Flowers are designed!

Music is born!

Colors are created!

Tastes are tested!

Laughter lights up!

NARRATOR
And kindness is spread on butterfly wings.

BUTTERFLY
It’s impossible to be angry or sad when you see a butterfly.

NARRATOR
That’s right. Because butterflies spread kindness and joy.

BUTTERFLY
It jumps right off our wings.

NARRATOR
That’s right. Butterflies are special creatures of transformation and they spread kindness. And as we all know, Rainbowland is a place of kindness.

KNIGHT
Except when it comes to ‘you know who.’

(ALL GASP & show fear on body and face.)

NARRATOR
Oh dear, I almost forgot.

KNIGHT
The Witch Sisters!

(ALL GASP & show fear on body and face.)

NARRATOR
The Witch Sisters don’t actually live in Rainbowland.

KNIGHT
Thank goodness!

NARRATOR
But they were always lurking about near the edge of the land.

KNIGHT
Don’t worry. We’ll keep watch.

(Knights exit in one direction and Witch Sisters enter from the other.)

WITCH
Come on Sister. Let’s get those butterflies.

WITCH
We’ve tried before. I think it’s impossible.

WITCH
Nonsense. We are sneaky and sly and smart and…(searching for another “S” word)

WITCH
Sisters?

WITCH
Yes. We’re sisters. We simply must catch those butterflies. I’m tired of all those people in Rainbowland being so happy and kind.

WITCH
Me too.

NARRATOR
So the sisters came up with a plan. (They huddle.) They would sneak in while everyone was busy planning for the birthday party of the beautiful Princess Sasia. (Pronounced Sasha) Nobody would notice them because they would be in disguise! (We see the Witches put on silly disguises and hide.)
