1. Kwaheri Kenya [samples Kwaheri song]

[Scene: The stage has fake plants and a sunny orange background, and a Jeep parked with a silhouette of a girl sat in the back. A couple wave to three African women in traditional clothes and the woman falls into the man arms sobbing.] [The three women sing whilst waving]

Kwa heri kwa heri mm pen si kwa heri kwa heri kwa heri mm pen si kwa heri
[Repeat] [As the couple walk to the Jeep, the woman still tearfull, the back window rolls down and Cady is revealed to the audience. She looks out at the women] [Speech] Cady: Goodbye Africa! Kwaheri! [Major chord piano starts playing and so does the rest of the band] [The couple, Cadys Mom and Dad, get into the Jeep and start the engine] [Song] [1st Verse] [Three women continue to sing in Unison as Cady starts verse] Cady:

Goodbye Africa, I must move on. To bigger things than the 2nd biggest continent on Earth! Goodbye Africa, theres a lump in my throat, as I journey on and find my new home! [x2]
[Chorus] [Scene: The Jeep moves onto another set, an airfield, where waiting is a plane. The three women follow on singing] Three women:

Tu tata na na tena tu ke sha re wa tu tata na na tena tu ke sha re wa [x2]


As I say farewell, I dont feel all swell! Im in fear Of moving to the USA, my eyes start to swell, with tears
Three women: [back to Kwaheri verse and] [Repeat until Chorus] Cady:

Goodbye, Africa. Farewell, Kenya Kwaheri, Africa. Kwaheri, Kenya

[The Herons get out of the Jeep, all emotional, and onto the airplane. The plane escalates into the air to the audiences amazement. The family waves down to the women who wave back. Cady and the women continue to sing.] [2nd Verse] Cady:

Farewell Africa, as I move on, I start to sweat. My parents say that its for the best. Farewell Africa, I must move on, Im nervous about my new home but I must have hope!
[x2] [Scene: The plane passes an American flag backdrop as Cady sings the 2nd verse. The women leave the stage but continue to sing with the band] [Repeat Chorus] [Scene: The Herons land in an American airport. They wave goodbye to the plane and carry their luggage threw customs. Then, we are introduced to the Herons new American house. They drop off their luggage at the doorstep and Cady gets her school stuff out of the suitcases as they sing the bridge] [Bridge] Three women: [Tu tata verse] [Repeat] Mrs Heron:

Do you have your schoolbag?


Mr Heron:

What about your pencil case?


Mrs Heron:

Appropriate uniform?

[Music pauses] Mr Heron: *speech* This is your lunch, OK? I put a dollar in there so you can buy some milk. [Music starts] Cady:

*long note* Check!

[Final Chorus] [Scene: Cady walks to school. We see the sports turf and students busily walking past. They all stare down at Cady as she sings. The backdrop has a picture of a stretch of grass on the sports turf and the school building behind with the distant sign NORTH SHORE HIGH SCHOOL] Three women: [Kwaheri Verse] [Repeat until end] Cady: *Narrates to audience* I know what youre thinking. Its like shes never been to school or something and its true. Normally kids have that moment when theyre 5, but I was home-schooled until then. Living in Africa was great. My parents are research zoologists. But

then my Mom got offered a tenure at Northwestern university. So it was goodbye Kenya and hello Illinois. And, of course, high school. Cady:

Goodbye, Farewell, Kwaheri Africa! Goodbye, Farewell, Kwaheri Kenya!

[Scene: Cady excitedly runs off stage and the new set is Ms Norburys maths classroom. Students are seated at their desks. Cady walks in and approaches Kristen Hadley] Cady: Hi, I dont know if anyone told you about me. Im a new student here. My names Cady Heron. Kristen: Talk to me again and Ill kick your ass *chuckles* Janis Ian & Damien: *sniggers* [Cady takes a seat] Janis: You dont wanna sit there.

