The Flower Gardner named Unicorn (Sky)
Esamaya the Bollywood Goddess (Sage)
Royal Kingdom Clown (Summit)
The Rope Charmer (Tristan)
Intro. Set in the clouds, Esamaya looks over the land and senses a disturbance. She fears that the evil Sorcerer of Doom will return to the land, bringing darkness and suffering. She sees light coming from the castle laboratory of Wizard Snumblesnore. She blesses his work, trusting that he also senses the return of the Sorcerer of Doom and is working on a solution
I. Within the stone walls of Wizard Snumblesnore's lab, tiny lightning rods, bursts of color and snapping, fizzing sounds shoot around his work table. He reaches into his 'materials cylinder' and pulls out eye of newt, frog warts, ect. To complete this potent potion that will alter dark destiny, the wizard must add one ounce of good humor, 1000 snake scales, several wildcrafted herbs and The Stone of Duty. He resolves to venture into the town to seek the items from the market... all but the Stone of Duty... it would be difficult to procure the precious stone from the princess of the town...
Esamaya is still watching from the clouds and conspires to create an event that will bring the princess and wizard together.
II. Once in town, Wizard Snumblesnore navigates the hustle and bustle of the market. He follows the laughter to where Royal Kingdom Clown is busking(street performing). After the performance, the wizard appeals to the clown for an ounce of good humor. The clown is more than happy to help his friend the wizard. Next, Wizard Snumblesnore approaches the Rope Charmer. After the Rope Charmer performs a masterful rope levitation act, the wizard tells him of his need for 1000 snake scales. Of course! The Rope Charmer runs off to ask his cousin the Snake Charmer for the scales. He returns promptly with a golden cask full of scales. The wizard is very grateful. Lastly, the wizard finds his friend Unicorn, a flower gardener. The wizard details the various plants needed for his potion, and Unicorn's nimble hands pick through foxgloves, borage and geraniums seeking the flowering herbs needed. She briefs Wizard Snumblesnore on the rumor that Crystal the Universal Princess would be presenting Esemaya the Bollywood Goddess at a grand gala that evening. Wizard Snumblesnore thanked Unicorn and dashed off to prepare himself for an unexpected gala that evening.
III. At the gala, Crystal the Universal Princess addresses the masses from a high balcony. She is gracious and also severe about her duties as the princess and most importantly the keeper of The Stone of Duty. She feels that it is her most important duty to provide the people of her land with the finest art in the universe. She is pleased to present a special performance from Esemaya the Bollywood Goddess. The crowd goes wild as Esemaya makes her entrance down the grand staircase. The sounds of drums and bells escort her as she bursts onto the stage into full dance. At the height of the excitment, Crystal, descends the grand staircase and begins to dance in unison with Esemaya. It is an epic performance. The crowd is utterly wow-ed.
IV. After the show, Wizard Snumblesnore approaches Esemaya and Crystal. He relates his need for the Stone of Duty. Esemaya confesses that she encouraged Crystal to host the performance to bring the wizard and the princess together. She assured Crystal that if she would let the wizard use the stone for his work, great change would occur in the dark destiny of the land. The princess is reluctant to relinquish the stone to the wizard. It is her duty to protect it. And so, with no time to waste, the wizard invites the princess to work on the potion with him. Perhaps, he will need some collaborators in this task. Outside the gala, Wizard Snumblesnore, Crystal the Universal Princess, Unicorn, Esamaya the Bollywood Goddess, Royal Kingdom Clown and
The Rope Charmer are headed in a marching procession to the castle laboratory. Once there, each of their gifts are bestowed on the potion making it even more powerful. Bathed in light, the group rejoices in the success of the potion, trusting that they will have what they need if ever threatened by Doom.
