Scene 5 Edelweiss
Maria: Anna Y Uncle Max: Sebastian A Rolf: Anthony D
Captain: Karan S Liesl: Allison R
LIESL: I don’t like the Baroness.
MARIA: You should give her a chance.
LIESL: I have tried. It’s not working.
MARIA: Keep trying, we all deserve a chance.
LIESL: I would love to be a beautiful Baroness!
MARIA: You are to me! You are a lovely person inside and out!
LIESL: Thank you so much, Maria. I don’t always feel so good. Singing makes me so happy.
MARIA: Always keep a song in your pocket. You’ll never regret it!
(Enter Baroness and Uncle Max)
BARONESS: Now, Liesl, I’ll have my tea every day at exactly 2 o’clock, no cream, no sugar.
LIESL: YES SIR!
BARONESS? What did you say?
LIESL: I said yes m’am.
BARONESS: That’s what I thought. Please don’t be late with my tea.
LIESL: She is NO princess.
MARIA: Liesl, be nice, please.
BARONESS: Excuse me, did you say something?
LIESL: I was just saying…
MARIA: She was just wondering if you would like something to eat?
BARONESS: Oh, I am watching what I eat.
MARIA: You are simply lovely.
BARONESS: Well, thank you.
UNCLE MAX: I agree, Maria. The captain should have a party to show her off.
BARONESS: What a marvelous idea. I am pretty fabulous.
UNCLE MAX: Isn’t it about time for the Captain to marry you?
BARONESS: I may have a secret to share soon! (The captain and Rolf enter..)
CAPTAIN: MARIA! I found this young man throwing rocks at Liesl’s window.
ROLF: Oh, Captain. I didn’t see, I mean, I didn’t know…er, uh…I’m sorry.
LIESL: He didn’t mean anything by it, Father. You would like him!
CAPTAIN: Why are you here, young man?
LIESL: He came over to study.
ROLF: You have a lovely house, sir.
CAPTAIN: That is very nice of you to say but why were you throwing rocks?
ROLF: Um, well, I didn’t want to bother you, you are a busy person.
CAPTAIN: Next time, ring the doorbell.
ROLF: Yes, sir.
CAPTAIN: What do you have in your hand?
ROLF: I have a telegram for you.
LIESL: Is there a telegram for me?
CAPTAIN: Alright, you’ve delivered your telegram. Time for you to go, now.
ROLF: Yes, sir. Goodbye.
LIESL: Goodbye, Rolf!
ROLF: See you later!
LIESL: Thank you for coming!
LIESL: Have a good day!
CAPTAIN: That is enough, you two. Goodbye!
MARIA: He is just a boy. You could have been nicer.
CAPTAIN: You take care of the children. Leave me alone.
LIESL: Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do!
CAPTAIN: Are you singing??
MARIA: Doesn’t she have a beautiful voice?
CAPTAIN: That doesn’t matter. What are we, a singing family?
UNCLE MAX: What a wonderful idea! We can start rehearsing right away!
MARIA: How exciting!
UNCLE MAX: Under my management, you will be a famous singing family in NO TIME!
CAPTAIN: Max, we have talked about this before.
UNCLE MAX: Let’s keep talking about it! Turn that frown upside down!
MARIA: Please consider the idea! Singing makes the children so happy!
UNCLE MAX: Don’t you want them to be happy?
MARIA: You love them so much!
CAPTAIN: You are causing a lot of trouble Maria.
UNCLE MAX: Captain, it was my idea too.
CAPTAIN: I have to put up with you. Maria is a different story.
MARIA: We could tell stories with our songs!
CAPTAIN: This is getting out of hand.
MARIA: We could sing songs about our wonderful country of Austria.
UNCLE MAX: What is that beautiful song about the flower?
UNCLE MAX: Yes! Shall we sing it?
CAPTAIN: That is enough. I am finished with this conversation.
MARIA: I am not finished yet, Captain!
CAPTAIN: Oh yes, you are!
MARIA: You should really watch your temper!
CAPTAIN: I am in charge here. It’s time for you to go back to the convent.
MARIA: Of course you are but it’s time to bring more kindness back to this house.
CAPTAIN: That is NONE of your business. Leave our house, now.
UNCLE MAX: Don’t be rash! Maria has been so wonderful since she came here!
CAPTAIN: She has been a headache since she came here!
MARIA: Oh, Captain, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have overstepped.
CAPTAIN: No you shouldn’t have.
MARIA: Please don’t ask me to leave. I love it here.
UNCLE MAX: And the children love her. You are making a big mistake.
BARONESS: Well this is awkward. Captain, darling, take a minute and don’t make any decisions.
UNCLE MAX: Don’t you have a special announcement?
CAPTAIN: Oh alright. I am so glad you are here and not a problem like some people.
BARONESS: We should have a party.
UNCLE MAX: What a fabulous idea!!
CAPTAIN: Okay, Yes, we will have a party and you can stay for now, Maria.
MARIA: I promise to be on my best behavior!
UNCLE MAX: Good luck with that, Maria!
MARIA: You’re not wrong, Max.
BARONESS: I am so proud of myself. I always fix things, don’t I?
UNCLE MAX: Yes, you are quite something.
LIESL: Father, may I invite Rolf?
UNCLE MAX: Ahhh young love.
CAPTAIN: Don’t push it!
MARIA: He’s right, Liesl. Let’s not push it.
LIESL: But it’s not fair!
MARIA: Your father knows best.
CAPTAIN: Thank you, Maria.
UNCLE MAX: There you go Maria! You are getting the hang of it.
CAPTAIN: I guess I’ll see you later Maria.
MARIA: See you later, Captain.
BARONESS: Come along, Maria. You need to help me get ready.
UNCLE MAX: The crisis is over, at least for now.

