Grade 1’s assembly song

 

Kindness is a muscle

Work it out, gotta hustle

We kids will show you the way

Gotta flex it everyday

 

 

Kindness is a muscle

Work it out, gotta hustle

We kids will show you the way

Gotta flex it everyday

 

Thump, thump, your heart will grow

Everytime your kindness shows

Beat, beat, your heart gets strong

When you sing the kindness song.

 

Grown ups, if you are mean

Don’t think it goes unseen

We act the way you do

So be kind every day too.

 

Kindness is a muscle

Work it out, gotta hustle

We kids will show you the way

Gotta flex it everyday

 

Kindness is a muscle

Work it out, gotta hustle

We kids will show you the way

Gotta flex it everyday

 

Kindness is a muscle, we already know

And like a muscle you can make it grow

By being kind even when we’re mad

And helping others when they’re sad.

 

It’s easy, it’s peasy, it’s how we’re made.

We don’t know hate, we don’t throw shade

If someone’s different it’s the greatest thing

‘Cos being different makes us sing.

 

Thump, thump, thump

Your heart knows what’s right

Beat, beat, beat

Kindness gives us might.

 

Grown ups, follow our lead

Some love is all you need

It’s easy, watch our moves

And dance to our kindness grooves.

 

Kindness is a muscle

Work it out, gotta hustle

We kids will show you the way

Gotta flex it everyday

 

Kindness is a muscle

Work it out, gotta hustle

We kids will show you the way

Gotta flex it everyday

 

I’ll break it down

One more time for you

Because I got more

kindness rhymes to do.

 

There’s a couple more things

To keep in mind

And so many reasons

For being kind

 

It’s all about EXERCISE

OR A PRIZE

WE DON’T WANT REWARDS

I’S ACTING AS WE SHOULD

BECAUSE BEING KIND FEELS GOOD!

 

Kindness is a muscle

Work it out, gotta hustle

We kids will show you the way

Gotta flex it everyday

 Under the sea

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

Let’s dive and swim with sea animals.

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

You can swim and play with sea animals.

 

Under the sea, the ocean.

This is home with coral reefs.

Under the sea, the ocean.

There’re families of fish.

 

Hello! Jellyfish look like umbrellas.

Hello! Octopuses with no backbones.

Hello! White sharks with razor sharp teeth.

Hello! Seahorses that make a heart.

Here we go!

 

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

Let’s dive and swim with sea animals.

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

You can swim and play with sea animals.

 

Under the sea, the ocean.

This is home with coral reefs.

Under the sea, the ocean.

There’re families of fish.

 

Hello! Turtles swim very fast.

Hello! Mr. Crabs that pinch all day.

Hello! Scallops that open and shut.

Hello! Starfish that open clams.

 

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

Sea, sea, sea that’s the sea!

Verse 1 – Grade 1:

Stella the starfish, tell us your story

How did you come here, where are you from?

You look so lonely, where is your family?

You look so sad. Where do you belong?

 

Stella:

I was up in the bay

Where I often would play.

But a crashing wave hit me

And washed me away.

 

Verse 2 – Stella:

Then as I tumbled and I couldn’t see and

Bubbles were rushing over my head.

When the wave passed I found myself holding

On to a conch shell on the sea bed.

 

Grade 1:

So the magical shell

Has come here as well.

Though your story is sad,

We are sure we can help

 

All: Stella the starfish…

Stella: Please will you help me?

All: Stella the starfish

Stella: Where is my family?

All: Stella the starfish…

Stella: Please will you help me?

K2: Look at our colors, our wonderful colors.

The ocean’s our home, but it’s hard to believe.

Like splashes of paint dripping into the sea.

 

ALL: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Surely we’re the most colorful fish you’ve ever seen.

 

K2: Look at our colors, our wonderful colors.

So bright and so cheerful, the other fish smile.

Even at night in the light of the moonbeams

We glisten and shine every nautical mile.

ALL: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Surely we’re the most colorful fish you’ve ever seen.

Sid: Down at the bottom of the deep blue sea,

Someone is calling, calling for me.

If they have travelled to my cave beneath

It must be important. I’d better take my teeth.

 

Chorus

All: Being a shark has many advantages.

Fishies and folks tend to keep away.

But with the job comes responsibility.

Sid the Shark will save the day!

 

Verse 2

Sid: Down at the bottom of the deep blue sea,

I can hear, I can taste, I can smell, I can see.

I know what you’re thinking and where you’re from.

All: They swam through the coral reef…

 

They passed the rainbow fish…

They did not stop snapping at the turtle…

 

They ignored the clownfish…

 

Then Xianonming spotted a shipwreck…

 

…a shipwreck there at the bottom of the sea.

 

(All echo – whispered)

…at the bottom of the sea…

…at the bottom of the sea…

…at the bottom of the sea…

TRACK 10 OLD LONDON DOCKS

Old London Docks, the next morning. Deadeye enters carrying a crate, and stops toaddress the audience.

Grade 5 enter upstage with their baskets as Deadeye is talking to the audience and sit on the stage blocks.

DEADEYE: It’s a beautiful morning here at the Old London docks. There’s a smell

of the sea in the air. And something else I can’t quite make out. Is it

adventure… or danger? But for Jack and Liza, the race is on to find a

missing map and a missing mother!

Deadeye takes his crate and exits as Jack, Liza and Fiddlesticks enter.

GRADE 5  react to what is being said on stage.

JACK: Come on, Liza. We have to rescue mum from those pirates!

LIZA: But Jack, how do we know those pirates are behind all this?

JACK: Let’s see. We discover a treasure map, then a band of dodgy pirates

turn up. And this morning we wake up to find the safe blown up, the

map gone – and Mum, too!

LIZA: Yes, I suppose you’re right. We’ve got to find that ship – it must be here

at the docks somewhere. What did they call it?

JACK: The Curry Bean! Shouldn’t be hard to sniff out! Come on, Fiddlesticks.

