Aladdin Script Version 2 (Arabian Version) Excerpt

SCENE 4.

Deep in the Desert. Frontcloth.

(ABANAZAR and ALADDIN enter.)

ABA.

Yes, yes! This is it! We’re close, I know we are.

ALADDIN.

Are you sure?

ABA.

Of course, I’m sure! Can’t you see how the planets are guiding us?

ALADDIN.

No, I can’t. Do you know where we’re actually going, Uncle?

ABA.

Silence! Do you not realise that I have magical powers!

ALADDIN.

Then why have we been trudging for miles and miles through this endless sand?

ABA.

Will you shut up!

ALADDIN.

You don’t know any more magic than my Mum!

ABA.

You want magic? I’ll show you magic! I’ll show you magic that’ll put hairs on your chest! (Looking out over Auditorium.) Look at the sun, boy! What can you see?

ALADDIN.

Part of it’s missing!

ABA.

Exactly! That is why I brought you here.

ALADDIN.

The sun is disappearing! It’s getting darker. What does it mean?

ABA.

It means untold wealth and riches!

ALADDIN.

How can that be?

ABA.

Very soon the moon will entirely obscure the sun and then
– (There is a loud and very deep rumble.)
It’s happening already!

ALADDIN.

What is, Uncle!
(Another shocking rumble.)

ABA.

A giant pyramid will grow out of the sand!

ALADDIN.

A giant pyramid…? There! Something’s moving!

ABA.

My old eyes can’t see!

ALADDIN.

There, Uncle! There!
(A massive and enduring rumble. Rocks rending etc…)
It’s growing! It really is growing! Oh, wow!

ABA.

Ten thousand wonders! The Pyramid That Isn’t There!

ALADDIN.

There’s so little light – the sun’s disappeared completely!
(They continue to watch and the sounds begin to subside.)

ABA.

Is that not magical?

ALADDIN.

A giant pyramid… in the blackness of the night.

ABA.

Full of the most unimaginable treasure. And now we have to work fast. Somewhere in the pyramid is a lamp.

ALADDIN.

A lamp?

ABA.

Yes, a lamp. When you’ve found it, bring it straight to me.

ALADDIN.

Hang on, hang on. Why don’t you go in to the pyramid?

ABA.

Because – because I’m not good at going in to pyramids!

ALADDIN.

What if it’s not safe?

ABA.

Of course, it’s safe!

ALADDIN.

Prove it. I know. Give me that ring you wear as a token of your good faith.

ABA.

No!

ALADDIN.

Why not?

ABA.

It…er. It’s precious to me.

ALADDIN.

Well, if you won’t give it me, I’m not going in. You can go in yourself.

ABA.

Oh, very well! (Gives ring.) Take it! Bring me the lamp and then you can help yourself to all the jewels you can carry.

ALADDIN.

You just want a lamp?

ABA.

Yes.

ALADDIN.

You’re sure?

ABA.

Yes. A lamp!!! (Sweetly.) I get the lamp and you get the jewels.

ALADDIN.

Alright, Uncle. I’ll go in.

ABA.

Good.

ALADDIN.

(stepping down the stairs) I’m in.

ABA.

Excellent. Now, go and find the lamp!

ALADDIN.

(walking through Auditorium) It’s all very dark and spooky.

ABA.

The lamp, Aladdin. The lamp!

ALADDIN.

Alright, alright, I’m going. I’m going… (Exits.)

ABA.

It’s nearly mine! (Chuckles unpleasantly.) I almost feel sorry for the boy - for once I have the lamp, Aladdin can return for the jewels, only to find the pyramid sink back into the sand for another one thousand years! (Laughs wickedly. AUDIENCE Reaction.) And you lot can belt up, or I’ll cancel the second half! (Laughs fiendishly. BLACKOUT.)
