~ The Blue Flower ~

Summary
Hector Hedgehog is looking for the blue flower, the most beautiful flower in the world. Since he does not find it at home, he flies on the back of a stork to Africa and later to Finland, the land of the midnight sun, to look for it. The animals living in these countries help him on his search, but even with their help he cannot find it. He is very sad and travels back home. There, very unexpectedly, he finds the blue flower, which makes him very happy.

Excerpt:

The Blue Flower

The central scenery shows a meadow with flowers of all colours except blue, butterflies, trees and birds. On the scenery to stage right you can see a savanna scene with a river and acacia trees. Some flowers grow between the trees and along the river, among them two blue flowers.  The scenery to stage left shows snow-covered fir trees with a glacier in the background, and tiny colourful flowers, including a single blue one, in the foreground.

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

Narrator 2:        One day he went for a walk in a meadow.

Hector Hedgehog comes on stage and walks up and down as if searching for something.

Narrator 3:        Then a stork flew down and landed in the meadow.

The stork lands near Hector Hedgehog.

White Stork:        Good morning, Hector Hedgehog.

Hector Hedgehog:    Good morning, White Stork.

White Stork:        What are you doing there Hector Hedgehog?

Hector Hedgehog:    I am looking for the blue flower, the most beautiful flower in the world.

White Stork:        Does it grow here, Hector Hedgehog?

Hector Hedgehog:    I believe not. I have been searching for a long time but I can’t find it. Are you flying to Africa?

White Stork:        Yes, Hector Hedgehog, winter is coming and I am flying to Africa.

Hector Hedgehog:    Could you take me with you, White Stork?

White Stork:        Yes, Hector Hedgehog, I could. Do you want to look for the blue flower in Africa?

Hector Hedgehog:    That’s exactly what I want to do.