Let’s hunt pirates!

ALLE (5A): (addressing the audience) I hope that they realize what they’re letting themselves in for.

TRACK 11 COD PLAY ON

They exit as Captain Cod and Admiral Hornhonker enter from opposite sides and

meet unexpectedly centre stage.

HORNHONKER: Ah, Captain Cod, I presume? I am Admiral Horatio Hornhonker. I

believe you were expecting me?

COD: Indeed, Sir. I am to captain your first official voyage! And may I be the first to congratulate you

on becoming an Admiral, Sir.

HORNHONKER: Oh, thank you – you are a sweetie! Well, it was Mummy’s idea, actually.

She thought I should get a job, so I chose Naval Admiral. Sounds great fun, doesn’t it, and I look so

good in the uniform!

COD: You mean you’ve just joined the Navy and already you’re an Admiral? It must be because

you’re an outstanding sailor, Sir. An extraordinary leader of men; an inspiration to all who serve under

you.

HORNHONKER: No, I think it’s because Daddy is the Commander in Chief!

GRADE 5: That’s not fair!

HORNHONKER: Well, let’s not hang about here. Where’s my thingy?

COD: Your what?

HORNHONKER: My thingy – you know – the whats it. The big thing made out of wood,

goes up and down a lot.

COD: You mean your ship?

HORNHONKER: Ship! Yes, that’s it! Gosh, I’m going to have to get used to all these new technical terms!

CHRISTIAN (5A): He’s not very bright is he!

COD: Your ship is The Crunchy Frog, Sir, and we set sail within the hour. Perhaps you would like to

inspect your crew?

HORNHONKER: Oh yes. After all, we’re all together out there on the open… the open…

COD: Sea?

HORNHONKER: Sea! That’s it! I really must make a note of that!

COD: Right, crew, fall in!

TRACK 12 CREW PLAY ON #1

The sailors of the Crunchy Frog enter and line up. Lookout Lofty, obviously short

sighted with a pair of thick glasses, is facing backwards. Cutthroat Clegg is at the

end of the line holding a saw.

COD: Crew of the Crunchy Frog! Attention! Say welcome to the Admiral!

SAILORS: Each sailor salutes as they shout out Welcome Admiral.

HORNHONKER: (inspecting the sailors) What a fine bunch of sailors, Captain Cod.

(Seeing the back of Lofty’s head) but I think this one needs a shave – he’s got hair all over his face!

COD: That’s the back of his head, Sir. Lofty, turn around. You’re facing the wrong way.

GRADE 5: Aye, yay, yay (shaking heads looking at the audience in despair)

LOFTY: (turning and looking in the wrong direction again) Oh, I’m sorry Sir. I didn’t see you

there!

COD: Over here, you fool!

LOFTY: (Turning to Cod and squinting) Ah, yes, sorry about that, Sir.

JONAS (5A): I think that he needs his eyes testing!

(Getting up close to squint at Hornhonker) And how lovely to meet your wife! How do you do, madam?

Lofty kisses Hornhonker’s hand, who pulls it away in horror.

HORNHONKER: No, no! I’m the Admiral! What’s your name, sailor?

LOFTY: Lofty, Sir.

HORNHONKER: And what do you do?

LOFTY: I’m the ship’s lookout.

CARLENY (5B): I don’t think that his poor eyesight’s up to the job.

HORNHONKER: Excellent. (Moving along) And who are you?

CUTTHROAT: Cutthroat Clegg. I’m the ship’s barber, Sir.

HORNHONKER: Cutthroat the barber – not a name that inspires trust, is it?

CUTTHROAT: I’m also the ship’s surgeon, Sir.

JUN-HWAN (5A): He’s multi-talented!

HORNHONKER: Oh, do you have medical training?

CUTTHROAT: No, (holding up a large saw) but I’ve got a saw!

LOFTY: Cutthroat Clegg is the best ship’s surgeon you’ll ever find, Sir.

CUTTHROAT: That’s right! Sore finger, aching ear, gammy leg. I can get rid of all those.

HORNHONKER: You can cure all those?

CUTTHROAT: No, I just cut ‘em off!

HORNHONKER: Yes, well let’s hope I don’t get a headache!

(Turning to Cod) Captain Cod, I see I’m in safe hands.

LOFTY: Talking of hands, I’m afraid we’re two short, Sir.

HORNHONKER: Oh dear, is there a height limit for sailing?

LOFTY: No, I mean we haven’t got enough hands.

HORNHONKER: I’ve always managed with two.

COD: No, we need two more members of the crew. Never mind, Sir, you just go aboard ship. The

crew will show you where we are docked.

HORNHONKER: I think I can find the way to my own ship, Captain!

YUKI (5B): I’m not so sure about that.

HORNHONKER: (pointing off the wrong way) This way, chaps!

He strides off and exits, whilst the others just stare at him. We hear a loud splash offstage and

Cod and the crew react.

TRACK 13 SFX SPLASH

COD: (Despairingly) Go and fish him out, lads.

SAILORS: Aye, aye, captain!

TRACK 14 CREW PLAY OFF

The sailors all exit following Admiral Hornhonker, apart from Lofty who marches in

the opposite direction. Captain Cod grabs him by the shoulders and points him back

in the right direction whilst he is still marching, and he exits. Wally and Pratt the

health and safety officers enter, dressed smartly in suits and ties, and approach

Captain Cod.

WALLY: Excuse me, Captain, we’d like a word with Admiral Hornhonker.

COD: (Looking off at where Hornhonker has fallen) I’m afraid he’s right in the

middle of something at the moment.

CHIARA (5C): Yeah, the middle of the sea!

PRATT: Busy, is he?

COD: (Looking off again) Up to his neck in it, actually! Can I help, gentlemen?

PRATT: Arthur Wally and Albert Pratt, health and safety officers.

WALLY: Here’s our card. (Pointing at his name on the card) I’m A Wally.

PRATT: (Pointing at his name on the card) And I’m A Pratt!

