A normal school lunch, Henry and his friends sit at one table.
Hey guys, did you see me hit that nerd.
OFF STAGE VOICE
Oww my spleen!
Yeh man, That was awesome
(The Principal is wearing the hat)
NEXT FRIEND (Very Loud Whisper)
Dude, the principal brought his hat today
You know what that means
(sneaks up behind the principal and steals the hat, the principal doesn’t see who stole the hat but he thinks Henry’s table might have)
Hey Nerd! Catch!
(Then throws it off stage)
OFF STAGE VOICE
My Spleen! Again..
2 hours detention, after school
Don’t be late. The whole table.
(Whispers of Anger)
You're free to go
And make sure I have my hat Tomorrow
(Students file out, Henry stays behind for a few seconds)
(Henry walks out and waits at door )
I would get in a lot of trouble if I let you in
(Lets in Dog)
(Runs to library)
Whatcha got there boy?
(picks up book)
Huh, The Mermaid
(Starts reading book)
(Yawns) I'm tired
(Henry wakes up)
Where am I? What a beautiful ocean.
(walks towards ocean and starts swimming)
(Coral watching him with dreamy eyes)
The current is getting stronger! I don't know if i can take this any longer.
(struggling to swim, Henry finally gives up right as Coral comes and brings him to land)
What?! What did you say?
I don't usually talk like this the evil king cast a spell and he won't break it until he gets his crown back, I can’t talk normally. (Sad) All of us merpeople can’t.
I have to get the crown for you, if it's the last thing I do. Here I’ll ask those men over there to help carry you. I won’t leave you behind.
Oh thank you, you have to go to the wise man in the jungle he will tell you where to go from there
(Henry walks on the stage to the old wise man’s house, Coral is carried after him)
Is anyone in there? I am looking for some old wise man.
(Old man opens door)
OLD WISE MAN
What do you want with me?
I seek the King’s crown so that I can save my friend here, Coral. She has language issues along with all of the merpeople.
(Coral tries to talk but fails and is sad)
OLD WISE MAN
You are sure are a noble person. I have heard of 3 fairies that once tried to find the crown but they never quite found it. Rumour has it that they might know where it is. Here is a map to their location.
(Gives Henry map)
Why thank you!
OLD WISE MAN
I hope you can find the crown and help us all, but for now I say farewell
(Old wise man walks off stage)
(Henry looks at map, fairies come on stage)
Hey do you know of three fairies that live around here?
We are the three fairies! Who sent you here?
The Old Wise Man in the jungle sent me. I have an urgent mission to save my Girlfriend, Coral. We want to find the King’s lost crown.
The Crown is in the deepest darkest part of the ocean.
You will need 3 magical jalapeno peppers to accomplish your task.
They will help you breathe underwater and get to the King’s Palace.
(Inkle reaches in her pocket)
Inkle where are the jalapenos?!
Girls I really need those jalapenos!
(Twinkle calls for the jalapenos, they run on stage)
I found them!
Thank you girls very much!
You’re welcome! Now go save you friend.
Oh thank you!
(Coral has difficulty talking)
(Henry grabs a boat and rows out to the middle of the ocean)
Coral are you sure you can do this?
I’ll be fine, besides the spell only affects my speech.
Okay then let's go! You there Jalapeno do your magic.
(Does a special dance and runs off stage)
Now for the moment of truth.
(Henry and Coral dive under the water)
(Sharks off to the side see them and watch their descent)
KYLER - SHARK 1
Oh look what we have here! It’s dinner time.
GABE - SHARK 2
They looks tasty!
(The Sharks start to circle)
Hey guys I don't want to start anything ok?
Well it looks like it isn't your day then
SARA - SHARK 3
(The sharks start to attack Henry)
YAH! Take that stupid sharks
(Coral swats the sharks with her tail)
(The sharks don’t give up yet and circle around for another attack)
I don’t think we can defend against them all again!
(As the sharks charge the Merpeople charge from offstage)
Umm… ok your turn dude.
Noooo Way! I'm done, let's get out of here
(The Sharks leave, when the Merpeople talk they have speech problems)
Thank you for saving us, but why are you here? So far from the Kingdom?
We were searching for you Coral.
Are you the merman that has the crown
Indeed I am, here it is
(Isaac pauses to look at it)
Thanks, this will be very helpful.
(Isaac eats the last jalapeno then flies away to the castle)
(Walking up to the king's palace)
Who goes there? Show yourself!
I am Henry and I request access to speak to the king.
Pff! You fool! Nobody can enter the palace without consent of the king himself. (Whispers loud enough to hear) ever since the crown was stolen…
(Henry takes the crown out of bag)
Hey Williams! Come over here.
Sir Williams (Offstage)
Hey wait I’m textin’ me mum ‘bout suppa. (Accent)
Hey, don’t you remember she got locked up for stealing cheese?
Oh, yeh… Sad times...
(Sir Williams comes over)
Oh, who is this now? Where’d you get that crown! Sir Smith, do you know who this is?!
Nevermind that, I must give it to the king.
Very well, but we will have to escort you to him.
(Henry follows him inside)
(Enter the throne room)
(They bow before the king)
Who wishes to see the king?
A lowly peasant. Calls himself “Henry”.
Henry the Hippo?
No! It’s just some kid named Henry!
Ah, whatever.. Bring him in.
(We all walk in)
(The king sits in his throne)
Who goes there!
(Henry suddenly wakes up and the principal walks in and then Henry realizes that the king is the principal)
“Wait the principal looks a lot like the king, now I remember the reason I had the dream about the king and his crown is because I stole the principles hat, maybe if I give the principal his hat back I won’t have the dreams anymore”
“Where is my hat, if You don’t find it there will be even more consequences for the whole grade”
“Umm I found it in the hall yesterday, here it is”
(hands the principal his hat)
“Thank you for finding my hat, you may be excused”
