The Crystals of Rock and Roll

(The title is kind of subject to change. I'm not sure what else to call it, though, and it's the best fit. =P)

Enjoy reading this play! You can either simply picture the scenes happening in your head, or you can make your own puppets and perform it yourself with friends! I don't mind. Just tell me about it, and let me know how well you like this story. ^_~

Introducing the players of our show:
  • Leslie (Me)
  • Tyler (Annette)
  • Isabella
  • King Elvis
  • Random
  • Some Dude
  • Guardian of Rock
  • Guardian of And
  • Guardian of Roll
  • Vampire gang
  • Flame


Flame: Hello and welcome, everybody! We’ve got a great show for you tonight. Just sit back, relax, and if any of you get out of your seats or don’t enjoy the show, I will personally come over there and rip your head off!
Tyler: Don’t worry, folks. Flame has anger management issues. She’s taking a workshop for that. I think...
F: Where are my assorted muffins? I’m about to lose it!
T: Oh, sorry! Coming!

(Scene 1, The Castle)

(Enter Leslie and Tyler)
Leslie: Isn’t it a wonderful day in the land of Oo?
T: Yeah, it sure is. What do you think we’ll do today?
(Alarm noises sound)
L: Oh no! It’s the alarm!
T: That must mean that something is wrong. We should go to the king and see what’s the matter.
(Enter a sickly-looking King Elvis)
L: King Elvis, what is happening?
King Elvis: (groan) I’m dying!
T: Oh dear! Is there anything we can possibly do for you, your majesty?
KE: (weak voice) Find me the Crystals of Rock and Roll.
(L and T gasp)
T: The crystals! Those will solve everything!
L: Don’t worry King, we’ll be on it. Let’s get our sister Isabella to come with us.
(Enter Isabella): Hi guys. What’s up?
L: Isabella, will you help us find the Crystals of Rock and Roll?
I: Sure. I’ll go get my things.
(L, T, KE and I all exit.)
(Enter Random): (whispers to audience) Banana.(R exits.)

(Scene 2, The Forest)

(Enter L, T and I)
I: So what is our first stop, anyway?
T: Well, we’re looking for the Crystals of Rock and Roll, so the first crystal we need to find must be Rock.
L: I sure hope we find it soon. This forest is creeping me out.
(Mysterious, scary hissing noise off-stage)
L: (gasp) What was that?
(Enter F, hissing)
L, T and I: Ahhh! A vampire!
F: Who are you, and how dare you intruders trespass on my forest?
T: We’re sorry! All we’re trying to do is look for the Crystal of Rock.
(Enter R) Banana!
L, T, I and F: Who are you?
R: I am Random. (Pause) Banana! (R exits)
F: Okaaaay... Anyway, did I hear you guys say you’re looking for the Crystal of Rock?
I: Uh-huh.
F: Oh, well it’s right over there.
L: Oh, thank you.
F: Can I go with you? I bet I can be of some assistance to you guys.
L: Yeah, sure. You can come along.
(All pretend to walk, approach Guardian of Rock, a tiger shaped statue)
T: Well, here’s the Guardian of the Crystal of Rock. The statue looks so life-like...
(Guardian roars. The 4 adventurers scream in surprise.)
Guardian of Rock: Who disturbs my slumber? Who are you puny mortals?
T: Um, we are, uh, Tyler the Humble, uh, Leslie the Meek, Isabella the Small, and...
F: And I am Flame. I don’t like you.
GoR: Silence! What is it that you seek?
L: We want the Crystal that you protect, to take back to King Elvis so he can be cured.
GoR: I will give it to you...IF...you say the magic word.
F: Magic word? What magic word?
T: I don’t know the magic word.
I: May we please have the Crystal of Rock, mister Guardian?
GoR: (Pause) Yes. Yes you may. Here.
I: Thank you!
GoR: You’re welcome. (GoR vanishes)
L: Wow, that was easy. On to the Crystal of And!
(All cheer “yay!” and exit)
(Vampire gang walks on-stage) We want blooooood!!!! (Vg exits)

(Scene 3, The Volcano)

