I mean, yes, she’s undoubtedly beautiful but(Optional burst of The Price You Pay – Bruce Springsteen)Pandora: (Angrily) Oh right! It’s the blond argument, right? The ‘well, if she looks that good, there can’t be much underneath’? No spirit, heh?Music 6 Missionary Man – Eurythmics(Pandora throws off her ‘pretty clothes’ displaying a much stronger image)Narrator: (Holding up hand for music to stop) Whoa! That’s not the Perfect Pandora I was expecting!Epimetheus: (Gasping) And that’s not a side of my wife I’ve ever seen before!Pandora: Of course not! You only ever wanted me to be that perfect ‘domestic goddess’ – sitting around, looking pretty, staring vacantly out to space!Epimetheus: Well, isn’t that what wives are supposed to do?Narrator: Not this one, I suspect!(Optional excerpt of Thorn in my Side – Eurythmics – Pandora strutting up and down)Narrator: (Holding hand up) OK. Yes, we’ve got it! So underneath all that sweetness was a whole heap of frustration!Pandora: More like mega boredom! I mean, what was I supposed to do all day?Epimetheus: Stay out of mischief?

Hercules does so well ... until the arrival of that wicked king Eurystheus; but it doesn't take long before the latter realises his mistake in taking on this class - and it is truly heartening for all teachers everywhere to hear such respect from Hercules for their magnificent efforts!Enjoy The Twelve Labours of Hercules in fun, entertaining style - if it works for this set of children, it will definitely work for yours!Hercules features in two other scripts written by Sue Russell:1. Superheroes Assembly for KSII – where Hercules has the dubious pleasure of converting a class of very un-super heroes … into super heroes!2. Twelve New Labours of Hercules – in which the tables are turned on Hercules as he is the student on a self-improvement programme – this one with its focus on PSHE (i.e. ‘admirable’ character qualities!)Sample Text:Eurystheus: (To Narrator) Now. How many labours have we done?Narrator: Just three!(Loud groan from cast)Child 20: What? Nine more to go?Child 21: You have to be kidding?Child 22: This had better be good!Eurystheus: (Peevishly) What is it with these kids? A case of short attention span or what?(Cast all cross arms angrily, in defiant posture)Narrator: I’d be careful what you say, if I were you! This lot are easily upset and you might just find yourself in a bit of a spot!Eurystheus: (Laughing) Are you suggesting I should be worried by a load of kids? Oh don’t make me laugh! (To cast) Now. About this fourth labour.(Whole cast yawns loudly) Hercules’ task was to capture the Erymanthian Boar.Child 23: Did someone say ‘bore’?Child 24: As in, bore us to death’Child 24: I think we can safely say, he already has!(Whole cast nod)Eurystheus: Now wait a minute!(Eurystheus walks over to the props box and tries to find ‘Boar’)Eurystheus: (Muttering) it must be in here somewhere!(Child 25, who had, unseen by Eurystheus, crept over to the props box and taken the Boar, pounces out at him, making him leap in the air and scream with terror; Hercules falls about laughing, as does the rest of the cast)

Twelve New Labours of Hercules Assembly

Twelve New Labours of Hercules Assembly

Twelve New Labours of Hercules AssemblyNB: This script is not about the original 12 Labours of Hercules! It is based around a completely different set of challenges – on the kind of ‘admirable qualities’ the cast feels Hercules should have – presenting him with a 12-part self-improvement plan!This is a kind of spin off from the Superheroes script - almost a reversal in fact; as whilst in that script it was Hercules trying to make superheroes out of a pretty unpromising cast, this script is about the cast pulling the punches - Hercules struggling along in their wake!Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or downDuration around 15 - 20 minutes not including music suggestions.This Key Stage II class play is PSHE ‘orientated’ as it focuses on 'character improvements' e.g. humility, courage, mutual respect, upholding what is right, keeping positive, patience, love .... and of course the hardest of all, being happy!Sample Text:Child 11: A start to your self-improvement plan.Hercules: My what?Child 12: Well, we all feel you are lackingHercules: Me? The great Hercules? Lacking?Child 12: (Coughing) If you would allow me to finish? We all feel you are lacking – make that, greatly lacking in some of the qualities you should have asHercules: As a great superhero? I don’t think so!Child 13: Actually, I was going to say, as a member of the human race! Your mother was a mortal, right?Hercules: YesChild 14: So I’m sure she’d appreciate us trying to improve you!Hercules: Huh! How can you improve on perfection?Music 3 Chariots of Fire theme music(Hercules strides around ‘looking magnificent’)(Child 15 walks over to the music and turns it off)Hercules: (Indignantly) Hey! What’s the big idea?Child 15: I think we all get it! You are Mr Universe!Hercules: (Looking very pleased with himself) Well, thank you. IChild 15: (Pointing to head) In your head, that is!Hercules: (Furiously) Pardon?Child 15: Oh do stop saying that! Anyone would think you had a hearing problem!Hercules: (Spluttering) I most definitely do not! Everything about my physique is perfect!Child 15: Like I said, maybe on the outside. But it’s what’s on the inside that is sadly lacking. But don’t worry, we are going to help fix that!Hercules: (Sarcastically) And may I ask how?Child 16: You may! All very simple. You just have to complete 12 simple tasks that we set you.Hercules: (Laughing) Oh I get it! You are going to give me another 12 labours.
