The Director comes forward and states that this play, which is a very famous one, is to be presented entirely by members of the audience, and that all the scenery will also be represented by volunteers. He asks two boys to come forward and represent the curtain. They stand on either side of the "stage" and raise their hands to represent the curtain going up, lowering their hands to represent the drop of the curtain. He also asks the characters to represent three trees, a large rock and mountains in the background. Especially able actors are commandeered from the audience to take the part of St. George and the Dragon, St. George being stationed off-stage on one side and the Dragon in a similar position on the other side.


The Director says: "The play is now on. All ready for the first act.

"The curtain goes up." (The boys representing the curtain make a motion representing the curtain going down. They have been previously coached to do everything backward.)

The Director continues: "St. George enters." (St. George does so) "St. George smiles." (He does so) "St. George goes out." (He goes out)

"Curtain now goes down." (The "curtains" make the motion of the curtain going up.)


 The Director says: "Act Two will begin immediately. The curtain now rises."

(Curtain makes the motion of curtain going down)

"The Dragon enters." (He does so)

"The Dragon roars." (He roars)

"The Dragon goes out." (He goes out)

"This is the end of Act Two. The curtain now falls."

(Curtains make the motion of curtain going up)


 The Director says: "Now comes the exciting part. This is Act Three. Hang on to your seats, ladies and gentlemen. Ladies are requested not to faint until the Act is over. The curtain goes up." (They lower it)

"The Dragon enters." (He does so)

"St. George enters." (He does so)

"The Dragon smiles." (He does so)

"St. George roars." (He roars)

"The Dragon goes out." (He goes out)

"St. George goes out." (He goes out)

"The curtain falls." (They raise it)


 The Director says: "Now comes the difficult part. In this act you will have to use your imagination, if any. It is particularly exciting because we now come to the climax, which is very hard on the actors. The curtain goes up." (They lower it)

"Nobody enters." (Nobody does)

"Nobody smiles." (Nobody smiles)

"Nobody roars." (He is correct)

"Nobody goes out." (Nobody does)

"The curtain now goes down." (It goes up)

"And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the end of the dramatic playlet, St. George and the Dragon, which I hope you have enjoyed as much as the Dragon. The ushers will pass up and down the aisles and collect the flowers!"
