An excerpt …

Characters (4): Pat, the instructor; Bob, Henry, and Rupert, the students. Pat may be played by actors of either gender.

PAT: Come in! Come on in! This is the place. Just stand right here.

BOB: Hi. I’m Bob.

PAT: Good for you. Now just wait a minute while I see who we have today. Your name?

BOB: Bob.

PAT: I was talking to him.

HENRY: Henry. My name’s Henry.

PAT: That’s too bad. We can fix that. And you?

RUPERT: Rupert.

PAT: Tell me you’re kidding.

RUPERT: No. That’s my name. My mom’s idea.

PAT: Okay. Whatever. And you must be Bob.

BOB: That’s me! And I just want to tell you how excited I am to be here! This has always been my dream, you know! Ever since I was a little kid! I’ve always wanted to attend this school!

PAT: Easy, Bob. Just take it easy. So you guys all know about the Handsome Prince School?


PAT: Good. Good. That’ll make things easier. Gentlemen, this is a school to turn ordinary, rather plain looking guys into handsome princes.

BOB: Oh, boy! Oh, boy! This is so exciting! I can just feel it down in my soul!

PAT: Right. Whatever, Bob. Guys, the world is short of handsome princes. Nearly every fairytale has a handsome prince but those guys get old, they start falling off their horses, their tights start sagging and well … before you know it they’ve got to retire. That’s why we here at the Handsome Prince School have a job to keep turning out more handsome princes.

BOB: (to the others) I am so totally excited! Are you excited?

HENRY: Uh. Yeah. Excited.

PAT: Then let’s get right to work, gentlemen! Okay, first. Your names are all wrong. Bob, Henry, Rupert. Sounds like Snow White’s Dwarves. You’ll need something manly … something dashing and tough. You, Rupert … You’re Prince Lance.

RUPERT: I like it. Prince Lance! Yeah. Yeah.

PAT: Henry, you’re Prince Dirk.

HENRY: That’s so cool.

PAT: Bob … let’s see. You’re Prince Rip.

BOB: Why?

PAT: Because I said so.

BOB: Oh.

PAT: Now. First lesson. Princess Kissing.

HENRY: What?

PAT: Princess Kissing. The handsome prince always has to kiss a princess at the end of the story.
