SHOW HOST optional additional SHOW HOST PRINCE (conceited) - DAMSELS: -- CINDERELLA (obsessed with cleaning) - -- SNOW WHITE (desperate to get out of the Dwarves House) - -- RAPUNZEL (conceited about her hair, sarcastic teen) - Longer Version adds: SLEEPING BEAUTY TV DIRECTOR (If some of the princesses are played by boys, introduce the boy princesses last for the comedy effect.) -o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o- A television show set. Colored lights on wall, geometric shape shadows, 1970s style deco -- See video of the Dating Game with Michael Jackson as "Prince" (ironic). Or try this simple stage set-up: Hang Deco Stuff on back curtain, use a cardboard or wood divider (or hang curtain on clothes rack) -- make sure the partition does not block corners of the audience from seeing all the actors. On one side is one stool (or throne) for the Prince, on the other side are three stools (or fancy princessy stools) for the Damsels -- So they cannot see each other! ( Or I know you, Ive walked with you once upon a dream) HOST - Indescribable. The DAMSELS give simple answers to the questions, that are easy to remember. Take plenty of time onstage for characters to show expressions with their faces and bodies as they react to things or think about things. (SNOW WHITE sits on stool and pets her bird, smiling sweetly.) HOST - Our 2nd Dazzling Damsel -- Come on out! And she is known throughout the land as having the smallest most dainty feet . CINDERELLA curtseys.) HOST - Have a seat, Cinderella our Damsel Number Two! (points backstage) Sleeping Beauty is snoring her head off backstage.
To prevent the Prince from blocking the view of the Damsels, the Prince should sit on a lower chair than the Damsels, or the Damsels should stand behind him, instead of sit. On this show three charming young damsels will be interviewed by one lonely handsome prince who is not allowed to see them until after he has chosen one to be his Dream Date.
If the actors are funny, the audience will laugh, and the actors should continue showing expression until the laughter is over, and then say the next line. Greetings and Salivations to all you Lords, Ladies and (gesture up) the Babbling Rabble in the Rafters!
The DAMSELS do not like each other so they should show jealousy or make faces at each other.
HOST (flipping through cards) - Rapunzel, Rapunzel, wherefore art thou Rapunzel .
(looks to audience ) CINDERELLA & SNOW WHITE - Rapunzel!