ROLF: I am so glad that your father let me come to the party.
LIESL: Maria convinced him.
UNCLE MAX: Now we need to get Maria to convince him that singing should be allowed and encouraged!
ROLF: I guess they aren’t fighting anymore.
LIESL: You’re right. He even laughs at her silly jokes now.
UNCLE MAX: Cupid has come to this lovely home.
ROLF: I am so glad they are getting along.
LIESL: He is so much happier since Maria came to live with us.
UNCLE MAX: And I will be happy as the manager of the Von Trapp family singers.
ROLF: I hope Maria never leaves.
LIESL: She will have to leave if Father marries the Baroness.
ROLF: I think your father likes Maria better.
UNCLE MAX: I think you are right, young man. (Uncle Max leaves)
LIESL: Hmmm, maybe he does! I know I DO!! Girls, let’s practice your curtsy.
GRETEL: Won’t my knees get tired?
LOUISA: That is the price of being beautiful.
FRIEDRICH: You aren’t talking about you, are you?
KURT: I think the girls look great. But then again, I am the most beautiful!
BRIGITTA: Dance with me! Don’t be scared!
MARTA: We’ve never had a party in the house before, this is so exciting.
GRETEL: I love PARTIES!!
LOUISA: There used to be lots of parties here.
FRIEDERICH: Kurt & I used to sneak out and watch everyone from the top of the stairs.
KURT: Father never caught us. We are fast like lightning.
BRIGITTA: You are so lucky. You would have been grounded!
MARTA: I never have any fun.
GRETEL: I can’t wait to grow up. Being little is a bummer.
LOUISA: I was small but I remember the wonderful orchestra.
FRIEDRICH: My favorite instruments were the strings playing the waltzs.
BRIGITTA: Who are you dancing with, Kurt?
KURT: My favorite person, me!
MARTA: Dance with me, little sister!
GRETEL: Let’s spin around! (They fall down and laugh)
ROLF: May I have this dance, Liesl?
LIESL: I thought that you would never ask.
MARIA: Children, why didn’t you tell me you could dance?
LOUISA: You know why. Too much fun makes father sad.
FRIEDRICK: I was afraid you’d make us dance together.
MARIA: (To Kurt) May I have this dance Friedrich?
FRIEDRICH: Of course!
CAPTAIN VON TRAPP: May I cut in?
MARIA: (surprised) Oh dear.
FRIEDRICH: Maria was my partner! Ok fine father.
CAPTAIN: Thank you, son.
MARIA: I guess it’s ok. (They dance)
LOUISA: They look so lovely together.
FRIEDRICH: I am glad they aren’t mad at each other anymore.
BRIGITTA: Father is looking at her with a big smile.
KURT: I love when he smiles.
MARTA: He barely smiles anymore.
GRETEL: He smiles at me because I am so cute.
LOUISA: I wish Maria could be father’s new wife.
FRIEDRICH: They do seem happy whenever they are together.
BRIGITTA: Maybe we can put a frog in Baroness’ pocket book!
KURT: Let’s go get the frogs in my room!
MARTA: I can help!!
GRETEL: Me too! I want Maria to stay with us forever! (Baroness and Uncle Max enter)
BARONESS: GEORGE! There you are! How nice of you to dance with our Nanny!
UNCLE MAX: Relax darling, they were just dancing.
MARIA: I am so sorry. (She runs out of the room)
CAPTAIN: Max is right. We were just dancing, no big deal.
UNCLE MAX: No big deal at all, breathe in and out.
BARONESS: I don’t need to breathe!
UNCLE MAX: It can’t hurt.
FRIEDRICH: Uh oh, now what??
LOUISA: Maria, you are blushing!
BRIGITTA: You should keep dancing!
KURT: I’ll dance with the Baroness. I have great moves.
MARTA: The Baroness won’t mind.
GRETEL: Come and play a game with me Baroness.
BARONESS: It’s time for our announcement George!
UNCLE MAX: She’s right! It’s time for your announcement!
CAPTAIN: Um, yes, of course…
BARONESS: Don’t be shy, George.
CAPTAIN: I am feeling kind of tired.
BARONESS: You can always sleep.
ALL KIDS: What’s the announcement father??
CAPTAIN: Well, we wanted to tell you……….
ALL KIDS: Yes????
CAPTAIN: We had something important to tell you……
ALL KIDS: WE WANT TO KNOW!
CAPTAIN: What was it again?
ALL KIDS: FATHER!
BARONESS: We are getting married!!
CAPTAIN: Yes, um, we are getting married.
ALL KIDS: WHAT?
UNCLE MAX: Children meet your new mother.
CAPTAIN: Children, be nice.
BARONESS: That’s ok, children. It’s time for me to powder my nose.
CAPTAIN: Good idea, come back and we can dance a waltz together!
UNCLE MAX: It won’t be like a waltz with Maria.
BARONESS: What did you say?
UNCLE MAX: I said it will be the best waltz ever.
CAPTAIN: Yes it will!
UNCLE MAX: Let’s go now. You can show me your engagement ring! I LOVE DIAMONDS!
BARONESS: I need a vacation. (They leave)
LOUISA: Father, where did Maria go?
FRIEDRICH: I don’t see her anywhere!
KURT: Oh no!! She’s gone!
BRIGITTA: We have to find her.
MARTA: Maybe she went back to being a nun.
GRETEL: She is probably sad.
CHILDREN: What are we going to do? We must find her!

