Snow White Right girls, time to start training. Let’s get physical. We need to become trained killers before we enter this she-witch’s lair.

Snow White Sorry, are you serious?

Cinderella Uh ha.

Rapunzel Really? That would be great. I have such a pain in my neck.

Snow White Guys come on!

Cinderella She’s not going to be able to fight Goblins with that mop hanging out of her head. 

Rapunzel That’s true!

Cinderella She looks like a blonde Chewbacca.

Rapunzel Hey!

Snow White That is a point I suppose. Right, here let’s lob it off. (She produces a knife)

Rapunzel Ahhhhhhh

Cinderella Snow darling, leave this to me.

Snow White I despair!

Enter Sam and Dandini

Sam So then in fourth class my teacher Mr Byrne said that I had puked in John Foley’s lunch box, but I didn’t puke in John Foley’s lunch box, Peter Redmond puked in John Foley’s lunch box but Mr Byrne blamed me for puking in John Foley’s lunch box because I once puked in Jake Kinsella’s lunch box but I never puked in John Foley’s lunch box and…

Dandini ENOUGH! I only asked you who you were I didn’t want your life story.

Sam Ahhh cause it gets really good , cause in fourth class on Fire Works night I was meant to meet Stacy Kehoe down by the train tracks for a shift but….

Dandini SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! Will you please shut up?

Sam Hey Dan! Dando, Danny Boy, Dan the Man, Danzel Wessington, Denis the Menace.  I thought we were friends.

Dandini No we are not friends we are two very bad Prince’s Aides who have failed their masters and find themselves stuck together on some crazy mission to take on an army of Goblin’s and a demented old hag in the hope of saving our Prince’s and not dying.

Sam Besties!

Dandini Listen you.

Sam We should make a secret handshake

Dandini If only I were 20 years younger.

Sam Or we could create our own language…

Dandini I would beat you senseless you…you…you…

Sam Sam!

Dandini Listen Sam, Do you have any idea where we are?

Sam I do, we are in the Deep Dark Woods, which is a gathering of very deep and dark woods and is hence known as the Deep Dark Woods.

Dandini I am aware of that by the deepness and the darkness of the woods around us, but do you know where we are going?

Sam Deeper and darker and woodier?

Dandini Listen you fool! We need to know where we are!

Sam Why don’t we try google maps?

Dandini You have google maps?

Sam Yes.

Dandini You have had google maps this whole time?

Sam Yeah it’s on my Galaxy tablet back at home. But sure do any of us really know where we are going? 

Dandini What?

Sam All we can do Dan is follow the road of life and see where it takes us. 

Dandini I’m going to die aren’t I?

Sam We are all going to die Danny.

Dandini Listen you simple child. Where are we going? 

Sam Dano, Desperate Dan, Danby Lodge do you trust me?

Dandini Oh yes you seem as reliable as VAR.

Sam Get in! Don’t mention that the Liverpool fan in the audience will get upset.


Listen I’m Sam! Just Sam. I’m Samazing! Remember that time my cousin Sam helped Frodo Baggins destroy the ring! What have I done? I need to be the Sam who saves his best friend Lance! Sam and Dandelion! Dan-the-Lion! Give me a roar Dan!

Dandini No.

Sam That’s good Dan I like it! We could start a podcast! We’re gonna make it! We may not be knights, we may not be heroes, we may not be brave, we may not know where we are going, we may …… we may go home san!


No we are not warriors but we have to try. Lance is not just my boss he’s my best bud too. So we are going to be knights.

Dandini Knights!

Sam We are going to be heroes!

Dandini Heroes!

Sam We are going to be brave!

Dandini Brave!


Dandini (Looking into the wing) Accept maybe three crazy looking princesses with weapons.

Sam Huh?

Enter Snow, Cinderella and Rapunzel. Snow carries her knife the other two carry sticks that 

are fashioned into weapons. They jump, spin, cart wheel in a heroic, Charlie’s Angel’s sort of 

way onto the stage.

Cinderella We are The League of Princesses!

Rapunzel Boom!

Snow White Drop your weapons, put your hands on your heads and don’t move a muscle. 



Dandini and Sam run wildly all over the stage roaring for around thirty seconds. They then 

run out of breath and collapse centre stage.

Snow White Are you finished?

Sam Hold on. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! Ahhh! Ah Ah Ah.

Snow White Finished now.

Sam Yeah.

Snow White Who are you and what’s your business?

Dandini Dandini Murphy. Professional Royal Aide to Prince Philip Charming. (Recognises Cinderella) Wait you are the girl from the ball. The one who ran.

Cinderella You work for Prince Charming.

Dandini Ah ha I found her, success, well done me, if only I hadn’t lost my Prince now. 

Snow White (Recognising Sam) You!

Sam Yes.

Snow White You’re a royal aide too right?

Sam Baby I can be whoever you want me to be.

Snow White You were with the hunky Prince Lance earlier.

Sam Hunky? Really, more average to fine. So you are Snow White. More like ‘snow good taste in men’. Am I right Dante?

Dandini The boys a fool.

Cinderella Clearly.

Dandini This is Cinderella the sprinter. And who might this other young lady be?

Rapunzel Rapunzel. 

Sam Rapunzel?

Snow White Oh wow wait one minute of course. Rapunzel is your lost Princess. Rapunzel, Sam is royal aide to the brother you have never met Prince Lance which makes you…

Sam (Walking to her) Princess Rapunzel.

Cinderella Wow this is better than Big Brother!

Sam (Nearly in tears) IIII can’t believe it’s you. Rapunzel.

Rapunzel III… I don’t understand.

Snow White Eh maybe we should give you guys a moment. 

Cinderella It’s ok Rapunzel. It will all be ok, I promise. 

Snow White We are just over here if you need us. 

Dandini In the wing.

Snow White   Move.

Exit Snow, Cinderella & Dandini.

Sam I can’t believe it’s you Princess.

Rapunzel Princess.

Sam I remember when you were born. It’s one of my first memories the day the royal twins were born. Riversend had never seen celebrations like it.

Rapunzel Riversend?

Sam Oh your Majesty….

Rapunzel Rapunzel.

Sam Rapunzel. (They share a look) they…they…what did you ask me again?

Rapunzel Why did my parents give me away?

Sam Look at you Rapunzel. How could anyone give away something so precious? They did everything they could to protect you but they had made a pact with Gothel and her magic was strong. They never gave up hope of finding you every year they send the burning lanterns into the air for you on your birthday, wait today!

Rapunzel Today is my birthday. All those years the burning lanterns were for me?

Sam For you Princess…for you Rapunzel. Happy Birthday.
