Queen's Diamond Jubilee Assembly in celebration of 1952 - 2012
This is one of three scripts now available on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The other two are:
1. The Queen's Diamond Jubilee assembly - about the Queen and her life, family, achievements etc.
2. The Queen's Diamond Jubilee assembly on the English Monarchy - this being a quick gallop from Alfred to our present queen!
The Queen's Diamond Jubilee assembly on the years 1952 - 2012 is an adaptation of my History of Rock n Roll assembly. This covers world events but with a musical twist (up to 34 suggested songs!)
These scripts can be bought individually or as part of a special 3 for 2 package. Buy 2 scripts online, and let me know which one you want free - I will then send all three scripts to you.
Narrator: And so to the 70s. Please someone tell me it wasn’t as crazy as the 60s! Not sure I can cope with much more!
Queen: Oh tush, man! I’m finding this highly entertaining!
(David Bowie and the Spiders from Mars walk on)
Music 14 Jean Genie – David Bowie
(Queen screams and covers her face with her hands. Narrator rushes over to placate her)
Narrator: Now, now, Your Majesty. Nothing to worry about! They might look weird but they’re really quite harmless!
Queen: (Gasping) But who are they?
Bowie: I’m David Bowie and these are the Spiders from Mars!
Queen: (Gasping) Spiders from Mars? Didn’t you just say I had nothing to worry about? I don’t remember there being an alien invasion any time in the 1970s?
(Enter Alice Cooper)
(Queen screams and dives for cover again)
Narrator: Calm yourself, m’lady! He, Alice Cooper, is also perfectly harmless
(Aside) when he’s not biting off heads of bats … or was it chickens?
Queen: (Screaming) I heard that! What kind of a monster is he?
Narrator: Oh, perfectly harmless I assure you! Sing us a song, Alice!
Music 15 Schools Out – Alice Cooper
(Alice Cooper performing, rest of cast joining in and cheering)
Narrator: Stop! Stop! We can’t have this anarchy! Not when we are entertaining our most gracious sovereign queen! I do apologise, Ma’am. I think our next ‘guest’ will be far more to your liking!
(Enter Donny Osmond)
Music 16 Puppy Love – Donny Osmond
Narrator: Ahhhh. That’s more like it. Donny Osmond here, and this other nice young man, David Cassidy.
(Stage invaded by screaming fans, chasing Donny and David off)
Narrator: Hmmm. Shame about the fans! Still, things did seem to be getting quieter!
Music 17 Come on Feel the Noise – Slade
Narrator: Oh no. Just when I thought things were getting better. These boys! What we need are some nice young ladies.
Music 18 Can the Can – Suzi Quatro
Bob Marley: Hey man. Take a chill pill. We weren’t all crazy in the 70s you know. Try a little reggae to sooth your brow, bro’!
Music 19 Jammin’ – Bob Marley
Narrator: (Swaying) Ah, that’s better, man. (Suddenly remembers where he is). Ooops! Sorry. I could really get into this Chillin’ Ting!
(Enter Sex Pistols)
Music 20 God Save the Queen – Sex Pistols
(Queen sits in state of total shock)
(Narrator rushes over to queen and offers her handkerchief to mop her brow)
Queen: Well! I’m not often lost for words but ….
Narrator: (Effusively) I’m so sorry, Your Majesty! I had no idea this punk band were performing here today! Whatever next!
Music 21 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
Narrator: Ah! Queen!
Narrator: No, that’s the name of the band, Your Majesty!
Queen: What? Named after me? Ah, splendid! (Looks quizzically at Freddie Mercury’s black leather trousers) Mmm. Not quite sure about the trousers ..
Music 22 Baggy Trousers – Madness
Queen: Ah! That’s better! Now. How about a few more current events. Where were we? Ah yes! The seventies!