Oh, I meant to say cool, but I started to say great *laughs nervously* Aaron: *laughs* OK, grool. See ya around. [Cady gazes at Aaron as he walks away] [Damien wolf whistles and sniggers with Janis] Ms Norbury: *walks in class with coffee cup* Hey guys [Cady walks backwards into Ms Norbury and she spills coffee on herself] Cady: Oh, God Im so sorry! Ms Norbury: Its not your fault, Im just bad luck. [Principal Duvall walks in] Mr Duvall: Ms Norbury [Ms Norbury lifts up shirt and Cady helps her] Ms Norbury: My shirts stuck to my sweater, isnt it? Mr Duvall & Cady: *in unison* Yeah

Ms Norbury: *says sarcastically* Fantastic Mr Duvall: Is everything alright in here? Ms Norbury: Oh, yeah! *shirt is off and is just wearing her vest which is wet and see-through Mr Duvall: So how was your summer? Ms Norbury: I got divorced Mr Duvall: My carpal tunnel came back. Ms Norbury: I win. Mr Duvall: You certainly do. Mr Duvall: *speaks to class* I just wanted to let everyone now that we have a new student joining North Shore High. She just moved here all the way from Africa. Ms Norbury: *looks at black girl sat down at desk* Welcome! Black girl: *looks around and then looks at Ms Norbury* Im from Michigan Ms Norbury: Great! Mr Duvall: Her name is Caddie, Caddie Heron. Where are you, Cady? Cady: Its pronounced like Cay-dee Mr Duvall: My apologies

Mr Duvall: Why, thank you. *quietens down voice* And if you need anything or if you need to talk to me. Ms Norbury: Maybe some other time, you know, when my shirt isnt see-through? Mr Duvall: Yes, of course. *looks down at Ms Norburys shirt*. Good day, everybody. *leaves* [Scene: The set changes to cafeteria. All the cliques are sat together and Cady tries to find somewhere to sit] Cady: *narrates to audience* The first day of school was a blur. *walks to Cool Asians table* *girl puts bag on extra seat and gives a mean look at Cady* A stressful, surreal blur. *walks past table of boys* Boy: Dude, Im telling you, I saw everything! Jason: It only counts if you saw nipple Boy: Thats true, bro. Cady: *continues to walk and narrate to the audience* I had no one to sit with at lunch, even the African students *walks past table with black people* *to black people* Jambo! Black girl: Did you just say Sambo Black boy: The fuck?

2. Built This Way (Samantha Ronson cover reworked lyrics) [Scene: Cady walks into the new set- a girls bathroom. Girls are doing their make-up in the mirror and they stare down at Cady] [1st Verse] Cady:

Did you ever feel like you wanna be someone else for just one day?
*goes into toilet cubicle with her lunch. Mirrors are taken down and the cubicle door is see-through so the audience can see Cady. The girls walk away*

Did you ever feel like you wanna see through another pair of eyes? Did you ever think I might wanna fit in with you for just one day? Did you ever even think of me, when tears fell down my face?

The looks, the cliques and the cartons of milk * holds milk carton up* The stares, nose flares, my eyes down You think you know me, that Im a geek You think that Im weak You think youll know what I wont share, but I dont care no, I dont care You think that Im a weak geek, but I dont care *Cady cries*

And I wonder, if Im just built this way coz everyone at this school makes me feel like I dont fit in When its over, me and my misfit ways go back to start again go back to start again

[2nd Verse]

Did you ever feel like you should have introduced Yourself smarter at the time? Did you ever feel like you should have sat all by yourself? Did you ever think that it mightve hurt my feelings? Oh, no no. Did you ever think that it might be, no it was all because of me.
[Repeat bridge] [Repeat chorus] [Cady drops dinner and throws it at the side of the cubicle and sobs] [Repeat bridge] [Cady comes out of the cubicle and cries into the mirror. The mirror is transparent also] [Repeat chorus x3, repeat go back to start again x3] [The set changes to Cadys house. Her Mom and Dad are sat on the front porch] Mr Heron: Hey! How was your first day? Cady: *huffs and runs inside* [Cadys parents look concerned at each other. Cady rests on window sill and gives a deep, miserable sigh. The lights go low to give a nighttime effect and Cady lays back and goes to sleep. Her parents walk inside]
