the upcoming weddings of Beauty to Nick and Honor to Andres. And they all lived happily ever after, of course.
(Stops as if someone has asked her a question)
Me? I'm off to Hawaii for our centennial fairy godmother convention. I heard the big island is going to blow it's top. That will be quite a show. Almost as good as this one. Bye now!

(Snaps her fingers and lights fade to black)
