Description

Synopsis:

Clarissa Clutterbuck’s circus is failing, and rival circus owner Greta Grimm indulges in dirty tricks to try and put her out of business.

Clarissa’s daughter Goldilocks is robbed in the forest of all their money by Greta’s sidekick Snivel, and ends up in the cottage of The Three bears. The bears love to dance and Goldie persuades them to join Clutterbuck’s circus. But just when things are starting to look up, Greta and Snivel throw a spanner in the works.

Meanwhile, Goldilocks has two rivals for her affections. Silly Billy the animal cage cleaner who dreams of being a circus clown, and Rocco the handsome ringmaster.

SCENE ONE

OUTSIDE THE BIG TOP

Chorus are on Music cue 1: Chorus. After song ends…Exit Chorus [SL]

Music cue 2: Enter Rocco the ringmaster [SR]

ROCCO: Hiya folks! And welcome to Clarissa Clutterbuck’s Circus on the village green! I’m Rocco the Ringmaster, and I’m in charge of introducing all the fabulous circus acts we have. If you liked The Greatest Showman, then you’ll love our show. I only joined Clutterbuck’s a week ago, and I’ve already fallen madly in love with Clarissa’s beautiful daughter Goldilocks, the circus bareback rider. I haven’t told her how I feel about her yet, but I’m gradually building up to it. I’m just off to see Clarissa about my ringmaster’s whip. Bye for now! [exits SL]

Music cue 3: Enter Greta Grimm [SL]

GRETA: Greetings! I’m Greta Grimm of Grimm’s Circus and I was hoping to pitch my big top on the village green, but Clutterbuck’s Circus has beaten me to it. I hate Clarissa Clutterbuck so, I plan to make sure her circus goes bust and then I’ll take over the green permanently. [shouts] Snivel!

Music cue 4: Enter Snivel [SL]

SNIVEL: Yes, boss?

GRETA: I have a little job for you Snivel.

SNIVEL: Is it something nasty?

GRETA: Is the sea wet?

SNIVEL: Of course it’s wet, what a perfectly silly question.

GRETA: It was a rhetorical question you idiot.

SNIVEL: What does rhetorical mean?

GRETA: It means I wasn’t expecting an answer.

SNIVEL: Why bother asking a question if you don’t expect an answer?

GRETA: Never mind. I want you to join Clutterbuck’s Circus and spy on them for me.

SNIVEL: Righto boss. What shall I join them as?

GRETA: Pretend you’re a fortune teller.

SNIVEL: What do fortune-tellers do then?

GRETA: They tell people what they want to hear.

SNIVEL: How will I know what they want to hear?

GRETA: Just tell them, ‘you’re going to come into money, you’re going on holiday, and you’re going to find love.’ Oh, and give yourself a suitable stage name.

SNIVEL: Like what, boss?

GRETA: How about, Marvin the Mystic?

SNIVEL: Marvin the Mystic, I like it!

GRETA: Good now, go and gather information that will help me destroy Clutterbuck’s.

SNIVEL: Righto boss. [exits SR]

GRETA: Clutterbuck’s will be crushed and I will reign supreme! [exits SL laughing]

Music cue 5: Enter Silly Billy [SR]

SILLY BILLY: Hiya boys and girls! My name’s Silly Billy and I work at Clutterbuck’s Circus. Not that I’m silly mind, it’s just a stage name. I chose it because my name’s Billy, and I’m hoping to become a silly clown. I’ve even got my catchphrase ready. It’s ‘don’t get down,’ and the response is, ‘be a clown!’ Let’s try it then. Don’t get down! [repeat until happy] Fantastic! I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m madly in love with Clarissa Clutterbuck’s daughter Goldilocks, and I’m just waiting for the right moment to tell her how I feel about her.

Music cue 6: Enter Clarissa [SL]

CLARISSA: Stand by your beds, the star with the big top has arrived! [hoists bosom] I’ve been really busy all morning polishing dozens of clown’s shoes, which is no small feet. [laughs] Get it? Clowns’ feet are big? Never mind.

SILLY BILLY: Have you decided whether I can be a clown yet, Clarissa?

CLARISSA: Yes I have Billy, and the answer’s no.

SILLY BILLY: But I’ve been practicing my juggling and everything.

CLARISSA: Show me it then.

SILLY BILLY: Okay, I’ll just get my balls out.

CLARISSA: I beg your pardon!?

SILLY BILLY: My juggling balls. [produces three juggling balls] Watch this. [juggles Music cue 7: drops one and continues with two]

CLARISSA: You’ve dropped one Billy.

SILLY BILLY: [wafting] Sorry about that, I’m a bit nervous.

CLARISSA: I meant, one of your balls!

SILLY BILLY: [picks it up] So I have. Don’t worry, a bit more practice and I’ll be brilliant.

CLARISSA: How about a quick tumble, Billy?

SILLY BILLY: I’d rather we just stayed friends Clarissa.

CLARISSA: I meant a clown tumble you twit!

SILLY BILLY: Oh, right. [does a clumsy forward roll on the floor, then stands and wavers] Oooh! I’ve gone a little dizzy.

CLARISSA: You’ve always been dizzy, and more than a little.

SILLY BILLY: Have I got the job of clown then?

CLARISSA: No Billy, just carry on mucking out the animal cages.

SILLY BILLY: I’ll never impress a girl if I always stink of animal poo!

CLARISSA: Try wearing a better deodorant.

CLARISSA: Like what?

CLARISSA: Brut. [laughs] Brute? Animals? Do you get it Billy?

SILLY BILLY: No, but I’m hoping to.

CLARISSA: You’re not the type that girls go for Billy.

SILLY BILLY: Why not? I’m not bad looking am I boys and girls?

CLARISSA: You’re not in the same league as Rocco now, there’s a real manly hunk.

SILLY BILLY: Girls prefer a man who can make them laugh.

CLARISSA: That’s a double whammy for you then. [laughs]

SILLY BILLY: One day I’ll make circus clown, and then nobody will laugh at me. [exits]

CLARISSA: Poor deluded fool. I can sympathise with him though because I used to have trouble finding love. It’s hard to believe isn’t it? Because of my ravishing beauty most men thought I was unobtainable. In the end I had to dress down to get a man, although I did keep my socks on.
