SCENES

 

NOTE: the staging of this play is extremely difficult. There are several scene changes that require a large crew to move the sets in and out. Sets should be as simple as possible to allow for quick changes.

 

ACT 1 SCENE 1 Ė Kids in living rooms, video of ZONE (or ZONE standing on a platform speaking)

 

ACT 1 SCENE 2 Ė KURTís school lunchroom (already on set behind screen or ZONEís platform)

 

ACT 1 SCENE 3 Ė Actors set up camp as part of scene (tents and fireplace). Crew can be dressed in black and clear lunch tables. The character of SPIRIT can have little spirits (the crew) that help with set changes. The UC backdrop can be of a really spooky trail.

 

ACT 1 SCENE 4 Ė L is the entrance to the cave. This can be in place before the play begins as long as it remains out of sight and unlit until this point in the play.

 

ACT 2 SCENE 1 Ė Camp again

 

ACT 2 SCENE 2 - Stage R where there is a ritual stone. Perhaps something like a Stonehenge arch. This can be in place from the start of the play or start of ACT 2.

 

ACT 2 SCENE 3 Ė Camp again

 

ACT 2 SCENE 4 Ė Ritual stone Ė R.

 

ACT 2 SCENE 5 Ė Camp again

 

 

 



ACT 1 SCENE 1

 

(Lights come up on a kid, ZANE, R who puts a video in a player and sits, hits play on a remote and starts watching a tv. A video is projected onto a large screen C with an odd looking man, ZONE, and cheesy text saying ďMagic Camp.Ē [note: if a screen and projection is not possible, have ZONE appear on a small platform center with a sign saying ďMagic Camp.Ē])

 

ZONE

Welcome toÖ Magic Camp.

 

(Cheesy magical effect on video. Other kids appear UR, UL and L. These are TRISTAN, MOON and BRIGIT)

 

ZONE (cont.)

If youíre watching this video, you have been specially selected for a summer pass toÖ Magic Camp.

 

ZANE

Yeah, right. Everyone kid in town probably got one of these.

 

ZONE (cont.)

Actually, only five children have been selected for this honor.

 

(ZANE looks around nervously because itís like ZONE is hearing him)

 

MOON

Children? Iím no child.

 

ZONE

Children was a poor choice of wordsÖ how about young adults?

 

(MOON is freaked out now too)

 

ZONE

Our counselors have identified each of you because of your unique abilities.

 

TRISTAN

What special abilities?

 

ZONE

Well, some of you may not know yet what these abilities are, but we can see the potential in you.

 

(Lights go off on kids. ZONE points to someone in the audience then his video fades and screen rises)

 

ACT 1 SCENE 2

 

(A school lunchroom appears [already on set behind screen or behind where ZONE was standing] with a table C and another table UC. JOEY sits at the C table. Heís a nerdy little kid who looks around nervously. KURT sits at a table behind him with his back to the audience eating hungrily. JAG is in shadows watching them. BILLY and BOB go up to JOEY)

 

BILLY

Hey, Joey.

 

BOB

Howís lunch?

 

(BOB dumps lunch into JOEYís lunch)

 

BILLY

Ooops. Looks like you lost your lunch.

 

(BILLY and BOB laugh. JOEY speaks quietly)

 

JOEY

Please leave me alone.

 

BOB

Whatís that? What he say?

 

BILLY

Donít know. I donít speak Loser!

 

(BILLY and BOB laugh again. KURT rises from his table but doesnít turn. He speaks in a low growl)

 

KURT

He said to leave him alone.

 

BOB

Hey, Joey. Looks like the new kid wants to join your loser club.

 

BILLY

That means a trip to the loser whirlpool.

 

BOB and BILLY

Swirly!

 

(BILLY grabs KURT by the arm and BOB goes for the other but KURT grabs them and lifts them up [note: have BILLY and BOB stand on table bench that hopefully can be hidden from audience view]. KURT has wild hair, almost like he has ears and heís got some shadow on his face like he already shaves and his eyes appear yellow [this would involve tinted contacts Ė only do this with professional consultation so eye damage doesnít occur])

 

KURT

Donít touch me.

 

(BILLY and BOB scream like little girls. KURT drops them down, he howls and they run)

 

KURT

You okay?

 

JOEY

Thanks.

 

KURT

Just howl if you need me again.

 

JOEY

Too bad this is the last day of school. With you, weíd rule this place.

 

KURT

Maybe next year then.

 

JOEY

Yeah!

 

(JOEY picks up his lunch and exits with new found confidence and lets out a little howl. KURT smiles and takes one last big bite of his lunch. JAG enters. Sheís dressed so you can hardly see her and she hangs by the shadows)

 

JAG

I like your style kid.

 

KURT

Who are you?

 

JAG

Have you ever heard of Magic Camp?

 

KURT

I got some stupid video in the mail about it.

 

JAG

But you didnít watch all of it.

 

KURT

I didnít have to. I know those videos. They get you all excited and then they flash some price you canít afford.

 

JAG

The camp is free.

 

KURT

Free? Yeah, right. Nothing is free.

 

JAG

This is. I already talked to your parents. Theyíre old friends. They said you could go.

 

KURT

Is this some camp for troubled kids? My parents have tried that before and you ainít got the cure for my troubles. They all act like they understand but they donít. Nobody knows what Iím going through.

 

(JAG steps into the light and removes her hood. We can see she looks like a jaguar [face painted and hair streaked with jaguar colors])

 

JAG

I do.

 

(KURT is stunned into silence. Lights fade to black. Everyone starts setting up tents and campfire is setup DC)

 

ACT 1 SCENE 3

 

ZONE

Okay, everyone, letís get the tents ready. The campers will be here soon.

 

(JAG, RUNT, SOL, and SPIRIT bring out tents that are already set up and place them R and L. RUNT is very small but has a grey beard. SOL wears bright colors and has very bright skin and SPIRIT wears flowing gowns that sparkle. She has sparkling skin as well)

 

SOL

This is just like when we first came to magic camp.

