Once upon a time! There were three witches.

NARRATOR (CONT.)

There were 3! witches.

(No more come out)

NARRATOR (Cont.)

Where are the others?

WITCHY

They're still getting ready... It's not easy look this scary. Boo!

(AUTHOR comes out and gives the NARRATOR a new page)

NARRATOR

Fine... Once upon a time there was a witch and 3 princesses.

(3 princesses appear)

WITCHY

Hey! What's the big idea?! I thought this was our story. How come princesses have to come in and take over every story.

PRINCESS KAY

Because we're more beautiful than you.

(KAY knocks the witch's hat off)

PRINCESS BEE

And more graceful.

(One trips WITCHY)

PRINCESS DEE

And more intel... Intelli... More smarter than you.

(One drops a big book on her)

WITCHY

I'll get you my pretties and your little NARRATOR too!

NARRATOR

I'm not that little.

WITCHY

Where's the AUTHOR? I demand to see the AUTHOR. I was told this was this story was about witches.

(AUTHOR enters. Princesses clap their hands)

ALL 3 PRINCESSES

Author!! Author!

(He likes the attention but tries to act cool)

AUTHOR

Ladies please.

PRINCESS KAY

Can I have your autograph?

PRINCESS BEE

Your even more handsome in person.

PRINCESS DEE

I've read all your scripts.

WITCHY

Ok now I see why this isn't about witches anymore.

AUTHOR

Never fear, foul witch... The story has not yet begun. For this is a tale more WITCHY than the wicked west winds. More magical the northern night sky.... It's a tale of truth and revelation. Of crime and punishment... A tale of three witches who wrought wrongs with woe. It was a dark and stormy night...

NARRATOR

Hey you took my lines!

PRINCESS KAY

He says them so much better.

PRINCESS BEE

He's so dreamy.

PRINCESS DEE

Wait a minute... He said 3 witches.

PRINCESS KAY

So it's not about us?

AUTHOR

There are no small parts. Only small actors.

NARRATOR

Will everyone stop calling me small? I'm just a bit undertall.

WITCHY

So this is about us?

AUTHOR

Observe.

(Monster looking person with scroll)

MONSTER

By order of the witch Queen Gwyndolin, there will be a contest of witches.

BEE

I hope it's not a beauty contest.

DEE

Maybe an ugly contest.

MONSTER

The queen will award the trickiest witch in the land with the one trick pony.

PRINCESS KAY

I like ponies.

NARRATOR

The one trick pony is no ordinary pony. It's a magical creature.

PRINCESS BEE

Like a unicorn?

PRINCESS DEE

I love unicorns!

NARRATOR

No but it grants the owner with one wish... Any wish their heart desires.

WITCHY

And I think I know what I'd wish for.

(WITCHY gives Princesses a dirty look)

PRINCESS KAY

I'd wish to be fairest of them all.

PRINCESS BEE

I'd wish for a handsome Prince.

PRINCESS DEE

I'd wish for more wishes.

WITCHY

So how do I win?

MONSTER

The witch who tricks the most non-witches will win the prize.

WITCHY

Tricks eh? How will the queen know how many I've tricked?

MONSTER

The trickster must take the trickees to a trap and detain them there for the total tally time.

WITCHY

But how will I trick these people?

PRINCESS KAY

I am way prettier than all of you.

PRINCESS DEE

I am fairest of them all.

PRINCESS BEE

My beauty makes you two look like the beast.

(WITCHY turns to audience)

WITCHY

I couldn't ... Could I? They're asking for it.

(To princesses)

WITCHY (CONT.)

I have something that will make you the most lovely of all.

PRINCESS KAY

Really?

PRINCESS BEE

I want it.

PRINCESS DEE

Dibs... I called royal dibs.

PRINCESS KAY

There's no such thing.

PRINCESS DEE

Is so.

PRINCESS BEE

Not!

WITCHY

Wait... Wait. You can all three have it.

PRINCESS KAY

We can't all be prettiest... Can we?

WITCHY

You must put this magic powder on the one thing you want to be prettiest... But you must all pick something different.

PRINCESS BEE

My hair. I pick hair.

PRINCESS DEE

Face... I pick face.

PRINCESS KAY

Then I pick everything else.

Princes BEE

Can she do that?

WITCHY

She can.

PRINCESS DEE

No fair.

PRINCESS KAY

Hand over the powder, witch.

WITCHY

Heed this warning. You must only use it at night while you are asleep or a terrible curse will befall you.

