Jabberwocky - Boyd Bacon

Jabberwocky Rehearsal MP3 2012-4-24

Lyrics and Actions

*Shhhhh
`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
  And the mome raths out *choo grabe.

*RH 1 finger to lips, slowly lower hand



*head bob like sneezing
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
  The jaws that *bite, the claws that *catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
  The frumious Bandersnatch!"
*(whistle)


*hand clap like aligator jaws 


*look left to right over 3 beats then whip head back to left
He took his *vorpal sword in hand:
  Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So *rested he by the Tumtum tree,
  And stood awhile in thought.

*ladies pull sword w/ right hand 

*sword hand melts to relaxed position w/ right hand under chin & left hand under right elbow
Freeze
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
  The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came *whiffling through the **tulgey wood,
  And *burbled **as it *came!

 

*Stomp Left **Stomp Right
*Stomp Left **Stomp Right
*One, **two! *One, *+two!
And *through and **through
  The *vorpal **blade went ***snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and *with its head
  He went galumphing back.
     *(7 beats) 

*RH hold out first finger, **RH two fingers, +shake head (loose lips)
*left sword jab, **right sword jab
***straight twisting sword jab 
*pick up head with disgusted face

*turn in circle counterclockwise
"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
  Come to my *arms, my beamish boy!
O *frabjous day! **Callooh! Callay!'
  He chortled in his joy.


*whip arms open
*Hands clasped to Right of head, **Hands clasped to Left of head
  Big Cheesy Grin
`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
  And the mome raths out *choo grabe.
 


*head bob like sneezing
words by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)