 

SPIRIT

Weíre all a lot bigger now.

 

JAG

Except for Runt.

 

RUNT

Very funny.

 

ZONE

Ready for the kids?

 

RUNT

Do we have a choice?

 

ZONE

No.

 

SOL

Then letís go camping!

 

(ZONE waves his hands and the kids appears in the light UC)

 

KURT

What was that?

 

MOON

I thought I was waiting for a bus.

 

TRISTAN

That was the quickest bus ride ever.

 

MOON

It was so quick we didnít even see the bus.

 

ZONE

Welcome to Magic Camp!

 

SOL

Where every day is magical.

 

MOON

Give me a break.

 

ZONE

Letís start with introductions.

 

SOL

Maybe we could play a name game.

 

(Kids grown and so does RUNT. SOL gives RUNT a disappointed look.)

 

RUNT

Hi, kids. My nameís Runt.

 

MOON

That will be easy to remember.

 

RUNT

Ha! I like this one.

 

SPIRIT

Fortunately, she isnít your charge. You, no doubt, would be a bad influence on her. Iím Spirit, your teach and mentor.

 

ZONE

Each of you has been assigned a mentor during this camp. A coach so to speak.

 

BRIGIT

Coach. I hate sports.

 

ZONE

This is better than sports actually. Your coach will be passing along special knowledge they have worked a lifetime to learn and perfect. Brigit. Your mentor is Runt.

 

(BRIGIT shakes hands shyly with RUNT)

 

BRIGIT

Nice to meet you.

 

(JAG steps into the light)

 

JAG

And Kurt and I have already met.

 

(KURT nods slightly. Other kids look at her in wonder)

 

TRISTAN

Is she for real?

 

SOL

Amazing isnít she? You must be TRISTAN. Iím Sol. Your coach.

 

(SOL shakes hands with TRISTAN and his fear of JAG disappears and he smiles)

 

TRISTAN

Great to meet you, Sol.

 

ZANE

What about me?

 

ZONE

Iím your teacher.

 

MOON

Five coaches and five kids. This is the weirdest camp ever.

 

RUNT

Just wait. Itíll get stranger.

 

(Kids look at each other nervously)

 

MOON

What is Magic Camp anyway?

 

ZONE

Good question. Itís a place where we help you discover the magic inside you.

 

MOON

Oh, great. Another cheesy, make you feel good, camp.

 

SPIRIT

This is real magic, Moon. Donít you believe in magic.

 

(MOON shrugs)

 

ZANE

So youíre saying you can teach us magic tricks?

 

ZONE

The magic is already inside of you. We are here to help bring it out.

 

SOL

Everyone has magic inside.

 

RUNT

But some have more than others.

 

SPIRIT

You five have the most powerful magic weíve seen.

 

TRISTAN

I donít understand. I canít do anything.

 

SOL

Not yet, but soon youíll be doing amazing things.

 

TRISTAN

How do you know?

 

ZONE

I did a spell. A magic detection spell that led us to the children with the most potential.

 

BRIGIT

Why kids?

 

SPIRIT

Itís too late for adults. They have too many barriers and canít discover their any magic without a lifetime of work. WeÖ donít have that much time.

 

MOON

What do you mean?

 

ZONE

She means that children learn so much quicker. And could you see your moms and dads going to camp for a summer?

 

(The kids chuckle at this thought)

 

KURT

My mom would freak if she didnít have room service.

 

ZANE

My dad would die without his computer.

 

SOL

Adults have way too many distractions. But kids know how to focus.

 

KURT

Youíve never talked to my teachers have you?

 

(BRIGIT is looking at JAG)

 

JAG

Do you have a question, Brigit?

 

BRIGIT

Well, we can see your magic pretty clearly. What about the others?

 

RUNT

I am close to the Earth.

 

JAG

In more ways than one.

 

RUNT

Funny. I can talk to the earth, the trees, the animalsÖ and I have to tell you, Moon. Thereís an ant who is pretty mad at you.

 

MOON

What?

 

RUNT

You stepped on his friend.

 

(MOON looks at her shoe)

 

MOON

Oh, man.

 

RUNT

And you might want to get him off your sock before he climbs up and bites you in revenge.

 

(MOON finds an ant and looks at him on her finger [note: ant canít be seen by audience so just pretend heís there])

 

MOON

Sorry about your friend little guy. Ow! He bit me.

 

(MOON flings ant)

 

BRIGIT

Donít hurt him!

 

(RUNT runs over to ant)

 

RUNT

OhÖ heís okay. But just be glad you canít understand him now. Wow, ants can curse up a storm when they want to.

 

TRISTAN

And Sol? What are your powers?

 

SOL

The power of happiness. I can bring joy to anyone.

 

MOON

Wow, thatís special.

 

SOL

Actually it is.

(SOL touches MOON and she tries to fight it but she breaks into a smile and skips around [or does a flip or something dramatic])

 

MOON

Wow.

 

SOL

See.

 

MOON

Promise me youíll never do that again.

 

(SOL laughs)

 

BRIGIT

What about you, Spirit?

 

SPIRIT

I have ghostly powers.

 

(SPIRIT waves her hands and takes a step back. The kids looks around amazed. The audience can see SPIRIT but the kids canít)

 

BRIGIT

Where did she go?

 

TRISTAN

She vanished.

 

SPIRIT

Iím still here, but you canít see me.

 

(MOON waves her hand at SPIRIT but misses)

 

SPIRIT

Or touch me.

 

(SPIRIT waves her hands and steps forward)

 

BRIGIT

Amazing.

 

MOON

What else can you do?

 

KURT

Wasnít that enough?

 

MOON

Sheís my mentor. I want to know.

 

SPIRIT

Many things. I can also speak to the dead.

 

MOON

Cool.

 

ZANE

And you, Zone?

 

ZONE

Iím a collector of magic. I have the ability to learn other peopleís magic.

