~ The Happy Moment ~

Summary
Hector Hedgehog and his friend Holly are looking for happiness. When they lay down in the grass to wait for a happy moment, a frog shows them how he enjoys hopping around and catching flies. While trying another time to find happiness, the call of a cuckoo promises both of them that they will experience something nice. They have a delicious picnic, watch the butterflies dancing and enjoying their life and finally realise that they have experienced a happy day. They now understand that one cannot just wish happiness, because it is always there, you must just see it!

Excerpt:

The Happy Moment

The scenery is divided into three parts. On the central scenery you can see a meadow with flowers and trees. On the scenery to stage left a frog in a waterhole and a cuckoo on a tree and on the right part butterflies can be seen. The three narrators are sitting in the front of the scenery to stage right.

Narrator 1:    Once upon a time there was a little hedgehog. His name was Hector.

Narrator 2:    On a nice summer day he strolled across a meadow.

The little hedgehog enters the stage and walks a few times from one side to the other.

Narrator 1:    Then his little friend came running to the meadow. Her name was Holly.

The Narrators leaves the stage.

Holly Hedgehog:    Hello, Hector. How are you?

Hector Hedgehog:    Hello, Holly. How are you?

Holly Hedgehog:    Please, tell me Hector, can you just wish yourself happiness and then really get it?

Hector Hedgehog:    No, that's not possible, Holly.

Holly Hedgehog:    But perhaps at least a short happy moment, would that be possible?

Hector Hedgehog:    That I don't know, Holly, but I don't think it will work either.

Holly Hedgehog:    Shall we try it out once? Would you like that, Hector?

Hector Hedgehog:    Oh yes, Holly, but how can we do that?

Holly Hedgehog:    We just say: we are wishing us a happy moment and then we lay down here in the grass, look to the sky and are quite alert.

They do so.

Hector Hedgehog:    Do you sense already something, Holly?

Holly Hedgehog:    I feel a little bit dizzy.

At this moment a loud croak can be heard.

Hector Hedgehog:    Hallo, what's this we've got there?

Now the frog hops on the stage, dances a "frog-dance" and stops.
