MAN: Hail to the King!.

 

CROWD: Hail to the King!.

 

WOMAN: Hail to the Queen!.

 

CROWD: Hail to the Queen!.

 

MAN: Hail to the Princess!.

 

CROWD: Hail to the Princess!.

 

NARRATOR: The day the princess was baptized people were happy because they loved the King and Queen. That day six fairies were invited. Each one gave the princess a gift.

 

FAIRY 1: She will be the most beautiful princess.

 

FAIRY 2: She will be like an angel.

 

FAIRY 3: She will be the most gracious girl in the kingdom.

 

FAIRY 4: She will be the greatest dancer.

 

FAIRY 5: She will be loved by everybody.

 

NARRATOR: When the sixth fairy was about to speak, an old fairy entered the palace.

 

OLD FAIRY: Ha, ha, ha, ha…I wasn`t invited!. You didn`t invite the oldest fairy… ha, ha, ha, ha…very good, then… instead of a gift, I will give her a spell!.  The princess will in her fifteenth birthday prick herself with a spindle, and fall down dead… ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,

 

NARRATOR: And then she left the palace. But then the sixth fairy approached the princess and with her magic wand she said.

 

FAIRY 6: Don`t worry your majesty, your daughter will not die. She will prick her finger with a spindle, but she will not die, she will fall into a deep sleep for a hundred years, until a prince, son of a king, wakes her up.

 

NARRATOR: The king gave orders that every spindle in the whole kingdom should be burnt. Years passed by, and the little baby turned into the most beautiful girl in the kingdom. But one day, when the little girl was walking into every room and tower in the palace she found an old lady who was sitting with her spindle.

 

PRINCESS: Oh, sweet old lady, what are you doing?.

 

OLD LADY: Don`t you see, young girl?. I am spinning.

 

PRINCESS: It`s very nice. Can I try it?.

 

OLD LADY: Sure.

 

PRINCESS: Show me how, old lady?.  Like this?.  Ohhh…..

 

NARRATOR: And the princess pricked her finger with the spindle, and fell to the ground. Then the king called the sixth fairy.

 

KING: Now, what is going to happen, good fairy?.

 

FAIRY 6: She will sleep for a hundred years. Every body in the kingdom will fall into a deep sleep too, including the maids, noblemen, maidens, animals, guards, and the whole court, including you and the queen, so that when the princess wakes up she will not be alone.

 

KING: What about this castle?.

 

FAIRY 6: This castle will remain in the middle of a deep forest, and nobody will be able to get near it, until a hundred years have passed. Don`t worry, your majesty, your daughter then will be very happy.

 

NARRATOR: Time passed by rapidly. The forest was so deep that people could only see the castle`s towers. One day…

 

PRINCE: Uhh, horse, uhhh…Good morning, old man. What are you doing?.

 

OLD MAN: I am taking care of my sheep.This is the only thing I can do.

 

PRINCE: How old are you?.

 

OLD MAN: I am75 years old.

 

PRINCE: Then you must know who is the owner of that magnificent palace.

 

OLD MAN: Oh, yes sir. A long time ago my father told me that the castle was under a spell. He said that a beautiful princess is there, waiting for a prince to wake her up and marry her. But for now, nobody can go inside.

 

PRINCE: Don`t worry old man, I will.

 

OLD MAN: But you can`t… the forest will not let you in.

 

PRINCE: Good-bye!.

 

NARRATOR: That man was a very handsome prince who was hunting in the nearby woods. The prince´s horse galloped toward the castle where sleeping beauty was waiting. When he arrived, the trees let him in until he reached the great staircase that led to the castle.

 

PRINCE: That old man was right!. The castle is in a deep sleep. Everybody is sleeping, guards, maids, birds… but, I have to look for the princess.

 

NARRATOR: Finally, in a small room, he found the beautiful princess sleeping, lying in a bed wearing a gold embroidered dress. The prince approached her, he knelt down, and kissed her.

 

PRINCE: Beautiful Princess.

 

PRINCESS: Ohh, where am I?.

 

PRINCE: In your palace. You have just woken up from a hundred-year sleep.

 

PRINCES: Why did I sleep so much?. Who are you?.

 

PRINCE: I am a prince, son of a king. I came to wake you up. The good fairy told me the story, and she said that the bad fairy died a long time ago.

 

PRINCESS: No, no, prince, I don`t remember anything.And now, what?.

 

PRINCE: Now we will go to my palace. We will get married, and we will invite all the fairies that made you so beautiful, gracious, smart, good.

 

PRINCESS: Oh, yes, prince.

 

PRINCE: We will be the happiest king and queen on earth.

 

NARRATOR: When they arrived to the prince’s kingdom, the crowd was already gathered in the streets.

 

CROWD: Hail to the Princess!. Hail to the Prince!. Hail to the king and queen!.

 

NARRATOR: And that is how the princess after a hundred year sleep, became a queen, and lived happily forever and ever.
