"Even Monsters Can Be Princesses" Part 6 family friendly school play for actors of all ages

"Even Monsters Can Be Princesses" Part 6

SCENE 2


(PENELOPE and HENRY make sure everyone is hiding. They bring out DEE DEE and sit her on the throne)


HENRY
I know you want to be a princess, but it’s a lot of work. Today, you will be princess for a day, but I want to show you it is not all fun and games. Being royalty is a big responsibility. We might be rich. We might be powerful. We might dress in finest and most glamorous clothing that others can only dream of. But it all comes at a price.


(DEE DEE falls asleep during speech and her loud snore startles the HENRY)


PENELOPE
Your speech put her to sleep.


HENRY
This is going to be more challenging than I thought.


PENELOPE
Do you think teaching her all this royal stuff is the right idea?


HENRY
Either she learns how to behave herself or she sees that there is another side to being royal that is not so desireable.


PENELOPE
I honestly can’t see much of a downside to being royalty.


HENRY
I know I make it look easy, but there’s enormous pressures on us. It can be very overwhelming at times.


PENELOPE
Yes, how can you possibly eat all that wonderful food every day at dinner? How can you possibly choose between all those fancy clothes day after day? It’s so much better to have to wear the same clothes every single day like us servants.


HENRY
Do you have a better plan?


PENELOPE
Not really.


HENRY
Then, let me try my way first, please.


PENELOPE
You realize you’re the only member of the royal family that says please?


HENRY
If I became king, I’d make everyone say please.


PENELOPE
It might be better to teach people by example than to order everyone to do something.


HENRY
You servants have such a simple way of looking at things. It’s refreshing.


PENELOPE
Thank you… I think that was a compliment.


HENRY
Now, let’s wake Dee Dee Monster and get this princess training underway.