 

MOON

Thatís possible?

 

SPIRIT

We can all learn more magic than we know now, but Zone is a much quicker study than the rest of us because of his ability.

 

MOON

So youíre the most powerful of all.

 

ZONE

This isnít a contest. I certainly canít do magic as well as the person I learn from, so in a duel of magic, I couldnít beat someone with their own powers.

 

MOON

Duel of magic? Letís see that now.

 

RUNT

No, thank you. Iím still sore from the last time we did one of those.

 

JAG

Not up for rematch huh?

 

SOL

What great introductions. Whatís next?

 

ZONE

Letís start out with some campfire stories.

 

MOON

But itís not even dark yet.

 

(ZONE waves his hand and the stage gets dark. Moonlight appears [blue light] and stars in the sky [white Christmas lights])

 

ZONE

How about a fire as well.

 

(ZONE points DC and campfire flame appears [tiny fan and light on red, yellow and orange cloth]. Kids are amazed)

 

RUNT

Show off.

 

SPIRIT

Come and sit, children.

 

(Kids come and sit by fire with ZONE in the middle. Other coaches sit behind the kids)

 

SOL

Tell them a nice story.

 

RUNT

Naw, this is camp. Something scary!

 

MOON

Yeah!

 

ZONE

Sure, letís do a scary story. Many years ago, when we were your age, we came to a Magic Camp very much like this one. And the camp was near a dark, spooky cave, very much like that one.

 

(ZONE points behind them and spooky lights and a cave appear. [NOTE: one option would be to do a video of ZONEís story and blow smoke onto stage and project the video through the smoke for a mystical look])

 

ZONE (cont.)

All of the kids were curious about the cave despite the warnings from the camp counselors said the cave was cursed.

 

(SOL makes scared sounds for dramatic effect. SPIRIT smiles at SOL and joins in with spooky sounds. RUNT rolls his eyes)

 

ZONE (cont.)

Despite the warnings, we all decided to explore the cave. One of us, Mark, convinced the others that the curse was just a way to keep us from finding powerful magic that was hidden away there. Mark led the way. When we found the entrance to the cave, it was covered with thorny vines. Mark didnít care. He ripped at the thorns, refusing to turn back. The thorns pieced his hands and they began to bleed badly. Then he began to change. He turned into a horrible monster before our eyes. We ran as fast as we could to camp and no one has seen Mark ever since.

 

(SOL and SPIRIT get carried away with their scary sounds. JAG gives SOL a poke and he screams. RUNT laughs)

 

BRIGIT

So no one went to save Mark? No one helped him?

 

ZONE

No one has been brave enough. No one has wanted to suffer the same fate and no one knows the cure. Iím afraid he is lost forever.

 

SPIRIT

Time for bed everyone.

 

RUNT

Yes, good-night.

 

TRISTAN

Youíre not leaving us alone are you?

 

ZONE

Yes, but there is a level 10 protection shield around this place. Well, everywhere except the path up to the cave.

 

SPIRIT

Boys over there. Girls over here.

 

SOL

Sleep well everyone.

 

(Coaches quickly exit leaving kids alone)

 

MOON

This has to be the most bizarre camp of all time. Did you get a good look at all of them? What a bunch of freaks.

 

KURT

Theyíre not freaks.

 

MOON

Look whoís talking. Youíre how old and youíre already shaving?

 

ZANE

Whatís your problem, Moon? They didnít force us to come here.

 

MOON

My parents did. What kind parents let their kids go to camp bizarro with a bunch of circus freaks.

 

KURT

(growls)

Quit calling them freaks.

 

(BRIGIT puts her hand on KURT. He stops.)

 

BRIGIT

Letís all get some rest.

 

MOON

But we just got here. And Iím not tired.

 

ZANE

Iím not either. Is it really night? It was just daylight not that long ago.

 

 

(They are all quiet. ZANE is looking up at the cave)

 

ZANE (cont.)

Letís go to the cave.

 

BRIGIT

What?

 

TRISTAN

ButÖ itís cursed.

 

MOON

Sure, letís go.

 

(MOON gets up. KURT shrugs and stands. ZANE does too)

 

TRISTAN

Youíre not leaving us alone are you?

 

(MOON turns)

 

MOON

You wonít be alone if you come with us.

 

BRIGIT

Iíll stay with you, TRISTAN.

 

TRISTAN

Okay.

 

(MOON follows ZANE and KURT up the dark path to the cave. BRIGIT and TRISTAN sit by the fire)

 

TRISTAN

Iím scared, Brigit.

 

BRIGIT

You want me to sing you a song?

 

(BRIGIT sings. TRISTAN starts to feel better but then wind comes and blows out the fire. Stage goes black. Noises are heard [crew dressed in black start setting up the scene. When one makes a big noise, they freeze]. In darkness:)

 

TRISTAN

What was that?

 

BRIGIT

Raccoons.

 

(They are quiet again. More movement and noise)

 

TRISTAN

You sure.

 

BRIGIT

No.

 

TRISTAN

Moon? Kurt? Zane?

 

(Big noise. TRISTAN and BRIGIT scream and run into darkness)

 

ACT 1 SCENE 4

 

(Lights come up on stage and we now see the cave L. ZANE, MOON and KURT approach. Moonlight lights their way)

 

MOON

Thereís a cave. That part of the story is true.

 

ZANE

But noÖ

 

(MARK growls from inside the cave)

 

MOON

That wasnítÖ

 

(MARK growls louder)

 

KURT

I can take him.

 

MOON

You really think thatís monster.

 

ZANE

I bet itís one of the coaches trying to scare us.

 

(MARK the monster bursts out of the cave. Heís in rags and all dirty and has vines all over him. KURT growls and jumps to defend ZANE and MOON. MARK attacks KURT. They roll on the ground. KURT is down and he is holding MARKís arms. He has huge claws and a large thorn in his hand. MOON and ZANE go to help KURT. MARK flings them away easily and goes at KURT again)

 

MOON

(yells)

Stop!

