James' amazing Music Aprec. project

Post  James Potter - Inactive on March 19th 2010, 10:57 pm

So in music appreciation, we're writing an opera. It has to have 3 scenes, and 3 songs that don't have to be original. You can get the songs from anywhere. My opera is going to be AMAZING. Here's the synopsis, and when the whole thing's done, hopefully I can post all of it, including character sheets, dialogue, and songs.

SCENE 1: Me and my friend Zoe are really hungry. SO hungry. We decide we want m&ms. So we go on a quest for m&ms. But first, since it's an opera, we're singing all the time and we don't know why. This is a problem, because it's getting kind of creepy, and we're worried. We enlist the help of Batman, Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and various woodland creatures to come up with theories. Then the song "I've got a theory" from the Buffy musical "Once More With Feeling" plays.

SCENE 2: Now we leave the others behind and start our quest for m&ms. On the way, we meet some pirates and discover that they have all of the m&ms. We have to fight them. So we start to fight them, but then we find out that they're actually really lazy and don't even fight back, just hang out on couches and stuff. Song: "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" from Veggitales.

SCENE 3: Having defeated the pirates, me and Zoe now go to get the m&ms and we're really excited. Only before we get to them, Lord Joeldemort pops up! (No, Joel/Demyx, this isn't you, sorry. But on this site it can be. I happen to know someone at my school who's name is Joel, and I really think he has no soul, so he's a perfect fit) Zoe and I don't know how to defeat Lord Joeldemort, so we summon Rumbleroar, the talking headmaster lion of Pigfarts, the greatest wizarding school in the galaxy situated on Mars. Rumbleroar mauls Joeldemort, and then me and Zoe get all of the m&ms. Song: "Voldemort is Goin Down" from A Very Potter Musical.

AWESOME, NO?

This... uh... wont' be acted out and performed. I just have to write it... BUT EVERYONE ELSE IS WELCOME TO TRY. I should end up with a script at the end, so that's all good...

The Joel at my school that I modeled Joeldemort off is honored that he's in my opera, and thinks being mauled by a talking lion from mars is an honorable way to die.

He's not an HP nerd, but he's awesome. He has about a zillion different conspiracy theories, and believes very firmly in fighting the power. This being said, he's a huge history and current events nerd. Some of his conspiracy theories:
Atoms don't exist. They are used by "The Man" to keep us down.
The Olympics are so fake. You can see the strings holding them up.

Scene 1

(ZOE and CATHERINE are sitting on a couch in CATHERINE’S basement, hanging out.)

CATHERINE- I’m getting kind of hungry.
ZOE- Yeah, me too.
CATHERINE- Too bad I don’t have any m&ms at home. I love those.
ZOE- We could go get some. It’s not like we have anything better to do.
CATHERINE- Yeah, let’s go.
(They go outside.)
ZOE- At least it’s nice out. I hate winter.
CATHERINE- Yeah, I hate the cold.
ZOE- Whoa. I just realized something.
CATHERINE- Hmm?
ZOE- You’re singing.
CATHERINE- (acting offended) I sing all the time, thanks for noticing. Wait… you’re singing too. That’s weird.
ZOE- Yeah… I can’t seem to stop.
CATHERINE- This is weird. Maybe Batman can help. (She calls BATMAN and he shows up in the Batmobile) Hi Batman.
ZOE- Do you know why we’re singing?
BATMAN- I’m singing, too! Something evil is afoot.
CATHERINE- Or at least something very weird.
(In walks HARRY POTTER on his morning walk)
HARRY POTTER- Maybe it’s magic!
ZOE- Maybe… Oh look! There’s Buffy! Maybe she can help us.
(BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER back flips in and throws stakes and knives and stuff around.)
BUFFY- I bet it’s vampires or demons.
CATHERINE- Well, maybe we can figure this out.

(Various woodland creatures join the group as ZOE, CATHERINE, BATMAN, HARRY POTTER, and BUFFY sing “I’ve Got a Theory”)

ZOE- That didn’t help much.
CATHERINE- (As some bunnies hop back to the forest) Watch out for the bunnies! They have teeth!
HARRY POTTER- And adorable fluffy tails.
BATMAN- I have to go back to the BatCave. Know that I will not rest until this mystery is solved.
ZOE- Thanks Batman!
BUFFY- I should go back to the Scoobies and see if they have any ideas. Giles will be excited. He gets to use his books!
HARRY- Yeah, Ron and Hermione will be missing me. We’ll check all of our magic books and stuff for spells that make you sing. There’s got to be something.
CATHERINE- Wow, thanks guys!
(HARRY, BATMAN, and BUFFY leave.)
ZOE- Well, we’d better get going if we want to get m&ms today.
CATHERINE- Yeah, let’s go.
(They set off on their epic quest)

