SCRIPT:

 

NARRATOR: Once upon a time there was a farmer who was very poor.  One day he was plowing the field and thought.

 

FARMER: I work too much,  and all for nothing!.  I am tired of coming here every day and just for a few cents.  I really have bad luck!.

 

NARRATOR: Suddenly an elf appeared.

 

FARMER: Oh my!.

 

ELF: Don’t be afraid.

 

FARMER: Who are you?.

 

ELF: I heard what you said, and today your luck will change.  Take this hen.

 

FARMER: Thank you, I am so hungry!.  I will cook it as soon as I get home.

 

ELF: No!.  This is a very special hen.

 

FARMER: What makes it so special?.  Does it talk?.

 

ELF: No, just listen to me!.  This hen is so wonderful that every day it lays a golden egg.

 

FARMER: A golden egg?.

 

NARRATOR: The elf didn’t answer, and he just disappeared.

 

FARMER: I hope it’s true.  I will go home right away.

 

NARRATOR: The farmer went home and immediately put the hen in  a cage.  Next day, as soon as he woke up, he went to the chicken house to see if the hen laid the golden egg.

 

FARMER: Oh, it is true!.  It’s an egg of solid gold!.

 

NARRATOR: He took the egg, went to town, and tried to sell it.  He stood in the middle of the street and shouted.

 

FARMER: Golden egg for sale!.  Golden egg for sale!.

 

NARRATOR: Soon, a crowd gathered around him amazed at the golden egg.

 

WOMAN 1: How much do you want?.

 

WOMAN 2: Is it really a golden egg?.

 

FARMER: Sure, it is!.

 

MAN 1: I want it!.

 

MAN 2: No, it’s mine!.

 

MAN 3: I’ll buy it!.  Sell it to me!.

 

FARMER: It’s yours then, and don’t worry, I will bring another one tomorrow.  There are enough for everybody!.

 

NARRATOR: The farmer sold the egg.  Next day. when he woke up he went straight to see if there was another golden egg.

 

FARMER: Good, another golden egg!.  I’ll sell it right away.

 

NARRATOR: And once again he went to town and sold the egg.  After that day, and every day, the hen gave him a beautiful golden egg.

 

FARMER: I am getting richer and richer every day.  I am the richest man in town!.  I have everything a man could want, but I wonder how I could get more eggs from my hen.

 

NARRATOR: As the farmer grew richer, he also became greedy and stingy.

 

FARMER: I want to have more and more money!.  I am tired of waiting every day just for one  golden egg.

 

NARRATOR: And he thought and thought.

 

FARMER: I am going to kill the hen and I’ll find the gold mine she has inside.   I will have all her treasure at once!.

 

NARRATOR: So he cut her open and found nothing at all.

 

FARMER: This can’t be!.  Where’s the gold mine?.  Where’s her treasure?.  Now I don’t have the hen and its golden eggs!.
