Gingerbread Girl Part 4 free funny school play for children

GINGERBREAD GIRL by D. M. Larson
PART 4


(GINGER comes out of hiding.  She hears crying.  She looks around tree.  She sees a FOX)

GINGER
Hello?

FOX
Please, go away.

(FOX cries more.  GINGER goes up to him and offer a tissue)

GINER
Here.

FOX
Thank you.

(FOX blows noisily on the tissue.  He hands it back and GINGER tosses it.   FOX sees her better now)

FOX (CONT.)
You're... gingerbread!

(GINGER nods.  FOX moans)

FOX (CONT.)
Oh, I was hoping I'd never see another Gingerbread person ever again.

(GINGER is sad and cries)

FOX (CONT.)
I'm sorry.  That was a mean thing to say.  It's just that I ate the last Gingerbread person to come here and now I have a horrible tummy ache.

(GINGER stops crying)

FOX (CONT.)
I wish I could do something about it.  It fills like he's a big lump in my stomach that I can't get out.

(GINGER goes up to FOX and listens to his stomach)

MAN
Run... run... as fast as you can...

(FOX sighs)

FOX
Yes, he's still singing in there too.  I can't sleep!

GINGER
I will... help.

FOX
How?

(GINGER takes FOX and pushes him into the river (off front of stage).  Actors playing water make waves or someone gets the audience to be waves)

FOX (CONT.)
Help!  Help!  I can't swim on a full stomach.  Oh, oh.  Cramp!  I'm going down.

(BAKER and IGOR rush on along with COPS.  COPS grab GINGER.  She points at water)

FOX (CONT.)
Somebody save the fox!  I'm going down again.  Good-bye cruel world!

(FOX goes down.  BAKER jumps in the water.  Fox pops up one last time)

FOX (CONT.)
Rosebud!

BAKER
I got you.

(IGOR and COPS help them back on stage.  FOX falls to the ground.  GINGER runs to him and pushes on his stomach.  The others rush and block the audiences view and the GINGERBREAD MAN pops up and they back away)

MAN
I'm free!  I'm free!

COP 1
You're under arrest.

MAN
I'm not free.

COP 2
We're taking you downtown.

MAN
You'll never take me alive.

COP 3
Grab his gumdrops.

MAN
Not my gumdrop buttons!

(COP 1 rips buttons off MAN.  MAN falls.  GINGER cries)
COP 1
Another job well done.

COP 2
Coffee?

COP 3
Sure!  Donuts?

COP 1
Certainly!  Let's go.

(GINGER is next to MAN.  BAKER tries to comfort her)

GINGER
He's like me.

BAKER
He was.

GINGER
I will help him.

(GINGER pulls off one of her gumdrop buttons...)

IGOR
No!

GINGER
I'm okay.

IGOR
Oh.

(GINGER puts the button on MAN.  He comes back to life)

MAN
You saved me.

BAKER
He's alive!

GINGER
I saved him.

BAKER
See... she can be taught.

IGOR
Quick.  Grab him before he makes a break for it.

MAN
No, I don't want to run anymore.

GINGER
Will you stay?

MAN
I will.

FOX
Awww... they're so sweet.

(GINGER and MAN look at each other all silly and sappy)

BAKER
You think I used a little too much sugar?

[The light gets bright like a sunrise.  Happy music plays.  The entire cast comes out and everyone breaks out in dance (insert musical number here)]

IGOR
And so Ginger and the Gingerbread Man lived...

ALL
Happily Ever After!

END OF PLAY
