BRUNDIBAR

Aninku and Pepicek read the invitation to Brundibar

"While mommy's sleeping, fetch it quick, milk is the best thing for the sick!"

"Milk, oh! Milk, oh! Milk, oh! Milk, oh! - Milk for kiddies, milk for mudders, milk for cats from Bessie's udders!"

"Little children how I hate 'em, how I wish the bedbugs ate 'em! How their parents overate 'em! If their rude exterminate 'em!"

"We are little... And too few. We need more than me and you."

"Mommy sings rockabye, baby when you are grown, you'll sing a lullabye and I'll be left alone."

"Trombone and kettle drum! The villain's overcome! Strum it on your guitar, Farewell to Brundibar!"

COMEDY ON THE BRIDGE

"I have a visa. Please let me through"

"Everyone down! Maybe they'll aim high over our heads!"
