Narrator 4: Xianming and Xiaohong were quickly transported into the deep blue ocean. They found

themselves swimming towards a beautiful coral reef covered with colorful dancing seaweed.

 

(Stella, Xianming and Xiaohong sit on a rock and watch the group of seaweed, PK, dancing gracefully, swishing and twisting around the stage.)

 

MUSIC – Seaweed Dance 1 (tracks 3 & 14)

(PK gracefully leave the stage. Stella, Xianming and Xiaohong remain seated on the rock.)

 

Narrator 5: Suddenly, from the coral reef, some brightly colored clown fish appeared.

 

(Play clown fish’s backing track  then fade it out when all of K1 are on stage in position. K1A enters SR and K1B enters SL and stands in two lines per class.  When all K1 are in position onstage fade out the music)

Grace: We love to laugh and play!

 

Alexandre: We dart about and joke all day.

 

ALL K1: We are the clowns of the sea.

 

SONG – The Clownfish (tracks 4 & 15)

With vocals

Without vocals

 

(Bob up and down on the spot. K1A on the right side of the stage and K1B on the left side of the stage.)

 

Verse 1

Put hands either side of the face, then put hands together and pretend to dive.

Watch us laugh and watch us play.

Make fish action, then make reindeer ears. 

We dart about and joke all day.

Both hand around mouth looking to the right.

Ha, ha, ha, ha

Both hand around mouth looking to the left.

And hee, hee, hee, hee!

Both thumbs pointing to the chest, then both arms out to the front and around. 

We are the clowns of the sea.

 

Verse 2

Both hands out and around towards the audience.

Would you like some fun as well?

Make crab snapping action with both hands, then cup hands together to mime hiding the shell.

Play tease the crab or hide the shell.

 

Both hand around mouth looking to the right.

Ha, ha, ha, ha

Both hand around mouth looking to the left.

And hee, hee, hee, hee!

Both thumbs pointing to the chest, then both arms out to the front and around. 

We are the clowns of the sea.

 

Verse 3

We’re too busy dashing, bumping,

Blowing bubbles, laughing, jumping.

When you look as daft as us

You’ve got to have a sense of humor!

                                     (slowing)

 

(Swap over lines. Back line becomes the front row and the front row becomes the back row) 

Repeat all of the above. THEN…

 

(Swap over lines again. Back line becomes the front row and the front row becomes the back row) 

 

Both hands around mouth looking to the right, then both hands around mouth looking to the left.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee!

Both hands around mouth looking to the right, then both hands around mouth looking to the left.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee!

 

Both arms out to the side, then both hands pointing to chest. 

Why are you staring like that at me?

Both thumbs pointing to the chest,

We are the clowns of the…

 

Stretch up, then crouch down.

Jump up and down in the…

Stand up again with both thumbs pointing to the chest, then both arms out to the front and around. 

We are the clowns of the sea.

Both arms stretched up and out.

(All shout) Hey!

(Loop the clownfish song as all of  k1 swim offstage. Stella, Xianming and Xiaohong stand up to talk to the tropical fish.)

Narrator 2: The trio travelled deep into the ocean and soon arrived at the mouth of a very dark and gloomy cave. Stella, Xianonming and Xiaohong were scared to go into the cave, but soon plucked up the courage to call out.

Stella, Xianonming and Xiaohong: Sid – are you there? Sid – Can you help us?

Narrator 3: Slowly – ever so slowly – a dark, mysterious shape appeared at the entrance of the cave and began

to sing.

SONG – Sid the Shark (Tracks 8 & 19)

 

Verse 1

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.

Electrical signals tell me what’s going on.

Chorus again – All sing

 

(Spoken above the music…)

Sid: What can I do to help you all?

Stella: Please Sid – help me tp find my family.

I miss them so much!

Sid: To find your family you must solve this riddle,

Listen carefully to the clues.

(Sid – singing solo) Swim through the coral reef…

(All echo – whispered) …swim through the coral reef…

Sid: Pass the rainbow fish.

All: …pass the rainbow fish…

Sid: Do not stop at the snapping turtle,

Ignore the clown fish.

All: …Ignore the clownship…

Sid: Find the shipwreck

At the bottom of the sea.

All: …at the bottom of the sea…

…at the bottom of the sea…

…at the bottom of the sea…

Narrator 4: After finishing his mysterious riddle, Sid the Shark has disappeared back into his dark cave. Stella,

Xianonming and Xiaohong looked at each other and then started on their final journey to find

Stella’s lost family.

(During the following song, Stella, Xianonming and Xiaohong cautiously swim around the stage area. They pass, in turn, the rainbow fish group, Terry the Turtle, the clownfish group, and the tropical fish. To simplify the movement, and help achieve a sense o5 ‘ journey’, each of those characters could temporarily stand from where they are seated as the trio pass by and wave their arms-  like seaweed – before sitting again.)

 

SONG – ‘Journey to the Shipwreck’ (tracks 9 & 20)

 

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…

(Stella, Xianonming and Xiaohong arrive at the shipwreck – which is either a painted mural/collage on the back wall or an object which has been positioned or uncovered during the last song.)

 

Narrator 5: The trio were amazed to find themselves at the shipwreck that Sid had sung about. They

immediately started exploring around and about.it. After a while Stella suddenly shouted out…

Stella: (with great excitement) I’ve found them! I’ve found them! I’ve found my family!

Starfish 1: We’ve been looking for you everywhere!

 

Starfish 2: We thought we’d lost you forever!

 

Starfish 3: We’re so glad we’ve found you!

Narrator 6: All the other creatures had felt the ripples of excitement through the water and, in no time at all, had gathered at the shipwreck to celebrate with Stella and her family. Then the seaweed led a special dance.

 

*********************************************************************************************************

(The seaweed and all the fish move swiftly onto the stage, ready to dance.)

 

MUSIC – Seaweed Dance 2 (tracks 10 & 21)

 

(As the dance music fades, the seaweed and all the sea creatures gracefully sit down on the stage, leaving Stella, Xianonming and Xiaohong standing alone in the centre.

 

Narrator 7: After the celebrations had finished, Stella thanked Xianonming and Xiaohong for all their help and

told them to hold tightly on to the magic conch shell.

Music: Students play suitable sound effects on their instruments, as before.

 

(Narrator 7 continues…)

Before they knew it, Xianonming and Xiaohong found themselves back home in front of their

aquarium.

(The fish tank is repositioned on stage, just in front of Stella, who now disappears out of sight, leaving the conch shell with Xianonming and Xiaohong.)

 

Xiaohong: Wow – what an adventure we’ve had!

Xianonming: But where is Stella?

Xiaohong: Let’s look in the aquarium. She might be in there.

(Both look into the fish tank.)

 

Xianonming: There’s no sign of her – she’s disappeared!

 

Xiaohong: But look – we’ve still got the magic conch shell. What shall we do with it?

 

Xianonming: We must look after it forever and ever, just in case Stella needs our help again one day.

 

(All the characters, including Stella, then stand up to get ready to perform the finale song as the ‘audience music’ is playing.)
