Whatever gave our narrator the idea that taking on over 7,500 body parts was a good idea? (OK, so that's a slight exaggeration - .... actually, 8 Body Systems, 5 Senses plus a few 'others'!) Even so, no mean challenge ... in 20 minutes. But then with a Bossy Brain to help out, how could he go wrong?

Sample Text

(Eight Body Systems each step forward in turn)

Brain:              Nervous System I’m in charge here!

Narrator:         (Tutting) You again! I might have known you’d be first up!

Brain:              Well, I am the Boss! (Pointing to rest of cast) None of this lot would be any good without me, the Brain!

Narrator:         (Snorting) Huh! And vice versa. I wonder what you’d do if you had nobody to boss around! Next!

Heart:              (Coquettishly mincing up to stand beside Brain) Oh I do like a man who’s in charge!

Narrator:         (Coughing) Huh hmm. You, Heart, are representing the Circulatory System today. Please remember – purely functional, absolutely no romance, thank you very much!

(Heart looks disappointed, sighing deeply)

Narrator:         Yes, you can forget all that valentine stuff. Your job in the body is way more important than all that nonsense! We’ll come back to you in a minute!

(Narrator jostled out of the way by Lungs)

Narrator:         Hey! You’re a bit pushy, aren’t you?

Lungs:              Well, yes, der! That’s my job – to be pushy! (Holds up two ‘bags’) Since when did you know a pair of lungs not to be pushy!

Narrator:         Ah! The Respiratory System! Now I understand!

Brain:              And that’s only because (pointing to head) your brain’s working properly!

Narrator:         (Irritably) Yes, yes!

                        (To audience) I’ve a feeling we’ll be hearing way too much from him!


Stomach:         (Rubbing tummy) I’m here – representing the Digestive System!

Narrator:         Ah. And of course, you would be

Stomach:         Stomach! Most important part of the body!

(Rest of cast all cough loudly in disagreement)

Narrator:         Matter of opinion, I think!

Brain:              Well, since you asked

Narrator:         (Interrupting angrily) No I didn’t! Now please remain seated until I speak to you!

(Brain sits down in a huff)


Music 2 – Dem Bones Dem Bones – sung by the cast as Skeleton does a dance to it

Skeleton:         I’m Skeleton

Narrator:         (Sarcastically) You know? I’d never have guessed!

Skeleton:         Huh! You may scoff! But it’s me that holds it all together! I’m here representing the Skeletal System.

(Narrator jostled out of the way, by Muscles)

Narrator:         (Tutting) Huh! Another pushy fellow! Nothing like muscling in on the act. (Pauses) Oh, don’t tell me?

Muscles:          Muscles! That’s correct. I’m here representing the Muscular System.

Narrator:         (Turning to Hormone) And you?

Hormone:        I’m Hormone! And I’m here representing the Endocrine System. In charge of all those glands – very important!

Narrator:         And that just leaves us with

Bladder:          Er, I think it’s more usually the case that we leave you! Via the loo!

Narrator:         Oh dear! I’m guessing we’re in for some toilet humour, with this one! You are?

Bladder:          Bladder! I’m here representing the Urinary System.

Narrator:         Lovely! And, passing on quickly … Ah, the Senses! Do introduce yourselves, please!
