Gina the giraffe awoke this morning with the most brilliant idea! She was going to put on the best theatrical play of the year and it would all start today! She decided she would be the director but she would definitely need an assistant...
So off she went to find her friend Xavier. He would be perfect! After searching the Herbert House she eventually found him watering the garden.
Gina told Xavier all about her theatrical plans and Xavier agreed it was indeed a fabulous idea, and he would be honoured to be assistant director/producer. He asked her if she had decided on a play. Gina said she had a short list but still hadn't settled on one.
They went inside and did some research on the best plays ever written. Gina thought Little Red Riding Hood would be an excellent choice, Xavier agreed but thought Three Billy Goats Gruff would be slightly more excellent.
They were having trouble choosing so they played scissor, paper, rock for the decider. Gina won so they went with Little Red Riding Hood.
Gina and Xavier agreed they'd have to hold auditions so they made some flyers.
They put up a flyer on the fridge in the Herbert House in case some of their friends wanted to audition.
Then headed out down the street, sticky tape and flyers in hand, ready to start postering!
After putting up their first poster they stood back to admire their work. They agreed if they came across this flyer they would definitely want to audition for the play! Then they saw someone approaching and ran and hid in the bushes to see if their poster was indeed as excellent as they thought.
Edward the wolf was on his midday stroll when he spotted a very colourful flyer on a telegraph pole which immediately drew him in.
'Are you a star' the poster read. Indeed Edward was definitely a star and thought he'd be rather excellent in a production of Little Red Riding Hood so he took the phone number and continued on his midday stroll.
Gina and Xavier were so excited by the success of their first poster that they quickly ran to put up the next one. Once again they went and hid to observe the passers by.
Alice the alpaca was on her way to meet a friend when she came across a rather perplexing flyer asking her if she'd ever wondered what it's be like to be Brad Pitt. She thought about the question and decided the answer was no, at least not until now. But all of a sudden she was very curious to know what it'd be like to be Brad Pitt! In fact she wouldn't object in the slightest if she happened to become an award winning actor so she took the phone number and went on her way.
After seeing the success of their second poster, Gina and Xavier raced home to wait for the phone to ring.