 

(MARK stops frozen. KURT moves away)

 

ZANE

Wow!

 

KURT

Time to even the score.

 

ZANE

Wait! Brigit can help him.

 

MOON

But sheís notÖ

(BRIGIT and TRISTAN run up)

 

ZANE

Brigit. Pull the thorn from his hand.

 

BRIGIT

WhoÖ ah! Monster!

 

ZANE

Itís Mark. Pull the thorn from his hand.

 

MOON

Heís breaking free!

 

ZANE

Hurry.

 

(BRIGIT runs up to MARK. MARK breaks free and grabs her. KURT puts MARK in a headlock. BRIGIT starts to sing and pulls the thorn from his hand. MARK screams and drops BRIGIT and throws off KURT. MARK runs into the cave)

 

TRISTAN

Thatís what was wrong with him, wasnít it? The thorn turned him into a monster. We saved him.

 

ZANE

Heíll turn back to normal again.

 

BRIGIT

How long will it take?

 

ZANE

Not long.

 

MOON

And how do you know that?

 

ZANE

The same way you did the freezy thing. What was that anyway?

 

MOON

Magic.

 

TRISTAN

You know magic?

 

MOON

So does Zane.

 

ZANE

I guess so.

 

MOON

You know things or see the future or something. You knew which way to go. You knew how to stop the monster. You knew that he was cured.

 

ZANE

It is like I can see things coming. Itís not like I know whatís going to happen next year or even tomorrow, but I seem to be able to see things a little bit before they happen.

 

MOON

When you turn 21, you need to give me a call. Weíre going to Vegas.

 

TRISTAN

So both of you have magic?

 

MOON

Iím guessing all of us do. Kurtís got the wolf thing going on. You, Iíve got no clue about though.

 

TRISTAN

Me neither.

 

ZANE

But the coaches saw something in all of us. Iím guessing they know more about our powers than we do.

 

MOON

And with you, a guess is a bit better than a guess.

 

TRISTAN

What about Brigit?

 

MOON

Zane, you asked her to get the thorn. Why?

 

ZANE

I knew she was the only one who could do it.

 

BRIGIT

Iím good with plantsÖ animalsÖ living things respond well to me. I canít speak to them like Runt, but living things do very well when Iím around.

 

MOON

The thorn was from a plantÖ

 

TRISTAN

So Brigit had the power to remove it.

 

KURT

That means weíre all a bunch of freaks.

 

(KURT grins at MOON who gives him a dirty look)

 

MOON

Some of us just look it more than others.

 

(KURT laughs. Heís just happy to have found others who are different)

 

TRISTAN

Iím not sure why they picked me though.

 

MOON

Maybe Zane knows what your power is?

 

ZANE

Nope.

 

TRISTAN

Maybe they made a mistake.

 

BRIGIT

Or maybe your powers havenít fully developed yet. Give it some time.

 

(MARK stumbled out of the cave and falls to the ground. The kids rush up to him but are cautious. MARK gets to his knees and then reveals that he is a handsome young man. MOON smiles)

 

MOON

Well, hello. You clean up nicely.

 

MARK

Where am I? Who are you?

 

BRIGIT

Youíve been under some kind of spell. You went to the forbidden cave and touched this torn whichÖ

 

MARK

Turned me into a monster.

 

MOON

But we saved you.

 

MARK

How long has it been?

 

ZANE

A long time. All the kids you were with that day are all grown up.

 

BRIGIT

But you didnít age at all.

 

MOON

At least there was some benefit to being a monster.

 

MARK

Trust me. It wasnít worth it. I have to get home. My mom and dadÖ they must be worried. They must have thought I was dead. (Angry) Why didnít they come looking for me? Why didnít the other kids tell them what happened to me?

 

MOON

Letís go ask them.

 

MARK

Theyíre here?

 

MOON

Theyíre adults nowÖ running a camp for us.

 

(MARKís eye narrow. Heís still angry)

 

MARK

Really?

 

MOON

Come on. Iíll show you.

 

(MARK gets up but stumbles a little. MOON and BRIGIT help him)

 

MARK

Thanks.

 

MOON

Happy to help.

 

MARK

Youíre making me feel better already.

 

(MOON, BRIGIT and MARK exit up the path UC. ZANE, TRISTAN and KURT watch)

 

ZANE

I have a bad feeling about this.

 

KURT

I can smell it on him. Heís bad news.

 

TRISTAN

We have to warn the girls.

 

ZANE

And donít get too close to him. Thereís somethingÖ

 

TRISTAN

What?

 

ZANE

I donít know yet.

 

KURT

Come on.

 

(TRISTAN, KURT and ZANE exit after them. Two mysterious figures, KING and MING, appear DR, watching them go. Both are good looking, but in goth style makeup and clothing. KING hisses as he speaks and MING is cat-like in her speaking)

 

KING

Sssso theyíve ressscued Mark.

 

MING

At last he is free.

 

(They do an evil laugh together, each trying to do a better evil laugh than the other. Then they disappear into the darkness)

 

 

ACT 2 SCENE 1

 

(Campground again. Kids return to camp with MARK. ZONE appears with the other coaches and meets them)

 

ZONE

I see you didnít listen to the warning and you all went to the cave anyway.

 

(Kids all look at each other nervously. No one knows what to say)

 

ZONE (cont.)

Good work, kids! You passed the first test. The test of bravery.

 

MOON

So we were supposed to do that?

 

SPIRIT

Sometimes you break the rules to do what is right.

 

ZANE

I had a feeling we should go.

 

ZONE

Trust those feelings, Zane, and they will take you far.

 

SPIRIT

Except to Vegas please.

 

MOON

You heard that?

 

SPIRIT

I was with you in case there was a problem.

 

KURT

A monster attacking me wasnít a problem?

 

JAG

It wasnít something you couldnít handle. You were challenged, but not outmatched.

 

MARK

Close.

