ACT 1 SCENE 1

NARRATOR
Once upon a time! There were three witches.

(One WITCHY comes out)

NARRATOR (CONT.)
There were 3! witches.

(No more come out)

NARRATOR (Cont.)
Where are the others?

WITCHY
They're still getting ready... It's not easy look this scary. Boo!

(AUTHOR comes out and gives the NARRATOR a new page)

NARRATOR
Fine... Once upon a time there was a witch and 3 princesses.

(3 princesses appear)

WITCHY
Hey! What's the big idea?! I thought this was our story. How come princesses have to come in and take over every story.

PRINCESS KAY
Because we're more beautiful than you.

(KAY knocks the witch's hat off)

PRINCESS BEE
And more graceful.

(One trips WITCHY)

PRINCESS DEE
And more intel... Intelli... More smarter than you.

(One drops a big book on her)

WITCHY
I'll get you my pretties and your little NARRATOR too!

NARRATOR
I'm not that little.

WITCHY
Where's the AUTHOR? I demand to see the AUTHOR. I was told this was this story was about witches.

(AUTHOR enters. Princesses clap their hands)

ALL 3 PRINCESSES
Author!! Author!

(AUTHOR likes the attention but tries to act cool)

AUTHOR
Ladies please.

PRINCESS KAY
Can I have your autograph?

PRINCESS BEE
Your even more handsome in person.

PRINCESS DEE
I've read all your scripts.

WITCHY
Ok now I see why this isn't about witches anymore.

AUTHOR
Never fear, foul witch... The story has not yet begun. For this is a tale more WITCHY than the wicked west winds. More magical the northern night sky.... It's a tale of truth and revelation. Of crime and punishment... A tale of three witches who wrought wrongs with woe. It was a dark and stormy night...

NARRATOR
Hey you took my lines!

PRINCESS KAY
He says them so much better.

PRINCESS BEE
He's so dreamy.

PRINCESS DEE
Wait a minute... He said 3 witches.

PRINCESS KAY
So it's not about us?

AUTHOR
There are no small parts. Only small actors.

NARRATOR
Will everyone stop calling me small? I'm just a bit undertall.

WITCHY
So this is about us?

AUTHOR
Observe.

(Monster looking person with scroll)

MONSTER
By order of the witch Queen Gwyndolin, there will be a contest of witches.

BEE
I hope it's not a beauty contest.

DEE
Maybe an ugly contest.

MONSTER
The queen will award the trickiest witch in the land with the one trick pony.

PRINCESS KAY
I like ponies.

NARRATOR
The one trick pony is no ordinary pony. It's a magical creature.

PRINCESS BEE
Like a unicorn?

PRINCESS DEE
I love unicorns!

NARRATOR
No but it grants the owner with one wish... Any wish their heart desires.

WITCHY
And I think I know what I'd wish for.

(WITCHY gives Princesses a dirty look)

PRINCESS KAY
I'd wish to be fairest of them all.

PRINCESS BEE
I'd wish for a handsome Prince.

PRINCESS DEE
I'd wish for more wishes.

WITCHY
So how do I win?

MONSTER
The witch who tricks the most non-witches will win the prize.

WITCHY
Tricks eh? How will the queen know how many I've tricked?

MONSTER
The trickster must take the trickees to a trap and detain them there for the total tally time.

WITCHY
But how will I trick these people?

PRINCESS KAY
I am way prettier than all of you.

PRINCESS DEE
I am fairest of them all.

PRINCESS BEE
My beauty makes you two look like the beast.

(WITCHY turns to audience)

WITCHY
I couldn't ... Could I? They're asking for it.

(To princesses)

WITCHY (CONT.)
I have something that will make you the most lovely of all.

PRINCESS KAY
Really?

PRINCESS BEE
I want it.

PRINCESS DEE
Dibs... I called royal dibs.

PRINCESS KAY
There's no such thing.

PRINCESS DEE
Is so.

PRINCESS BEE
Not!

WITCHY
Wait... Wait. You can all three have it.

PRINCESS KAY
We can't all be prettiest... Can we?

WITCHY
You must put this magic powder on the one thing you want to be prettiest... But you must all pick something different.

PRINCESS BEE
My hair. I pick hair.

PRINCESS DEE
Face... I pick face.

PRINCESS KAY
Then I pick everything else.

PRINCESS BEE
Can she do that?

WITCHY
She can.

PRINCESS DEE
No fair.

PRINCESS KAY
Hand over the powder, witch.

WITCHY
Heed this warning. You must only use it at night while you are asleep or a terrible curse will befall you.

