Mr:True love? True love!! When love is free it aint worth a dime. Great we will all just have to sleep the rest of our lives. True Love?

 

SCENE ENDS

 

 

Scene 2

 

Narrator:16 years later one groovy girl wakes up on her 16th birthday she is the prettiest fabbest most retro stylin chick in all the land.

 

 

Mr:Good morning sunshine the earth says hello.

 

Mrs:How's the birthday girl this morning?

 

Sleeping B:Morning mom, dad. Do I get my presents now?

 

Mrs:Of course you do. Here they are! (Hands presents)

 

Sleeping B:Wow thanks Mom and Dad a membership to green peace what I've always wanted. And a whole new selection of seeds to grow more plants this is awesome!! (Reaches for third gift) Who's this from?

 

 

Mrs:We're not sure a secret admirer maybe?

 

Sleeping B:You think so? (Opens gift) Wow a thorn bush and a really rare one!

 

Mr:No don't touch it!!!

 

Sleeping B:OW!! That hurt I pricked my fing... (Falls asleep)

 

Mrs:Oh no the gift it's happen.... (Falls asleep)

 

Mr:Great like things could get worse.... (falls asleep)

 

(All around them extras begin falling asleep)

 

Narrator:So it came to be that a once groovy psycadelic retro country became a breading ground for sleep. Where once the sounds of protestors and The Beatles rang throughout the land now came even breathing and the occasional rattling snore. The groove had moved, retro bounced outta there and colours lost their tie-dye. But was their hope would true love find its way across the vines that grew around sleeping beauty's bedroom or would it be pricked by the thorns and deflate.

 

Scene 3

 

Narrator:A few years passed and the people slept on. Many men passed through the land and the legend of the sleeping beauty spread. Many attempted kissing her all failed.

 

Extras(Pass through trying to kiss the sleeping beauty and wake her) Music played in background)

 

Narrator:Until a young prince from the green peace movement arrived. Prince Eco.

 

Prince Eco:(Walks on singing badly) Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away!! Now it looks as though they here to stay... (stops singing abruptly) (looks around) Could this vine covered window be the place I've searched so long for. Could It? Is this the slumbering land with the sleeping beauty?

 

Narrator:I don't know about you buddy but there not too many lands where the people are knocked out solid and a beautiful chick lies sleeping in a vine covered room. Does one really have to spell it out for you.

 

Prince Eco:Right you are better get to it then.

 

Narrator:That's the object of the story

 

Prince Eco:(‘climbs vine') (lots of grunts and moans) hardly (grunt) seems (moan) worth all this (heavy panting) effort. (reaches top) Finally she had better be gorgeous.

(Approaches bed) Wow no lies she's a looker. (Aside) But of course I'm here for her great conversation skills and lively personality. Because I love her and am going to rescue her from eternal slumber. (Leans over bed and kisses sleeping beauty) Hmm not much of a kisser but then she is asleep.

 

Sleeping B:(Yawns and stretches) Who has come to wake me from my slumber. (looks at prince eco) Oh its you. My love!! (throws herself into his arms)

 

Prince Eco:Well that was relatively easy.

 

Narrator:And they all lived happily ever after, until global warming and general pollution but that my friends is another story.

 

The End
