As the actor/actress, I had to choose a scene from chapters 9-12 and change the scene into a script. My scene is the morning of Willie's birthday.
(Willie is sound asleep in his bed)
Willie- (Stirs from his sleep and leaps out of bed) (yawns)
Tom- (comes into Willie’s room) Mornin’ boy! Oh and before I forget, Happy Birthday!
(Tom helps Willie get changed and they go downstairs)
Willie- (sitting by himself at a table writing lines on a piece of paper)
Tom- (walks in and looks over Willie’s shoulder) Practicin’ your writin’ eh?
Willie- (scrunches his face at the paper and then turns to Tom) Ummm… Yes, Sir.. I mean Mister Tom (turns back to the paper and starts writing again)
Tom- (pats Willies head) Such a clever little lad.
Willie- (Smiles but then stares hard at the paper, Tries to sound out the sentence) I..I..am.. am.. Wi.. Wi.. Wi
Tom- What’s that lad? (Takes a look at the paper) Ah… Try sound it out I a-m Wil-li-am Bee-ch.
Willie- (stares hard at the paper) I… am… Wi.. Wi…
Tom- (Picks the paper up and looks at it) That’s very neat handwritin’ you got there boy.
Willie- (smiles weakly)
