Narrator 1:  Once upon a time a donkey worked long and hard for his master.  As the years went by 
             the donkey grew old and weak.

Narrator 2:  One day the donkey heard his master say that he was going to get rid of him.  When 
             the donkey heard this he said...

Donkey:      I will run away to the town of Bremen. I have a strong voice. I will become a fine
             singer.

Narrator 3:  So the donkey left the farm and headed down the road to Bremen.

Narrator 4:  By and by the donkey met an old dog.

Donkey:      Good morning, Dog! How are you this fine day?

Dog:         I am old and weak. My master wants to get rid of me. I don't know what to do.

Donkey:      Why not come with me to the town of Bremen? Together we can be fine musicians.

Narrator 1:  So the dog and the donkey headed down the road.

Narrator 2:  By and by they met a cat.

Dog:		   Hello, Cat! How are you this fine day?

Cat:		   I am old and weak. My master wants to get rid of me. I don't know what to do.

Donkey:      Why not come with us to the town of Bremen? Together we can be fine musicians.

Narrator 3:  So the cat, the dog, and the donkey headed down the road.

Narrator 4:  By and by they net a rooster.

Cat:         Hello, Rooster!  How are you this fine day?

Rooster:     I am old and weak. My master wants to get rid of me. I don't know what to do.

Donkey:      Why not come with us to the town of Bremen? Together we can be fine musicians.

Narrator 1:  So the rooster, the cat, the dog, and the donkey headed down the road.

Narrator 2:  The animals walked all day but they did not reach the town of Bremen.

Donkey:      Come, my friends. Let's rest under this big tree for the night.

Narrator 3:  The rooster flew up into the tree to get a look around. Suddenly he called out...

Rooster:     We are in luck my friends! I see a light. Perhaps there is a house for us to 
             sleep in.

Narrator 4:  The animals followed the rooster to the light. There they found a little house.  
             The donkey peeked in the window.

Narrator 1:  The donkey saw a band of robbers inside the little hose. The robbers were so busy
             counting their money that they did not see the donkey.

Donkey:      My friends we must think of a way to frighten those robbers away.

Narrator 1:  It wasn't long before the animals had hatched a good plan.

Narrator 2:  The donkey stood on his hind legs. The dog climbed on the donkey's shoulders. The 
             cat climbed onto the dog's back. The rooster perched on top of the cat.

Narrator 3:  And then the animals call out...

Donkey:      Hee haw!  Hee haw!

Dog:         Woof!  Woof!  Woof!

Cat:         Meow!  Meow!  Meow!

Rooster:     Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Narrator 4:  The noise scared the robbers. The robbers dashed out of the little house and ran away.

Narrator 1:  The robbers did not take their gold. They did not take their food. They just ran away
             as fast as they could.

Donkey:      What good luck, my friends!  Now we have a cozy house, tasty food, and all the gold
             we'll ever need.

Narrator 2:  The animals never went to the town of Bremen. They lived happily ever after in the
             tiny house in the woods.

All:         The End.