COD: I’m sure you are. Look, I’m in a hurry – The Crunchy Frog sails on the midday tide!

WALLY: Oh, no it doesn’t!

JOSHUA (5C): O oh! This doesn’t look good for Captain Cod and his crew!

PRATT: Not without a certified certificate of certain ship shape sea safe insurance!

COD: A what?

PRATT: A certified certificate of certain ship shape sea safe insurance!

COD: That’s easy for you to say! Anyway, I’ve already got insurance – I’m with the

Admiral!

WALLY: That’s not good enough, is it Mr. Pratt?

PRATT: Certainly not, Mr. Wally. No ship leaves these docks without a full health and safety check.

COD: Oh, very well. Come along, then. This way to the Crunchy Frog.

Cod leads Wally and Pratt off and they exit.

TRACK 15 SCUTTLE & SLACK PLAY ON

Scuttle and Slack enter as cockle and mussel salesmen. Scuttle is carrying Slack in a wheelbarrow full of shellfish.

SCUTTLE: (shouting out his wares) Cockles and mussels!

SLACK: Hawaii Five-O!

SCUTTLE: (shouting out his wares) Cockles and mussels!

SLACK: Hawaii Five-O!

SCUTTLE: Slack, it’s not “Hawaii Five-O”. It’s “Alive, alive-o”. That’s how Molly Malone used to sell them, and she’s the expert.

SLACK: Not any more, Scuttle. That Molly Malone wasn’t best pleased when we pinched her barrow, was she?

SCUTTLE: You can say that again. She had a face like a tortured trout, didn’t she!

SLACK: And it’s a good job Molly’s brother Lever didn’t catch us.

SCUTTLE: Molly Malone hasn’t got a brother called Lever.

SLACK: She has – she was calling him when we pinched her cockles. She kept shouting “Lever Malone, Lever Malone!”

SCUTTLE: Well, we got away with it. No thanks to you, just sat there in the barrow. My arms are nearly dropping off.

ROBIN (5C): He should meet Cutthroat Clegg – He’d soon sort him out!

SLACK: You know your problem? You’re all cockle and no muscle!

SCUTTLE: You can talk, you bone idle jellyfish!

SLACK: What do you mean? I spent hours scraping these cockles of that boat’s bottom!

SCUTTLE: Yes, and now we’ve got to spend hours scraping them off your bottom! Get up out of there! (He lifts Slack out of the barrow) And look at those mussels – we’ll never sell them. They’re tiny!

SLACK: That’s easily sorted. (He lifts the barrow up and down as if doing exercises) Hup, two, three, four! Hup, two, three, four!

SCUTTLE: What are you doing that for?

SLACK: Exercise makes your muscles grow!

SUYOUNG (5C): (shaking head) They’re regular comedians these two. 

SCUTTLE: That’s it. I’ve had it with the shellfish business. We need to find work.

SLACK: But I hate work! I hate it! I hate it! I hate it! And you know what three hates are?

SCUTTLE: No?

SLACK: Three hates are twenty four!

Cod enters, listening to Scuttle & Slack.

SCUTTLE: Whether you hate it or not, you have to work to get ahead.

SLACK: But I’ve already got a head!

COD: Did I hear that you two are looking for work?

SLACK: (pointing at Scuttle) He is.

SCUTTLE: Shut it, Slack. Yes, we certainly are.

COD: Then this is your lucky day! How would you two like to go to sea?

SLACK: Go to see what?

COD: No, go to sea! I can offer you both a job in the King’s navy.

SLACK: No thanks. I get seasick just watching goldfish.

COD: Haven’t you ever wanted to get to the high seas?

SCUTTLE: I once reached the high seas when I was a young lad.

SLACK: But then his voice broke! (They both laugh)

SCUTTLE: Sorry, Captain, but it just sounds too risky.

COD: That’s a shame, lads. Never mind, why don’t you have a drink on me!

Cod hands a tankard each to Scuttle and Slack.

SOPHIE (5B): He’s up to something!

SCUTTLE: That’s very kind of you.

SLACK: Bottoms up!

They both drink to the bottom of the tankard, then let out a simultaneous “ahhh”.

COD: And I think you’ll notice a nice shiny shilling at the bottom of your tankards. Which means you’ve taken the King’s shilling and been press ganged into my crew!

AUSTIN (5C): (Shaking head) I don’t think that Captain Cod has made a very wise choice employing these two. 

SCUTTLE: (picking up the coin and holding it up) Look, he’s right. You devious codfish!

SLACK: (looking worried and holding his stomach) Oh dear! I’ve swallowed mine!

SCUTTLE: How do you feel?

SLACK: Like a slot machine!

SCUTTLE: Maybe I should pull your arm and hope for a jackpot.

COD: Either way, you’re now a member of my crew – whether you like it or not! Now get over to The Crunchy Frog – we’re about to set sail!

Kiki (5C) – I hope that he knows what he’s let himself in for. 

Scuttle puts Slack into the barrow and wheels him off stage. Jack, Liza and

Fiddlesticks enter.

JACK: Excuse me, Captain, we’re looking for a ship – it’s urgent.

LIZA: It’s called The Curry Bean. Have you seen it?

JACK: Our mum’s been kidnapped by pirates – and they’ve taken her on that ship!

COD: Now hold your sea horses! There’s no pirates round these parts – I’d know if there were. I’m Captain of The Crunchy Frog.

LIZA: Then you could take us on your ship to find her. Those pirates can’t have got far.

COD: Now look, there aren’t any pirates. Big rats – yes, I’ve got some of those! Pesky blighters, nicking my cheese and nibbling my crackers. Ah, talk of the devil!

TRACK 16 RAT MUSIC #1

Some rats enter, running around cheekily and causing mayhem. GRADE 5 exit with looks of disgust on their faces.

Fiddlesticks chases them off.

JACK: Fiddlesticks, our very own rat catcher!

LIZA: And we’ll bring him with us if you let us come aboard.

