Sample Text:

 Music 1 The Who – Who are You?

(Children file in, in speaking order, seating themselves along two rows of fifteen, facing the audience)

Narrator:             Good morning and welcome to our assembly on Ancient Civilisations!

Child 1:                 So you’ve all heard of

Child 2:                 The Ancient Sumer Civilisation

Child 3:                 The Ancient China Civilisation

Child 4:                 The Indus Valley Civilisation

Child 5:                 The Ancient Egypt Civilisation

Child 6:                 The Ancient Greece Civilisation

Child 7:                 The Ancient Rome Civilisation

Child 8:                 (To Audience) Right?

Narrator:             (To Audience) Can we hear that again? You didn’t sound very sure. You have all heard of these famous ancient civilisations, right?

(Narrator waits for response from audience)

Narrator:             (Pulling a face) Excellent! I can see our work here is done!

(Narrator starts to walk away; Child 9 runs after him/her)

Child 9:                 Wait! What are you doing? They (pointing to audience) might have heard of these ancient civilisations. And they could probably tell you a few facts about each.

Child 10:              Like, er … Ancient Egypt had pyramids!

Child 11:              And, er … Julius Caesar didn’t die in his sleep!

Child 12:              And, um, … there were some pretty weird creatures in Ancient Greek Myths

Child 13:              Like flying horses

Child 14:              And nasty ladies with snakes instead of hair

Child 15:              And

Narrator:             (Interrupting) Yes, yes! Your point being?

Child 16:              Well I bet there aren’t too many in the audience who could say which civilisation came first?

Child 17:              Or which was the largest?

Child 18:              Or where in the world the Sumerians were based?

Child 19:              Or when they peaked?

Child 20:              Or … oh so many things!

Narrator:             (Scratching head) Hmm. You may be right.

Child 21:              It’s one thing to know these ancient civilisations existed but ..

Child 22:              Well, it’s all a bit vague isn’t it?

Child 23:              Especially on the when and where front, right?

Child 24:              So how about we try to paint a complete picture

Narrator:             You mean, cover all six civilisations?

Child 25:              Why not?

Narrator:             (Looking at watch) Well, there’s the small matter of how long this will all take?

Child 26:              Easy! We’ll be done

Narrator:             Before midnight?

Child 27:              (Laughing) Way before midnight!

Child 28:              I mean, all we want to give you today

Child 29:              Is ..

Whole Cast:        (Together) The bigger picture!

(Whole cast cheers)
