This shoe we'll fit today!

It's just a little Christmas wish
For Kings must have their way
O'er hill and stream, we'll fish, my lord
Your lass won't get away

A shoe, a slipper, or a boot
Whichever fits the lass
I really couldn't give a hoot
Just so he marries at last

It's just exactly as we planned
Hip hip hip hip hooray!
Oh, aren't love and life just grand?
A perfect Christmas Day!"

UPDATE!:

Hey, Ladies and Gents - 


Some of you may remember me from this summer - I'm Miss Rose, and I'll be directing the Christmas show this year! Auditions are in a few days, so here are some things to remember:

1) Please make sure your child comes in comfortable clothing, with whatever food and water they need to be hydrated and energetic.

2) You don't need to worry about printing anything from the script - they will all be there for you!

3) Because we are so short on time, I ask that you please bring a piece of paper with your child's name, age, and the role they want most, as a well as a picture of them. This does not have to be a big fancy professional to-do - kitchen paper and a picture printed from home will do just fine! It is very important that you bring this with you.

4) Have fun! Here at LYTE, if you're happy; we're happy.

These are the sides I have prepared for Saturday. I ask that the girls learn two of the three passages provided for them, and that the boys do the same. I also ask that everyone pick and learn one of the two general readings provided. Thank you all so much! 


SIDES FOR GIRLS:
FAIRY GODMOTHER: It looks like your sadness is keeping you from the magic. You always believed in it before. But today you don't. I've come to make you believe again. Believe in the magic, believe in your dreams. They do come true, you know. 

FAIRY GODMOTHER: I wouldn't hear of it! What kind of a dream come true would that be? Now, I've tried this with kumquats and zucchini but I find pumpkins work best. You there - there's a pumpkin growing in the garden, in that direction. Can you get it for me? Now, I want you to dream very hard and imagine the most beautiful Christmas sleigh in the world.

FAIRY GODMOTHER: Dreams don't last forever, dear. And this one ends at midnight. You must be home by then. Because at the stroke of midnight, all of this turns back into rodents and squash and your jolly old coachman will be on his way home.

SIDES FOR BOYS:
PRINCE CHARMING: Father, is this really necessary? I think I've made myself quite clear on the subject. I know what you're up to here, and I promise you, I won't marry just any lady! Father, I won't get married until I fall in love!

KING GRUMBLE-KNEES: I won't have it, I say! It's high time the boy is married! Jingle bells and sugarplum pops! There must be someone! I need grandchildren, Snitwick! The kingdom needs an heir! And also - I'm lonely. I need the pitter-patter of little feet. A little snookie-wookie grandson to tuck in at night. 

MISTERS SNITWICK & SEZ-SO: Good evening, ladies. If you please, and rather if you don't please, I'm sure - we are humble servants of his majesty, the King. The Kind requests your presence, madam and ladies, at this evening's royal Christmas Ball. The halls will be decked, the harps will be struck, and so forth. Eggnog and Figgy pudding at seven sharp with pomp and grandeur to follow. 

GENERAL READINGS:
MICE: Don't cry, Cinderelly. It's not so bad. It was such a lovely night - a night you'll always remember! Besides, you got us. We might not be your flying reindeer, but we'll always be your friends.

FAIRY GODMOTHER: A ring and a ling-a-ding-ding
It can be such a splendid thing
When you mop up your tears
And replace them with cheers
You'll be so delighted, you'll sing!

*All of these will be printed out and available to read from directly at auditions, but the more memorized you are and the better you know your choices, the more fun you can have!

I look forwards to seeing all of you on Saturday! Best wishes.

~Miss Rose
