They must remember

Scene 9 opens with Charlotte walking into the performance lodge

Charlotte: *walks into the performance lodge* Conductor! *walks through performance lodge and then walks backstage* Come out! *spots the Stage Frighteners and Madison and gasps* *whispers* No! Where is he?! *walks out from backstage* *shouts* Conductor! I’m done playing your game!


Conductor: *paces back and forth slowly in kitchen and sighs* All I’ve wanted to do was make you people proud and you all turned me away! *looks at a picture of his parents with a group of actors and the play director* Especially you people! *grabs a knife and starts breathing heavily* *whispers* You didn’t accept me. *starts crying, looks at the knife and throws it across the kitchen, then shouts*

Someone: *muffled groaning*

Conductor: Quiet, boy! I’m sick and tired of all of you treating me so poorly!

(Remembrance starts playing)

Conductor: *singing* You may not remember who I am, even though I’ve been in many programs! I am the one who’s skills you slammed! You told me I wasn’t good enough and just to scram! I have been practicing my skills throughout the years, and all I’ve wanted was for someone to cheer! Your hurtful words were made very clear and my wrath is what you’re gonna fear!

Someone: *muffled shouting*

Conductor: *normal* Shut up, you!

Someone: *stops shouting*

Conductor: There’s no turning back now! There’s nothing you can do to change the past! This is the person I became because of people like you!

Someone: *muffled groan*

Conductor: I was depressed! I felt unwanted and rejected! I felt like I had no purpose in life! You made me want to end my life! *hits person across the face with a microphone*

Someone: *muffled painful groan*

Conductor: *singing* I’m so sick and tired of people telling me that I’m not good enough! Conducting has been my dream, not all that other piano stuff! I’ve been wanting to conduct in programs for such a long while, playing on the piano or the keyboard just really wasn’t my style! I’m so sick and tired of people telling me that I’m not good enough! Conducting has been my dream, not all that other piano stuff! I’ve been wanting to conduct in programs for such a long while, playing on the piano or the keyboard just really wasn’t my style! I just want all the pain to end, just so I can finally live my dream! No more programs for me to attend, and now I can complete my scheme! No more words for me to cry, my conducting skills will shoot through the sky! I’ll show all of you I’m a conducting man! I’m never going back to the place where it all began! I just want all the pain to end, just so I can finally live my dream! No more programs for me to attend, and now I can complete my scheme! No more words for me to cry, my conducting skills will shoot through the sky! I’ll show all of you I’m a conducting man! I’m never going back to the place where it all began!

(Remembrance stops playing)

Charlotte: *walks into the kitchen* Conductor!

Conductor: *turns to face Charlotte* Well, well, well. You’ve finally arrived.

Charlotte: You’re not going to ruin the show, Conductor!

Conductor: What makes you think that? You can’t put an end to what I’ve started!

Charlotte: Do you really think revenge is the right choice, Conductor?! OR should I say, Mr. Paris?!

Conductor: *stays silent for a moment*

Charlotte: I know it’s you!

Conductor: *sighs*

Charlotte: *There’s no point in you wearing your mask anymore. *reaches for the Conductor’s mask*

Conductor: *pushes Charlotte’s hand away* Don’t! Stay away from me!

Someone: *muffled shouting*

Charlotte: What the…? Who is that?!

Conductor: No one important.

Charlotte: Show me who it is!

Conductor: You know what? Fine! I’ll show it! *walks into food storage room and pulls out a person tied to a chair with a bag over their head*

Charlotte: Take the bag off of their head!

Conductor: *growls and yanks the bag off of the person’s head*

Charlotte: What?!

Someone: *gasps for air and breathes heavily*

Charlotte: Mr. Paris?!

Mr. Paris: *faintly* Miss Charlotte. Get out of here.

Charlotte: No! *walks towards Mr. Paris*

Conductor: *stands in between Charlotte and Mr. Paris* You aren’t getting any closer to this man!

Charlotte: *tries pushing past the Conductor*

Conductor: *grabs Charlotte and sets her in a chair, pulls out a rope from his pocket and ties her up* Now you won’t be able to rescue this man from his fate.

Charlotte: No! Don’t!

Conductor: *holds his microphone firm in the air and gets ready to swing it*