 

ZONE

So, Mark. It is so good to see you.

 

MARK

I wish I could say the same. Look at me. Iím still a kid and youíre allÖ old.

 

SOL

Some people would love to stay young for as long as you did.

 

MARK

But as a monster?! I donít think so. I canít believe you all left me there for that long. What about my parents? Werenít they worried?

 

(Coaches all look at each other, not sure what to say)

 

MARK (cont.)

What?!

 

SPIRIT

Theyíre gone, Mark.

 

MARK

Dead?!

 

SPIRIT

Iím afraid so.

 

MARK

What? How?!

 

SPIRIT

Itís a long story.

 

MARK

I still want to hear it.

 

SPIRIT

This isnít a good time.

 

MARK

Itís the perfect time. I want to know.

 

SPIRIT

Please, come with me. Letís not talk in front of the others.

 

MARK

Why? Did you do something to them? Is it your fault theyíre dead? You donít want these guys to know what horrible people you are? Leaving me a monster. Doing something to my parents when they tried to find me.

 

(SOL tries to touch MARK and calm him down)

 

ZONE

Itís not like that.

 

(MARK pulls away from SOL)

 

MARK

Get away from me.

 

(MARK runs R and disappears in the darkness)

 

ZONE

Mark, no!

 

SPIRIT

Iíll see if I can find him.

 

(SPIRIT exits after him)

 

MOON

What was that all about?

 

ZONE

Markís upset.

 

MOON

Well, duh!

 

ZONE

Itís like heís been asleep for a long time and suddenly heís back and the world has completely changed.

 

BRIGIT

That must be so hard.

 

ZANE

What happened to his parents?

 

ZONE

Itís best if we wait to speak about that later. Sleep well everyone.

 

(Coaches exit)

 

BRIGIT

So his parents are gone?

 

MOON

I wonder what happened to them?

 

ZANE

We might as well get some sleep. I can promise you we wonít find out any time soon.

 

BRIGIT

Good-night everyone.

 

TRISTAN

Good-night. Sleep well.

 

(Lights fade as they head for the tents)

 

ACT 2 SCENE 2

 

(Lights come up on R where there is a ritual stone. Perhaps something like a Stonehenge arch)

 

MARK

I canít believe they let this happen to me.

 

KING

It comes as no surprise to us.

 

MARK

Who are you?

 

MING

Old friends of your parents.

 

MARK

Really? You knew them?

 

KING

We were very closssse.

 

(SPIRIT arrives and watches from the shadows)

 

MARK

Do you know what happened to them?

 

MING

No, but the coaches were there. They know how they died.

 

MARK

Why wonít they tell me?

 

KING

Maybe one of them did the honorssss.

 

MARK

Do you think one of them killed my parents?

 

MING

Puurrr-haps.

 

MARK

But why? They were all my friends when I was a kid.

 

KING

They were thinking of the future maybe. You were a tool that would help them train these new onessss.

 

MING

Maybe you parents got in the way of their plan.

 

MARK

They never seemed like killers. They were all such goody-goodies.

 

KING

Thossse are the worssst kind. Pretending to be good to your faceÖ

 

MING

But ready to stab you in the back.

 

MARK

You really think they were just using me?

 

KING

Why didnít they ssssave you ssssooner?

 

MING

Why wait for these children?

 

(MARK stops a moment)

 

MARK

Fine. Youíre making some going points, butÖ why should I trust you? I do I know youíre not trying to trick me. You say you were friends of my parents, but I donít remember you.

 

KING

Ssssmart boy.

 

MING

You are wise not to trust strangers.

 

KING

But can you really trussst your old friendsss?

 

MARK

I canít trust anyone.

 

MING

Fair enough.

 

KING

But we can help you find the killer.

 

MARK

My parentsí killer?

 

KING

Yesssss.

 

MING

We have a stone that can render their magic useless. Without their powers, they wonít be able to defend themselves and theyíll have to tell the truth.

 

KING

But the magic only works if they are bound to this ritual rock.

 

MARK

How do we manage that?

 

MING

Use the children to lure them here.

 

KING

The children will be bait. If they try to fight, then the children will suffer for it.

 

MARK

This doesnít sound right to me.

 

MING

Do you want to find out the truth or not?

 

MARK

I have to think about it.

 

KING

Thereíssss no time.

 

MING

It wonít be long before they discover our plans. One of them is probably watching us as we speak.

 

(MING looks with cat eyes around. She stares at where SPIRIT is. SPIRIT freezes and hopes she isnít seen)

 

KING

Theyíll never tell you what really happened. Our way is the only way to getting the truth.

 

MARK

You have to promise none of the kids will be hurt.

 

MING

Once they know weíre trying to help you, theyíll probably join in catching the adults.

 

KING

You can use your sssspecial charmssss.

 

MARK

You know about my powers?

 

MING

The power of charisma.

 

KING

You can charm othersss, canít you?

 

MARK

Iím good at getting people to do what I want, yes.

 

MING

Do we have a deal?

 

MARK

Promise you wonít hurt the kids and we have a deal.

 

KING

The kids will ssssuffer no bodily harm. We promise.

 

MARK

Fine. So what do you get out of all this?

 

MING

We get magic.

 

KING

The ssstone will transfer their magic to us.

 

MARK

But youíll give it back right?

 

(MING and KING look at each other)

 

MARK

If they are innocent and they didnít hurt my parents, youíll give their magic back?

 

MING

If they are innocent of any crimes related to your parentsí deathÖ perhaps.

 

MARK

Perhaps?

 

KING

Do you want anssswerssss or not?

 

MARK

Fine. But if starts to go wrongÖ Iíll be charming the two of you.

 

MING

Bring us the children and then weíll all get what we want.

 

MARK

Iíll be back soon.

 

KING

Weíll be waiting.

 

(MARK exits. SPIRIT does too)

 

 

MING

Do you think heíll do it?

 

KING

He ssseemsss like he might.

 

MING

If he doesnít?

