Narrator 1:    THE WIZARD, THE FAIRY AND THE MAGIC CHICKEN

Narrator 2:    There once lived a Wizard, a Fairy, and a Magic Chicken. Each thought, "I am 
               the greatest in the world."  And each was very jealous of the other two.
 
Wizard:       "MY wand has a MOON on it,"
 
Narrator 3:    said the Wizard.
 
Fairy:        "MY wand has a STAR on it,"
 
Narrator 1:    said the Fairy.
 
Chicken:      "MY wand has a PICKLE on it,"
 
Narrator 2:    said the Magic Chicken.
 
Wizard:       "I can kiss a pig and turn it into a bicycle,"
 
Narrator 3:    said the Wizard. The Fairy said,
 
Fairy:        "That's nothing, I can kiss a bicycle and turn it into a bowl of soup."
 
Narrator 1:    The Magic Chicken said,
   
Chicken:      "I can do better than that, I can kiss a bowl of soup and turn it into a 
               singing frog."
 
Narrator 2:    Each one always tried to outdo the others.
 
Wizard:       "I can make a hairy monster with sharp teeth!"
 
Narrator 3:    bellowed the Wizard. The Fairy screeched,
 
Fairy:        "I can make a bumpy monster with nine legs!"
 
Chicken:      "I can make a dotted monster with buggy eyes!"
 
Narrator 1:    yelled the Magic Chicken.
 
Narrator 2:    The monsters glared at the magicians and loudly said, "GRRRRRROLPH!"
 
Narrator 3:    For the very first time the magicians agreed.  They shouted,
 
Wizard, Fairy, and Chicken: "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!"
 
Wizard:       "I will make a cloud to hide behind,"
 
Narrator 1:    gasped the Wizard, but that didn't stop the monsters.
 
Fairy:        "I will make thunder to scare them,"
 
Narrator 2:    puffed the Fairy, but the monsters were not frightened.
 
Chicken:      "I will make lightning.  That will make them go away,"
 
Narrator 3:    cried the Magic Chicken, but they would not go away. Nothing worked.
 
Wizard:       "We'd better..."
 
Narrator 1:    said the Wizard.
 
Fairy:        "...try something...."
 
Narrator 2:    said the Fairy.
 
Chicken:      "...together!"
 
Narrator 3:    said the Magic Chicken.  So they chanted,
 
Wizard, Fairy, and Chicken: "One, two, three, GO!"
 
Narrator 1:    The cloud and the thunder and the lightning came together.  
 
Narrator 2:    Suddenly it rained.  
 
Narrator 3:    It rained so hard and the monsters got so wet that they shrank until they 
               were only very little monsters and not scary at all.
 
Wizard, Fairy, and Chicken: "We did it!"
 
Narrator 1:    cheered the Wizard, the Fairy, and the Magic Chicken.
 
Wizard:       "I must say, though, my cloud made the rain,"
 
Narrator 2:    said the Wizard. The Fairy said,
 
Fairy:        "Well, it was because of my thunder."
 
Chicken:      "But not without my lightning,"
 
Narrator 3:    said the Magic Chicken.
 
Narrator 1:    There once lived a Wizard, a Fairy, and a Magic Chicken.
 
Narrator 2:    They argued a lot, but deep down they were very good friends.
