a kids play



Act 1 scene 1 chorus with Ash.

Ash: We are at the beginning of a magicial journey. As you start traveling down the road of life, remember this: there are never enough comfort stops. The places you are going are never on a map. And once you get that map out, you won’t be able to refold it no matter how smart you are. So forget the map, roll down the windows, and whenever you can, pull over and have a picnic with a Princess.

Act 1 scene 2 Princess Rose and Crom Goth
What happens? Princess Rose meets the Alien Crom Goth and after some bickering they become friends.

Princess Rose: Ohhhhh, my stomach. I should never have eaten that burnt toast last night. I always say that burnt toast does not agree with a Princess’ stomach. Well, I’ll just have to get the servants to clean up the mess I made in the royal washroom, that’s what it’s like to be me, never a dull moment. Who am I? Why I’m Princess Rose and this better be a bad dream.

Princees Rose lies down on floor and falls asleep. Enter Cron Goth

Cron Goth: Humans bow down before me.

Princess Rose: Daddy I never gave the horse your crown. I swear.

Crom Goth: I am not your Daddy. I am Crom Goth the Conqueror.

Princess Rose: Well I am Princess Rose the tired, so get out boggy man.

Crom Goth: I am no boggy man. You will lead me to your king.

Princess Rose: Get out of my castle before I send my guards to get you.

Cron Goth: Cron Goth is afraid of no guards, bow down before me.

Princess Rose: Guards! Guards! Guards!

Cron Goth: Where is your King? He will knell before Crom.

Princess Rose: Mom Dad call the Army an alien is in the Castle.

Cron Goth: I’m no ordinary Alien I’m a Prince.

Princess Rose: You a prince I don’t believe it! Guards!

Cron Goth: Well I don’t believe you are a Princess! Guards!

Princess Rose: What are you doing?

Cron Goth: Waiting for your pretend guards to show up.

Princess Rose: You think that I’m lying. That I am lying. How dare you!

Cron Goth: In my world we would call you a malarker, a nottly malarker.

Princess Rose: Well In my world. And this is my world they call Me Princess Rose!

Cron Goth: Say it don’t splanaker it!

Princess Rose: Well I never! Guards! Where are those guards?

Cron Goth: What a malarker.

Princess Rose: Wait it’s Monday night.

Crom Goth: What is Monday night?

Princess Rose: They always watch the jousting matches on Monday night.

Crom Goth: What are Jousting matches.

Princess Rose: Help, help, help!

Cron Goth: Maybe you are a princess. Back on Orkon we captured a Morkon Princess and she was the only thing that scared me. That is before you.

Princess freezes, circles the alien, and then speaks.

Princess Rose: You are afraid of me?

Cron Goth: Yes you do. If I weren’t would I just stand here? I would slambazzle your kanazzle into oblivion.

Princess Rose: Well you should be afraid of me. I am an unguarded princess who else in what kingdom would let their only daughter be left alone unprotected and….

Starts to cry.

Cron Goth: What is this? What are you doing? Is the water from of your crombots going to destroy me?

Princess rose: What? No, no, no, just let have a minute.

Cron Goth: What is a minute?

Princess rose: I need to be alone Crom Goth can you visit me again some other time?

Crom Goth: Crom Goth suppose to take over earth tomorrow, how about next day?

Princess Rose: Come to dinner. I’d love my parents and the especially the guards to meet you.

Princess Rose presents her hand and Crom Goth licks it.

Crom Goth: Ummm.

Princess shakes her head and both walk in separate directions.

Momo: Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me? You must be because I don’t see any other tigers here.

Mr. Surprise: Don’t be so dramatic.