(Enter L, T, I and F)
T: Look, it’s the Guardian of And!
(Enter Guardian of And, who is a phoenix) Hello. Are you looking for my crystal?
L, T, I and F: Yes, we are.
GoA: It’s at the top of my volcano here. Good luck! (GoA exits)
I: How do we get to the top of that volcano? It’s so hot and full of lava.
F: Well, I can fly up there and get it for you guys.
L, T and I: Really? You’d do that?
F: Sure. Why did you think I was called Flame? (F exits)
L: Well, I guess all we can do is wait for her to come back.
(Vg pops out) We want your bloooooooood!
(L, T and I scream. Random puppet fight/chase ensues)
(Flame comes back) Hey! No one tries to attack my friends, except for me! Hiss!
(Vg runs away)
T: Wow, thanks for saving us, Flame. That was a close one!
I: What about the crystal? Were you able to get it?
F: Sure, don’t worry. I have it right here.
L: Fantastic! We’ve got 2 of the crystals. Now, on to the...
(R pops out and immediately interupts) Banana!
I: On to the banana?
F: Hey, it’s you again!
(Enter Some Dude) You know, you should listen to Random.
R: That’s right. Banana! (R and SD exit)
L: As I was saying... on to the Crystal of Roll, everybody!
(All cheer “yay!” and exit)

(Scene 4, The River)

(Enter L, T, I and F)
F: When are we gonna be done with this stinking mission? I have a forest to protect.
T: All we need to do now is find the Crystal of Roll, and we can go home to heal King Elvis.
(Enter Guardian of Roll, a water guardian, on opposite side of stage.)
I: Oh look, there’s the guardian, on that little island over there. (shout) Hey, Mr. Guardian of Roll! Can we please have your crystal?
GoR2: Of course, my dear adventurers. If you are able to reach my island, you can have my crystal. Here’s a tip: none of you can get it on your own.
L: Hmm. How are we going to do this?
F: Er, don’t look at me. I’m not going to fly over there. I’m afraid of water. (Voice hardens) Don’t tell anyone!
I: I’m scared too. I’ll stay here with Flame.
L: Gee, then I guess it’s just up to you and me, Tyler.
T: Hey, I know! I’m a pretty tall guy. Maybe I can act as a bridge, and you can cross me and get the crystal.
L: Brilliant, Tyler! That’s teamwork!
(T lies down and makes a bridge, L walks on top of him to island)
GoR2: Good job, adventurers. You have done well. You may have the crystal of Roll.
L: Oh, thank you very much, sir!
GoR2: Oh, by the way, I forgot to tell you. These are shark-infested waters. You may want to ska-doodle. (GoR2 exits)
(Everyone screams, L rushes back to other side)
T: Hey, don’t forget me!
(L and friends pull T up just in the nick of time, before a shark pops out of the water and chomps him!)
I: Wow, that was a close one.
R: Banana!
L: Wha? You again?
SD: I’m telling you, you should really listen to Random!
R: Yeah, I’m warning you... Banana! (R and SD exit)
L: (sigh) Whatever. We have all the crystals, everyone! Now we can go home and save the king!
(All cheer “yay!” and exit)

(Scene 5, The Finale)

(Enter L, T, I and F)
T: Well, goodbye Flame. It was... nice, having you with us on our adventures.
I: Yeah, thanks so much for helping us and saving our butts!
F: Don’t mention it.
I: I mean, you were awesome when you...
(F interrupts) Eh-vur! (Flame exits)
L: Uh, bye. Well, looks like all we gotta do now is cure Elvis
(Enter KE, wheezing) What took you guys so long? I’m almost dead!
L: Quick Tyler, crush the crystals into a healing potion!
T: Right, I’m on it!
(T makes potion off stage, comes back, gives it to KE, who turns all better.)
KE: Elvis liiiiiiives! Uh-huh-huh! Thank ya, thank ya very much!
I: Haha, well I guess all’s well that ends we... whoa! (I slips on banana peel that appears out of nowhere) Ouch!
T: Oh my gosh, Isabella! Are you okay?
L: Huh... what the heck is a banana peel doing here, anyway?
(Enter R) I TOLD you about the banana, but would anyone listen to me? NO! No one ever listens to Random! Hmph!(R exits.)
(All puppets look at each other in confusion)
KE: (sings) That is the eeeeeeend!
(All puppets come out for a curtain call bow) Thank you, thank you very much!