PRINCESS BEE
Yeah yeah whatever.

PRINCESS DEE
Let's go. I am going to bed early tonight.

(PRINCESSES go)

MONSTER
What did you give them?

WITCHY
Itching powder... I always carry some on me. I love how it makes my toes tingle.

(AUTHOR writes stuff and hands it to NARRATOR)

NARRATOR
So the first witch's trick has been set in motion and she ponders what evil deed she shall do... (To AUTHOR) But is she really that evil?

AUTHOR
What? She's a witch. Of course she is.

NARRATOR
But the princesses were being all vain... I don't really feel sorry for them.

AUTHOR
Ah... You're on to me. You're a clever one.

NARRATOR
Thank you. (AUTHOR gives her another page) Then the witch spotted her next victims.

(Two servants, Flim and Flam, chant "Fight Fight Fight!" as a mean Princess named BERTHA holds down another Princess named KATE)

BERTHA
Look... KATE the Great says she wants to eat a worm.

FLIM AND FLAM
Eat! Eat! Eat!

KATE
No thanks. I'm not hungry.

BERTHA
Oh yes you are.

(WITCHY enters)

WITCHY
Hello there.

FLIM AND FLAM
Witch! Witch! Witch!

BERTHA
What do you want?

WITCHY
No, the question is what do you want?

BERTHA
Huh?

WITCHY
I am here to grant you a wish.

FLIM AND FLAM
Wish! Wish! Wish!

BERTHA
You my fairy godmother?

FLIM AND FLAM
(laugh)
Ha ha ha.

WITCHY
Something like that.

BERTHA
Cool. A wish huh? I can get anything I want?

WITCHY
Yes, you'll get what you deserve.

BERTHA
I wish for... A bag of gold.

FLIM
(clears her throat)
Uh-hum.

BERTHA
No wait. Two bags of gold.

FLAM
(holds up 3 fingers)
Uh-hum.

BERTHA
3 bags! Big ones.

FLIM AND FLAM
Gold! gold! gold!

WITCHY
Very well... Eat that worm and your wish will come true.

BERTHA
What?

WITCHY
Eat the worm and you get your wish.

FLIM AND FLAM
Eat! eat! eat!

BERTHA
Shut up you two…

FLIM AND FLAM
(whisper)
Gold gold gold.

BERTHA
Fine I'll do it.

(BERTHA makes faces - but eats worm)

BERTHA (CONT.)
Now where's my gold?

(MONSTER appears with 3 bags)

WITCHY
There's your gold - now you just have to catch her.

(MONSTER runs. BERTHA, FLIM and FLAM run after MONSTER. They can continue to run and chase during the following)

KATE
Thank you.

WITCHY
For what?

KATE
For helping me.

WITCHY
I wasn't helping you - I was helping me.

KATE
Thanks anyway.

WITCHY
Why were they picking on you?

KATE
They don't like that I'm smart I guess. I always make them look bad in school. They call me KATE the Great because the teacher thinks I am so great. I just like to learn. I sometimes wish I could play dumb but no one can be as dumb as them so I gave up trying. I can at least make the teacher happy - I will never make them like me.

WITCHY
They're not worth it. They're a waste of food.

KATE
Then why did you give them gold?
(MONSTER runs through with BERTHA behind)

FLIM AND FLAM
Run! run! run!

WITCHY
They didn't get it yet.

(WITCHY leaves)

KATE
I just want to do something great with my life. I really do want to be Kate the Great. I want to build the biggest building the kingdom has ever seen... One that will touch the sky. Or build wings that will make me fly through the clouds. I want to do something amazing that no one has ever seen. I want to be truly great... But in a good way. Not some great ruler who lives off the suffering of others. Or someone who gets rich by stealing or hurting. I want to be a good kind of great. A kind, kind of great. A great someone who makes this kingdom a better place for us all.

(KATE exits. AUTHOR hands a paper to NARRATOR)

NARRATOR
So this witch is off to a good start. She has tripped her tricks and prepared her trap. Now for the witches... Wait wait. No mention of Kate the Great?

AUTHOR
What do you mean?

NARRATOR
She seems important.

AUTHOR
No... all that stuff she said... I think she got it from another play... I don't think I wrote that.

NARRATOR
Probably not; it was too good.

AUTHOR
What?! That's it. I am writing you out of the script.

NARRATOR
No you can't - you....

(AUTHOR rips the page. NARRATOR can't speak. AUTHOR leaves and NARRATOR does over-dramatic silent crying and exits)
