Excerpt

ne and Round Pond.

Enter BLANCHIDINE and BRUNETTE, with their arms thrown affectionately around one another. BLANCHIDINE is carrying a large and expressionless wooden doll.

Duet and Step-dance.

Bl. Oh, I do adore BRUNETTE! (Dances.) Tippity-tappity, tappity-tippity, tippity-tappity, tip-tap!

Br. BLANCHIDINE'S the sweetest pet! (Dances.) Tippity-tappity, &c.

Together. When the sun is high, We come out to ply, Nobody is nigh, All is mirth and j'y!

With a pairosol, We'll protect our doll, Make a mossy bed For her wooden head!

[Combination step-dance, during which both watch their feet with an air of detached and slightly amused interest, as if they belonged to some other persons.

Clickity-clack, clickity-clack, clickity, clickity, clickity-clack; clackity-clickity, clickity-clackity, clackity-clickity-clack!

[Repeat ad. lib.

As our Author of the Day, Hennessy reveals why she decided to retell the famous fairytale, talks about her work as an English teacher and why she had to reshape the Duke's character three times.
