Costa (played by Nora) and Anna (played by Samantha) contemplate entering the freaky forest.

Narrator

(from the rooftop, out of the way) Once on an island far, far away, there lived two kittens named Costa and Anna. They wanted to go on an adventure in the freaky forest. Even though their parents told them not to, they went to the edge of the forest.

Costa

Let's go in now

Anna

It's really dark in there. I don't want to go in!

Costa

Why not?

Anna

Because there might be ghosts or goblins in there.

Costa

Well, we are bad luck to other creatures so they cannot hurt us.

Anna

I'm not sure about this.

Narrator

So they went in and started to follow a small, dimly lit path. Suddenly --

Costa

Ouch.

Narrator

They bumped into a tree! (Robert behind tree, throws pine cone at Anna, front)

Anna

Ouch! Something hit me!

Narrator

Anna looked up and saw the fir tree Costa had bumped into was flinging pinecones at them.

Anna

Let's -- Ouch! -- Get out -- Ouch! -- of here!

Costa

I -- Ouch! -- agree!

Narrator

Suddenly a black figure scurried up the tree about four feet. Immediately the tree froze. Then the black figure disappeared into the darkness of the forest.

Costa

Whew, that was a close call!

Anna

I agree, but what was that thing?

Costa

I think it was a mad tree.

Anna

Not that thing -- the other thing!

Costa

Beats me.

Narrator

They continued on walking

INTERMISSION (5 minutes)
(with beverages and cookies for sale, 5 cents each)

Costa, (played by Nora), Anna (played by Samantha), and Nellie (played by Makenzie) speak to the dragon.

Narrator

They were still walking when, on the path ahead, they saw a menacing, hunched over, black figure. Suddenly Anna and Costa both let out a meow at exactly the same time. They had realized it was a dragon.

Costa

I wonder which kind it is?

Narrator

It's a Swedish Smokescreen. (Narrator holds dictionary open and reads) Sweedish Smoke-screen. An immensely fierce dragon that breathes a heavy smoke.

Anna/Costa

Ohhhhhh.

Narrator

The dragon started towards them with its mouth wide open. Then the dark shape they had seen earlier walked over to the dragon. They talked in a foreign language.

Nellie

Annako writhlada Hamuso.

Dragon

Warnekum la resta?

Nellie

Assam writhlada harnusom.

Dragon

Riposodo hanagon.

Nellie

Elqor renasem harnusom.

Dragon

Ripo.

Costa and Anna meet Nellie, while the narrator looks on from above.

Narrator

The dragon stomps away. The figure walks toward them and introduces herself.

Nellie

Hi. My name is Nellie and I am a --

Anna/Costa

Weasel!!!

Nellie

No. I'm a Norpit!

Anna/Costa

You're a what?

Nellie

I'm a Norpit!

Makenzie as Nellie

Anna/Costa

What's that?

Narrator

(again, reading from the dictionary) Norpit. Nor-pit. A weasel-like creature with a jewel in their forehead.

Costa

Oh! Well okay then! Bye!

Nellie

Wait! How about you come to my house for dinner!?

Anna

OK!

Narrator

So they all went to Nellie's house, had dinner, and then she escorted them home.

Anna

Bye!

Costa

Come visit us soon!

Nellie

I will! Bye!

Narrator

THE END!

Costa, Anna, and Nellie travel to Nellie's house for dinner.
