(Synopsis)

 

What makes some people great can also become the hatchet at the foot of the tree for others. For Amelia, should she have turned right in her life instead of left, it wouldn’t have mattered to her at all. Amelia possesses an exceptionally strong inner strength that drives her on a journey that continues like a circle with a missing piece.

 

In Amelia’s mind, she is the happiest girl in all of Europe. She is loved dearly by her Mother and Father and she knows it.  In this life one’s journey can change suddenly and without warning. Amelia begins to fear that her life is about to change, but not in a good way.

 

It is a well-known fact that “money trouble” can lead to problems and fighting in many aspects of life. And sadly, where there is fighting, there is also loss. Let it never be said that the dark cloud of sadness doesn't have time for everyone. It takes extra special pleasure in casting its shadow on the happy ones as well.

 

Luckily for Amelia, her fortitude will win the field, save the day. Although separated from her family, she is determined to love and be loved by them again. In fact, no matter how long it may take, she has promised herself that she is going to find them and enjoy life and be happy as she makes her journey.

 

For all that have the pleasure of meeting Amelia on her search they too encounter the incredible feeling of happiness that she emits, all over again. As when the very first blade of grass came up and said good morning to a flower, on that first day, this is what being with Amelia is like.

 

Despite being apart from her Mother and Father, Amelia finds the inner strength to carry on her search for her parents and in turn, she finds out so much about herself, and the family that she never knew she had. Amelia is convinced of two things, “Who would have thought that with every pretty song somewhere there is a sour note”. And also “Who ever thought that feeling so bad could sound so good”.

     

     With all the twists and turns of life you will laugh with her, cry for her, and finally

enjoy her triumph.

 

 

Please enjoy the wonderfully exciting journey of Amelia, The Musical!

Winds are blowing, a change is coming…

 

 

( Introduction Monologue by Amelia )

 

Hello, I am in love.  But, I have been in love all of my life.

Some girls wait until they are grown to fall in love, I on the

other hand realized how much I was loved, as soon as I could cry. 

 

And yes, I was loved since the day I was born.  As I tell

you this story I am no longer 9, which is really where my story

begins, but I am a grown woman.  It turns out that my mother and my father did, love me dearly.

 

This is my story,

 

So listen…

(SONG)

 

Has my Daddy lost his feelings

I don’t know what to say

Has my Mommy lost her feelings

Why did they go away

Why did they go away

Are they going to stay?

 

My Mommy used to kiss

My Daddy goodbye

My Daddy used to tell her

I love you then he cried…

I love you then he cried…

 

Has my Mommy – Has my Daddy

Won’t somebody tell me please?

Won’t somebody tell me please?

 

 

 

 

Act I

Monologue

 

Prague 1967 in the Czech Republic.  There lives a little girl, me. This 9 year old is happy and lively,

mostly because she is in love, and is loved by her outspoken Mother and her cheerful Father.  

Her eyes are a dead giveaway as to what her mood is. 

And up until lately her eyes would tell you that she could easily part the Red Sea, feed the poor,

end a drought, yes even possibly cure cancer.

 

Lately her eyes have been telling on her. If she had a brother he would say, “Why don’t you laugh much anymore?”

If this girl had a sister, her sister would surely say, “Are you angry with me for something?”. Her family shared a small one bedroom apartment where she could see the Petřín Lookout Tower from the kitchen, and tourists filled the streets in the summer.

 

She was a handsome girl and she had become accustomed to people always telling her how pretty she was, with her thick

blond hair down to her waist. She no longer noticed it, however everyone always commented on it.

 

To her, love was the order of the day. While other little girls in her school would talk about dates,

boyfriends and hand holding, she would dream of short summers she’d had with her

family.  Picnics and laughter, that was the way.

 

She was the only person on earth (as it seemed to her) and every day she smiled.

 

The happiest girl in all of Europe.  At least that’s how she used to feel before her Mommy always became

so angry at her Daddy and her Daddy started to not smile always like he used to

all of the time. This is when things began to change. And it would stay changed.  

This is when Amelia grew up and found out how much Love meant to her.  

 

My name is Amelia.  And if I could change my name I would call myself   “Farbe mich traurig”, (color me sad).

I…am Amelia.  And… I am the saddest girl on earth.

 

It 5:00 in the evening on a sunny, warm, summer day and Amelia is doing what she does every day, that is keeping watch for her Daddy

out of an open window. Her Mommy is busy doing what Mommies do, she was at the stove stirring something in a pot.

 

Today Mommy did not look happy. Sometimes she has that look about her, and today was one of those days. I sometimes wonder

if Mommy loves my Daddy like I do, or if Daddy loves Mommy the way I do.  For sure I feel like my life is about to change, and not in a good way.

 

Today I looked up and saw a beautiful sky, big and blue.   Not the sad blue, but the happy one, the one where birds sing and butterflies play under.  Now for me, I feel like I want to cry.

 

On the table I have coloring pencils, with not nearly enough different colors in the box. I had never felt like this before.  

Run out of colors?  How can that be?  Look, my heart is crackling like an egg, and my heart is spilling out on the floor. 

Daddy, love me. Mommy, love Daddy. Do this for me, your baby.  I must stay cheerful for my Daddy.  He likes me that way.  

