Paper Bag Princess

Story

Narrator: Elizabeth was a beautiful princess. She lived in a castle and had expensive princess clothes. She was going to marry a prince named Ronald.

****Pause*** until Ronald and Elizabeth go into castle.
(Dragon walks towards castle.)

Narrator: Unfortunately, a HUGE dragon smashed her castle,

(Castle is destroyed by dragon. Ronald & Elizabeth push down castle.)

****Pause****

Narrator: And burned all her clothes with his fiery breath.

(Elizabeth takes off cape as she twirls around.)
(Clouds throw horses bones and burnt branches on path.)
(Denisha burns 4 trees – 4 clouds turn trees around.)

****BIG Pause****

Narrator: The dragon carried Prince Ronald back to his cave.

(Dragon takes Ronald down path to his cave and goes inside.)

****PAUSE **** until Dragon gets into his cave

Narrator: Elizabeth decided to chase the dragon and get Ronald back. All she had to wear was a dirty old PAPER BAG. She carefully followed the dragon to his cave.

(Elizabeth SLOWLY walks down path to the cave.)

***********************************************************************

Narrator: The Dragon was easy to follow, because he left a trail of burnt forests and horses' bones.

(Elizabeth looks at the burnt branches and horses' bones as she walks to the cave.)

****Pause****

Narrator: Finally, Elizabeth came to a cave with a large door that had a HUGE knocker on it. She took hold of the knocker and banged on the door.

(Sound effect – Elizabeth knocks on the cave door.)

****Pause**** for knocking sound

Narrator: The dragon stuck his nose out of the door and said

Dragon: "Well, a princess! I love to eat princesses, but I have already eaten a whole castle today. I am a very busy dragon. Come back tomorrow."

Narrator: The dragon slammed the door so fast that Elizabeth 2 almost got her nose caught. Elizabeth grabbed the knocker and banged on the door again.

****Pause**** for knocking sound

Narrator: The dragon stuck his nose out of the door and said

*************************************************************

Dragon: "GO AWAY!! I love to eat princesses, but I have already eaten a whole castle today. I am a very busy dragon. COME BACK TOMORROW!!"

Elizabeth: "Wait". Is it true that you are the SMARTEST and FIERCEST dragon in the WHOLE world?"

(Elizabeth lures dragon out of cave and to edge of forest.)

Dragon: "Why, yes I am"

(Elizabeth moves in front of podium.)

Elizabeth: "Is it true, that you can burn up 10 forests with your fiery breath?"

Dragon: "Absolutely!"

Narrator: The dragon took a HUGE, deep breath and breathed out so much fire that he burnt up 50 forests!

(Audience breathes out fire with dragon.)
(Fire burns front row of forest and actors wilt.)

Elizabeth: "Fantastic!

Narrator: And the dragon took another HUGE breath and breathed out so much fire that he burnt up 100 forests!

(Audience breathes out fire with dragon.)
(Fire burns 2nd row of forest and actors wilt.)

Elizabeth: "Incredible!"

Narrator: The dragon took another HUGE breath, but this time nothing came out.

****Pause**** for dragon to cough

Narrator: He didn't even have enough fire left to cook a meatball!

(Erin rolls a red ball across stage to Mrs. Caminiti.)

Elizabeth: "Dragon, is it true that you can fly around the world in just 10 seconds?"

(Elizabeth moves in front of the world.)
(1st row of forest actors take the world and wrap around them.)

Dragon: "Why, yes I can"

Narrator: Just then, the dragon jumped up and flew all the way around the world in just 10 seconds!

(Dragon runs around the world once with clouds behind him. Elizabeth waves to dragon.)

****Pause**** for dragon to go around once

Narrator: He was very tired when he got back.

*************************************************************

Elizabeth: "Fantastic, do it again!"

Narrator: The dragon flew around the whole world in just 20 seconds!

(Dragon runs around the world twice with clouds behind him. Elizabeth waves to dragon. Then clouds return to bench.)

****Pause****

Narrator: When he got back he was too tired to talk, so he lay down and went right to sleep. Elizabeth walked over the dragon to check if he was in a deep sleep.

(Fire: make snoring sound by rubbing rhythm sticks.)

Elizabeth: "Hey, dragonnnnnn. Dragon. Psssst, dragon"

(Elizabeth whispers to dragon.)

Narrator: The dragon didn't move at all. So Elizabeth lifted up the dragon's ear and put her head right inside.

(Elizabeth asks audience to say "Hey Dragon" on the count of 3)

Elizabeth: "I want to make sure that the dragon is fast asleep. Can you help me try to wake him up by yelling HEY DRAGON on the count of three?" 1…2…3

Elizabeth: "HEY, DRAGON!!!"

(Elizabeth and audience shouting)

Narrator: The dragon was soooo tired he didn't even move. Elizabeth walked around the dragon towards the cave.

****Pause**** until Elizabeth gets to cave

Narrator: When she got to the cave she opened the door and there was Prince Ronald!!! He looked at her strangely as they walked down the path away from the Dragon's cave.

****Pause**** until they get to front of path

Narrator: They stopped at the edge of the forest and Prince Ronald said.

Ronald: "Elizabeth, you are a mess! You smell like ashes, your hair is all tangled and you are wearing a dirty old paper bag. Come back when you are dressed like a real princess." Ummm!!!

Elizabeth: "Ronald. Ronald, your clothes are REALLY pretty and your hair is very neat. You look like a REAL prince, but you are NOT… DEFINITELY NOT!!!

Elizabeth: "Ronald, you shouldn't judge people by the way they look or dress. It's what's inside that counts!

I'll tell you one thing though…

I am special,
I am beautiful,
I am wonderful, powerful, unstoppable!!!

(Sing twice)