COD: Very well, young scallywags, it’s a deal. (They shake hands and paws)

And so they sailed from sea to sea

With bold adventures guaranteed!

TRACK 42 WONGA PLAY ON

Everyone clears to the sides of the stage (Tick, Tack and Toe move to the left of CS, falling to their knees and bowing their heads as Chief Wonga enters majestically from DSR and strikes a strong pose centre stage).

WONGA: Greetings, strangers, to the island of Lumbago. I am chief Wonga of

the Wonga Tribe. I trust my people have welcomed you politely?

All kneel up to look at the Chief.

GIBBET: Oh, yes, your chiefness.

WONGA: Good. And now… you are all going to die!

ALL: Die?

WONGA: Yes, you must all be executed!

The tribal guards point their spears at the prisoners.

ALL: Executed?

FENDER: But why? We have done nothing wrong, your worshipfulness.

WONGA: You have broken the one sacred law of Lumbago! No treasure hunting!

Pirates and treasure are forbidden here, and you have violated this

rule.

PEARL: Whatever! We haven’t come all this way just to be executed. You may

think you’re the chief of Lumbago, but to me you’re just a pain in the

neck!

She fishes the haddock out of her knickers, goes over to Wonga and hits him on the head with it.

Everyone looks shocked.

TRACK 43 SFX BONK

We hear sound effects as Pearl gives Wonga a final forceful hit on the head. Wonga looks dazed and confused, stood staring out into the audience and gently swaying as his memories start to come back.

WONGA: Where am I? Who am I? What am I doing here? (Looking at Pearl)

Pearl?

PEARL: How do you know my name?

WONGA: My precious pearly queen! It’s me!

He takes off his chief’s hat and kneels on one knee before her. Everyone gasps.

PEARL: Stanley? Stanley Periwinkle?

JACK & LIZA: (amazed) Dad?

PEARL: But I thought you were lost at sea! I’d given up all hope!

JACK: What are you doing here, Dad?

LIZA: And how did you become Chief Wonga?

Tick – Peter (2A)

Tack – Kiki (Coco – 2A) 

Toe – Paige (2B)

 

PING (Daniel): Chief Wonga arrived as a stranger many moons ago.

PONG (Khai): Brought chest of treasure to hide beneath our sand.

WIFF (Oliver): Then falling coconut hit head hard.

WAFF (Kaedan): Lost all memories. Not know who he was.

TICK (Peter): We in need of strong brave leader.

TACK (Kiki): Made him Chief Wonga – lead our tribe well for many years!

TOE (Paige): Now we return your rightful crown.

Toe places a pirate captain’s hat on Wonga’s head.

ALL: A pirate?

PEARL: Uncle Deadeye was right, children. I should have told you the truth

about your father. But I didn’t want you following in his footsteps and

ending up lost at sea, too. You see, your father was…

WONGA: Captain Swaggersword!

JACK & LIZA: (very impressed) Wow!

WONGA: I only wish I could remember where I buried the treasure. Without my map we’ll never find

it!

Scuttle and Slack enter with the map and treasure chest.

GROG: The treasure chest!

They put the treasure chest down and try to recover, looking puffed out and in pain.

SCUTTLE: We just need to unlock it with our skeleton keys.

Scuttle gives a large bunch of keys to Slack who tries to unlock the chest with one of them.

SLACK: (in a sing-song voice) It’s not working!

SCUTTLE: Try a different key.

SLACK: (in a very high sing-song voice) It’s not working!

SCUTTLE: There are two funny keyholes and nothing fits.

WONGA: That’s because Jack and Liza have had the keys all the time!

JACK: (Looking down at his medallion) Our medallions!

LIZA: Our medallions are the keys! Come on, Jack!

They take off their necklaces and use them as keys. The treasure chest opens.

ALL: Wow!

TRACK 44 REDBEARD PLAY ON

Redbeard, Louie and Squawk enter.

REDBEARD: Just in time, Louie! I think we’ll take the treasure now.

LOUIE: By lucky chance, our ship The Curry Bean has run aground on the

other side of the island.

REDBEARD: So if you’re willing, boys, I’ll forget our little disagreement. We can take the gold and sail away from here!

BAGGYWRINKLE: Not so fast, pinky!

BLUNDERBUSS: It’s time we had a new leader.

BARNACLES: And a new second mate.

BULLYRAG: We want Swaggersword and Pearl.

BROADSIDE: Not forgetting Jolly Jack!

BUNGHOLE: And Lethal Liza!

BILBOE: So how about it, folks?

BILGE: Will you join the pirates of The Curry Bean?

JACK & LIZA: Can we, Mum?

PEARL: Well, Stanley? I mean, Captain Swaggersword?

WONGA: We’d be delighted, lads!

PIRATES: Hooray!

WONGA: We’ll take Cod and his crew back to London, and then it’s off to adventure!

JACK: But what about the treasure, Dad?

LIZA: It wouldn’t be fair to keep it all ourselves.

WONGA: There’s plenty for everyone. We’ll share the booty, and start a new adventure – as a pirate

family! What do you say, crew?

ALL: Aye, aye, Captain!

(Freeze as Deadeye enters and addresses the audience one final time.)

 

DEADEYE:                               

So mother, brother, sister, dad,

Are back together – aren’t you glad?

And though my story’s all but done

COD: Crew of the Crunchy Frog! Attention! Say welcome to the Admiral!

Sailors: (Every sailor salutes as they shout out their greeting Welcome Admiral.

HORNHONKER: (inspecting the sailors) What a fine bunch of sailors, Captain Cod.

(Seeing the back of Lofty’s head) but I think this one needs a shave – he’s got hair all over his face!

COD: That’s the back of his head, Sir. Lofty, turn around. You’re facing the wrong way.

Grade 5: Aye, yay, yay! (shaking heads in despair and looking at the audience).

LOFTY (Harry): (turning and looking in the wrong direction again) Oh, I’m sorry Sir. I didn’t see you there!

