~ May I Help? ~

Summary
Hector Hedgehog and his friend Holly Hedgehog go for a walk. They come into a forest and suddenly the weather changes. First it gets dark and rainy and then even a thunderstorm comes up. They get lost in the dark and Holly Hedgehog feels frightened. When Hector even sprains his foot, they are in a state of emergency and he needs the help of his friend. They must be brave and seek help. Fortunately, the glow-worms can light their path. In the end they learn how important it is to be helpful and to make use of the help of others. 

Excerpt:

May I Help?

The scenery to stage right shows a meadow with flowers and butterflies. The scenery to stage left shows an old hollow oak. The central section shows a wood with fir trees. In the foreground one sees some tall ferns and wild flowers. Two narrators introduce the scene.

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

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

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

The narrators leave the stage.

Holly Hedgehog:    Good morning, Hector Hedgehog.

Hector Hedgehog:    Good morning, Holly Hedgehog.

Holly Hedgehog:    The sun is shining so nicely. Shall we go for a walk?

Hector Hedgehog:    That’s a good idea. Where shall we go?

Holly Hedgehog:    To the river beyond the wood.

Pointing to the wood.

Hector Hedgehog:    It’s rather far.

Holly Hedgehog:    Perhaps we’ll have an adventure.

Hector Hedgehog:    Oh yes! I expect we will!

Holly Hedgehog:    Come on then, Hector Hedgehog.

She takes him by the hand and they walk around a little. Now two butterflies appear on stage.

Holly Hedgehog:    Just look how prettily their wings shine in the sun!

The butterflies dance.

Holly Hedgehog:    You have danced very nicely, Butterflies.

Butterflies:        Thank you, Holly Hedgehog.

The butterflies leave the stage and the dragonflies appear and dance.

Hector Hedgehog:    Look, Holly Hedgehog!
