1. OPENING SONG - ONCE UPON A TIME

At the start of every story
At the start of every book
There’s something special in the opening
At the beginning take a look

You can’t find it in the middle
You can’t find it at the end
It’s only there at the beginning
On which the story does depend
Does depend

At the start of a fairy story
Once upon a time
At the start of a fairy story
Once upon a time
Always there in a fairy story
doesn’t have to rhyme

Just say once upon a time
Just say once upon a time
Just say once upon a time

NARRATOR: Once upon a time there was a young girl called Cinderella.
CINDERS: Hello!
NARRATOR: Cinderella lives with her evil stepmother and two ugly sisters who spend all their time making her life miserable!
UGLIES: Hello!

2. CLEANING SONG

We’re washing, we’re washing
We’re washing up the plates
We’re sweeping, we’re sweeping
We’re sweeping with a broom
We’re cleaning, we’re cleaning
We’re cleaning all the clothes
we’re making, we’re making
We’re making up the bed
It’s a hard knock life for Cinderella

Aprons, rubber gloves
And cleaning fluid
hoovers, mop the floor
And dustbins bleach
Aprons, dettol wipes
And feather dusters
There are always jobs to do

We’re mowing, we’re mowing
We’re mowing up the lawn
We’re cooking, we’re cooking
We’re cooking up a feast
We’re dusting, we’re dusting
We’re dusting all the shelves
we’re wiping, we’re wiping
We’re wiping all the windows
It’s a hard knock life for Cinderella

Aprons, rubber gloves
And cleaning fluid
hoovers, mop the floor
And dustbins bleach
Aprons, dettol wipes
And feather dusters
There are always jobs to do

There are always jobs to do

feather duster dance break

There are always jobs to do

Year 1 and 2 exit SL and are moved out of the way by the Ugly Sisters.

UGLY1: Cinderella! Cinderella!
UGLY2: Where are you Cinderella!
CINDERS: I’m here doing all your cleaning. I wish you would help!
UGLIES: Us!!!
UGLY1: We’re busy making sure we look beautiful!
UGLY2: And lets face it - we clearly do!

3. UGLY SISTERS SONG

Look at how gorgeous I am
Look at how lovely my face seems to be
Look at how trendy I am
Look at how beautiful I’ve turned out to be

Look at my makeup it’s great
Look at my hairdo it’s something quite special
Look at my dress it’s the best
Who knew this frock could be found in Tesco

Snow White’s not got the edge on us
Rapunzel’s not as gorgeous as you or me
Dorothy’s not half as great as us
And Ariel can stay down under the sea

Sleeping beauty can stay asleep
We don’t care about Little Bo Peep
No one in the world is as gorgeous as us!

NARRATOR: The Ugly Sisters boasting was interrupted by a Royal Announcement.
ROYAL MAN: Ladies and Gentlemen, I come with exciting news. The Prince is to host a ball tonight to find himself a new girlfriend.
ALL: Oooohhh!!!
UGLY1: Well it’s a bit late notice!
UGLY2: We need to go shopping!
ROYAL MAN: See you all at the palace, partying til 1am! Everyone is invited!
ALL: Hooray!
CINDERS: I’ve always wanted to go to a Royal Ball!
STEPMOM: Well you won’t be going!
ALL: Oooohhh!!!
CINDERS: Please stepmother please I’d…
STEPMOM: You’ll be staying at home and cleaning this house. Look at the state of it!

The Ugly Sisters and Stepmother flounce away

CINDERS: Oh how I wish I could go to the ball tonight!
FAIR-E: Why Cinderella you can! I am your Fairy GodBrother, but you can call me Fair-E.
CINDERS: But I have nothing to wear.
FAIR-E: Don’t you worry about that, I’ve got magic yo - all you gotta do is believe in my poorly costumed rap persona!
CINDERS: I can do that!
FAIR-E: But homie listen up. You gotta be outta there by midnight yo! My magic runs out then, you dig?
CINDERS: Ok, I’ve got it!
FAIR-E: Right let’s drop this sick beat and get you ready for that ball sister!