COD: Over here, you fool!

LOFTY (Harry): (Turning to Cod and squinting) Ah, yes, sorry about that, Sir (Getting up close to squint

At Hornhonker) And how lovely to meet your wife! How do you do, madam?

Lofty kisses Hornhonker’s hand, who pulls it away in horror.

HORNHONKER: No, no! I’m the Admiral! What’s your name, sailor?

LOFTY (Harry): Lofty, Sir.

HORNHONKER: And what do you do?

LOFTY (Harry): I’m the ship’s lookout.

HORNHONKER: Excellent. (Moving along) And who are you?

CUTTHROAT (Yeonsoo): Cutthroat Clegg. I’m the ship’s barber, Sir.

HORNHONKER: Cutthroat the barber – not a name that inspires trust, is it?

CUTTHROAT (Yeonsoo): I’m also the ship’s surgeon, Sir (freeze.)

Someone in Gr.5 : He’s multi-talented!

HORNHONKER: Oh, do you have medical training?

CUTTHROAT (Yeonsoo): No, (holding up a large saw) but I’ve got a saw!

LOFTY (Harry): Cutthroat Clegg is the best ship’s surgeon you’ll ever find, Sir.

CUTTHROAT (Yeonsoo): That’s right! Sore finger, aching ear, gammy leg. I can get rid of all those.

HORNHONKER: You can cure all those?

CUTTHROAT (Yeonsoo): No, I just cut ‘em off!

HORNHONKER: Yes, well let’s hope I don’t get a headache! (Turning to Cod) Captain Cod, I see I’m in safe hands.

LOFTY (Harry): Talking of hands, I’m afraid we’re two short, Sir.

HORNHONKER: Oh dear, is there a height limit for sailing?

LOFTY (Harry): No, I mean we haven’t got enough hands.

HORNHONKER: I’ve always managed with two.

COD: No, we need two more members of the crew. Never mind, Sir, you just go aboard ship. The crew will show you where we are docked.

HORNHONKER: I think I can find the way to my own ship, Captain! (pointing off the wrong way – DSR) This way, chaps!

He strides off and exits, whilst the others just stare at him. We hear a loud splash offstage and Cod and the crew react shocked.

DEADEYE: The ships came closer, inch by inch

The pirates nor the sailors flinched

They stood their ground, they stayed in place

Until they all were face to face!

The pirates and sailors all turn at once to face each other.

REDBEARD: Get ‘em!

As the music changes, a brief comical slow motion fight begins between the pirates

and sailors.

PEARL: (shouting) STOP! (The fighting stops immediately) What’s all these shenannygoats? I’ve never seen such naughtiness! Behave yourselves, the lot of you! (look guilty)

Jack, Liza and Fiddlesticks enter.

JACK & LIZA: Mum!

PEARL: What are you lot doing here?

JACK: Looking for you!

LIZA: Did those pirates hurt you?

PEARL: Pirates? A bunch of brainless baboons more like! And as for that Captain Redbeard: Captain

Candyfloss chops, I call him! He’s dirty and smelly and stupid… and… and he’s standing right behind

me, isn’t he.

(Sailors – sailor pose with feet slightly apart and hands behind back)

REDBEARD: I knew I couldn’t trust a wench! Get over there with your brats!

LOUIE: May I present the scourge of the seven seas, Captain Redbeard!

PIRATES: Arrr!

FATHOM (Shi Yu): Redbeard?

FENDER (Emma): Isn’t his beard a bit – well – p…

LOUIE: Don’t say the “p” word in front of the Captain.

BLUNDERBUSS: What a nice ship you have here!

BARNACLES: What sort of mileage do you get out of her?

FLUKE (Hugh): 50 miles to the galleon!

REDBEARD: Excellent! I think I’ll take it.

COD: Not without a fight, you won’t! I’m Captain of this ship, and I’ll defend it

to the hilt!

TRACK 29 SFX TWANG

We hear a twang as he pulls out his sword to find that its end has been chopped off.

The pirates laugh at him.

SQUAWK: Looks like the hilt is all you’ve got!

WALLY: Ah, yes, we did that. I’m afraid it broke all the health and safety rules,

didn’t it Mr. Pratt?

PRATT: Yes, Mr. Wally. You could have had someone’s eye out with that! Now

it’s nice and safe.

COD: Nice and safe? It’s pointless!

REDBEARD: These gentlemen are quite right. There’s no need for violence. Let’s let

the crew decide! If you want to keep your lives and become a pirate,

come and join me!

The sailors, Scuttle and Slack all move across the stage to join Redbeard and the pirates.

COD: Think of your King and country! Think of your mothers! Think of your duty!

The sailors, Scuttle and Slack all move back to join Hornhonker and Cod.

REDBEARD: I’ll never make you do any jobs around the ship!

The sailors, Scuttle and Slack all move across the stage to join Redbeard and thepirates.

COD: I’ve got the key to the biscuit cupboard!

The sailors, Scuttle and Slack all move back to join Hornhonker and Cod.

REDBEARD: I’ve got a treasure map!

The sailors all move across the stage to join Redbeard and the pirates. Scuttle and Slack stay in the middle, looking unsure of what to do.

SCUTTLE: What should we do? The crew are revolting!

SLACK: Oh, they’re not that ugly!

SLACK: Come on, let’s join them and be pirates!

SCUTTLE: But this is mutiny!

SLACK: I know, it’s new to me too, but we’ll soon get the hang of it!

Scuttle and Slack join the pirates.

REDBEARD: Good choice, lads. (To Cod, Hornhonker and the Periwinkle family)

Not joining us?

JACK & LIZA: Never!

REDBEARD: Very well – take ‘em below!

Vicky (4C) & Matthew (4B) take them off SR and they exit. The others gather around Redbeard.

REDBEARD: So, my new recruits. You’ve chosen the pirates life. It’s glorious!

ALL: Hooray!

REDBEARD: Dangerous!

