(STORYTELLERS set up stage for palace as SULTAN
enters in a huff, speaking over his shoulder.)
SULTAN: Young lady I have had quite
enough of your head strong ways.
JASMINE: But, father! If you
would only listen to me!
SULTAN: I can't listen to you!
It fills my ears with camel crud and monkeyfeathers!
JASMINE: Well, listening to you fills
my eyes with tears, father!
SULTAN: Oh, my little apricot.
When will you listen to your poor old papa? A princess must
marry a prince! Now please, my dear. Just sit still and
let us see how you like this next one.
(SULTAN seats JASMINE,
claps his hands.)
(STORYTELLER NASIB becomes THOR and enters with
a bound. He makes a deep exaggerated bow then jumps up with
arms up like an Olympic swimmer.)
THOR: I am here, your highness!
I have arrived!
SULTAN: Now here's a worthy prince,
my dear. From a different country but quite eligible.
Show her how strong you are, Thor.
THOR: I am most gifted with a slender
physique as you can plainly see... (Poses to show himself off.)
And yet for all of this delicate splendor I am strong like
bull! (Makes muscle in his arm.) You see
(He lifts a set piece and poses with it as if
his picture is being taken.)
SULTAN: You see, my dear.
SULTAN: Show her, Thor! Do
(THOR points to an adult audience member in the
THOR: I could lift this sack of
clothing right here in the front row.
SULTAN: (Clapping with delight.)
Oh, yes, do!
(THOR goes to lift audience member. He
struggles but can't lift him.)
THOR: This sack is too large. I
could lift a smaller one if you like.
SULTAN: (Clapping.) Go
on! Go on!
(THOR tries to lift a child audience
member. Struggles, can't do it.)
THOR: This small sack is obviously stuffed
crosses downstage cradling a baby doll, making baby crying sounds --
"wah-wah!". She hands THOR the baby doll. He
takes it and lifts it above his head. He is triumphant,
strutting and waving as he imagines adoring crowds.)
Ha! Ha! Strong like bull!
(Even the SULTAN can see this is lame.)
THOR: Huh? What?
(BAKI begins to escort THOR away.)
THOR: I do not marry the princess?
SULTAN: You do not. Next please.
(THOR exits, dejected, carrying the baby doll
by the foot. FARIS enters with STORYTELLER RANA as PRINCE YOGI.)
FARIS: Prince Yogi, your highness.
(FARIS bows and exits. YOGI enters stumbling,
with his nose in a book. He is nearsighted and clumsy, pushing
his glasses to his face.)
SULTAN: This one is very smart, my
dear. You'll see. Go ahead, say something smart, Yogi!
YOGI: Sorry, sir. Were you
talking to me?
SULTAN: Yes, yes, Yogi! Read
something from your book there. Something astute.
YOGI: Oh. Um. Well, here
is a love poem.
SULTAN: Excellent. Read! Read!
YOGI: Roses are red, violets are
succulent. I love you more than a smelly elephant.
(FARIS rushes YOGI away, they exit.)
JASMINE: Oh, father, don't you
see? No matter how many princes you bring to me, I will love
only one! The prince I met at the market today!
SULTAN: Nonsense! What kind of
a prince goes skulking around in the market? Wait until you see
the next one, my dear. You'll fall in love in an instant. (Clapping.)
(GEEWIZ enters and bows.)
GEEWIZ: Your highness, I present my
master, Prince Omar.
(OMAR enters. He makes great sweeps of
his cape as he bows.)
OMAR: Your highness. (He
slinks up to JASMINE.)
You told me of your daughter's charms, sir, but I see you were
modest. Why, not even the stars in the sky can compare to these
(OMAR kisses JASMINE's
rolls her eyes and pulls away.)
SULTAN: This would be a very good
match for you, Jasmine. Omar is well connected.
OMAR: Did he tell you that I'm a magician?
