SETTING: A restaurant. You could also put on this play in your kitchen or dining room.
(All characters sing their lines in dramatic fashion. At the start, the Customer is sitting at a table, looking at a bowl of soup. The Waiter enters.)
Mademoiselle, what is the problem?
I can't eat this soup!
Ah, yes I will send for the head chef.
Hey, mac, come 'ere on de double.
(The Chef enters.)
(Chef speaks in fake French accent.)
This woman claims she cannot eat our soupe du jour.
Oh, my. I will call for the manager. Miss Smith, could you step over here for a minute?
Is there anything I can do to help?
This woman says that she cannot eat her soup.
Oh, my, my, my...So busy...busy...busy! Call in the FBI! Terribly sorry about this, but there is nothing I can do to help.
But all I want is. . .
Oh, never mind that! We'll get you the salt later.
(Manager exits. The FBI Agent walks in looking annoyed.)
What seems to be the problem here?
This customer cannot eat her soup, so she says. Can you help us?
This is a matter for the President!!
(Customer sighs just as the President walks in.)
Young lady you have called me all the way from Washington, D.C! Now what is the problem, why can't you eat your soup!?
I DON'T HAVE A SPOON!!!!!!!!!
All (except Customer):
(First they say it, then they sing it.)
Here ya go!
(Waiter hands Customer a spoon.)
