"Even Monsters Can Be Princesses" Part 9 family friendly school play for actors of all ages

"Even Monsters Can Be Princesses" Part 9

PENELOPE
You’re off to a good start. Helping Dee Dee is one of the kindest things I’ve seen a royal do in a long time. So what’s next?


HENRY
How about table manners?


PENELOPE
Oh, dear. Are you sure?


HENRY
Dee Dee looks hungry.


(DEE DEE nods excitedly)


HENRY
Bring forth the royal cook.


(HENRY is setting up a table setting. COOKIE enters with a covered tray. DEE DEE jumps up and down excitedly. She goes after COOKIE who dodges. PENELOPE stops DEE DEE)


COOKIE
My prince, what is this?


HENRY
This is Princess Dee Dee. We are here to teach her some table manners.


COOKIE
Oh, dear. Are you sure?


HENRY
Positive.


(HENRY motions for everyone to approach the table setting he has put together in front of the throne)


HENRY (CONT.)
Please, sit, Princess Dee Dee.


(DEE DEE sits oddly in the throne with a leg hanging over the arm. PENELOPE pushes her leg but DEE DEE laughs like she is tickled and puts the leg back again. They do this a few times during the following)


HENRY
I have set the table correctly, I believe.


COOKIE
Well, done, my Prince. Perfection.


HENRY
Table setting will be something we learn later. What’s more important is to have the proper manners for eating with royalty. Before you receive your meal, you must first place the napkin on your lap.


(DEE DEE grabs the napkin and surprisingly puts it on her lap)


PENELOPE
Very good, Dee Dee.


HENRY
Bravo. Now, your dinner is being served and when the cover is removed, you…


(COOKIE places the food on the table and removes the cover as the HENRY speaks, but when the cover is removed, DEE DEE pounces and rips into the food)


COOKIE
What is the meaning of this?! My masterpiece!


HENRY
I’m so sorry, Cookie. We’ll clean this up.


COOKIE
I’ve never seen such savagery. I’m not sure I can ever cook again.


PENELOPE
I’m sure you’ll recover.


(PENELOPE escorts COOKIE out. HENRY watches DEE DEE sadly. DEE DEE sees the HENRY is sad and offers some food)


HENRY
No, thank you.

(DEE DEE shrugs and goes back to eating)
