´╗┐Miss Martel is in her forties, with long red hair and wears a striped red shirt and a blue headband.

She says HELLO EVERYBODY!
AT BIG TOP ACADEMY WE PRIZE
INNOVATIVE STUDENTS WHO COME UP
WITH INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCES.
ALWAYS AFTER MONTHS OF
SUPERVISED TRAINING WITH
TEACHERS LIKE ME.
SO KIDS GET INSPIRED BY THEIR
SKILLS AND CREATIVITY BUT BE
SAFE.
DON'T TRY ANY OF THIS WITHOUT
PROPER CIRCUS COACHING.
ENJOY THE SHOW!

Chase is around 11, with curly brown hair and wears jeans, a blue shirt, printed blue tie and gray blazer.

Chase says HI, I'M CHASE AND THIS IS MY
PERFORMANCE IN THE MIDTERM
SHOWCASE.

The Big Top Academy logo appears with the caption "Big top performance."

Chase says I WAS THE OCEAN SPIRIT.
MAYBE THE BEST PART IN THE WHOLE
SHOW.
AND I HAD AN AWESOME
TRIDENT THAT NOBODY COULD STEAL.
WELL, UNTIL SOMEONE DID...
BUT THE BEST PART OF IT IS MY
MOM WAS COMING TO WATCH ME
PERFORM.
BUT WHAT WASN'T AWESOME WAS I
LEARNED THAT MY MOM WASN'T
COMING TO WATCH ME.
SO I WAS SO SAD I JUST DECIDED
TO HIDE AND THEN NICOLAS FOUND
ME AND REMINDED ME THAT CIRCUS
SCHOOL IS WHERE I'M MEANT TO BE
AND THAT IT WAS MY CHANCE TO
SHINE.
SO THIS IS MY PERFORMANCE AS THE
OCEAN SPIRIT.

Backstage, Miss Martel says OH CHASE.
YOU'RE HERE.
QUICK, GET OUT THERE.

Nicholas narrates and says CAPTAIN BLACKHEART HAD WHAT SHE
CAME FOR BUT THE OCEAN SPIRIT
BEGAN TO ROAR.

Chase says ROAR.

The artists start drumming on clear half-spheres and simulating fights.

Nicholas says THE CREW FOUGHT WITH THEIR HEART
AND SOUL BUT THE BATTLE WITH THE
OCEAN SPIRIT WAS TAKING ITS
TOLL.

April sings AND I WONDER HOW IT WILL BE.
WILL THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT,
WILL IT GLOW?
SHOULD I BE SCARED?
HOW WILL I KNOW?
I WONDER IF MY WISH CAME
THROUGH.
I WONDER IF IT'S TRUE.
THIS HEART OF MINE IS BEATING
SO FAST.
I HAVE TO ASK.
AM I UP TO THE TASK?
AND I WILL SEE WITH BOTH OF MY
EYES.
WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE.
DREAMING HIGH IN THE SKY.

April sticks her trident in the floor.

Nicholas says HER BLACK HEART DISSOLVED, OUR
CAPTAIN'S HEART HAD EVOLVED.
IT SHIMMERED RED AND BRIGHT
SPREADING GOODNESS LIKE
SUNLIGHT

They sing a song that says WHOA
WHOA
RED HEARTS KEEP BEATING
BECAUSE THEY CAN'T BE BROKEN,
HEY.
THEY'RE HEARTS SO FULL OF
LOVE, DREAMING OF CHANGING THE
WORLD
BUT YOUR HEART IS GROWING
STRONG, THAT AIN'T EVER WRONG.
WHENEVER AND WHEREVER, THIS
LOVE IS REAL FOREVER.
DON'T LOSE YOURSELF
ALONG THE WAY.
YOU WERE BORN
TO SHINE, BORN TO STAY.
YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DON'T
MATTER, FEELING LIKE A GHOST.
I'M YOUR MIRROR, I CAN SEE
YOU, YOU'RE THE ONE I LOVE THE
MOST.
I KNOW THAT IT'S SO
DIFFICULT, BECAUSE YOU'RE PURE
AT HEART.
BUT THIS HEART OF YOURS, IS SO
FULL OF FIRE.
WITH THIS HEART OF MINE,
THIS HEART OF MINE.
THAT GROWS AND GROWS WITH
LOVE.
WITH THIS HEART OF
MINE, THIS RED HEART OF MINE.
THAT GOES TOWARDS THE SUN.
MY RED HEART, WOAH.
DON'T LET YOURSELF BE
TRAPPED.
MY RED HEART, WOAH.
BY ALL THESE HEARTS, THAT
CAN'T LOVE YOU BACK.
MY RED HEART, WOAH.
MY RED HEART, WOAH.
BY ALL THESE HEARTS, THAT
CAN'T LOVE YOU BACK.

Nicholas and Chase high-five.

The artists take a bow.

(CHEERING AND CLAPPING)

Chase says OH AND A BIT OF ADVICE.
IF YOU HAVE AN AWESOME TRIDENT
DON'T JUST LEAVE IT LYING
AROUND.
THANKS FOR WATCHING.
