Creature from the Black Lagoon: An Opera

29 Apr

NOTE: THIS OPERA IS A WORK-IN-PROGRESS.  IF ANYONE WITH ENHANCEMENT MONEY IS INTERESTED WE WOULD BE MORE THAN DELIGHTED TO CHANGE SONGS, CHARACTERS, TONE OR PLOT! SERIOUSLY.

ACT ONE: Melinda and Joe are out boating on a lovely afternoon.  They sing the duet On a Beautiful Day Like Today with Two People So In Love, What Harm Could Befall Us?  Their song is interrupted by a mysterious sound like a toilet overflowing with a thousand bubbles, as a huge chunk of liver thuds against the deck.  Not bothering to investigate further Joe rushes off to find a weapon. Melinda, not wanting to be left alone, stops him.  They sing counter point arias.  Melinda: Don’t Go Anywhere, Just Stay Here.  Joe : You’re Not the Boss of Me.

Moments later Melinda screams the haunting Screams, thus heralding the appearance of our title character, Creature.  The dripping monster advances toward her, grunting the inhuman Im from the Black Lagoon and You’re Doomed.

Melinda puts up the fight of her life (feeble kicks with an occasional attempt to scratch his hideous scaly face).  Monster and maiden intertwine songs with surprisingly poignant riffs.  Melinda: Back to Hell, You Green Demon and Creature: It’s Cold and Loney in the Hell I Call Home. Overpowered by the Creature, Melinda plunges with it into the black water.

Joe charges on with a tire iron (or whatever they might have on a small boat that could be used as weapon), as the Creature and his Beauty disappear into the inky depths.  Joe stares at the remaining bubbles and sings  I’ve Lost My Love to an Evil Amphibian.

ACT TWO: TBD, as soon as we get that enhancement money.  Hint, hint.

    Although this one doesn’t have a picture, I can picture it. Hilarious! You are so good at the fake musicals/operas.