PRINCESS BEE

Yeah yeah whatever.

PRINCESS DEE

Let's go. I am going to bed early tonight.

(PRINCESSES go)

MONSTER

What did you give them?

WITCHY

Itching powder... I always carry some on me. I love how it makes my toes tingle.

(AUTHOR writes stuff and hands it to NARRATOR)

NARRATOR

So the first witch's trick has been set in motion and she ponders what evil deed she shall do... (To AUTHOR) But is she really that evil?

AUTHOR

What? She's a witch. Of course she is.

NARRATOR

But the princesses were being all vain... I don't really feel sorry for them.

AUTHOR

Ah... You're on to me. You're a clever one.

NARRATOR

Thank you. (AUTHOR gives her another page) Then the witch spotted her next victims.

(Two servants, Flim and Flam, chant "Fight Fight Fight!" as a mean Princess named BERTHA holds down another Princess named KATE)

BERTHA

Look... KATE the Great says she wants to eat a worm.

FLIM AND FLAM

Eat! Eat! Eat!

KATE

No thanks. I'm not hungry.

BERTHA

Oh yes you are.

(WITCHY enters)

WITCHY

Hello there.

FLIM AND FLAM

Witch! Witch! Witch!

BERTHA

What do you want?

WITCHY

No, the question is what do you want?

BERTHA

Huh?

WITCHY

I am here to grant you a wish.

FLIM AND FLAM

Wish! Wish! Wish!

BERTHA

You my fairy godmother?

FLIM AND FLAM

(laugh)

Ha ha ha.

WITCHY

Something like that.

BERTHA

Cool. A wish huh? I can get anything I want?

WITCHY

Yes, you'll get what you deserve.

BERTHA

I wish for... A bag of gold.

FLIM

(clears her throat)

Uh-hum.

BERTHA

No wait. Two bags of gold.

FLAM

(holds up 3 fingers)

Uh-hum.

BERTHA

3 bags! Big ones.

FLIM AND FLAM

Gold! gold! gold!

WITCHY

Very well... Eat that worm and your wish will come true.

BERTHA

What?

WITCHY

Eat the worm and you get your wish.

FLIM AND FLAM

Eat! eat! eat!

BERTHA

Shut up you two…

FLIM AND FLAM

(whisper)

Gold gold gold.

BERTHA

Fine I'll do it.

(BERTHA makes faces - but eats worm)

BERTHA (CONT.)

Now where's my gold?

(MONSTER appears with 3 bags)

WITCHY

There's your gold - now you just have to catch her.

(MONSTER runs. BERTHA, FLIM and FLAM run after MONSTER. They can continue to run and chase during the following)

KATE

Thank you.

WITCHY

For what?

KATE

For helping me.

WITCHY

I wasn't helping you - I was helping me.

KATE

Thanks anyway.

WITCHY

Why were they picking on you?

KATE

They don't like that I'm smart I guess. I always make them look bad in school. They call me KATE the Great because the teacher thinks I am so great. I just like to learn. I sometimes wish I could play dumb but no one can be as dumb as them so I gave up trying. I can at least make the teacher happy - I will never make them like me.

WITCHY

They're not worth it. They're a waste of food.

KATE

Then why did you give them gold?

(MONSTER runs through with BERTHA behind)

FLIM AND FLAM

Run! run! run!

WITCHY

They didn't get it yet.

(WITCHY leaves)

KATE

I just want to do something great with my life. I really do want to be Kate the Great. I want to build the biggest building the kingdom has ever seen... One that will touch the sky. Or build wings that will make me fly through the clouds. I want to do something amazing that no one has ever seen. I want to be truly great... But in a good way. Not some great ruler who lives off the suffering of others. Or someone who gets rich by stealing or hurting. I want to be a good kind of great. A kind, kind of great. A great someone who makes this kingdom a better place for us all.

(KATE exits. AUTHOR hands a paper to NARRATOR)

NARRATOR

So this witch is off to a good start. She has tripped her tricks and prepared her trap. Now for the witches... Wait wait. No mention of Kate the Great?

AUTHOR

What do you mean?

NARRATOR

She seems important.

AUTHOR

No... all that stuff she said... I think she got it from another play... I don't think I wrote that.

NARRATOR

Probably not; it was too good.

AUTHOR

What?! That's it. I am writing you out of the script.

NARRATOR

No you can't - you....

(AUTHOR rips the page. NARRATOR can't speak. AUTHOR leaves and NARRATOR does over-dramatic silent crying and exits)