 

KING

He mussst. He issss the key to our ssuccessss.

 

MING

And if he doesnít do it, weíll still his power and use it ourselves.

 

(They do their evil laugh contest and lights fade to black)

 

 

ACT 2 SCENE 3

 

(Lights come up C on campground. Coaches are sitting around the fire waiting for SPIRIT who returns. Kids poke their heads out of the tents after the coaches start talking)

 

SPIRIT

Mark ran to the ritual rock. He ran into a couple of old friends.

 

JAG

Who?

 

SPIRIT

Ming and King.

 

RUNT

Oh, great. I should have known those two would show up.

 

ZONE

This is why we donít all meet together all the time. Evil senses our magic and is drawn to it. With the addition of the children, we must be creating a serious draw.

 

RUNT

We should rent out our services to grand opening events.

 

JAG

Be serious for once please.

 

RUNT

So what are we going to do?

 

ZONE

This is getting too dangerous. We should send the kids home. Ming and King arenít afraid to hurt them.

 

RUNT

We must finish this before it becomes something we canít handle.

 

JAG

I agree. We canít sit and wait for them to attack. We must confront them now.

 

RUNT

We will face them together. Ten against two. They donít stand a chance.

 

SPIRIT

I donít agree.

 

ZONE

I donít either.

 

JAG

We can leave it up to the kids. I have a feeling theyíd want to help and I believe their powers could be useful.

 

SPIRIT

Theyíre not ready for this kind of conflict. There hasnít been any time to prepare them.

 

SOL

Perhaps this will be the best training for them. We know you are listening, children. Please come out and talk with us.

 

(The kids come out of their tents)

 

BRIGIT

Is Mark in trouble?

 

ZONE

Yes, Iím afraid he is.

 

MOON

What can we do?

 

KURT

Let us help.

 

ZONE

You must stay away from the ritual stone and Ming and King until we come up with a plan. Whatever you do, donít talk to Mark. He has powers too so itís important you donít speak with him. Ignore him and youíll be safe.

 

(Coaches go)

 

MOON

Ignore him? Thatís terrible. The guy has lost everything and we have to ignore him.

 

TRISTAN

It sounds way too dangerous to me. I donít even have any powers yet. Iíd be doomed for sure.

 

ZANE

TRISTANís right. We shouldnít go.

 

BRIGIT

And if Zane thinks itís bad, I trust him.

 

MOON

How can Ming and King be so powerful that our coaches canít take them?

 

KURT

They must be pretty powerful.

 

(MARK enters)

 

MARK

Theyíre just afraid. And fear makes them weak.

 

MOON

Mark! Youíre okay!

 

BRIGIT

We were so worried.

 

MARK

Iím fine. I just needed some time alone.

 

ZANE

With Ming and King?

 

MARK

How did you know about them? Is that your magic?

 

MOON

No, Spirit was spying on you.

 

MARK

Figures. She doesnít trust me. She never did.

 

TRISTAN

SoÖ are Ming and KingÖ dangerous.

 

MARK

No. In fact they want to help me.

 

BRIGIT

How?

 

MARK

They are going to help me find the one who killed my parents.

 

MOON

They know who did it?

 

MARK

No, but they can help me find out.

 

BRIGIT

How?

 

MARK

They think of you has the power to do it.

 

MOON

So that explains why they were acting so weird about us helping.

 

MARK

They donít want you to help, do they?

 

MOON

Of course not.

 

MARK

Theyíre afraid of what youíll find out.

 

ZANE

Are you thinking that one of the coaches did something to your parents?

 

MARK

Seems possible.

 

ZANE

Iím not convinced.

 

MARK

It makes sense to me. They stopped my parents from saving me because they knew theyíd get in trouble.

 

TRISTAN

Huh?

 

MARK

They let me get turned into a monster so my parents would be mad at them for doing it to me. Theyíd get in trouble.

 

KURT

That doesnít seem like a good reason to kill someone.

 

MARK

Whatever. Maybe someone else did it. But they know who did it. They know what happened to my parents and they wonít tell me. I have a right to know.

 

BRIGIT

Maybe itís so horrible that they want to protect you.

 

MARK

I donít care. I still want to know. Will you please help me?

 

MOON

But which one of us has the power to help?

 

MARK

I donít know.

 

KURT

Ming and King didnít tell you?

 

MARK

Iím not sure they know either, but theyíre sure one of you has the power to help.

 

MOON

Iíll bet itís TRISTAN. We donít know his power yet. Maybe he can see the past or the truth or something.

 

MARK

Maybe, but Iíd like you all to come to be sure.

 

TRISTAN

Sorry, but Iím not going. Itís too dangerous. The coachesÖ

 

MARK

Theyíre wrong. Ming and King wonít do anything to you. They didnít hurt me.

 

ZANE

This doesnít make sense. Why are they helping you?

 

MARK

Theyíre old friends of my parents. They want to get some answers too.

 

MOON

That makes sense.

 

ZANE

We should talk to the coaches about this.

 

MARK

You know what theyíll say. They wonít let you help me.

 

MOON

Iíll help you, Mark.

 

BRIGIT

I will too.

 

MARK

Thank you so much. This means everything to me.

 

KURT

Iíll go too. I hate waiting around anyway.

 

ZANE

But what if itís a trap?

 

KURT

That will be fun too. Either way, I win.

 

MARK

Thereís no way youíll go, Zane? TRISTAN?

 

TRISTAN

Nope.

 

ZANE

Please donít go. I know itís not the right thing to do.

 

MARK

The right thing for who?

 

ZANE

Please everyone, listen to me.

 

MARK

And what if this is another test from the coaches? Like when you saved me? Youíre going to fail.

 

ZANE

I donít think so.

 

(MARK turns to MOON, BRIGIT and KURT)

 

MARK

Letís go everyone.

 

(They start to go. MARK pauses and points to ZANE and TRISTAN)

 

MARK (cont.)

