To Be A Star Part 5 Burning Money free stage play script for kids

"TO BE A STAR"
by D. M. Larson
PART 5 "Burning Money"



(AMY breaks down crying.  JOE tries to comfort her but every time he tries to touch her she cries really loud.  He tries three times and then gives up and leaves. SARAH and MEGAN enter)

SARAH
What's the matter, Amy?

AMY
Joe just burned $1,000... just like that.

MEGAN
Well, that is the cool thing to do.  

AMY
It's horrible.

MEGAN
Those superstars have so much money, they don't know what to do with it.  So the cool thing now is to burn it.  

LUCY
I provide a receipt that proves it.  The more receipts you got, the cooler you are.

AMY
This is terrible.  There are starving people in the world and homeless and they're just burning it?  

LUCY
You don't understand.  

AMY
I understand too much.

LUCY
When you grow up...

AMY
When I grow up, I'll still think this is crazy.

SARAH
I see you got a lot of money in those buckets.

(SARAH had been sneaking around and finds buckets.  LUCY rushes to block her way)

LUCY
These buckets are private property and scheduled for burning.  Touch it and have the biggest lawsuit slapped on you...

(MEGAN has gathered some money from the buckets.  LUCY turns and MEGAN tries to look innocent)

LUCY (CONT.)
What are you doing?

MEGAN
Nothing.

LUCY
You didn't take any money did you?

MEGAN
No.

(While LUCY is distracted, SARAH starts sneaking away some money)

LUCY
I see some sticking out your pocket.

MEGAN
No you don't.

(LUCY grabs for her. MEGAN runs)

LUCY
Come back here!

(LUCY chases MEGAN and they vanish off stage)

SARAH
Grab a bucket of money, Amy!

(SARAH tries to give her a bucket)

SARAH
Here... take one.

AMY
I can't.

SARAH
But you can buy things with it... or give Joe back his money... and help homeless people too.

(LUCY returns)

LUCY
Hey!

(SARAH runs off. LUCY chases her)

AMY
I should at least get Joe's $1000 back.  That wouldn't be stealing... would it?
