Jackie and the Potato Stalk Part 3 free script for school age actors

JACKIE AND THE POTATO STALK
Part 3



SPUD
Jackie ran excitedly back to her Mama to tell her the news of the magical spuds.
JACKIE
Mama, Mama. Look at what I got!
MAMA
A little bag? I hope that's not it.
JACKIE
No, inside are magic potatoes.
                    (Pulls out potatoes)
MAMA
Magic potatoes?!
JACKIE
The old man said they would make our dreams come true.
MAMA
Dreams won't feed us, Jackie. I can't believe that crazy old coot would do this to us!
                    (Takes potatoes)
JACKIE
Mama, no!
                    (MAMA tosses potatoes to DR stage)
MAMA
Go to your room and don't come out until I get back from the old man’s.
JACKIE
What are you going to do?
MAMA
I'm going to get our cow back.
                    (Exits)
JACKIE
Oh, Mama. I'm so sorry.
                    (JACKIE cries and curls up on the floor)
SPUD
But I did not lie to the little girl. Those potatoes were magic and while Jackie slept, a most amazing thing happened!


(Lights fade and magical Western guitar music is heard. Moonlight hits DR and then a rumble sound and a potato rises to from the ground. NOTE: You can stage this in a variety of ways. Have a rope from the ceiling that pulls up the potato stalk or have a drawing on the background that is uncovered from the bottom up. The sound wakes JACKIE)


SPUD
When Jackie wakes, she sees a most amazing thing. A giant spudstalk.


JACKIE
                    (She rises)
Is that... it's a... giant potato stalk!
                    (She jumps up and down excited)
Those potatoes are magic! Magic! Magic! Magic!
SPUD
Told you so.
JACKIE
                    (Looks up)
It's so tall. I bet I can see Boise from up there.
SPUD
Climb up and see.
JACKIE
I think I will.
SPUD
You won't be sorry.
