Scene 1-Street in front of the Banks’ House
(In front of stage, far right – Chimney sweep sitting on a chimney pot – spotlight on. Stage, in darkness, is set up like a living room, two pieces of luggage downstage stage left.)
Sweep 1– Winds in the east, mist comin’ in
Like something is brewin’ about to begin
Can’t put me finger on what lies in store
But I feel what’s to happen, all happened before
(Sweep starts cleaning chimney. Bert comes from stage right to stand in front of stage right)
(Tips hat) How d’you? Please ta meet ‘cha. (pointing at the stage) This here is Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane. The residence of George Banks esquire.
(As he’s talking, sweep goes off stage right with broom over shoulder. Passer By comes from stage left)
A word of advice, young man. You may want to get out of here. Storm signals are up at number 17. Bit of heavy weather brewing there.
(Both turn to look at stage, after a few seconds, look worried and exit stage right)
Scene 2 – In the House
(Barging onto stage from stage right followed by Ellen) Leave her alone!
You be quiet!
Don’t you be trying to stop the wretched creature! Let her go, that’s what I say, and good riddance!
(Breaking loose) But who gets stuck with the children with no nanny in the house? Me, that’s who!
(Shouting to Katie Nanna, who enters stage left and picks up her luggage) Her and her high and mighty ways! I never liked her from the moment she set foot in the door.Rate this script:4.2 / 15 votes