MARIA: Is it obvious? Do you think the Captain knows?

RM: The children came to see you. They all miss you so much.
MARIA: That’s terrible. He’s getting married!
RM: Maybe things have changed.
MARIA: What should I do?
RM: You have to face your fears. I think it was meant to be that you would be their nanny and fall in love with the Captain.

MARIA: I will follow every rainbow until I find my dream. I have to go now!

LIESL: Why do you sound different?
ROLF: I am afraid that I don’t have very good news.
LIESL: What does the telegram say?
ROLF: Your father will have to read it.
LIESL: We can meet at our special place!
ROLF: No we can’t. I have more important things to do now.
LIESL: You are breaking my heart.
CAPTAIN: What is going on here? Give me that telegram.
ROLF: It is urgent sir.
CAPTAIN: I have been called into the Navy.
ROLF: It is mandatory that you go.
CAPTAIN: I have to report tomorrow morning.
LIESL: How could you do this Rolf?
ROLF: It’s my job. I am being sent away too.
LIESL: I don’t know what I am going to do. Will I ever see you again Rolf?
ROLF: I don’t know. I have to go now.
LIESL: Will I ever see you again?

CAPTAIN: Yes! Maria you’re back!
MARIA: I missed you so much!
CAPTAIN: We missed you too! I missed you.

CAPTAIN: I sent her away.
CAPTAIN: Because I don’t love her. I told the Baroness that we had to find you.
MARIA: Find me?
CAPTAIN: The children missed you. And, I missed you.
MARIA: I missed you too.
CAPTAIN: I love you Maria. We love you.
MARIA: I love you all. I am sorry I ran away. I guess I was scared.
CAPTAIN: You’re back now. I am so glad. Will you stay?
CAPTAIN: I think we should take Max’s advice and become a singing group.
UNCLE MAX: Now, you’re talking!

MARIA: OH NO! Austria is changing so much!
LIESL: I can’t believe I ever liked Rolf.
CAPTAIN: I don’t feel good about returning to the Navy.
MARIA: I think we should take our singing family on the road.
CAPTAIN: That’s a great idea.
MARIA: Maybe we can go to the United States?
CAPTAIN: Sure!! Maria, would you marry me? Be my wife and mother to the children!
MARIA: YES!! I say, YES. I love you all so much! (They hug)
