"Even Monsters Can Be Princesses" Part 7 family friendly school play for actors of all ages

"Even Monsters Can Be Princesses" Part 7

PENELOPE
Wakey, wakey, Dee Dee. Ready to be a princess?


(DEE DEE gets up excitedly as PRIMROSE enters)


HENRY
Presenting our royal promenade master, Primrose.


PENELOPE
The royal walking tutor. I can’t believe they have one of those either, but they do.


PRIMROSE
Yes, your majesty? You require movement instruction?


HENRY
Yes, for our new princess, Dee Dee.


(PRIMROSE turns to see DEE DEE)


PRIMROSE
Holy mother of molasses! Who is this?


HENRY
She is our official princess of the day, Princess Dee Dee. It is our job to turn her into proper royalty so she can be presented to our Queen tomorrow at an official ceremony.


(DEE DEE is prancing around with a silly skip)


PRIMROSE
By tomorrow? This will take months, my liege. Years perhaps.


HENRY
Well, you only have an hour.


PRIMROSE
An hour! Not even a day?


HENRY
There is much to learn.


PENELOPE
Too much if you ask me.


PRIMROSE
No one asked you. How dare you speak this way in front of your prince.


HENRY
She has permission to speak freely. She is my friend.


PRIMROSE
Oh, the madness. Where is the Queen?


HENRY
She has given order not to be disturbed today. I am in charge. Please, proceed.


(PRIMROSE sighs)


PRIMROSE
Very well. Miss Dee Dee?


HENRY
Princess Dee Dee.


PRIMROSE
Princess Dee Dee? Will you join me over here.


(DEE DEE goes up to PRIMROSE and gives a hug)


PENELOPE
She likes to hug.


PRIMROSE
How delightful for her. First, is the royal greeting. Let’s try a courtesy. Penelope, please assist. Like so.


(PRIMROSE does a courtesy and PENELOPE does the same. DEE DEE tries and loses her balance and crashes into them and knocks them down)


PRIMROSE (CONT.)
Perhaps, you can practice that on your own.


HENRY
Maybe there is something easier we can start with.


PRIMROSE
I know something quite simple. After the courtesy is the royal greeting. When the Prince approaches you, you hold out your hand like so…


(PRIMROSE and PENELOPE hold out hands. DEE DEE copies them. HENRY kisses PENELOPE’S hand and she blushes)


PRIMROSE
Very good. Now, for Princess Dee Dee.


(DEE DEE looks scared as the HENRY approaches. HENRY takes her hand and when he is about to kiss her hand she slaps him. PENELOPE tries not to laugh. HENRY gives PENELOPE a dirty look and tries again. DEE DEE slaps him again. PRIMROSE is even looking amused now)


PRIMROSE (CONT.)
Again?


HENRY
We’ll practice that one later too.


PRIMROSE
As you wish. Next, we will perfect her royal walk. You must learn to glide like so.


(PRIMROSE demonstrates a gliding walk. HENRY does it. DEE DEE stops in a silly way)


PRIMROSE
Glide.


(PRIMROSE tries again. DEE DEE stomps even more)


PRIMROSE
Let’s try something else. Balance is very important. Allow me to put these books upon your head. And don’t move. You want to stay very still so the books do not fall.


(PRIMROSE first demonstrates with HENRY and then tries to put books on DEE DEE’s head but she just smacks them off each time one book is put on her head)


PRIMROSE
My Prince. I’m not sure this is going to work. Forgive me for failing you.


HENRY
No worries, Primrose. You are excused.


(PRIMROSE exits. DEE DEE is still doing a silly walk. PENELOPE takes DEE DEE by the hand)


PENELOPE
Like this, Dee Dee.


(PENELOPE gets DEE DEE to glide a bit)


HENRY
Well, done, Penelope! Bravo Dee Dee!


(DEE DEE is all shy and picks up a book and chews on it)


PENELOPE
Now, now, Dee Dee. Princesses don’t chew on books.

(DEE DEE opens the book upside down and pretends to read aloud with growls instead of words)