It’s still early, maybe I can squeeze in just one more good cry …

 (SONG)

 

Verse 1

 

 

Color me in the color of the sky

Color me blue   just go and try

 

And if I were to get one wish

I would wish for happiness

 

Can it be I’m the only one that sees

It hurts so very bad to be me

 

It’s plain as paper as clear as the sea

I want Mommy and Daddy with me

 

 

 

Bridge

 

There was a little girl that had

Everything a girl should have

She should feel loved

That’s not bad makes her glad

 

I once saw a shooting star, fall

It burned so bright till it was gone

 

 

Chorus

 

I’m hurting so bad…

If my life were a color…

Color me…

SAD

 

Bridge

 

 Let a little girl try and tell you

Some things about love – I’ll shock you

Share a life key with you

Maybe change your future too

For me, my life has been cast

The mold is poured, shut down, out of gas…

 

 

Chorus

 

I’m hurting so bad…

If my end were a color…

Color me…

SAD

 

 

 

Verse 3

 

I’m too young, to be feeling so lonely

How about the feeling that I will die?

 

It’s all bunched up inside my soul

I have a ticket, I must go

 

I would like, to live without sin

In a world that’s, new again

 

It’s the truest love

There’s ever been, I wanna have a life, with, my family again

 

Let a little girl try and tell you,

Some things about love, might shock you

Share a life key with you

Maybe change your future too

 

For me my life has been cast

The mold is poured, shut down, out of gas…

 

 Chorus

 

I’m hurting so bad…

If my end were a color…

Color me…  SAD

 

(end of song)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amelia

      “Mommy what are we having for dinner?”

 

Mommy

     “We’re having leftovers”

 

Amelia

  “Can’t we have something else like Plum Strudel?”

 

Mommy

    “Amelia, you should be glad that we are having this. Money doesn’t exactly grow on trees you know. Your Daddy…”

 

Amelia

     “My Daddy works hard Mommy, and he is tired when he gets home! “

 

Mommy

   “I know that Amelia, but hard work doesn’t mean that we can have whatever we want, all the time. I’m tired of leftovers too, but we have to try to stretch the money we have.

So please don’t complain so much.

 

(Amelia turns and looks out the window again, looking for her Daddy.  Right on time her Daddy turns the corner…..)

 

 

Daddy

    “HELLO? HELLO!  Is my cry-cry baby there?”  “ Amelia?”

 

(Stefan looks up at the window and sees Amelia eagerly smiling down at him. The music for Cry Cry Baby begins… and he begins to sing to her their special song…)

 (SONG)

 

(Daddy sings to Amelia)

 

Here is the story of a little girl,

she was the apple of her Daddy’s world

As a matter of fact, I’d like to take that back

She is a joy to every boy and girl

She liked to get her way, just about every day

And when she would cry I’d say

 

I don’t want you to…     Cry- cry baby, Cry- cry baby,

Cry- cry baby no more

I don’t want you to…     Cry- cry baby, Cry- cry baby,

Cry- cry baby no more

 

Amelia

     (Amelia sings to her Daddy)

 “ MY TURN !“ 

 

Here is the story of my little Daddy, and I am his little girl

As a matter of fact I’d like to take that back

He’s the best Daddy in the world

I’d sit and wait all day, just to hear him sing

Together we would brighten our day…

 

(By saying)   Cry- cry baby, Cry- cry baby,

Cry- cry baby no more

(Don’t want you to)  Cry- cry baby, Cry- cry baby,

Cry- cry baby no more!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amelia

 

(She shouts to the street below)

 

“Daddy! Daddy!   Hi Daddy!”

 

Daddy

 

  “Hi baby!“ 

(He returns her shout while waving his hand. Stefan takes off running up to see Amelia)

 

 

(Music for “Daddy My Clown” begins)

 

(Amelia runs to open the door to cut the delay time between when she can see her Daddy.

Her Daddy comes through the door and gives Amelia a big hug and a big kiss!)

Stefan

“Hello Ruzena”

 

Ruzena

“Hello Stefan” (said coldly)

 

Stefan

“Smells good, what are we having for dinner?

 

Ruzena

“Smells good?   It smells like yesterday to me?”

 

 

Stefan

“Oh boy, why do we have to start like this already?  I just got home. 

 Why can’t I come home and relax for a change? Do we always have to start with the smart remarks as

soon as I walk through the door?

 

Ruzena

“Yes, your day is over, I have to spend my time trying to piece meals together from meals that we’ve eaten already.”

 

Amelia

“Mommy I don’t mind…it’s okay if…”

 

Ruzena

“Amelia, I’m not talking to you!   And I do mind, I’m getting sick and tired of living like this,

we never have enough money, never, ever!

 

Daddy

“What do you want from me? I’m doing the best I can” (shouting)

 

Ruzena

“Are you?  You are doing the best you can? If this is the best you can do, then you are perfect at failing. 

We are two months behind on rent and eating leftovers.  We don’t ever go anywhere.

 

Daddy

“Go anywhere? With what? With what money? You mean spend more money that we don’t have?  

I am sorry. I work as much as my boss will let me, I take every side job that I can, I am sorry…”

 

Ruzena

“Yes, you are sorry. Stefan, we don’t even have a car?  You have me taking the bus to get anything done

and I’m sick and tired of this nowhere life.  And what about Amelia?

When was the last time that we got her something new?  When are we coming up?
