Narrator 2: Her most outstanding feature was her big feet. When she stood up, she looked like a seaplane. Narrator 3: Cinderella lived with her beautiful stepmother and three beautiful stepsisters, Weeny, Whiny, and Moe. She had a beautiful stepcat, a stepdog, and a stepladder. Narrator 4: The size of Cinderella's feet caused her many problems. She bounced off the ceiling in ballet class, she always lost at hopscotch, and she had to buy a sock for every toe. Narrator 5: However, the worst problem for everyone else was that when Cinderella's bunions bothered her, she'd take off her shoes and leave them around town. Narrator 6: The giant, smelly shoes would block doorways, stop traffic, and take up four parking spaces at the mall. Narrator 1: So, when the King and Queen of the Land of Make Believe gave a dance party, they naturally didn't invite Cinderella. King: "What about Cinderella?" Narrator 2: asked the King. Queen: "No, it just wouldn't be safe," Narrator 3: replied the Queen. Narrator 4: As soon as they were gone, Cinderella put her feet up and turned on her favorite TV show, Lifestyles of the Royal and Famous. Narrator 5: Suddenly a cow wearing a blond wig and a pink tutu appeared on top of the TV. Cinderella: "Would you please move your tail? You're blocking the screen," Narrator 6: said Cinderella. Elsie: "I'm Elsie, your Dairy Godmother, and I'm here to send you to the ball." Cinderella: "I wasn't invited," Narrator 1: said Cinderella. Narrator 2: The cow waved her golden wand. Just then, an invitation dropped through the mail slot. Cinderella: "I don't have a thing to wear," Narrator 3: whined Cinderella. Narrator 4: Elsie waved her golden wand again. Cinderella was suddenly wearing a glamorous, glittering gown. Cinderella: "I can't find my other sneaker," Narrator 5: sniveled Cinderella. Narrator 6: The cow twirled her wand. On Cinderella's feet sparked two glass sneakers. Cinderella: "I don't have a carriage," Narrator 1: moaned Cinderella. Elsie: "Take the bus," Narrator 2: said her Dairy Godmother, handing Cinderella some change. Cinderella: "Thank you, Dairy Godmother," Narrator 3: said Cinderella. She turned to leave. Elsie: "One more thing," Narrator 4: said the cow. Elsie: "You have to be back before the clock strikes twelve," Cinderella: "Sure, sure. Bye," Narrator 5: said Cinderella. Narrator 6: When Cinderella arrived at the ball, everyone pointed and said, Narrators 1 and 2: "Who's that funny-looking girl?" Narrator 3: Prince Smeldred, who was quite funny-looking himself, raised his head from the punch bowl and sputtered, Prince: "Who's the doll! Wanna dance?" Cinderella: "Let's trip the light fantastic, big boy," Narrator 4: said Cinderella, twirling. Prince: "Ouch! You stepped on my foot!" Narrator 5: said Smeldred. Narrator 6: The two began to dance. Prince: "Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Maybe we'd better sit this one out," Narrator 1: howled Smeldred, hopping up and down. Narrator 2: Just then the clock struck twelve. (Time goes fast when you're having a ball.) Cinderella: "I have to go," Narrator 3: shrieked Cinderella. Prince: "But who are you?" Narrator 4: cried Smeldred, rubbing his feet. Cinderella: "I'm late!" Narrator 5: she replied. Prince: "That's a funny name," Narrator 6: said Smeldred, who wasn't too swift. Prince: "What's your address? What's your phone number? What's your sign?" Narrator 1: But Cinderella was gone. Narrator 2: She'd left behind one glass sneaker- size 87, triple A- that blocked the doorway, so everyone had to leave through the back door. Prince Smeldred: "I'm going to find that girl," Narrator 3: vowed Smeldred. Narrator 4: Using a "toe" truck, he hauled the sneaker to every maiden in the kingdom. Narrator 5: Each girl would put in one foot, then two feet, then both hands. Narrator 6: Finally, Smeldred arrived at Cinderella's house. Weeny sat in the sneaker. Weeny: "It fits!" Narrator 1: she shrieked. Prince: "Next," Narrator 2: said Smeldred. Narrator 3: Then Whiny and Moe stood in the sneaker together. Whiny and Moe: "It fits!" Narrator 4: they shouted. Prince: "Next!" Narrator 5: sighed Smeldred, feeling a little discouraged. Narrator 6: Just then, Cinderella lumbered into the room. Cinderella: "Oh, there's my other sneaker!" Narrator 1: she cried, and slipped it on. Everyone stared at Cinderella's foot. Wheeny, Whiny and Moe: "It fits!" Narrator 2: they gasped. Prince Smeldred: "Will you marry me?" Narrator 3: said Smeldred, throwing himself at her feet. Cinderella: "Only if you'll marry me," Narrator 4: replied Cinderella. Narrator 5: The Prince grabbed a doughnut and put it on her finger. Then they rushed out the door to live happily ever after. Wheeny, Whiny and Moe: "Well, at least the Prince will be our stepbrother-in-law," Narrator 6: cried Weeny, Whiny, and Moe. Mom: "Yeah, but it's going to be hard to fill Cinderella's shoes," Narrator 6: sighed their mom. Narrator 1: Just then, Elsie appeared on top of the refrigerator. Elsie: "The shoe must go on," Narrator 2: she uttered with a wink, and poured them each a glass of milk.