If it turns out that one of you has the powers I need, then Iím coming back for you too, whether you like it or not.

 

(MARK exits)

 

TRISTAN

What do we do?

 

ZANE

I donít know.

 

(Lights fade to black)

 

ACT 2 SCENE 4

 

(Lights come up R on ritual stone area. MARK leads MOON, BRIGIT and KURT)

 

MARK

Ming? King? I brought some of them.

 

(MING jumps out like a cat. KING slithers out of hiding)

 

KING

Only sssssome of them?

 

MING

We must have them all.

 

KURT

Why? What if we have the power you need to help Mark?

 

MING

You donít.

 

(KURT and MING face off)

 

KURT

How can you know?

 

(KING stops MING from attacking KURT)

 

KING

We need all over you. Your combined ssstrength is what we need. Your powerssss joined will give us the power we need.

 

BRIGIT

Power for what?

 

MING

Power for anything. Power to help Mark. Power to help all of you.

 

KING

You donít need those sssilly coaches. Join ussss and know the real power of your magic.

 

KURT

Forget it. Zane was right. This is a trap.

 

(KURT howls and jumps at MING who hisses but is knocked down. KING does a two finger strike to KURTís neck and he passes out)

 

MARK

Please donít fight this. You canít turn back now.

 

KING

Join us or be ssssacrificed.

 

MOON

I will join you.

 

MING

Purr-fect!

 

(MARK takes MOONís hand happily. MOON doesnít look too happy though)

 

BRIGIT

Moon, no!

 

KING

What about you, Missss?

 

BRIGIT

Iíll never join you.

 

KING

Then youíll be our first sacrificsssse.

 

(KING and MING tie ropes around her arms and hang her in the stone arch. MOON goes to BRIGIT)

 

MOON

Please, Brigit. All you have to do is say youíll join them and you wonít have to die.

 

KING

Ssssilly girl. Weíre not going to kill her.

 

MING

Weíre merely draining her of her powers.

 

BRIGIT

You can take my powers from me?

 

(KING holds up a rock [rock needs to be something like a sponge or plastic container that can look solid but when squeezed, liquid will come out])

 

KING

Thisss ssstone has the power to drain magic.

 

(MING takes it from KING)

 

MING

Hold it to their heart and it will suck away their powers.

 

KING

Then you sssssqueeze the rocks and drink the magic.

 

MOON

How can you squeeze a rock?

 

MING

Watch.

 

(MING goes up to BRIGIT and touches the rock to her heart. Lights flash, thunder booms and BRIGIT screams. Lights go out a second. Then slowly come up. Stone might look different in some way now. MING and KING look at it excited. MOON runs up to BRIGIT who looks like she passed out)

 

MOON

Brigit? Are you okay?

 

BRIGIT

Not really.

 

MOON

Thank goodness youíre alive.

 

KING

Now we will drink.

 

(TRISTAN and ZANE runs in with ZONE and SOL. JAG jumps from above and knocks down MING. If possible, RUNT comes from the ground to grab KINGís legs. SPIRT jumps out and grabs KINGís hand before he can strike)

 

MING

No!

 

(JAG struggles with MING)

 

JAG

What did you do to Kurt and Brigit?

 

KING

Kurt is merely stung. We needed him alive.

 

(MOON snatches the rock from MING)

 

MOON

They used this rock to drain Brigitís magic.

 

MING

Give that back!

 

(MING breaks free and grabs MOON. She puts her claws to MOONís throat)

 

MING (cont.)

Make a wrong move and she dies.

 

(Everyone stops)

 

MING (cont.)

Let King go.

 

(They do)

 

MING (cont.)

Come, Mark. We must go.

 

MARK

But I want to know what happened to my parents.

 

KING

Thereísss no time for that. Letís go.

 

MARK

Weíll make the time. No one leaves until I get an answer.

 

(MING and KING pause)

 

ZONE

Itís hard to tell Mark no. Thatís his magic.

 

MARK

Zone. Please tell meÖ what happened to my parents?

 

(ZONE looks a long moment at him and shakes his head)

 

ZONE

Iím afraidÖ you killed them.

 

MARK

What?

 

ZONE

We did tell them what happened to you. They went to rescue youÖ and that monster that youíd becomeÖ it killed them.

 

MARK

No! Itís not true.

 

(MARK turns to run. MOON stops him and holds him)

 

ZONE

Thatís why we didnít want to tell you, Mark.

 

(KING and MING take the distraction as a moment of weakness. MING slashes RUNT with her claws. JAG jumps at her but KING stuns her with his two fingers and then gets SPIRT. ZONE jumps to protect MARK and MOON and MING slashes him. SOL defends TRISTAN and ZANE. MING looks at SOL)

 

MING

What you going to do, Sol? Make us laugh to death?

 

ZANE

TRISTAN, you have the power to put an end to this.

 

TRISTAN

I do?

 

ZANE

Yes, hold out your hands. And touch them.

 

TRISTAN

What?

 

ZANE

Do it!

 

(TRISTAN holds out his hands and ZANE pulls SOL out of the way)

 

SOL

You sure about this?

 

(MING and KING do their evil laughs and then stop as TRISTAN gets closer. They suddenly get fearful and then very sad as TRISTAN gets closer)

 

MING

What is he doing?

 

KING

I feel ssssoooÖ ssssad.

 

(MING and KING fall to their knees)

 

ZANE

Touch them, TRISTAN!

 

(TRISTAN looks at ZANE reluctantly. SOL nods encouragingly. TRISTAN touches them and the burst into tears)

 

MING

Mommy!

 

KING

Iím ssssooo ssssorry!

 

MING

Please mommyÖ come back to me.

 

KING

I didnít mean to hurt you.

 

SOL

This is amazing. He has the opposite of my powers. He brings sadnessÖ and remorse.

 

MING

Please help me find my mommy.

 

KING

Please donít die. I never meant to do this to you.

 

SOL

Theyíre reliving their saddest moments.

