SINGING 

 

Take a look at the video below and have a listen to the song Speechless from Disney's Aladdin. Follow along with the lyrics underneath. Once you have learned the song there is also a backing track for the song underneath for you to sing along with. 

 

BEFORE YOU START REMEMBER TO WARM UP! 

SEE VOCAL WARM UPS IN THE TAB AT THE TOP OF THE HOME-LEARNING PERFORMING ARTS PAGE!

 

Remember, have fun with it. Don't try to sing it like Naomi Scott. Use your own voice and have fun playing around with different parts of the song. Drink plenty of water and take a take a breaks. Don't over sing or sing too loud as you don't want to lose your voice or  damage your vocal chords.

Backing Track for Speechless

Speechless Lyrics 

 

Here comes a wave
Meant to wash me away
A tide that is taking me under
Swallowing sand
Left with nothing to say
My voice drowned out in the thunder

But I won't cry
And I won't start to crumble
Whenever they try
To shut me or cut me down

I won't be silenced
You can't keep me quiet
Won't tremble when you try it
All I know is I won't go speechless

'Cause I'll breathe
When they try to suffocate me
Don't you underestimate me
'Cause I know that I won't go speechless

Written in stone
Every rule, every word
Centuries-old and unbending
"Stay in your place"
"Better seen and not heard"
Well, now that story is ending

'Cause I
I cannot start to crumble
So come on and try
Try to shut me and cut me down

I won't be silenced
You can't keep me quiet
Won't tremble when you try it
All I know is I won't go speechless
Speechless

Let the storm in
I cannot be broken
No, I won't live unspoken
'Cause I know that I won't go speechless

Try to lock me in this cage
I won't just lay me down and die
I will take these broken wings
And watch me burn across the sky
Hear the echo saying I...

Won't be silenced
Though you wanna see me tremble when you try it
All I know is I won't go speechless
Speechless

'Cause I'll breathe
When they try to suffocate me
Don't you underestimate me
'Cause I know that I won't go speechless
All I know is I won't go speechless
Speechless

 

 

SCENE 2

(THE MARKETPLACE. Realizing the coast is clear, the two cloaked figures turn downstage and remove their hoods: they are ALADDIN and JASMINE. JASMINE reaches under her cloak and withdraws the loaf of bread, which she extends to ALADDIN.)

JASMINE

I don't understand. Why would anybody steal a loaf of bread?

ALADDIN

Gee, I dunno. Acute hunger pangs? Lightness of head? Rude growling noises from the stomach? All of the above?

JASMINE

Hunger pangs? What's that?

ALADDIN

You're not from around here, are you?

JASMINE

Of course I'm from around here!

ALADDIN

Nah. You're too nice. And too scared.

JASMINE

Well, sure I'm scared. Those people chasing us were so angry!

 

ALADDIN

That's Agrabah: hungry and angry. But when you're trapped here, you get used to it.

JASMINE

Believe me, you're not trapped. You're free to go anywhere you want. Do anything you want.

ALADDIN

Tell me the truth. This is your first time in the marketplace, isn't it?

JASMINE

(looks around, cagey)

Well, my first time in this particular marketplace.

ALADDIN

It's the only marketplace we have.

 

JASMINE

(caught)

Oops.

(ALADDIN and JASMINE laugh.)

ALADDIN

So you don't wanna tell me where you're from. Fine. But I bet wherever it is, it's – well, it's gotta be—

JASMINE

Boring?

ALADDIN

Wow! The Palace looks amazing from here, doesn't it?

JASMINE

(bored)

Oh, yes, it's wonderful. Always perfectly wonderful.

 

ALADDIN

Imagine what it would be like to live there. No worries. Never hungry. And all those servants!

JASMINE

(disgusted)

And the servants of the servants.

ALADDIN

Cool!

JASMINE

"Cool?" Someone always watching you? Telling you where

to go and who to see? (covering) Well, anyway, that's how I imagine it would be.

ALADDIN

Yeah? Well, I think I could handle it.

JASMINE

Not if you weren't free to live your own life!

(ALADDIN studies her for a moment.)

ALADDIN

You're not going back to wherever you came from, are you?