ALL: Oohh!

REDBEARD: Exciting!

ALL: Ahhhh!

REDBEARD: And most importantly, we do it all with style!

TRACK 30 PIRATICAL STYLE

Backing track

REDBEARD:

BLACK HEARTED SQUID SUCKING BUCCANEERS,

WE’RE TAKING OVER SO GIVE THREE CHEERS!

WE ARE AS VILE AS OUR UNDERGARMENTS,

WE HAVEN’T WASHED ‘EM IN YEARS!

LIFE ON THE SEA CAN BE SUCH A TRIAL,

WE HAVE – PIRATICAL STYLE!

Go on lads, tell ‘em all about it!

ALL: WHO IS THE SCOURGE OF THE SEVEN SEAS?

WHO CAN DO JUST AS THEY DARN WELL PLEASE?

FLOATING AROUND ON A PIRATE GALLEON,

SEARCHING FOR TREASURE WITH EASE!

WHO HAS A HOOK AND A CROOKED SMILE?

WHO’S DIRTY DEEDS ARE SO VERSATILE?

WHO’S GOT A BITE LIKE A CROCODILE?

WE HAVE – PIRATICAL STYLE!

REDBEARD: So, all those wanting to be in my pirate crew – say “Arr!”

ALL: (shouting) Arr!

WHO IS THE SCOURGE OF THE SEVEN SEAS?

WHO CAN DO JUST AS THEY DARN WELL PLEASE?

FLOATING AROUND ON A PIRATE GALLEON,

SEARCHING FOR TREASURE WITH EASE!

WHO HAS A HOOK AND A CROOKED SMILE?

REDBEARD: (shouting) Piratical style!

ALL: Arr!

Gr.3 exit SR

Blackout.

SCENE 8: THE ISLAND OF LUMBAGO

The island of Lumbago. As the music changes, the lights come up to reveal tropical

palm trees set in the sandy beach. One central tree has a large wooden sign reading

“Lumbago”. Deadeye enters.

  1. Pirates enter, talk, then exit.
  2. Pearl, Jack & Liza enter, talk, then exit.
  3. Cod & Hornhonker enter, talk, then exit.

Sailors enter SR – Wally & Pratt lead, then sailors follow.

LOFTY (Harry): It’s all right, fellas! I’ve found a friendly native. Excuse me, Sir, any idea

where we are?

WALLY: That is a signpost, you short sighted buffoon! Oh, Mr. Pratt. I think

we’re the only ones saved from the wreck!

PRATT: What a disaster, Mr. Wally. I’m starting to think we shouldn’t have given

that ship a certificate.

CLEGG (Yeonsoo): Now is everyone all right? Anyone hurt? Any injuries?

FATHOM (Shi Yu): I think I’ve broken my arm.

FENDER (Emma): I think I’ve twisted my ankle.

FLUKE (Hugh): And I got stung on the ear by a jellyfish!

CLEGG (Yeonsoo): Right, I’ll just get out my first aid kit. (He pulls out his saw)

FATHOM (Shi Yu): Actually, I feel a lot better now.

FENDER (Emma): Totally fine, thanks!

FLUKE (Hugh): It’s a miracle!

GROG (Brandon): (seeing and picking up the treasure map) Look, Gibbet. It’s the treasure map!

GIBBET (Johnny): Brilliant, Grog! Now we can go treasure hunting!

WALLY: Oh, dear, me! That sounds very risky and unsafe.

GROG (Brandon): Rubbish! All we need to do is follow the map and we’ll all be rich.

The cheeky monkeys enter and stand at one side looking at the sailors.

LOFTY (Harry): And look, here’s some friendly natives to help us!

PRATT: They’re not natives! They’re…

ALL: …Monkeys! Aghh!

TRACK 36 MONKEY CHASE #3

Wally, Pratt and the sailors on the stage left  run off DSL screaming, followed by the cheeky monkeys. All of the sailors to the right of him exit SR, followed by the monkeys. The map is dropped on the floor (wait at side of stage)

Scuttle and Slack enter. Slack is carrying a spade.

Scuttle, Slack & treasure chest.

TRACK 39 MONKEY CHASE #4

Various characters enter the stage in their different groups: The pirates (enter DSL), the sailors (enter DSC from the SR door)and the Periwinkle family (enter DSR), all chatting. When they see each other, they all start talking noisily to each other. “What are you doing here?”, “I thought we were the only ones here!” etc. The noise grows to a climax.

JACK: (shouting loudly) QUIET! Listen! (drumming from offstage)

LIZA: Talking drums! It must be the natives!

CLEGG (Yeonsoo): Lofty, you’ve studied talking drums. Can you tell what they’re saying?

LOFTY (Harry): Yes! (He looks as though he is listening carefully and thinking hard until the drums stop.) They say “Boom-diddy, boom-diddy,boomboomboom!”

TRACK 40 NATIVES PLAY ON

The tribal guards Ping, Pong, Wiff and Waff enter carrying spears. They stand

looking strong and menacing.

FATHOM (Shi Yu): It’s the natives!

FENDER (Emma): They don’t look very friendly, do they?

FATHOM (Shi Yu): Do you think they speak English?

FENDER (Emma): It doesn’t look like it!

HORNHONKER: You leave the talking to me. (He approaches each one in turn and raises his palm) How!

PING: (raising his palm) How!

HORNHONKER: (raising his palm) How!

PONG: (raising his palm) How!

HORNHONKER: (raising his palm) How!

WIFF: (raising his palm) How!

HORNHONKER: (raising his palm) How!

WAFF: (raising his palm) How!

LIZA: I didn’t know you could speak Lumbago!

HORNHONKER: Oh, it’s easy when you know how!

The tribal women, Tick, Tack and Toe enter.

TICK: Welcome, strangers, to our peaceful island!

TACK: We are Tick, Tack and Toe of the Wonga tribe.

TOE: And these are the Wonga guards, Ping, Pong, Wiff and Waff.

