Terry the Turtle: Enough, enough – I’m too old for this! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need a bit of quiet shell-

time.

 

Narrator 1: Terry the Turtle turned and paddled away, grumping loudly as he went along. Stella, Xianonming

and Xiaohong looked sad, but continued through the coral reef. But before long they swam

headlong into a shoal of multi-colored rainbow fish, that were gracefully swimming round and

round.

 

(K2 enter – K2A & K2B SR,K2C SL, and get into position to sing. Stella. Xianonming and Xiaohong sit, as before, on the rock.)

 

SONG – ‘Look at our Colors’ (Tracks 7 and 18)

With vocals

Without vocals

 

Point fingers at eyes, then run hands down body from the top to the bottom. 

K2: Look at our colors, our wonderful colors.

Arms out to the front and around, then arms out to the side. 

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

Sweep both arms up and around from the right to the left.

Maybe we fell from a beautiful rainbow

Wiggle fingers on both hands and move arms down slowly from the top to bottom.

Like splashes of paint dripping into the sea.

 

Move left arm from top to bottom, then right, then left, then right (going from right to left).  

ALL: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Arms out to the side, then sweep the arms down the body. 

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

 

Point fingers at eyes, then run hands down body from the top to the bottom. 

K2: Look at our colors, our wonderful colors.

Both arms up and around, then both arms forward and around to the front.

So bright and so cheerful, the other fish smile.

Sway arms from right to left, then right to left again.

Even at night in the light of the moonbeams

Right arm up in the air, then left arm up in the air, then sweep both arms from the right to the left. 

We glisten and shine every nautical mile.

 

 

Move left arm from top to bottom, then right, then left, then right (going from right to left).  

ALL: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Arms out to the side, then sweep the arms down the body. 

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

 

Move left arm from top to bottom, then right, then left, then right (going from right to left).  

K2: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Move left arm from top to bottom, then right, then left, then right (going from left to right).  

Dazzling yellow, crimson and cream.

Reach up then make waves downwards with both arms.

Gold and silver, aquamarine.

Arms out to the side, then sweep the arms down the body. 

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

 

(After the k2 song Stella. Xianonming and Xiaohong stand up to speak to the rainbow fish.)

 

Harris: Were you looking at our beautiful colors?

 

All Gr.K2: Aren’t they pretty!

 

Xiaohong: Well yes, but we were also wondering if anyone has seen Stella’s family. She’s lost them.

 

Sally: What do they look like? Are they sparkling shades of orange and gold?

 

All Gr.K2: Do they look like us?

 

Stella: (close to tears) Well…no. They’re sort of dull and sandy. Oh, but I miss them so much! (Xianonming

             gives Stella a hug.)

 

Rachel: Please don’t cry little starfish. We know a very wise shark called Sid. He lives in a dark cave at the bottom of the ocean.                      He might be able to help you.

 

All Gr.K2: He is very wise.

(The rainbow fish, k2, all swim offstage and Gr.1 enter to the ‘under the sea’ backing track. Stella, Xianonming and Xiaohong continued through the coral reef )

 

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, move onto the stage for the final song, then stand up as the ‘audience music’ is playing.)
