MONROE and ALMA:

(( Enter with loud fanfare and rattling of numerous cans ))


Hello everyone! Wake up!

We're here to provide you with some high-quality BAM intermission entertainment!




%% And boy, have we been practicing for this early and late! We'd better get a standing ovation - yes -  it'd better be madly standing on tip-toes! %%

Folks, we challenge everyone to join in with their own intermission number once we've awed you enough with ours! It's time to bring the house down! %% And put the tent up %%

(( Pirouetting and gyrating madly yet gracefully across the stage ))


Woo-Hoo !

MONROE:


((Beams delightedly at the rounds of applause, but is also a little puzzled ))

** Graphic? There sure wasn't anything graphic about our entirely elevated performance. We're way too dignified and prim and proper. I left graphic behind with my CHER-loving days (and nights. Ahem) **

(( Worries ))

** Perhaps the tights were too tight and showing off much too much? **

(( Gets back to business ))

Thank you! Thank you! And if this wasn't enough, here's a brand new performance from my Bright Angel, the one..... The only......ALMA!

(( Makes dramatic gesture to someone yet hidden off-stage ))

Here just for tonight to prove her immense multitasking skills! Yes, good people! Watch her dance, watche her twirl, watch her juggle and sing, all at once!

Please give her the warm welcome she deserves!


(( Draws a huge breath))

Heeeeeeeeere's ALMA!!!!

(( Cue majorly sweeping music as the curtains rise ))

FAYETTE NEWSOME:



**Lands, L.D., will y'look at that!  They've gone n' hired a perfessional song n' dance team for this benefit!  Why, they're so good I'll bet they got 'em from New York City!  'Bout time we got some high-class entertainment in Childress. 

Don't y' just admire how she handles those balls? **



L.D. NEWSOME (who had been shaking more than balls, not handlng his own):



** Woman, watch what y'say in mixed company! **

From a distance, a song wafts on the breeze...

**High on a hill were two lonely shepherds
Little-Darlin-odel, Friend-odel
Pawin' the white out of the moon**

DIRECTOR WELLIWONT~

((strides happily to the front and centre of the stage, flapping papers in her hand))

((in a very loud voice))

I have good news!  VERY good news!

I have just received a teletype message from France!  LaShawn is on the Eurostar Train, speeding her way back here as we speak!  I mean as I speak, hehe.

So if everyone could just be a little more patient and stop demanding their money back, she will be here very soon!  In the meantime, please continue to enjoy our excellent impromptu entertainment.

((welliwont turns and leave the stage))
Then the clouds opened up and God said, "I hate you, Alfafa."

LUREEN:

(to LaShawn)

You can bounce anything you want off me, GirlFRiend! Just remember I wuz Tri Delt and you wazn't! That shows who's bottom and who's top! I wouldn't say that about your posterior--we wouldn't want to insult Roy Taylor and his horses! Tell you what--why don't you dance with ma husband so I can see that cute lil posterior in motion?!

LASHAWN:

(to Lureen)

(winks)  Don't mind if I do, Lureen!  Thank you so much, darlin', for being so generous with this handsome man of yours.  It's not just husbands who don't never want to dance with their wives.  Just between you and me, sometimes wives don't want to dance with their husbands neither.

((LaShawn takes Jack's hand and leads him into the fray, but her attention is caught by Jennifer Lopez and she trips, craning her neck to get a better view.))

JACK:

(to LaShawn)
**Fer some reason, thought you'd be a little more talkative.**

((LaShawn tears her gaze away from Jennifer and tries to focus on Jack.))

I am so sorry, Jack, I didn't mean to ignore you.  You're a mighty fine dancer and that's the truth.

((She smiles vacuously.))

I'd go gray waiting for Randall to dance with me and even if he did, he has two left feet.  I wouldn't be able to get my feet into my high-heeled strappy pumps for a week my feet would be so bruised.  Poor Randall ain't got a smidgen of rhythm  ((she trails off))...nothing like Jennifer Lopez...That woman has some moves...She is really sexy, don't you think, Jack?

((Her eyes roam back to Jennifer and she falls silent.))

%%Wonder if Lureen can dance like that??%%
"Laß sein. Laß sein."
