THE FIFTH WITCH
Readers Theater Scripts
Merlin plans to teach the king a lesson about loyalty and, before leaving, hires the replacement himself. He teaches the king a "magic chant" to summon the witch whenever he wants. The king, however, doesn't like the first witch who appears, and demands another.
In the end, five witches (each a little larger and louder than the one before) come and go, but not before one of them turns the king into a monkey! Merlin, of course, saves the day.
