NARRATOR: The two Stepsisters burst into the door, shrieking with glee.
STEPMOTHER: For goodness sake! What’s all the noise?
STEPSISTER #1: Mother, you won’t believe this!
STEPSISTER #2: It’s SO exciting!
STEPSISTER #1 & STEPSISTER #2: AYHHHH!
STEPMOTHER: What’s so exciting?
CINDERELLA: Yes, what’s so exciting?
STEPMOTHER: Cinderella, why are YOU here? No doubt you have chores to do!
CINDERELLA: Yes, Stepmother.
NARRATOR: Cinderella walked away, but still listened.
STEPSISTER #1: Get this, Mother! The Prince is having a ball!
STEPSISTER #2: Every young woman in the kingdom is invited. And he will choose one of them to be his bride!
STEPMOTHER: His bride?! Girls, this is our chance to move into the palace! Cinderella! Where did she go?
CINDERELLA: I’m right here.
STEPMOTHER: You must sew three new gowns for the ball. Each one in the latest style, mind you!
CINDERELLA: Three? Does that mean I’m going to the ball, too?
STEPMOTHER: What? Don’t be ridiculous!
STEPSISTER #1: You? Looking like THAT?
STEPSISTER #2: In those dirty rags? With that messy hair?
STEPMOTHER: Get real, Cinderella! You will sew two gowns for your stepsisters and one for ME. I wouldn’t miss this ball for ANYTHING.
NARRATOR: Poor Cinderella tried to hide her disappointment. She began to work on the three gowns for her stepmother and stepsisters.
