The Hare and The Tortoise




Narrator: One day a hare was making fun at the tortoise.

Hare: Ha, ha, ha!  Your feet are so small and you walk so slow that you take too long to get to a place.

Tortoise: You may be as faster as the wind, but I will beat you in a race.

Hare: That is simply impossible. Ha, ha, ha!  But, I agree, let`s have a race.

Tortoise: Very well then.  The fox will choose the way and will wait for us  at the winning post.

Fox: Very good!  I will be waiting for both of you.  Let`s see who wins!

Narrator: On the day of the race the two started the race together.

Fox: 1, 2, 3, Go!

Tortoise: I will not stop walking.  I will keep walking slow but at a steady pace straight to the end of the finish line.

Hare: Oh well.  That tortoise walks so slow that I have time to take a nap.  zzzzzzzzzz

Narrator: When the hare woke up.

Hare: Oh I fell asleep.  I have to run as fast as I can.  I think I wasted some time.

Narrator: Then he saw the Tortoise had reached the winning post.

Hare: How did you do it?  This is impossible!

Tortoise: While you slept, I kept walking.   I may seem slow, but I am constant and patient, so I won the race.

Hare: You`re right Tortoise,  Being fast doesn`t mean that you will win.  I learned my lesson!

The Lion and The Mouse

Hunter 1
Hunter 2


Narrator: Once  upon a time a Lion was taking a nap, when a little Mouse began running up and down upon him; this soon woke up  the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him.

Mouse: I am sorry, O King, forgive me this time, I will never forget it. I promise to do something for you in return some of these days.

Lion: Ha, ha, ha, yeah sure! You can go.

Narrator: A few days later, some hunters caught the king of the jungle.

Hunter 1: Hey, look what we got here! This lion is so big and strong. Let´s take him to our king.

Hunter 2: Yes, but let`s tie him first to that tree while we go to get a wagon to carry him on.

Narrator: Just then the little Mouse was passing  by.

Mouse: Da, da, da, Oh, what do we have here? It´s my friend, the lion.

Lion: It`s me, help me please before the hunters come back.

Mouse: I will. I haven`t forgotten the promise I made to you one day.

Narrator: So the mouse started eating the ropes.

Mouse: You are free now. A few days  ago you laughed thinking that I couldn`t do something for you in return for what you did for me. Now it is time that you know that little mice are grateful and keep their promises.

Lion: I am sorry, my friend. Thank you for what you did for me now. I will never laugh at the promises made by the little ones, I know that when the time comes, they will not forget them.

The Old Witch


Little Girl



Narrator: There was once a little girl who was very willful and who never obeyed when her elders spoke to her.   One day she said to her parents.

Little Girl: I have heard so much of the old witch that I will go and see her. People say she is a wonderful old woman, and has many marvelous things in her house, and I am very curious to see them.

Parents: We won´t let you go! The witch is a wicked old woman, who performs many godless deeds – and if you go near her, you are no longer a child of ours.

Narrator: The girl, however, would not turn back at her parents’ command, but went to the witch’s house. When she arrived there the old woman asked her:

Witch: Why are you so pale?

Little Girl: Ah, she replied, trembling all over, I have frightened myself so with what I have just seen.

Witch: And what did you see?

Little Girl: I saw a black man on your steps.

Witch: That was a collier.

Little Girl: Then I saw a gray man.

Witch: That was a sportsman.

Little Girl: After him I saw a blood-red man.

Witch: That was a butcher.

Little Girl: But, oh, I was most terrified. When I peeped through your window, and saw not you, but a creature with a fiery head.

Witch: Then you have seen the witch in her proper dress. For you I have long waited, and now you shall give me light.

Narrator: So saying the witch changed the little girl into a block of wood, and then threw it on the fire. When it was fully alight, she sat down on the hearth and warmed herself, saying:

Witch: How good I feel! The fire has not burned like this for a long time!

