The Golden Football Boots - July 2012
A play by Adam, Anja, Dara, Helen, Kevin, and Naomi
Adam: Narrator and shark
Anja: Apple Juice (a.k.a AJ )
Narrator: One morning Molly is in her bed. Her dad comes into the bedroom. His name is Butchy.
Butchy: You have to drink your apple juice. I need to go and wake your brother. [Exit]
Molly is just about to pick up the juice when all of a sudden, and to her surprise, it starts talking!
Apple Juice: Do you want to go on an adventure to find a present for your brother? You do remember it’s his birthday!?
Molly: OH MY GOD! You talk!
A.J: Of course I talk, silly billy. How else you do you think I communicate with people?
Molly: This is the best thing ever. Let’s go!
A.J: But where will we find a gift?
Molly: I know! We can go to the forest because my dad goes there to hunt, he’s a butcher. I know it because sometimes I go with him.
Molly and A.J both skip off the stage
Narrator: And so they set off on an adventure to the forest.
Conor is lying in bed. His dad comes into the room and wakes him. He gets up and walks to his window and looks out.
Conor: Look, there’s Molly skipping into the forest. Is that a carton of apple juice that she’s with??
Butchy: WHAT? That was the juice I brought to her this morning. C’mon Conor we have to go after them.
Conor isn’t happy!
Conor: Awwww, but it’s my birthday.
While skipping through the forest Molly and A.J came across a lake. On the other side of the lake they can see two beautiful golden eggs. They are about to jump in and swim across when suddenly, a shark jumps up.
Shark: You won't get across this lake ha ha ha. I want to eat everybody.
A.J: I don't think so. You're not getting away with that.
And suddenly, A.J squirts apple juice into the shark's eyes so he can't see and they both swim across the lake.
Narrator: In the meantime, Butchy and Conor arrive at the lake.
Butchy: Don’t worry, I can sort this shark out. Lucky I have some meat on me. Fetch!
(Throws the meat)
Conor: This is the worstbirthday ever! It’s not even Molly’s birthday and we’re looking for HER. (Keeps playing with his football)
Back to Molly and A.J.
Molly: There’s the golden eggs. Let’s go and get them.
Giant: (from behind the stage curtain in a loud booming voice) FEE FI FO FUM. YOU CAN’T TAKE MY GOLDEN EGGS! PAY ME SOME GOLD. HA HA HA HA!
Butchy and Conor arrive too.
Butchy: I shall slaughter you giant....... AHHHHHHH!
Butchy falls to the ground, crushed by the giant’s huge hand.
Molly: Ha ha! You never knew I was a vegetarian!
A.J: Hey giant. Inside my carton there’s golden juice, how about that?
While A.J is distracting the giant Molly runs and grabs the golden eggs. She stands on them and they crack. The giant has lost his power. The hand is thrown out to the centre of the stage.
Everyone: Yay, he’s dead.
Molly picks up the football boots that were inside the eggs and hands them to Conor.
Molly: Happy birthday Conor. Sorry it took so long.
Conor: Thanks Molly, I can wear them at my soccer party.
Scene ends with everyone at Conor’s birthday party having loads of fun.
Happy birthday Conor!