HORNHONKER: (To Pong) Oh, pleased to meet you Wiff

PONG: No. I Pong!

WIFF: And I Wiff!

HORNHONKER: Never mind – it’s probably the heat!

PONG & WIFF: (To each other, despairingly shaking heads) Tourists!

PING: We come quickly to greet you, for on Lumbago, night falls quickly!

Sudden blackout. The visitors all scream.

ALL: Aghh!

The lights suddenly come back on.

WAFF: Luckily, on Lumbago, nights are very short!

TICK: And so we welcome you, strangers!

TACK: Welcome to the island of Lumbago!

TOE: In the sea of Sciatica!

TRACK 41 LUMBAGO

TRACK 42 WONGA PLAY ON

Everyone clears to the sides of the stage, falling to their knees and bowing their

heads as Chief Wonga enters majestically, striking a strong pose centre stage.

WONGA: Greetings, strangers, to the island of Lumbago. I am chief Wonga of

the Wonga Tribe. I trust my people have welcomed you politely?

All kneel up to look at the Chief.

GIBBET (Johnny): Oh, yes, your chiefness.

WONGA: Good. And now… you are all going to die!

ALL: Die?

WONGA: Yes, you must all be executed!

The tribal guards point their spears at the prisoners.

ALL: Executed?

FENDER (Emma): But why? We have done nothing wrong, your worshipfulness.

WONGA: You have broken the one sacred law of Lumbago! No treasure hunting!

Pirates and treasure are forbidden here, and you have violated this

rule. But I will be merciful!

Everyone breathes a sigh of relief.

GOOSENECK (Daniel): Oh, thank you, your highness!

WONGA: I will let you choose the method of your death. You can be burnt at the

stake or have your heads chopped off.

FLUKE (Hugh): What a choice – steak or chops!

WONGA: Or you could be shot at dawn.

FATHOM (Shi Yu): That’s no good – I don’t get up till ten o’clock!

PEARL: (Approaching Wonga and getting cross) Now look here, Minger.

WONGA: Wonga!

PEARL: Whatever! We haven’t come all this way just to be executed. You may

think you’re the chief of Lumbago, but to me you’re just a pain in the

neck!

She fishes the haddock out of her knickers, goes over to Wonga and hits him on the

head with it.

WONGA: Stop it! You’re giving me a haddock!

TRACK 43 SFX BONK

We hear sound effects as Pearl gives Wonga a final forceful hit on the head. Wonga

looks dazed and confused, stood staring out into the audience and gently swaying as

his memories start to come back.

WONGA: Where am I? Who am I? What am I doing here? (Looking at Pearl) Pearl?

PEARL: How do you know my name?

WONGA: My precious pearly queen! It’s me!

He takes off his chief’s hat and kneels on one knee before her. Everyone gasps.

PEARL: Stanley? Stanley Periwinkle?

JACK & LIZA: (amazed) Dad?

PEARL: But I thought you were lost at sea! I’d given up all hope!

JACK: What are you doing here, Dad?

LIZA: And how did you become Chief Wonga?

PING: Chief Wonga arrived as a stranger many moons ago.

PONG: Brought chest of treasure to hide beneath our sand.

WIFF: Then falling coconut hit head hard.

WAFF: Lost all memories. Not know who he was.

TICK: We in need of strong brave leader.

TACK: Made him Chief Wonga – lead our tribe well for many years!

TOE: Now we return your rightful crown.

Toe places a pirate captain’s hat on Wonga’s head.

ALL: A pirate?

PEARL: Uncle Deadeye was right, children. I should have told you the truth

about your father. But I didn’t want you following in his footsteps and

ending up lost at sea, too. You see, your father was…

WONGA: Captain Swaggersword!

JACK & LIZA: (very impressed) Wow!

WONGA: I only wish I could remember where I buried the treasure. Without my map we’ll never find it!

Scuttle and Slack enter with the map and treasure chest.

GROG (Brandon): The treasure chest!

They put the treasure chest down and try to recover, looking puffed out and in pain.

GOOSENECK (Daniel): Are you all right?

SLACK: Just a few chest pains!

BULLYRAG: You dug up the booty without us? How low can you sink!

SCUTTLE: Not very low, actually – we only had to dig a hole up to our knees.

SLACK: You know what they say – booty is only shin deep!

SCUTTLE: We just need to unlock it with our skeleton keys.

Scuttle gives a large bunch of keys to Slack who tries to unlock the chest with one of them.

SLACK: (in a sing-song voice) It’s not working!

SCUTTLE: Try a different key.

SLACK: (in a very high sing-song voice) It’s not working!

SCUTTLE: There are two funny keyholes and nothing fits.

WONGA: That’s because Jack and Liza have had the keys all the time!

JACK: (Looking down at his medallion) Our medallions!

LIZA: Our medallions are the keys! Come on, Jack!

They take off their necklaces and use them as keys. The treasure chest opens.

ALL: Wow!

TRACK 44 REDBEARD PLAY ON

Redbeard, Louie and Squawk enter.

REDBEARD: Just in time, Louie! I think we’ll take the treasure now.

LOUIE: By lucky chance, our ship The Curry Bean has run aground on the

other side of the island.

REDBEARD: So if you’re willing, boys, I’ll forget our little disagreement. We can take

the gold and sail away from here!

BAGGYWRINKLE: Not so fast, pinky!

BLUNDERBUSS: It’s time we had a new leader.

BARNACLES: And a new second mate.

BULLYRAG: We want Swaggersword and Pearl.

BROADSIDE: Not forgetting Jolly Jack!

BUNGHOLE: And Lethal Liza!

BILBOE: So how about it, folks?

BILGE: Will you join the pirates of The Curry Bean?

JACK & LIZA: Can we, Mum?

PEARL: Well, Stanley? I mean, Captain Swaggersword?

WONGA: We’d be delighted, lads!

PIRATES: Hooray!

WONGA: We’ll take Cod and his crew back to London, and then it’s off to adventure!