Scene 2

(CATHERINE and ZOE are walking over a bridge when they see a pirate ship)
ZOE- Oh no! Pirates! We should turn back in case they see us.
CATHERINE- Wait, what if they know something about the m&ms? We haven’t seen any this whole time.
(They walk closer to the edge of the bridge so they can talk to the pirates.)
PIRATE 1- Hey! You there!
ZOE- Yeah?
PIRATE 1- I suppose you’re wanting to cross this bridge.
CATHERINE- That was the plan. We’re looking for m&ms.
PIRATE 2- Hah! M&ms? Good luck finding any of those!
PIRATE 3- Shut up!
ZOE- I wasn’t talking!
PIRATE 3- Not you, him! (points at PIRATE 2)
PIRATE 2- What did I do?
PIRATE 4- You were talking about the m&ms, weren’t you? He told us not to talk about those!
PIRATE 1- All of you, shut up!
CATHERINE- You guys know something about the m&ms?
PIRATE 2- No! And even if we did, we wouldn’t tell you!
ZOE- Who’s “He”? Why can’t you talk about it?
PIRATE 4- Look, even if we did have the m&ms – which we don’t – we wouldn’t let you have any, now would we?
CATHERINE- You guys have the m&ms?
ALL PIRATES- NO!
ZOE- I think the pirates are hiding them.
CATHERINE- I think so too. Let’s go down there.
(They get off the bridge and step onto the pirate ship)
PIRATE 3- What are you doing here?
CATHERINE- We want the m&ms, please. I think you have them.
PIRATE 1- Well we don’t, so you can just leave.
ZOE- Well then why aren’t you supposed to talk about them? And who told you not to?
PIRATE 2- None of your business.
PIRATE 4- Yeah, if we did have them, we would have gotten rid of them by now instead of carrying them around below deck.
CATHERINE- So you do have them!
PIRATE 2- you idiot! Why’d you tell them?
CATHERINE- Come on. Let’s go check below deck.
PIRATE 1- We can’t let you do that.
ZOE- Why not?
PIRATE 3- You can’t just go wherever you want on a pirate ship! We’re going to stop you.
CATHERINE- Well then stop us. You haven’t done anything so far.
PIRATE 4- You better not go down there. We’ll have to do something we’d regret.
ZOE- Well, we’re going to find the m&ms, so you better stop us now.
CATHERINE- What kind of pirates are you guys, anyway?
MYSTERIOUS ANNOUNCER- And now it’s time for “Silly Songs with Larry,” the part of the show were Larry come out and sings a silly song.
ZOE- Whoa! You guys have your own mysterious announcer?
CATHERINE- Shh… I think they’re going to tell us who they are.

(The pirates sing “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.” ZOE and CATHERINE sneak off while they are arguing.)

Scene 3

(ZOE and CATHERINE are walking around looking for m&ms)

ZOE- I bet they don’t even notice we’re gone.
CATHERINE- And now we get to look for the m&ms! I’m almost positive they’re hiding them somewhere…
ZOE- How about this treasure chest labeled “m&m Stash”?
CATHERINE- Ooh, let’s see!
(Suddenly LORD JOELDEMORT runs on stage.)
ZOE- Who’s that?!
JOELDEMORT- I am Lord Joeldemort, and I am going to kill you!
CATHERINE- Oh no!
ZOE- He must be the one who stole all the m&ms! It’s him!
JOELDEMORT- Yes! It was I who stole your precious m&ms, and I who made you sing!
CATHERINE- It was you? But how?
JOELDEMORT- Magic! I did it all with magic!
ZOE- (whispering to CATHERINE) How do we stop him?
JOELDEMORT- You can’t! You can never stop me! I’ll take over the world!
CATHERINE- With m&ms and singing? That seems kind of – Never mind. Zoe, we have to stop him!
ZOE- But how?
(HARRY POTTER runs on stage)
HARRY- I’ll help you! I figured out what’s going on! It’s him! (points at JOELDEMORT)
CATHERINE- Yeah, we know! You have to stop him! Use magic or something!
HARRY- Oh I will. It’s my destiny! Lord Joeldemort! Let’s duel.
(JOELDEMORT and HARRY POTTER duel epically. At the end, HARRY is disarmed and JOELDEMORT has him at wand-point)
ZOE- Don’t kill him!
HARRY- It’s okay guys. I am the last Horcrux. I have to die…
CATHERINE- But you just said you’d kill him! You said it was your destiny!
JOELDEMORT- Fools, all of you! Avada Kedavra!
(HARRY POTTER falls over and dies)
JOELDEMORT- I have defeated Harry Potter! I will live forever!
CATHERINE- Not so fast, Joeldemort! We’ll defeat you! I just know there’s a way…
JOELDEMORT- Well, if you need me, I’ll be on deck having a delicious root beer in a frosty mug with my dimwitted pirate compatriots up there. (He leaves)
ZOE- What are we going to do?
(BUFFY and BATMAN run on stage)
BUFFY- We’ll help you!
BATMAN- I know the solution…

(ZOE, CATHERINE, BATMAN, and BUFFY sing “Voldemort is going down”)

CATHERINE- Guys, I know what to do! We’ll call Rumbleroar!
(At the sound of his name, Rumbleroar runs in from the sky and lands next to CATHERINE)
RUMBLEROAR- RUMBLEROOOOOOAAAAARRRRR!!!!!
ZOE- The talking headmaster lion from Pigfarts? I thought it didn’t exist!
CATHERINE- Pigfarts is the greatest wizardry school in the galaxy! It’s on Mars.
BUFFY- Well, what can he do?
BATMAN- He can maul Joeldemort at least…
RUMBLEROAR- Follow me!
(They go back on deck, where RUMBLEROAR mauls JOELDEMORT to death)
ZOE- Yes! We won!
CATHERINE- We can go get the m&ms now!
ZOE- Let’s go!
(They get the m&ms, then come back on deck)
CATHERINE- Thank you, Buffy and Batman, for all you’ve done to help us.
ZOE- Now let’s go back home!
THE END

IT'S SO AMAZING.

We don't get to perform them, just write them. But every time I have to show my teacher my characters sheets or synopsis or something, he's like "Oh, it's this one." I'm such a weirdo...
