ACT ONE
[A forest]

NARRATOR:
One day, a King was walking through the forest when an Enchantress appeared.

[The KING points at the ENCHANTRESS, laughing]

KING:
Your nose is so huge that I can't see your face!

ENCHANTRESS:
Is that so? Well, I'm going to curse your first child with a nose so big, you'll look back to this day and regret making this mistake.

KING:
Who are you kidding? You can't do magic. You're just an old ugly lady.

ENCHANTRESS:
You'll see what I can do. Bye....hehehehehe......(exits)



ACT II
[The royal nursery]

NARRATOR:
As the years past, the king had his first child.

KING:
He is so beautiful, but what a big lump on his face!

SERVANT:
Umm...... Sir, that is his nose.

[The king sits down, looking depressed]

SERVANT:
Don't worry. People with big noses grow up to be gorgeous.

KING:
I'll take your word for it.



ACT II
[A town scene]

NARRATOR:
The servant taught the young child that having a big nose was a fashion statement of beauty. The child believed the servant and carried on with his spoiled life. On his twentieth birthday, it was time for him to get married. He searched the land looking for the right lady. He found a beautiful princess that lived near the woods in a castle. Her name was Princess Rosebud. [Enter PRINCE from one side of the front of the stage. He has an enormous nose. PRINCESS ROSEBUD enters from the other. They hold hands.] The prince walked into the woods and past the town with his new beauty, Princess Rosebud. As they walked pass the stores they got a lot of rude remarks.

GOLDSMITH:
Look at that goofy looking guy.

[The BAKER appears outside his bakery, chuckling at the PRINCE after hearing the GOLDSMITH'S remark.]

BAKER:
I can only see half of his face, with that huge nose sticking out. You have enough money, why don't you get surgery?

[The PRINCE does not reply and exits with his hood over his face. PRINCESS ROSEBUD follows.]

PRINCESS ROSEBUD:
Don't mind those people, they are just jealous that you look better than them.

PRINCE:
I hate myself! Everywhere I go, people make fun of me.

[The PRINCE sits down, while the PRINCESS puts her arm around him.]

PRINCESS:
The only thing that matters is that I love you, and I think you are beautiful the way you are.

PRINCE:
You're so nice and sweet. I wish I could be with you more often.

PRINCESS:
I want to get to know you better.

PRINCE:
Maybe we can spend time with each other in the future.

PRINCESS:
OK, but first let's start off with dinner.

PRINCE:
Sounds good to me.

[They exit, arms around each other's waists.]