PRINCE: Excuse me miss, would you like to dance? Huzzah!
CINDERS: If only there were a perfect tune played by a school orchestra for this special moment.
PRINCE: I’m sure that can be arranged. Huzzah! Goodrington Orchestra Assemble!
NARRATOR: They’re not the Avengers!

5. ORCHESTRA PERFORMS

NARRATOR: While the orchestra played the Prince and Cinderella danced and fell hopelessly in love.
UGLY1: Anyone would think it is Tinder the Musical!
UGLY2: Why isn’t he dancing with us? We’re gorgeous!
NARRATOR: Suddenly the clock struck midnight and Cinderella panicked. She ran from the Prince leaving behind a glass school shoe that looks like it is made from leather. It is magic after all, suspend your disbelief!

Cinderella runs away leaving one of her shoes behind. The Prince picks up the shoe.

PRINCE: Listen up everyone! Huzzah! I need to find that beautiful girl and this is the only clue I have.
NARRATOR: The Prince travelled around the kingdom searching for the girl who left behind the glass school shoe. He arrived at Cinderella’s house.
ROYAL MAN: This is the last house in the kingdom Sir.
PRINCE: Huzzah! Well she must be here then
UGLY1: Let me put on the shoe.
UGLY2: Let me put on the shoe first!
ROYAL MAN: It can’t be either of those things, look at the state of them.
UGLY1: Excuse me?
UGLY2: Who do you think you’re talking to.
PRINCE: Relax everyone. Huzzah! She must be here!
STEPMOM: Well she’s not.
FAIR-E: ‘Scuse me Bro, maybe try the shoe on this lady, yo. She’s the only one that has a shoe missing atm, ya know what I’m saying, bro?
NARRATOR: Cinderella put on the shoe and it fitted perfectly.
PRINCE: Well, let’s get married then. Huzzah!
STEPMOM: That’s a bit soon if you ask me.
PRINCE: Of course it isn’t! Everyone loves a Royal Wedding! Huzzah!4


6. IF THE SHOE FITS WEAR IT

If the shoe fits
you should wear it
if the shoe fits
don’t compare it
if the shoe fits just declare
if the shoe fits
(3 claps)
if the shoe fits

It doesn’t matter what kind of shoe
long as that shoe is fitting you
boots or plimsoles, sneakers or stilettos
wedges, converse, trainers from the ghetto!

If the shoe fits
you should wear it
if the shoe fits
don’t compare it
if the shoe fits just declare
if the shoe fits
(3 claps)
if the shoe fits

dance break

If the shoe fits
you should wear it
if the shoe fits
don’t compare it
if the shoe fits just declare
if the shoe fits
(3 claps)
if the shoe fits




CAROL LYRICS TO LEARN ALSO!!!


O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant
Oh come ye O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him
Born the King of angels;
O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
Christ the Lord.

God of God light of light
lo he abhors not the virgin's womb;
very God begotten not created:

Sing choirs of angels sing in exultation
sing all ye citizens of heaven above;
glory to God in the highest:


O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep,
The silent stars go by.
Yet in thy darkness shineth
The everlasting Light.
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God, the King,
And peace to men on earth.
For Christ is born of Mary,
And fathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.

How silently, how silently,
The wondrous Gift is giv'n!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still,
The dear Christ enters in.
..............................................................

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say
Mary's Boy Child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

Hark, now hear the angels sing
A New King's born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day."
Trumpets sound, and Angels sing
Listen to what they say.
That man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day.

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
They saw a bright new shining star
And heard a choir from heaven sing
The music came from afar

Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bear her Child
Not a single room was in sight

Hark the Herald Angels Sing
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Christ by highest heav'n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord!
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a Virgin's womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
