K-2 Presents: THE WIZARD’S REVENGE (featuring the Garbage-Throwing Machine)

garbage-Castle-2

The Kindergarten K-2 class of the Brooklyn’s Children’s School just presented their original fairy tale opera, for which the children created the story, the lyrics and the melodies:

Once upon a time there was a king, a princess and a wizard.  They all lived together in the castle.

The wizard had awful manners and wasn’t following the rules and directions of the king. This made the king very upset.

He decided to banish the wizard from the castle and sent him into the forest as punishment for being bad.

The wizard was unhappy and wanted revenge.

Ten years had passed and the wizard was ready to take on his revenge.

 

The Wizard’s Revenge


 

ONCE UPON A TIME

THERE WAS A WIZARD

WHO DECIDED TO HAVE REVENGE

 

THE KING SENT THE WIZARD

INTO THE FOREST

BECAUSE HE WAS BAD

 

FOR TEN YEARS THE WIZARD

WAS IN THE FOREST

MAKING A CURSE

 

HE MADE THE CURSE

TO SEND TO THE PRINCESS

TO MAKE HER BAD

 

ONCE UPON A TIME

THERE WAS A WIZARD

WHO DECIDED TO HAVE REVENGE

 

The wizard says a spell: Alakazam, abracadabra, I punish you to be bad.

The princess then turns bad.  She starts stealing toys from people in the town.

Then she starts taking gold and books from the king.

She even starts dumping garbage all over the castle.

The princess goes to the town to turn the people bad.  Each time she touches someone, they go bad.

They start stealing and dumping trash also.  When they touch people, they go bad too.

Soon the whole village is robbing and dumping trash all over.

The princess touches the king who also becomes bad.

The wizard watches all this bad stuff from the top of the castle.  He loves that everyone has turned bad.

 

This is Great

 

THIS IS GREAT OH THIS IS GREAT

THIS IS GREAT OH THIS IS GREAT

I’LL KEEP WATCHING CAUSE THIS IS SO GOOD

I’LL KEEP WATCHING CAUSE THIS IS SO GOOD

THIS IS GOOD OH THIS IS GOOD

THIS IS GOOD OH THIS IS GOOD

Together the princess and the king build a garbage-throwing machine.  The garbage-throwing machine throws garbage all over the castle.

The wizard is on top of the castle watching this happen.

When he starts to get covered with garbage, he decides things have gone too far.

He realizes he shouldn’t have cursed the princess.  He makes a new spell:

“Abracadabra, alakazam, I’m turning you back good again!”

This spell makes the princess good again.

The princess runs around to touch everyone to make them good.  As she touches each person, she says “poof! I’m making you good!”

This turns everyone good again.

ALL GETTING GOOD

LET’S START CLEANING UP

 

Everybody cleans up the trash and returns the stolen stuff.

As each person returns the things they have taken, they apologize and say, “I don’t know what came over me, that I took your things.”

The wizard apologizes to the king.  He says “I’m sorry I did all this bad stuff to you.”

The wizard explains that he was upset that he was banished from the town ten years ago.

He didn’t mean for it to get this bad.  He had made a big mistake.

He promises to be good if he is allowed to return to the castle.

The king tells the wizard that he may return to the town and once again live in the castle.

The wizard is so excited, he can’t wait to move home again.  He says “Thank you King! Thank you King! Thank you King!”

They all live happily ever after.

 

The end.
