Recipe for Freedom Opening

Cast: Narrator, 10 Cubs

Props: 1 large kettle, 1 American flag, 1 large wooden spoon, 1 table or tripod, strips of red, white & blue crepe paper.

Curtains opens: Narrator stands behind a kettle, stirring with a wooden spoon.  An American flag is concealed inside the kettle.  For more effect, put a piece of dry ice in a cup in the kettle.  Each Cub steps forward and adds an ingredient.

Narrator: Tonight we commemorate the American Flag that was adopted by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777, as a symbol of our independence from Great Britain.  As an American, what special ingredient would you add?

Cub #1: (sifts confetti inside kettle): SIFT together the freedoms of religion, speech, and the press.

Cub #2: ADD I cup of courage to stand by your convictions.

Cub #3: STIR in generous amount of bravery in memory of our American soldiers.

Cub #4: SPRINKLE in loyalty for our country.

Cub #5: Season with a mixture of all colors and creeds.

Cub #6: MIX in peace, love and happiness for the brotherhood of man.

Cub #7: Fold in opportunity for an education for all people.

Cub #8: Add an abundance of rolling countryside, city skylines, sprawling deserts, and fields of corn.

Cub#9: Blend with spacious skies, majestic mountains, and shining seas.

Cub #10: Combine this mixture with 50 states and simmer slowly for 120 years.

NARRATOR: Ladies and Gentlemen, our recipe for FREEDOM! (narrator pulls out the flag from the bottom of the kettle.)  Please rise and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.
