Fun with English (Choral Speaking Script)



FUN WITH ENGLISH 
SK Kopok's Choral Speaking Script -- English Carnival 2012

ALL:
Good morning everybody,
Here we are,
A million, billion, willion miles from home,
Among strangers,
Who would like to know,

SOLO 1 (Girl):
Who are we?

SOLO 2 (Boy):
Where do we come from?

SOLO 3 (Girl:)
What are we going to do?

ALL:
Just like always,
We are going to tell you,
We are just children ,
Trying to have fun with English,
Making our voices heard,
Ringing voices, all in chorus,
Speaking English words,
Experimenting with English!
Playing with what we say,
Since English isn't easy,
We are having fun along the way,


GIRLS:
We can speak out loudly,

BOYS:
SPEAK THOSE WORDS OUT LOUD! (Spoken loudly)

GIRLS:
Stop!
Speaking out that loudly,
Just shouldn't be allowed.

GIRLS:
And we can speak out softly,
Or whisper in your ears,
(Girls turn and whisper in their friends' ear)

THIRD ROW:
No!
When you speak that softly,
No one else can hear,

BOYS:
We can speak quite rapidly,

GIRLS:
Just like a speeding train. (Spoken rapidly)
(Chuss! Chuss!)

BOYS:
Or say the words quite slowly,

ALL:
Just-like-a-clogged-up-drain

SOLO 4 (Boy):
Still wondering who are we?

ALL:
Just like always,
We are going to tell you,
We are just like you ,
Trying to have fun with English,
Making our voices heard,
Ringing voices, all in chorus,
Speaking English words,
Experimenting with English!
Playing with what we say,
Since English isn't easy,
We are having fun along the way,

HALF OF THE GIRLS:
And when the mood is right,

OTHER HALF OF GIRLS:
We'll speak up high!

BOYS:
Or-oh-so-low..

GIRLS:
Or water every word and..

ALL:
watch them grow!




BOYS:
Or say the words,
In such a way,
You want to sway,

GIRLS:
Tomorrow, tomorrow, and tomorrow, (swaying)
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, (swaying)

BOYS:
(Pointing at the girls)
Look at them,
Quoting Shakespeare,
Like they know better,

GIRLS:
Oh well!
Maybe we do,
The rain in Spain, (swaying)
Stays mainly in the plain, (swaying)

BOYS:
My Fair Lady!

GIRLS:
We can also,
Twist our tongues.

SOLO 5 (Boy):
Twist what?

GIRLS:
Sit back, relax,
And let us ask you a question,

SOLO 6 (Girl):
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

BOYS:
Hmmm... (thinking gesture)

SOLO 7 (Boy):
A woodchuck could chuck wood,
As fast as a woodchuck could chuck wood!
And, if a woodchuck could chuck wood...

GIRLS:
Stop! Stop! Stop!

SOLO 8 (Girl):
What are you doing?

BOYS:
Attempting to recite a tricky rhyme,
As fast as possible,
Without tripping over,
Difficult words!

GIRLS:
English words are fun to learn,

HALF OF THE GIRLS:
Some are short...

OTHER HALF OF THE GIRLS:
..and some are long.

GIRLS:
Ladies and gentlemen,
Lend us your ears,
For we know a very long word,

It is super...

SOLO 9 (Boy):
I know! I know!
It is superman!

GIRLS:
NO!

SOLO 10 (Boy):
Supernatural?

GIRLS:
NO!

SOLO 11 (Boy):
Super Junior?

GIRLS:
NO! NO! NO!

BOYS:
Then tell us what it is.

GIRLS:
It is...supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious,
If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious,
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

BOYS:
Wow!
That surely is the..

PAIR 1 (Boys):
..longest!

PAIR 2 (Boys):
..biggest!

PAIR 3 (Boys):
..strongest!

PAIR 4 (Boys):
..cleverest!

BOYS:
... word we have ever heard!

GIRLS:
Then you definitely,
have never heard,
Mary Poppins sings!

ALL:
YOU, YOU and YOU!
Take a good look at us,
Having fun with English,
Making our voices heard,
Ringing voices, all in chorus,
Speaking English words,
Experimenting with English!
Playing with what we say,
Since English isn't easy,
We are having fun along the way,

SOLO 12 (Boy):
Look at the audience!

BOYS:
All curious and restless,

GIRLS:
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock (clock gesture)

BOYS:
All waiting and thinking,

GIRLS:
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock (clock gesture)

ALL:
Who are we?
Yes, we are your children!

GIRLS:
We are...

BOYS:
...seeds of today!

GIRLS:
We are...

BOYS:
...flowers of the future!

GIRLS:
We are...

ALL:
...voices of tomorrow!

BOYS:
And yes!
We are...

ALL:
...SK Kopok!
AUM! AUM! AUM!

Not at all. Good luck in the competition!

Hi I,m Azni from Perak may I copy your script for my school . Its very creative and interesting. We,ll have a competition end of this month. Thanks a lot

Sure. We have a competition too, but we'll be using a different script. Good luck!

Hi, there...such interesting text....may i copy your script since i don't have any ideas on choral speaking....my team will be competing for papar district, sabah in May....thanks a bunch and may Allah bless u and your team....

hi pn ainul, may i hav also yr copy of the script plz.. i may change a bit.

since i ve read yr profile, may i have some tips & requirements to pursue studies in Mastero of education in TESL..

many thanks.

Yes, sure. Doing a part-time masters, I must say, is very challenging, especially if you are also holding many posts at school. It will be exhausting, but at the end of the day, it's something you will look back and feel proud of yourself for managing through. You have to always force yourself to do a lot of journal readings. Normally during classes, you will be given a list of journal articles to read before the next class. Oftentimes, there will seem to be not enough time to read and understand them all. Get yourself familiar with journal articles (if you are not already are). You will need to do a lot of literature reviews and critical reviews. Attend seminar presentations to familiarize yourself with research. And perhaps there will come a time when you feel like you just wanna quit--don't. It is doable. But it is much easier if you do it full-time. Good luck!

fuuhh...sounds tough eh.. !!

hi ainul..may i share your script..i will change it a little bit to suit with my school..thanks.. i from perak...

Hi Ainul...
The script is so interesting. Yeah...I know you've done a lot of homework...keep up your good work and effort. May I share your script? Maybe I'll do a bit of adoption and adaption.
Tq in advance
