 Pioneer Youth – Annabelle & Ariana
“The sun has been setting sooner, Autumn is on it’s way
the dreams I planted here last spring can be harvested today”

Lyrics from:  Harvesting My Dreams

This Musical features 14 songs by Pierre Jacques Pleau

Annabelle, Georgette & Ariana
Ariana:  “This evening we’re going to celebrate our harvest - would you like to join us Georgette?!”
Georgette:  “I’d love to Ariana, but I don’t know if I can afford to take time away from bringing in the crops.”
Annabelle:  “Taking a few hours away from the field Georgette, would rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit – and give you strength to meet the days ahead.”
 Ariana:  “Please say you’ll come, Georgette. We’re inviting everyone who helped us replant our tater crop.”
Georgette:  “Well I suppose in that case, I should really be helping you host the celebration; being that everyone helped me plant my crops as well.  Yes Ariana – I’ll come!”
 Pernella, Rheanna, Tasha & Fuchsia
 ~ Meeting of the Fairies for the Changing of the Seasons ~
Rheanna:    “Fuchsia, I was wondering how to explain to the critters that not all food is free for the taking.”
Fuchsia:    “Are you referring to the fields of vegetables and grains that the pioneers planted.”
Rheanna:    “Yes that’s right.”
Pernella:    “I was wondering the same thing.  I imagine that it could cause a bit of confusion for the animals that are used to foraging on this land.”
Rheanna:    “Especially for raccoons!”
 ~ Raccoons – Rusty & Royal venture out of their den to look for food ~
Rusty:  “What do you smell Royal?”
Royal:  “Autumn is coming!”
Rusty:  “Who is Autumn – I don’t think we’ve met before.”
Royal:  “Autumn isn’t a girl – it’s a season – it’s harvest time!”
~ Playful black bear cubs – Autumn & Amber ~
Amber:  “Look Autumn – I bet it was those Raccoons who were calling your name”
Autumn:  “What do you think they want Amber?”
Amber:  “I bet they want to play a game with us!”
 Aubree, Rusty, Linnea & Royal
Aubree:    “Would you like to come to a harvest celebration with us - Annabelle, one of our neighbors, invited us – and she said we could bring a couple of our friends.”
Royal:    “That’s very thoughtful of you Aubree – but I don’t think we’d fit in.”
Aubree:    “You might dress a little different than some of our friends, but that doesn’t change who you are on the inside.”
Royal:    “Yes that’s true – but it’s a celebration for people – not raccoons.”
Linnea:    “No one would know that you’re a raccoon – if you dressed up in pioneer clothes – like you did when we first met.”
Royal:    “You’re right – I suppose we could!”
Aubree:    “You’ll come then?!”
Rusty:    “You can count us in!”
