Bird Brain
Bird Brain
By Richard Vetere.

Cast: 2m., 3w., up to 15 either gender, extras as desired. Queen of Starlings has decided to bully all the other birds in order to steal their food and take away their nesting homes. Everyone, including wise Screech-Owl, Robin, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Blue Jay, and two sparrows, Pretty and Gino, are ready to fly away instead of facing the intimidating, sleek, British-speaking starlings. Undaunted, Sparrow fights off the first wave of bullying with his wit and speed. This angers the queen, so she decides to send her beautiful daughter, Corinne, to disarm him. However, Corinne is immediately charmed by engaging and courageous Sparrow and, seeing his courage and intelligence, she decides to help him. Corinne explains that the only way to impress her mother is to confront her brain to brain. So Sparrow, with his sidekick and nervous cousin, Gino, go on an adventure, with the help of hawks and a cardinal, and fly to the starling empire. Despite Gino's constant fainting when they meet the queen, Sparrow keeps his cool and, using his brain power, shows that love and caring can dispel destructive bullying. In the end, it is the queen who asks for Sparrow's friendship allowing all the different birds to live together in harmony. To celebrate, an oriole from Baltimore arrives in time to give Sparrow a Bird of the Year award for his good work! Flexible set. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
