LIGHTS UP ON:

SCENE:

Alice enters and sees Calvin just sitting with his hands on his face and elbows on his knees… looking bored.
ALICE
Hey Calvin… what are you doing?
CALVIN
Nothing.
ALICE
Can I do it with you?
CALVIN
You want to do nothing?
ALICE
Yeah, sure. I’m bored.
CALVIN
Well, doing nothing with me isn’t going to fix that problem. Because I’m bored, too.
ALICE
Maybe we could do something…
CALVIN
Like what?
ALICE
I don’t know. We could play a game.
CALVIN
Lame.
ALICE
We could take a walk.
CALVIN
Too hot.
ALICE
You got any ideas?
CALVIN
Nope. Well, I suppose we could go swimming..
ALICE
I can’t swim.
CALVIN
The water’s too cold, anyway.
Kerry enters
KERRY
Wow… look at you two!
ALICE
What?
KERRY
Why are you just sitting here looking bored?
CALVIN
Because we ARE bored?
KERRY
Then let’s do something!
CALVIN
Yeah? Like what?
KERRY
I don’t know. Maybe we could play a game.
ALICE
Calvin thinks games are lame.
KERRY
Then we could play ball or tag or something..
CALVIN AND ALICE
Too hot.
KERRY
We could go swimming!
CALVIN
Alice can’t swim.
ALICE
Besides… the water is too cold.
KERRY
We could do finger painting!
Both Alice and Calvin give Kerry a very strange look. He reacts sheepishly
KERRY
I’m just brainstorming here.
CALVIN
Well your brain is having a draught. You gotta do better than that!
KERRY
I guess I can just sit here and be bored with you guys.
CALVIN
(Saying real bored)
I guess so.
ALICE
(Also very bored-like)
Join the club
They all sit for a minute staring straight ahead, with hands on faces and elbows on knees.
ALICE
I guess we could play “I spy with my little eye…”
Calvin and Kerry look at her like she’s nuts.
ALICE
Maybe that only works on long road trips in a car.
CALVIN
For little kids.
KERRY
No road trip.
CALVIN
No car.
ALICE
And no little kids… I know.
Miss Julie enters
KERRY
Hey Miss Julie!
MISS JULIE
Hi guys. What are you doing?
CALVIN
Nothing.
ALICE
We’re doing nothing and we’re real good at it.
MISS JULIE
Wow. Well, not me. I’m headed to the community church picnic.
CALVIN
What’s that?
MISS JULIE
It’s a big church picnic at Giroux and the entire community is invited.
ALICE
So we can come?
MISS JULIE
Of course! You can all come! They are going to have games and prizes…
KERRY
Great! I love that stuff!
ALICE
Calvin thinks games are lame.
MISS JULIE
And they have face painting…
ALICE
I love face painting!!
CALVIN
I don’t know…
MISS JULIE
And live music.
CALVIN
Really? I like live music. Okay.. I’ll come. When is it? Right now?
MISS JULIE
No… not till September 8th from 12:30 till 3 at Giroux!
ALICE
I thought you said you were going there?
MISS JULIE
I’m going to a planning meeting. That’s why it’s on my mind… I’m really excited about it.
ALICE
So we have to wait till the 8th?
MISS JULIE
Yes… September 8th.
CALVIN
Is it all day?
MISS JULIE
No it starts at lunch… 12:30!
KERRY
There’s going to be food??
CALVIN AND ALICE
It’s a picnic!
KERRY
Oh, right. Picnics and food kind of go together, huh?
CALVIN
And it’s free?
MISS JULIE
Absolutely! So, sounds like you guys would like to come!
ALICE
Better than being bored!
MISS JULIE
Oh… you won’t be bored! There is so much to do!
ALICE
It sure sounds like fun!
MISS JULIE
It will be! I can’t wait! So… I guess I’ll see you three on the 8th at Giroux!
She leaves. The kids sit back down.
ALICE
What shall we do till the 8th?
CALVIN
I don’t know. Be bored I guess.
ALICE
I wonder what kind of food they will have…
KERRY
I wonder what games they will play…
CALVIN
I wonder what music they will have…
They each put their hands behind their heads, lean back and smile, thinking about the picnic. No longer looking bored.
