Script

This is the first third of the script.

(CLASS enters and takes its places, perhaps with a bit of noise and excitement. CAMP COUNSELORS step forward.)

CAMP COUNSELOR #1 (wearing baseball cap, with a whistle around neck. Blows whistle, and CLASS comes to order): Okay, campers. Settle down. This is your last night at Mother Goose's Character Camp. Please give it up for Mother Goose!

(CLASS applauds as MOTHER GOOSE steps forward)

MOTHER GOOSE: Thank you, Nursery Rhymers. You've made me very proud this week, trying so hard to treat each other well. Let's give a round of applause to your amazing camp counselors!

(ALL except COUNSELORS applaud)

CAMP COUNSELOR #2: Thank you, Mother Goose. Our campers can't wait to share with you everything they've learned.

CAMP COUNSELOR #3: So let's get started right away with Little Bo Peep. 
(pause as everyone looks around) 
Hey, where's Little Bo Peep?

CAMPER #1: Looking for her sheep. She lost them.

COUNSELOR #3: Again? That's seven times!

CAMPER #2: It's what she does.

CAMP COUNSELOR #4 (looking at clipboard): Okay, let's go with, uhÉ Jack and Jill! What happened to them, and what did we learn?

CLASS (chants):

Jack and Jill 
Went up the hill, 
To fetch a pail of water; 
Jack fell down, 
And broke his crown, 
And Jill came tumbling after.

Song 1

   

CLASS (sings):

We know the tale of Jack and Jill 
They slipped and took a nasty spill 
They fell and let out quite a yelp 
Come on, let's go, they need our help.

Let's help them both back on their feet 
And give them something good to eat 
We'll mend their pail as good as new 
And fix Jack's crown with Super Glue*.

Be kind 
Be kind 
Help folks in a bind 
Step on up and do what you can do. 
Be kind 
Be kind 
Soon you're gonna find 
Other people will be kind to you.

So what's the moral of this tale 
Of Jack and Jill and their sad pail? 
Next time they're eager for a drink 
Maybe they should use the sink!

Be kind 
Be kind 
Help folks in a bind 
Step on up and do what you can do. 
Be kind 
Be kind 
Soon you're gonna find 
Other people will be kind to you. 
Other people will be kind to you.

COUNSELOR #1: As we've seen at camp, there are many ways to show good character.

COUNSELOR #2: One is working hard and trying your very best.

COUNSELOR #3: Take Peter Piper. He didn't stop until he'd picked a whole peck of pickled peppers!

CAMPER #3: What IS a peck?

(ENTIRE CLASS looks at each other and shrugs.)

MOTHER GOOSE: Nobody knows, dear. The important thing is that he kept trying.

COUNSELOR #4: Just like our Itsy Bitsy Spider.

CLASS (chants/sings):

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout 
Down came the rain and washed the spider out. 
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain 
And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.

SPIDER: That's right! You think a little rain can stop these lightning-fast legs? (runs in place) Not a chance!

 Song 2

   

CLASS (sings):

The spider kept on trying 
When the raindrops washed him out. 
The spider kept on trying 
And he didn't quit or pout. 
If the spider can do it 
I can do it too 
Try my hardest every time is what I have to do.

(CLASS rocks out)

You're too little is what they said. 
Give up now, go back to bed.

No! said the spider, no no no! 
I can do it and I'll show you so!

Get the memo, it's time to stop. 
You're washed out and you're washed up.

No! said the spider, no no no! 
I can do it and I'll show you so!

The spider kept on trying 
When the raindrops washed him out. 
The spider kept on trying 
And he didn't quit or pout. 
If the spider can do it 
I can do it too 
Try my hardest every time is what I have to do.

COUNSELOR #1 (looking at clipboard): Now let's hear from the Pussycat.

COUNSELOR #2: I haven't seen Pussycat today.

PUSSYCAT (standing up/entering): Here I am!

CLASS:

Pussycat, pussycat, 
Where have you been?

PUSSYCAT:

I've been to London 
To visit the Queen.

COUNSELOR #3: Really? You've been in London?

COUNSELOR #4: Did you get the Queen's autograph?

PUSSYCAT: Well, no. I lied. I've been in the mess hall sleeping under a table.

CLASS (shouts): Pussycat! You need to tell the truth!

(This concludes the first third of the script.)
