SAMPLE TEXT...

MUDDLES             Nurse Nelly where are we, I have never been in this part of the Palace before

NURSE NELLY        Come on Muddles, are you a man or a mouse?

MUDDLES              Well I like cheese! Hiya Gang!

AUDIENCE             Hiya Muddles (action)

NURSE NELLY        Muddles look! (points at spinning wheel)

                              Hold on, I thought spinning wheels were banished from the Kingdom.  Look its Princess Aurora’s scarf (or which ever article she dropped)

NURSE NELLY         Muddles! Princess Aurora must have run from here and dropped this, I hope there is nothing wrong!

MUDDLES goes to the spinning wheel

MUDDLES              Look Nurse Nelly, there is blood on this spinning wheel

NURSE NELLY starts getting upset
