THEATRE-(summer season)

This is a very visual show with a lot of physical comedy.

 

The Enchanted Forest is a very visual park.  For those who wish to know what is being said in a few of the places we have voice-overs, we have enclosed the following text.  Most scenes do not have voice-overs.

 

HANSEL AND GRETEL (in Storybook Lane)

WITCH: Come closer my dearies.  Come closer my dearies and see if the oven is hot.

HANSEL: No. No. Gretel.  No. No. Gretel.  Stay away.

GRETEL: Hansel, I'm scared.  Hansel, I'm scared.  What can I do?

HANSEL: Stay away Gretel.  Stay away Gretel.

 

WITCH'S HEAD (in Storybook Lane Snow White and the Seven Dwarves' area)

WITCH: Boil, boil, bubble and brew, a sleeping potion I will brew.

From an apple red and white, I'll cause the end of Snow White.

 

THREE BEARS: (in Storybook Lane)

Somebody's been sitting in my chair and broke it all to pieces.

Somebody's been eating my porridge.

Let's go up to the bedroom and see if somebody's there.

 

BLACK BIRD PIE SHOPPE SONG (in Old World Village)

(Pre-show has big blackbird inviting guests in and then introducing the singers.)

Sing a song of six pence a pocket full of rye.

Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.

When the pie was open the birds began to sing

Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king.

(sung again, faster.)

 

PINOCCHIO SCENE (in Old World Village)

BLUE FAIRY: To reward you for your good heart Pinocchio, I will forgive every time that you did not tell the truth.  Boys who have a good heart and love their parents, as you love Geppetto, deserve praise, even if they are not perfect examples of good behavior.  Be honest and do your best and you will be happy.  I have faith in you Pinocchio and I now make you a real boy.

PINOCCHIO: (wakes up) I'd better get up and help Geppetto.  I feel kind of different this morning.  Look at me!  Papa, wake up!  Look at me!

GEPPETTO: What is it, Pinocchio? What's the matter? Oh! Pinocchio! You're a real boy, a real boy!

PINOCCHIO: How can this be Papa?

GEPPETTO: Oh, Pinocchio, when boys who behave badly turn over a new leaf and become good, they have the power to change themselves and bring happiness to their families.  Why just last night before I fell asleep I was saying to myself, "I never realized when I created Pinocchio from a piece of wood how much I would love him.  He seems almost like a real boy.  And that is my only wish; that Pinocchio would be a real live boy instead of a puppet made out of wood.  (falls asleep)

 

PEOPLE TALKING FROM UPPER WINDOWS IN OLD WORLD VILLAGE

This is a very random dialogue with the Old Man telling the women talking to be quiet.

The women continue to gossip and tell the old man to mind his own business.  (It is just background as you walk through the street, not a "show".)

 

CHALLENGE OF MONDOR- Mondor the Wizard says,” Oh worthy one, at last you’ve come. The good little drumlins need your help to save them from the monsters of the dark. Aim at their blue medallions where their evil power is stored. The challenge is on.  Go to your destiny.”
