This Key Stage II Class play follows on from two other assemblies (KSI & II) on the Wonders of the Natural World - under the title of Awe and Wonder and found in the PSHE section of the website.

I decided to limit the Wonders of the 'Man-Made' World to the Seven Wonders of the Classical World as, had I based a script on modern-day wonders, the list would have been endless. I am happy to write a script based on modern day wonders but will wait on a teacher making such a request - with a list I can work from! Otherwise making an arbitrary choice of wonders is an impossible task!

Sample Text

Narrator:         (Cowering) Oh, Oh! Not another unhappy god! Helios, god of the sun, am I right?

Helios:             Yes, and my statue was known as the Colossus of Rhodes, built 280B.C. in the city of Rhodes, on that same Greek island, by one Charles of Lindos; and destroyed 226 B.C.

Narrator:         Ah but you were so impressive – all 108 feet of you! That’s about the same as the Statue of Liberty! Certainly the tallest statue of the ancient world!

Helios:             And that’s meant to make me feel better?

Narrator:         Well, there was nothing anyone could have done to save you. As I think I remember hearing before, that’s earthquakes for you!

                        But here, let us take a look at you, Helios, god of the sun, in your prime – or rather, that of your statue!

(Narrator holds up picture of Colossus of Rhodes)

Narrator:         Behold the Colossus of Rhodes!

(Helios bows and exits)

Narrator:         (Consulting notes) Five down, two to go!

Heckler:           (Yawning) How many did you say?

Narrator:         Don’t tell me you haven’t been counting? Or is anything over five a bit of a struggle for you?

Heckler:           Ooh! That’s not nice! And just to show you I am actually interested in the past, I’ll give this next one my undivided attention!

Narrator:         Fine!

                        (To audience) Let’s hope it’s a good one!

(Enter Pharaoh Ptolemy II)

Music 7 Carl Orff – O Fortuna – Carmina Burana

Ptolemy II:       Ah so you are here to admire the Lighthouse of Alexandria! Behold!

(Ptolemy II holds up picture of Lighthouse)

Ptolemy II:       Pretty impressive, huh?

Heckler:           Why?

Ptolemy II:       Well, in 268 B.C. it was the tallest building in the world

Heckler:           Apart from the Great Pyramid of Giza! So, not quite the tallest

Ptolemy II:       Well, no

Heckler:           And I’m guessing - another earthquake?

Ptolemy II:       Well, yes but

Heckler:           No buts. Wake me up again when there’s something truly stupendous!

Ptolemy II:       (Indignantly) But I thought it was wondrous you were covering today?

(Exit Ptolemy II)

Narrator:         (Sighing heavily and clutching head) Well, I guess that’s it. With just one more to go, let’s hope a miracle is about to happen!

Music 8 Rivers of Babylon – Boney M
