Oh, Toto, I wish I could go some where over that rainbow. I just know
theres more to the world than this. And I want to see it so
Little did Dorothy know that her life was just about to change.
(ALL performers and CHORUS
seated to the sides of the action take a big breath and blow in
DOROTHYs direction. DOROTHY and TOTO, twirl as if they have
been caught in a big wind.)
DOROTHY & TOTO: Whooooaaaaaaahhhh!!!!!!
(SOUND CUE #2. Storm... House
CHORUS begins making storm
sounds. They give the cymbal a roll and crashes, chimes tinkle,
kazoos sound like sirens, bongos bong etc.)
Suddenly there was a terrible storm!
(ALL performers make clapping
sounds for the rain, also tap the chair or floor to make the sound of raindrops.)
In the distance, Dorothy could see a funny looking cloud...
Oh, no! Its a cyclone!
(AUNTIE EM and UNCLE HENRY
enter, twirling and holding onto their hats, acting as if they are
straining against the wind. TOTO runs and hides behind someone in the
audience. NOTE: A lightweight cloth can be used here to indicate
wind. CHORUS members can billow it around to give a storm effect.)
AUNTIE EM: Dorothy!
Dorothy, come away!
Were all going down in the storm shelter.
Hurry, Dorothy! Or youll be swept away!
Yes, of course! Lets go Toto! (She
looks, cant find him.) Toto?
But Toto was so scared of cyclones that he ran in the house and hid
under the bed.
Toto, come back!
Let him go, Dorothy!
Hurry up, Dorothy!
(Uncle and Auntie exit.)
But I cant leave Toto!
(ALL performers blow again which
sends AUNTIE EM, UNCLE HENRY and DOROTHY twirling again.)
Toto! Come out from under that bed!
This is no time for hide and seek!
(TOTO whimpers and ventures out,
There you are you silly dog. Now
follow me, weve got to get out of here...
But it was too late!
(Members of CHORUS stand and
circle DOROTHY and TOTO, holding hands and catching her in their
circle. Their "circle" turns around them and catches her
and TOTO as they bob inside it.)
The house began to shiver...
The house began to shake...
Suddenly the cyclone ripped the house right off the ground!
(CHORUS break away from the
circle and twirl away, act as if they are floating and flying.
DOROTHY and TOTO crouch in the middle of the floor and watch as
CHORUS members "fly" by.)
And Dorothy and Toto looked out the window to see...
They were flying in the sky!
Oh, Toto, hold on to me!
by.) They saw houses...
as cow.) And
even cows! Moo?
("Floaters" drop to
the ground. CHORUS makes crashing sound. DOROTHY and TOTO cover their
heads. ALL "floaters" except for RED return to their
places. RED remains on stage, flat on her back, wearing red shoes. )
