SCRIPT:

 

NARRATOR: Once upon a time there was a small eagle who fell from the safety of his nest.  At that moment a chicken farmer was passing by, and took him to the farm.

 

FARMER: Look what I found…  an Eagle!.

 

WIFE: I can surely see that. What are you going to do with it?.

 

FARMER: I will raise him in the chicken coop among the other chickens.

 

WIFE: Ha, ha, ha, ha… whatever you say.

 

FARMER: You will see. This will be my best chicken!.

 

NARRATOR: The eagle grew up living like a chicken, and believing he was a chicken.  One day a friend came to the farm and he saw the eagle.

 

FRIEND: Hey, listen… what is that eagle doing there… among the chickens?.

 

FARMER: Oh, that’s the best chicken I have!.

 

FRIEND: No!  That is not a chicken… that’s an eagle, and he will always be an eagle!.

 

FARMER: No, this is my chicken and it will always be a chicken.  I trained him to be a chicken and he believes he is a chicken.  He even eats corn!.

 

FRIEND: No!.  He was born an eagle and he has the heart of an eagle, and nothing can change that.  He is the king of the sky! . You know what… I bet you he is an eagle!.

 

FARMER: Very well, let’s see if what you say it’s true.

 

FRIEND: Come on, let’s go to the top of the farmhouse and I will show you that he can fly.

 

NARRATOR: Both climb to the roof of the farmhouse.  The farmer’s friend took the eagle in his hands and said.

 

FRIEND: You are an eagle, and not a chicken, you belong to the sky and not to the earth… stretch your wings and fly!.

 

NARRATOR: The man dropped the eagle, but he didn’t even try to open his wings to fly.  The eagle fell to the earth and started to eat corn.

 

FARMER: Ha, ha, ha, ha …. I told you it was a chicken!.

 

FRIEND: No, it will always be an eagle!.  You know what… I double the bet, but let’s go to a higher place.

 

FARMER: Very well, let’s go to a hill.

 

NARRATOR: Both men went to a small hill that was near the farm.  The farmer’s friend took once again the eagle in his hands and said.

 

FRIEND: You are an eagle, and not a chicken, you belong to the sky and not to the earth… stretch your wings and fly.

 

NARRATOR: The man dropped the eagle again.  The eagle tried to stretch his wings, but he couldn’t because he was afraid of the unknown world.  And when he was on the earth, he ran to the farm to join the chickens.

 

FARMER: Ha, ha, ha, ha.

 

FRIEND: This is not funny!.  Let’s go to a higher place.

 

FARMER: I don’t know… I have to think about it.

 

FRIEND: So, you are not sure, right?.

 

FARMER: Well…it could die, you know.

 

FRIEND: I will give you three times what I offered you, just let me show you what this animal is.

 

FARMER: Well… I agree, let’s go to the top of the mountain.

 

NARRATOR: Both men went to the top of the highest mountain.  And the farmer’s friend held the eagle on his arm and pointed high into the sky, and said.

 

FRIEND: You are an eagle, and not a chicken, you belong to the sky and not to the earth… stretch your wings and fly!.

 

NARRATOR: This time the eagle stared skyward into the bright sun, straightened his large body, and stretched his massive wings.  His wings moved, slowly at first, then surely and powerfully.  With the mighty screech of an eagle, he flew, and got lost in the horizon.

 

FRIEND: See?.  I told you he was an eagle, and he will always be.  He is the king of the sky.

 

THE END

 

Adapted by K I D S I N C O based on a popular folktale.

 

Moral:  Many people are born and grow up among chickens.  Nevertheless, they have all the potential to be like an eagle, to fly high.  Sometimes when we grow up among chickens, in an environment where we don’t think that we can achieve those goals, we stay there.  We all have the potential, the abilities and the talent to fly high, but we have to believe that we can.  We need to persevere and have the attitude needed to fly high.  Nobody can tell us where we can fly, unless we stretch our wings and start flying.