JASMINE

Not if I can help it.

(leveling with him)

If I do, the Sult— uh, my father will force me to get married.

ALADDIN

Force you? Whoa.

JASMINE

And to someone I don't even know!

ALADDIN

You shouldn't have to do that!

JASMINE

Exactly!

ALADDIN

Exactly!

(ALADDIN and JASMINE smile at one another.)

JASMINE

So how come you can understand what I'm feeling? Why can't the people who actually know me?

ALADDIN

Maybe they just don't see you the way I do.

(ALADDIN and JASMINE regard one another for a few beats. POLICE WHISTLE!)

ALADDIN

Quick! This way!

 

                                                                  

 

Jafar and Iago Scene

 

JAFAR

You have news?

IAGO

The Princess is back. Not a scratch on her.

JAFAR

And that thieving boy from the marketplace?

IAGO

In custody – with several scratches.

JAFAR

Excellent.

IAGO

Yeah, I thought you'd be pleased.

JAFAR

"Pleased?"

IAGO

Yeah! Ever heard of it?

JAFAR

(beat)

"Pleased" to be playing nursemaid to a spoiled Princess?

"Pleased" to be keeping tabs on every petty thief in

Agrabah? While day in and day out that blithering idiot remains Sultan!

IAGO

(changing the subject)

What'cha workin' on there, boss?

JAFAR

(sarcastic)

Just trying to earn my pen licence!

IAGO

Looks like one very old, very important document

 

(JAFAR blows to dry the ink.)

JAFAR

Yes, it’s Agrabah’s ancient marriage laws for a Royal Princess, with a nice, new paragraph I just added. Listen to this:

"Should an unmarried Royal Princess, who is sole heir to the throne, fail to choose a husband within the time allotted for such selection, the Sultan's highest-ranking official— "

IAGO

That would be you.

JAFAR

Let me finish!

(continuing)

"... the Sultan's highest-ranking official" – that would be me

– "will immediately become betrothed to the Princess and

will himself inherit all the rights, privileges, and powers of the Sultan."

IAGO

So now all we gotta do is make sure she doesn't fall for anybody before tomorrow.

JAFAR

And if she does, we make sure he has...

IAGO

A freakish, tragic accident.

JAFAR

A freakish, tragic accident.

(JAFAR and IAGO laugh wickedly.)

IAGO

As you wish, my "Sultan-to-be."

JAFAR

"As I wish!" When have things ever been as I wished?

MONOLOGUES 

This next section is all about monologues. 

 

In theatre, a monologue is a speech presented by a single character, most often to express their mental thoughts aloud, though sometimes also to directly address another character or the audience. 

 

If you carry on scrolling down on this page you will see a selection of monologues for you to try out. There is also a fantastic video tutorial from the Royal Exchange in Manchester. This will help you to plan out your monologue so that you understand your character you are playing and you can deliver your monologue to the best of your ability.

Charlie & The Chocolate Factory Monologues


 

VIOLET:

 I’m a gum chewer, normally, but when I heard about

Wonka’s contest, I laid off the gum and switched to candy bars. Now of course, I’m right back on gum. In fact, I’ve been working on this piece for over three months solid. I’ve beaten the record set by my best friend, Cornelia Prinzmetel. Hi, Cornelia…listen to this… (Violet chews loudly into the microphone.) That’s the sound of you losing! Listen some more… (Violet chews even more loudly adding smacks and pops.)

 

 

SLUGWORTH:

I congratulate you, little boy. Well done. You found the fifth Golden Ticket. May I introduce myself. Arthur Slugworth, President of Slugworth Chocolates, Incorporated. Now listen carefully because I’m going to make you very rich indeed. Mr. Wonka is at this moment working on a fantastic invention: the Everlasting Gobstopper. If he succeeds, he’ll ruin me. So all I want you to do is to get hold of just one Everlasting Gobstopper and bring it to me so that I can find the secret formula. Your reward will be ten thousand of these. (he flips through a stack of money) Think it over, will you. A new house for your family, and good food and comfort for the rest of their lives. And don’t forget the name: Everlasting Gobstopper.
