Excerpt from the play…
Woogle, the Wizard Version of Google
Other Horses (as many as desired)
Settings: Snow Queen’s Ice Castle, Hera’s Castle on Mount Olympus, Gerta’s apartment
NARRATOR: Once upon a time, in an ice palace far away, the famous Snow Queen was quite angry.
SNOW QUEEN: UGH! He’s just…just…SO RUDE!
NARRATOR: But I bet you can’t guess who she’s so angry about. You couldn’t possibly know, because the story we are about to tell you has never been told before. It’s the story all about how the Snow Queen tried to exact her revenge on…
SNOW QUEEN: HERCULES!
NARRATOR: I bet you didn’t see that one coming!
SNOW QUEEN: How dare he steal my magical ice horses! I don’t care who told him to do it, I don’t care if it was all part of his life plan to become this ridiculous strong man……he had no right!
The WOOGLE peeks his head out, curious about all the noise.
SNOW QUEEN: WOOGLE!
The WOOGLE enters quickly, tripping over himself in his shock and excitement.
NARRATOR: In case you didn’t know, a woogle is like the fairytale version of Google. Except, it’s a wizard, not a website on the internet.
WOOGLE: Hello, your frozenness. You must need to know stuff!
SNOW QUEEN: Yes, Woogle I do.
WOOGLE: What do you search for?
SNOW QUEEN: I would like to know who else in this Universe holds a grudge against Hercules. I would love to find someone who despises him half as much as I do.
WOOGLE: One moment, your frozenness. Searching feeling histories of all humans and creatures. *pause* Ah-ha! Here’s one. Hera of Mount Olympus.
SNOW QUEEN: Perfect! I’ll write to her at once. Please go give my reindeer her address.
WOOGLE: Of course, your frozenness.
The WOOGLE exits. While the SNOW QUEEN starts furiously writing. During the next narration, the REINDEER and HERA enter. HERA stands on the opposite side of the stage from the SNOW QUEEN reading a letter.
NARRATOR: So, the Snow Queen wrote to Hera at once. When Hera received the letter, she was beyond pleased with what it contained.
HERA: So, someone else in this Universe sees through Hercules’ perfect image? This is wonderful!
NARRATOR: Hera and the Snow Queen exchanged letters for quite some time. Exchanging stories about their lives and the many reasons they had to want revenge against Hercules.
The REINDEER runs back and forth between to the two as if delivering their letters.
SNOW QUEEN: (writing) Can you believe he just broke into my stables and stole my ice horses? He didn’t even come to palace to introduce himself?
HERA: (writing) That’s Hercules’ for you! He strangled my two pet snakes when he was less than a year old. He’s never been very thoughtful about other peoples’ pets.
SNOW QUEEN: (writing) That’s terrible! We have to do something about this!
HERA: I have the perfect plan!
