The Three Sillies
Mavis (Young Woman) – Oh Mother, look at that horrid mallet! What if Percy and I were married, and had a son, and we sent him down here to draw the beer when he got old enough, and the mallet fell on his head…it might kill him!
Mrs Farmer (Mature Voice) – Just look up there at that horrid mallet! What if Percy and Mavis were married, and had a son, and we sent him down here to draw the beer when he got old enough, and the mallet fell on his head…it might kill him!
Mr Farmer (Mature Voice) – Just look at that horrid mallet Percy. What if you and Mavis were married and had a son, and we sent him down here to draw the beer when he was old enough, and the mallet fell on his head. It might kill him!
Percy (Young Voice) – I’ve travelled many, many miles and seen many things, but I’ve never met such big sillies as you three before! I shall start on my
Lady (Open to interpretation) – I want her to go up and eat the grass. She doesn’t realise that she’ll be quite safe. I shall tie a string
Traveller (Open to interpretation) – Well I’m very much obliged to you. I should never have thought of doing it that way!
The Wolf And The Seven Little Kids
Mother – Dear Children, I have to go into the forest. Be on your guard against the Wolf. If he comes in, he will eat you all. He might disguise himself; but you will know who he is because he has a rough voice and big, dirty feet.
Wolf (Low and Gruff) – Mother is here children. Open the door. I have presents for all of you from the forest. x2 versions, one with the wolf’s natural voice and one with a disguised voice.
The Happy Family
Father Snail (Open to interpretation) – The manor house has probably fallen to ruin. Or perhaps our burdocks have grown up over it so that they can’t get out. However, there is no rush about it. You are always in such a hurry, and the little one is beginning to be the same. He keeps climbing up the stalks. It gives me a headache to watch him!
Mother Snail (Open to interpretation) – You mustn’t scold him. He creeps so carefully. He gives us so much pleasure; we have nothing else to live for. But have you thought…where shall we get him a wife? Don’t you think perhaps there might be some of our species left in the distance of the burdock forest?
Gnat (Any Male Voice) – We have a wife for him. At a hundred human paces from
The False Collar
Collar (Mature Male) – Oh! You are certainly a fine dancer, with good long legs like that. How well you stretch them out. It is the most graceful performance I have ever seen. Nobody can dance as well as you.
Garter (Young to Mature Woman) – Don’t come near me! You look just like those men-folks.
Little Red Cap
Mother (Open to Interpretation) – Be good and quiet Little Red Cap. Walk nicely. Make sure that you stay on the path, otherwise you might hurt yourself or fall and spoil Granny’s goodies. And when you get there, be sure to say Good Morning nicely, and don’t mess about and waste time looking around.
Red Cap (Young Gentle Female Voice) – I’ve got some goodies for Grandmother. Yesterday was baking day, so my mother has sent me with some cakes to make Grandmother feel better. She’s not very well you see
Wolf (Same as The Wolf And The Seven Little Kids)
Grandmother (Elderly Mature Voice) – I am in bed, come straight in Little Red Cap.
Huntsman (Mature Male Voice) – My my, the old lady is snoring mighty loudly today! I know she is under the weather. I think I shall check if she needs anything.
