SCENE ONE

THE VILLAGE OF WHEYSIDE

Trott’s dairy is [USR] adjoining it is a cowshed with a practical door. Music cue 2: Chorus. After song ends…Exit Chorus [SR]

Enter Simon [SL]

SIMON: Hiya folks! I’m Simon Trott! Who wants to be on my team? Great! And as I’m the team leader, you must do everything I say, okay? Simon says, turn to the person on your left and say, I like you in a very special way. Now, turn to the person on your right and say, I like you in a very special way too. There, that should help keep things nice and friendly.

GIANT: Fee-fi-fo-fum!

SIMON: You’re a big pain in the bum! That’s Blunderbore the giant, who lives in a big castle above the clouds. Beats me how it stays up there, seeing as clouds are just condensed water. I’m guessing it must be some kind of magic.

GIANT: Fee-fi-fo-fum!

Fleshcreep, fill my empty tum!

SIMON: Fleshcreep’s the giant’s slave and he’s a nasty piece of work.

Enter Jack [SR]

JACK: Hello Simon!

SIMON: Hi, Jack!

JACK: Who were you talking to just now?

SIMON: [indicating audience] My Simon says, team.

JACK: You’ve got a big team today, Simon.

SIMON: Speaking of big things. I’ve just been telling everybody about the giant.

JACK: I hope you haven’t been frightening them too much.

SIMON: No Jack – the giant will do that all by himself.

JACK: Let’s forget about the giant and talk about nice things for change.

SIMON: Like what for instance?

JACK: Like me, being in love.

SIMON: All right Jack, who is she this time?

JACK: Her name’s Jill. [sighs – hand on heart]

SIMON: You don’t feel a sudden urge to go up a hill to fetch water, do you?

JACK: No Simon – why do you ask?

SIMON: No reason really.

JACK: Jill’s the daughter of Squire Moneybags, and I’ve asked her to marry me.

SIMON: That’s a bit quick, isn’t it? Even for a panto.

JACK: It’s the real thing this time Simon.

SIMON: It always is with you Jack.

JACK: The only problem is her father insists she marries somebody rich.

SIMON: That lets you out then.

JACK: But I love her terribly.

SIMON: Maybe you ought to practice a bit more then.

JACK: I’d like to, but it’s not easy with her father watching her every move.

SIMON: It’s probably your moves he’s worried about.

JACK: And how’s your love life Simon?

SIMON: My new girlfriend thinks I’m a bit of a stalker.

JACK: I didn’t know you had a girlfriend!

SIMON: She’s not technically my girlfriend.

JACK: What do you mean?

SIMON: I haven’t actually asked her out yet.

JACK: No wonder she thinks you’re a stalker.

SIMON: When will I get to meet this, Jill?

JACK: She said she might call round later.

SIMON: What’s she like around cranky old cows?

JACK: I’m sure her and mum will get along just fine.

SIMON: I meant Buttercup!

JACK: She’ll love Buttercup just as much as we do.

SIMON: Nobody could love her more than mum, though.

JACK: I think she loves that old cow more than she does us. Remember the time she thought Buttercup had a cold?

SIMON: I’ll never forget it. She gave her my bed and made me sleep in the cowshed.

Enter Jill [SR]

JACK: Jill!

JILL: Jack!

JACK: I’ve missed you terribly, Jill.

JILL: I’ve missed you even more, Jack.

SIMON: When was the last time you saw each other?

JACK: Half an hour ago.

SIMON: Half an hour ago!?

JILL: We hate being apart even for a minute.

JACK: [smoochy] I love you Jilly willy.

JILL: [smoochy] And I love you Jacky wacky.

SIMON: I feel sicky-wicky! See you all later team! [exits inside]