 

MING

MakeÖ itÖ stop.

 

SOL

Promise to leave here and Iíll tell him to step away.

 

MING

Yes.

 

SOL

Promise.

 

KING

We promissse.

 

SOL

TRISTAN, stop please.

 

(TRISTAN lets them go. MING and KING struggle to their feet and go)

 

MOON

That was incredible.

 

ZANE

Powerful stuff.

 

TRISTAN

I do have powers!

 

SOL

I knew you were a powerful one. I sensed it.

 

ZONE

Is everyone okay?

 

(Everyone is recovering. ZANE helps BRIGIT down)

 

BRIGIT

My magic. Itís gone.

 

ZONE

We will return it to you.

 

(MOON gives the rock to ZONE. ZONE squeezes the rock over BRIGIT and the magic comes out in liquid form)

 

BRIGIT

I can feel it returning to me.

 

(BRIGIT reaches up and wipes away ZONEís scratch marks)

 

SOL

She can heal!

 

(BRIGIT touches KURT who wakes up and then SPIRIT and RUNT. She then heals JAG)

 

SOL (cont.)

You are all so wonderful. So much potential.

 

ZONE

With time, you will all be very powerful indeed.

 

MOON

I wish you could heal Mark too.

 

SPIRIT

Perhaps I can help.

 

MARK

How?

 

SPIRIT

I can speak to the dead. Would you like to talk with them?

 

MARK

You can do that?

 

SPIRIT
It takes a great deal of my magic to do so, but I would like to do this for you.

 

MARK

Please.

 

SPIRIT

Everyone sit in a crescent shape and face the moon.

 

(A full moon is rising upstage. Everyone sits in a semi-circle downstage, facing the moon)

 

SPIRIT (cont.)

I call on the parents to Mark Mathews. Roger and Anna. Mathews. Your son wishes to speak with you.

 

(Lights flash. Boom of thunder. Darkness. Then moonlight appears and two shadows are upstage)

 

MARK

Mother? Father?

 

ANNA

Mark?

 

ROGER

Son?

 

ANNA

Are you okay?

 

(MARK stands)

 

MARK

These kids. They saved me. Iím human again.

 

ROGER

Weíre so glad, son. So very glad.

 

ANNA

We knew you would be free one day. There had to be a way.

 

MARK

IÖ Iím so sorry.

 

ROGER

It wasnít you, son. It was the monster.

 

ANNA

You didnít have any control.

 

MARK

I should have. I never should have hurt you.

 

ROGER

We pushed you too hard.

 

ANNA

We wanted you free so badly. We forced your hand.

 

ROGER

Please donít blame yourself.

 

(Long pause)

 

ANNA

We love you, Mark.

 

SPIRIT

They are leaving.

 

MARK

Please. I need more time.

 

SPIRIT

Iím losing the connection.

 

ROGER

Weíll always be with you, son. Just think of us and weíll be close by.

 

MARK

I miss you so much already.

 

BRIGIT

Wait!

 

(BRIGIT runs toward the shadows)

 

SPIRIT

Brigit, no!

 

(BRIGIT grabs the shadows. Lights flash. Booming thunder. Lights go black)

 

MOON

Brigit!

 

MARK

Mother! Father!

 

ZONE

Everyone stay where you are?

 

ZANE

Please. Itís okay.

 

ZONE

Light!

 

(Lights come up and BRIGIT is holding the hands of ROGER and ANNA)

 

MARK

It canít be?

 

SPIRIT

Theyíre alive.

 

(MARK runs to them. They hug him)

 

MARK

How did youÖ

 

BRIGIT

I donít know really. I just knew I could help them somehow.

 

SPIRIT

This is impossible.

 

ZONE

Nothing is impossible with magic, Spirit.

 

(RUNT goes to BRIGIT)

 

RUNT

You are one powerful little kid. Be careful how you use that magic.

 

BRIGIT

I will.

 

(Lights fade to black)

 

ACT 2 SCENE 5

 

(Lights come up on the camp. SOL and TRISTAN side on either side of RUNT. They take turns making him laugh and cry)

 

RUNT

Okay, okay. Thatís enough.

 

SOL

Thank you, Runt for help us today.

 

RUNT

Sure, sure. Iím just glad this will be the last day for awhile.

 

TRISTAN

I wonder what would happen if we grabbed him at the same time.

 

SOL

Yes. I wonder.

 

RUNT

Well, youíll have to wonder until next year.

 

(RUNT stays clear of them)

 

SPIRIT

Well, the rest of the camp this summer has been rather uneventful.

 

MOON

But Iíve learned a great deal.

 

KURT

But itís been so boring.

 

JAG

Tell you what. I promise to ambush you at least once a month this year.

 

KURT

Make it totally unexpected.

 

JAG

Of course.

 

KURT

Good. Something to look forward to.

 

ZONE

We all have much to look forward to. Your magic is growing stronger by the day. Next summer promises to be a good one.

 

ZANE

I even have a feeling next summer will be more exciting.

 

BRIGIT

Is that good or bad?

 

ZANE

I canít tell.

 

RUNT

Good. I want it to be a surprise.

 

ZONE

Now for your homework.

 

KURT

Homework!

 

(Each coach gives a pile of books to each student)

 

ZONE

Just a little reading for next summer.

 

MOON

A little reading. I donít see this many books in an entire school year.

 

SPIRIT

And whose fault is that?

 

(MOON is embarrassed)

 

MOON

WellÖ

 

ZONE

Study these books closely. Weíll have a test of your new knowledge when you return.

 

KURT

A test? Oh, great.

 

JAG

It wonít be a written test.

 

RUNT

Or even those annoying little bubbles.

 

SPIRIT

It will be a test of your powers.

 

ZONE

The knowledge in these books will help you survive next summer.

 

TRISTAN

Survive?

 

ZONE

Learn these lessons well and youíll live to see the end of next summer too!

 

(ZONE waves his hands. Lights go black. Boom of thunder)