The Princess and The Pea


Narrator: Once upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess; but she would have to be a real princess. He travelled allover the world to find one, but nowhere could he get what he wanted. There were princesses enough, but it was difficult to find out whether they were real ones. One evening a terrible storm came on; A knocking was heard at the city gate, and the old king went to open it.

King: Who are you? What are you doing out in this terrible weather!

Princess: I´m a princess. Please help me. I am all wet, look at my clothes and hair!

Narrator: The king took the princess inside the palace, while she kept saying that she was a real princess.

Queen: (thinking) Well, we’ll soon find that out.

Narrator: The queen said nothing, she went into the bedroom, took all the bedding off the bedstead, and laid a pea on the bottom; then she took twenty mattresses and laid them on the pea, and then twenty eider-down beds on top of the mattresses. On this the princess had to lie all night. In the morning she asked the princess.

Queen: How did you sleep, my dear princess?

Princess: Oh, very badly! . I have scarcely closed my eyes all night. Heaven only knows what was in the bed, but I was lying on something hard, so that I am black and blue all over my body. It’shorrible!

Narrator: Now they knew that she was a real princess because she had felt the pea right through the twenty mattresses and the twenty eider-down beds. Nobody but a real princess could be as sensitive as that.
Prince: Now I know that you are the real princess that I was looking for. Do you want to marry me?

Princess: Yes, I want to marry you, kind prince!

Narrator: So the prince took her for his wife, for now he knew that he had a real princess; and the pea was put in the museum, where it may still be seen, if no one has stolen it.

A Man, His Horse and His Dog


Gate Keeper 1
Gate Keeper 2


Narrator: Once upon a time a man, his horse, and his dog were walking down the street.  After long hours of walking, the man noticed that they all had died in an accident, but they kept walking under the hot sun.  Sometimes dead people, don`t notice they are dead.

Man: I am so thirsty!  …(looking at the horse and the dog)  and you must be thirsty, too.

Narrator: Then the man saw some a pair of golden gates, a street, and a water fountain.

Man:  Wow!  Look at those golden gates!  And even the street is made of gold!  And there`s a water fountain… just what we need!

Narrator: When they arrived, a gate keeper was guarding the golden gates.  Then the man said.

Man: Good day

Gate Keeper 1: Good day

Man: What a beautiful place this is!

Gate Keeper 1:  This is heaven.

Man: Oh, it`s good to be in heaven.  We are really thirsty!

Gate Keeper 1: You can go in and drink some water.

Man: My horse and my dog are also thirsty.

Gate Keeper 1: I am sorry, but animals are not allowed to enter.

Man: Oh… I can`t leave my friends thirsty.  I prefer to leave this place.

Narrator: So the man, the horse and the dog kept walking.  After a long time, they were tired and thirstier.  Then they arrived to a place where there was an old gate.  Beyond those gates,  there was a road with trees on both sides, and there was another gate keeper lying under one of those trees.  The man approached the gate keeper and said.

Man: Good day.

Gate Keeper 2: Good day.

Man: My horse, my dog, and me are very thirsty.

Gate Keeper 2: Do you see those rocks over there?

Man: Yes.

Gate Keeper 2: There will you find a water fountain.  You can drink all the water you want.

Man: Thank you, good man.

Narrator: The man, the horse, and the dog drank all the water they could.  Then they returned to where the gate keeper was.

Man: Thank you very much.

Gate Keeper 2: You can come back whenever you want to.

Man: By the way… what is the name of this place?

Gate Keeper 2: This is heaven.

Man: Heaven?  But a few hours ago we were in heaven!

Gate Keeper 2: Are you talking about that place with the golden gates, and a street made of gold?

Man: Yes, that´s correct!

Gate Keeper 2: Well, that place was not heaven… that was hell.

Man: But then… that false information must be causing confusion.

Gate Keeper 2: Not really… in fact they are making us a big favor.

Man: How is that?  I don`t understand.

Gate Keeper 2: Now you will… people who are capable of abandon their best friends, stay over there.
