An excerpt …

(she is lovely)

PRINCESS LOVELY: (“flowing” into the area”) Oh what a lovely morning!

MOLLY: she said ...

PRINCESS LOVELY: The sky is lovely! The trees are lovely! And most lovely of all … is me.

MOLLY: She really was a babe. She called for her Daddy, the King.

PRINCESS LOVELY: Oh, Daddy the King!

MOLLY: (as Daddy the King enters) Daddy the King was not lovely, but he was okay.

KING: Yes, my lovely young daughter?

PRINCESS LOVELY: Daddy, I am so totally bored. I mean, after all, you have given me everything ... a lovely castle, lovely gowns, and lovely facial treatments. But I lack adventure! I want a sense of purpose!

KING: You mean a job?

PRINCESS LOVELY: Bite your lovely tongue, Daddy! Let us not get carried away! No, I want some excitement in my life!

(the King tries to find excitement for her)

PRINCESS LOVELY:  Bring me another!

MOLLY: And so he did …

KING: Presenting … A Magician!

MOLLY: And like magic, a magician appeared!

MAGICIAN: Princess Lovely! I will enchant you with the most amazing prestidigitation you have ever witnessed!

PRINCESS LOVELY: Fine. Now get to the magic.

MAGICIAN: Behold! A rabbit!

MOLLY: Said the magician as he pulled a rabbit from his left ear.

PRINCESS LOVELY: Bet that hurt.

MAGICIAN: Abracadabra!

MOLLY: Said the magician, and the all the trees in the kingdom started to dance with small twinkling lights!

PRINCESS LOVELY:  Now that is really cool.

(she meets a peasant boy and they go into the forest)

PRINCESS LOVELY: Whoa! We lost the sun! Where’d it go?

MOLLY: They were so tired that they fell fast asleep on the forest floor. (the two collapse onto the floor) And what should appear but a beautiful fairy!



BEAUTIFUL FAIRY: I’m a beautiful fairy, and I’ve come to give you a message.

PRINCESS LOVELY: (suddenly sitting up) Oh my gosh! My hair appointment! I missed it!