JACK: But what about the treasure, Dad?

LIZA: It wouldn’t be fair to keep it all ourselves.

WONGA: There’s plenty for everyone. We’ll share the booty, and start a new adventure – as a pirate family! What do you say, crew?

ALL: Aye, aye, Captain!

All exit

 

Note:

Get ready for the finale song whilst Deadeye (the narrator) say her/his last few lines, then when she/he says “The finest crew you’ve ever seen…” everyone on stage says:

 

DEADEYE:               So mother, brother, sister, dad,

Are back together – aren’t you glad?

And though my story’s all but done

Their brand new life has just begun!

 

And so they sailed from sea to sea

With bold adventures guaranteed!

The finest crew you’ve ever seen…

All: The pirates of The Curry Bean!”

Then sing the ‘finale’ song.

Pot Of Gold 

Track with vocals:

Backing Track

Seller 1:    Fresh fish! Come and get your fresh fish!

Seller 2:    Cockles and Mussels! Alive, alive-o!

Seller 3:    Jellied eels! Slimy and delicious!

 

All:              Travel with us on a new adventure,

Over the ocean blue.

Follow your heart and your dreams will all come true!

Waiting at the rainbow’s end,

Are treasures all untold,

So chase that rainbow, find your pot of gold!

 

Sailing away where the wind may take us,

Never know what you’ll find.

Leave all your cares and your worries far behind!

Magic happens every day,

Believe what you’ve been told,

So chase that rainbow, find your pot of gold!

 

(The company dance during a short instrumental section.)

 

Magic happens every day,

Believe what you’ve been told,

So chase that rainbow, find your pot of gold!

(So chase that rainbow, find your pot of gold!)

So chase that rainbow, find your pot of gold!

(Shouted) Of gold!


Track 7:                                   Lumbago Lullaby

Backing track

Pearl:            He used to dream about a distant land full of treasures and mystery. He called it Lumbago…

 

Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica

Where the sky is so blue

And your troubles are few

And you dance the night away!

Welcome to Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica,

So just sit and relax

On the island of dreams!


Track 17:                                    Anchors Away

Backing track

Cod:           All aboard! All aboard the Crunchy Frog! Calling at the tropical islands of the East … The mysterious islands of the West … The undiscovered islands of the South… (The music stops.) and Clacton! (Or local seaside town.)

 

Cod:           There’s an ocean of adventure we’re off to explore,

Sail the seven seas to a far distant shore.

With a western breeze a blowing, no time to delay!

Ring out the bell, boys, and anchors away!

 

All:                  Yo-ho, heave-ho, so the sailors say!

Yo-ho, heave-ho, set the sail and anchors away!

 

We are able bodied seamen, a trustworthy crew,

Boldly going forward we sail on the blue,

We have orders from our captain and we must obey,

Ring out the bell, boys, and anchors away!

 

Yo-ho, heave-ho, so the sailors say!

Yo-ho, heave-ho, set the sail and anchors away!

 

There’s a new world to discover, so join us my friend.

Over the horizon and just round the bend.

There’s a new life waiting for you, so set sail today.

Ring out the bell, boys, and anchors away!

 

Yo-ho, heave-ho, so the sailors say!

Yo-ho, heave-ho, set the sail and anchors away!

(Shouted) Anchors away!


Track 19:                        Beneath The Same Starry Sky

Backing track

Jack & Liza:    Though you may be far, I can feel you here,

I’m wishing on a shooting star

Wishing you were near

But up above the stars still shine

And say this isn’t goodbye

For in my heart I know we sail

Beneath the same starry sky

 

Jack, Liza            Though we feel alone sailing through the night

& Pearl:                      A million eyes watch over us

Shining out their light

And even though I miss you so,

I know there’s no need to cry

For in my heart I know we sail

Beneath the same starry sky

Beneath the same starry sky.


Track 30:                                    Piratical Style

Backing track

Redbeard:                   Black hearted squid sucking buccaneers,

We’re taking over so give three cheers!

We are as vile as our undergarments,

We haven’t washed ‘em in years!

Life on the sea can be such a trial,

Join up with us, it will be worthwhile,

Dig up the booty and make a pile!

We have – piratical style!

 

Go on lads, tell ‘em all about it!

 

All:                             Who is the scourge of the seven seas?

Who can do just as they darn well please?

Floating around on a pirate galleon,

Searching for treasure with ease!

Who has a hook and a crooked smile?

Who’s dirty deeds are so versatile?

Who’s got a bite like a crocodile?

We have – piratical style!

 

Redbeard:                   So, all those wanting to be in my pirate crew – say “arr!”

 

All:                             (Shouting) Arr!

Track 41:                                        Lumbago

Backing track

All:                   There is an island that lies in your dreams

Underneath tropical skies, how it gleams

There’s a gentle breeze here

Under cool palm trees here

It will soothe all your aches and your pains

And your worries away

And we hope that you stay!

 

Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica

Where the sky is so blue

And your troubles are few

And you dance the night away!

Welcome to Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica

So just sit and relax

On the island of dreams!

 

(The Natives set up a limbo pole and bring Hornhonker to the front, placing a Hawaiian lei round his neck.)

 

Limbo, limbo, limbo!

Limbo, limbo, limbo!

Limbo, limbo, limbo!

Limbo all night long!

 

(During the trumpet solo, the Natives lead Hornhonker in a brief, comical limbo dance.)

 

There’s a gentle breeze here

Under cool palm trees here

It will soothe all your aches and your pains

And your worries away

And we hope that you stay!

 

Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica

Where the sky is so blue

And your troubles are few

And you dance the night away!

Welcome to Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica

So just sit and relax

On the island of dreams!

 

Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica

Where the sky is so blue

And your troubles are few

And you dance the night away!

Welcome to Lumbago, in the sea of Sciatica

So just sit and relax

And don’t break your backs

You’re booked for a massage and wax

In Lumbago – on the island of dreams!
