I told Allison I would post this...

Ok, so Allison and I were chatting the other day, and I told her I had "Jabberwocky" running through my head.  And then I told her that I wrote this Readers Theatre script of it and that I would post it on my LJ.  So here it is Allison!  I did this as an Independent Study my last semester of college.  Well, last few weeks.  But this is a translation of the poem "Jabberwocky" into a Readers Theatre script, done by me in May of 2009.  This is not my poem, it's Lewis Carrol's.  None of the characters belong to me.  So anyways, here's my script.


By Lewis Carroll

Adapted by Kaitlyn Davis











Narrartor: ‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves and the mome raths outgrabe.

Mother: Beware the Jabberwock, my son!  The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!  Beware the Jubjub bird, and shung the frumious Bandersnatch!

Woods: Bandersnatch!  Bandersnatch!

Narrator: He took his vorpal sword in hand: long time the manxome foe he sought—

Boy: So he rested by the Tumtum tree, and stood awhile in thought. 

Woods: Thought, thought

Narrator: And as in uffish thought he stood.

Woods: Stood, stood

Jabberwocky: With eyes of flame, came whiffling through the tylgey wood

Woods: Tylgey wood, tylgey wood

Jabberwocky: And burbled as it came!

Sword: One, two!  One, two!  And through and through the vorpal blade went sincker-snack!

Woods: Sincker-snack!  Snicker-snack!

Boy: He left it dead, and with its head he went galumphing back.

Woods: Back!  Back!

Mother: And, had thou slain the Jabberwock?  Come to my arms, my beamish boy!  O frabjous day!  Callooh!  Callay!

Woods:  Callooh! Callay!  Callooh!  Callay!

Boy: (chortles) ‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe; all mimsy were the borogoves, and the mome raths outgrabe.


The end.
