SCENE ONE

MUNCHKINLAND

Lights up, revealing side of a house protruding from wing [USL] Legs wearing striped socks and Ruby Slippers poke out from underneath.

Enter Munchkins cautiously [SR]

MUNCHKIN 1: Look! A house has dropped right on top of Morag the Witch!

MUNCHKIN 2: She won’t be bothering us anymore, then.

MUNCHKINS: Hooray! Music cue 2: Munchkins. After song ends…

MUNCHKIN 3: Let’s go and tell Glinda, the good news.

Exit Munchkins [SR]

Enter Skeeter from the house.

SKEETER: Howdy folks!

DOROTHY: [off] What’s it like outside, Skeeter?

SKEETER: It’s indescribable Dorothy! I think we might’ve died and gone to heaven.

Enter Aunt Em and Dorothy, who is now wearing ruby slippers.

AUNT EM: What are you talking about Skeeter? ‘Ere! Where’s my farm gone?

SKEETER: I have a feeling that we’re not in Kansas anymore.

DOROTHY: Gosh Toto! We must be over the rainbow, just like I wished.

Music cue 3: Enter Glinda [SR] followed by Munchkins.

SKEETER: Look! It’s an angel!

AUNT EM: We really are dead!

SKEETER: Look on the bright side, at least we’re not…[pointing down]…down there.

DOROTHY: You mean, Australia?

SKEETER: No, the other place.

AUNT EM: Oh, yes. That’s probably even hotter than Australia.

GLINDA: [pointing her wand at Dorothy] Are you a good witch, or a bad witch?

DOROTHY: I’m not a witch, at all!

GLINDA: The Munchkins said a new witch had just dropped a house on Morag, the Wicked Witch of the East. [pointing] There she is and here you are.

Dorothy and Co turn and see Morag’s legs.

DOROTHY: Oh, my! It was an accident – honest!

SKEETER: We didn’t mean to drop a house on your friend.

AUNT EM: It was the wind wot did it.

GLINDA: Morag wasn’t my friend. She was my sworn enemy. I’m Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. And the Munchkins are very happy because you’ve just freed them from Morag the witch.

SKEETER: What are, Munchkins?

GLINDA: [indicating] These are Munchkins, and this is Munchkinland. You’re now they’re heroes, and they would like to thank you.

Three Munchkins step forward. Munchkin 3 has a bouquet of flowers.

MUNCHKIN 1: We thank you very sweetly, for doing it so neatly.

MUNCHKIN 2: You’ve killed her so completely.

MUNCHKIN 3: That we thank you very sweetly. [hands bouquet to Dorothy]

GLINDA: Let the joyous news be spread, the wicked old witch is dead.

MUNCHKINS: Music cue 4: Munchkins.

Ding-dong, the witch is dead.

Which old witch?

The wicked witch!

Ding-dong, the wicked witch is dead.

Wake up, you sleepy head.

Rub your eyes, get out of bed.

Wake up, the wicked witch is dead! After song ends…

Enter Mayor, Coroner and Barrister.

MAYOR: As Mayor of Munchkin City. I welcome you most regally and would like to thank you for ridding the land of Oz, of the evil witch Morag.

BARRISTER: But we must verify it legally, to establish that she is absolutely.

CORONER: Positively.

MAYOR: Physically.

BARRISTER: Undeniably.

CORONER: Reliably.

COR/MA/BAR: Dead!

Coroner examines Morag and then unrolls a scroll.

CORONER: [sings or speaks] In my capacity as coroner.
I have thoroughly examined her.

And she’s not only merely dead.

She’s really most sincerely dead.

Three little Ballerinas wobble forward on points.

BALLERINAS: [sing] We represent the Lullaby League, the Lullaby League, the Lullaby League. And in the name of the Lullaby League. We wish to welcome you to Munchkinland. [move back to their starting point]

Three little Toughs come forward, all holding lollipops.

TOUGHS: [sing] We represent the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild.

And in the name of the Lollipop Guild.

We wish to welcome you to Munchkinland. [one presents a lollipop to Aunt Em]

AUNT EM: No thanks, I’m watching my figure.

SKEETER: Watching it expand that is! [laughs]

SFX: Pyro flash.

Enter Grotbag [SL] The Munchkins draw back in alarm murmuring. The Witch! The Witch! The Witch! Grotbag snarls and clears a circle around her with her broomstick.

SKEETER: [to Glinda] I thought you said the bad witch was dead.

GLINDA: This is Morag’s sister Grotbag, the Wicked Witch of the West. And she’s much worse than Morag.

GROTBAG: Where is my dear sister? [to Aunt Em] Have you seen her?

AUNT EM: How should I know? What does she look like?

GROTBAG: She’s tall and beautiful with long red hair, and is very, very…

SKEETER: Flat.

GROTBAG: How dare you! My sister isn’t fat!

SKEETER: I said flat, not fat.

GROTBAG: Flat! What are you talking about?

GLINDA: [pointing] See for yourself.

GROTBAG: [sees Morag’s legs] Aaahh! My poor sister! Who did this to her?

AUNT EM: I’m afraid my house accidently fell on her.

GROTBAG: Then you will pay dearly for this! But first, I must retrieve her ruby slippers. [looks] They’ve gone! Where are they? Who has them?

GLINDA: Step forward, Dorothy.
