Hello! As today is both St George’s Day, and Shakespeare’s birthday, we are going to perform a play what I have written, telling the tale of St George!
Once upon a time, there was a king, who had loyal soldiers at his side.
One day, a messenger arrived in a terrible flap, and said that the princess had been captured by a terrible dragon! The soldiers must dash off and rescue her!
So the soldiers ran off as fast as they could, to confront the dragon and rescue the princess.
But when they found out the dragon could BREATHE FIRE, they ran away again as fast as they could!
But then a young chap called George turned up and said he wasn’t afraid of no dragon, and he’d sort it out.
So off he went, with his lance and shield, to find the dragon in its lair.
And when the dragon breathed fire at him, he just ducked behind his shield. And the dragon noticed the shield…
Well, it turns out, dragons are very fond of biscuits! It was quite happy to swap the princess for a more tasty snack.
So George returned the princess to her home safely, and everyone was jolly happy about it. And the king promised to replace the biscuit.
Thank you, ladies and gentlevaarks! Our play is at an end. *bow*
I say, dragon, do be careful! Still, glad to see Ernest is on the ball in his temporary job!
