I created and performed this a couple years back when I was at Cap21 for our "Forbidden Showcase" ... and I'm still quite proud. It is a tribute to my first love, the Harry Potter Series, using the melody/music from "Once Upon a Time" from the BROOKLYN the musical. See below for lyrics if you are so inclined ... They're quite good if I do say so myself.
Has anyone ever read you a fairytale?
And taken you to places... magical?
Where giants knock down cabin doors with birthday cake for YOU,
and say "You're a Wizard, Josie. This letter is for you."
Has anyone put a broomstick between your thighs?
You can fly above the school grounds... close your eyes.
Let the fireboat carry you, leave all your fears behind--
and fly above a Hogwarts sky to "Once Upon A Time"
*Once Upon a Time - I believed I'd be a Gryffindor.
*Once Upon a Time - I believed my own letter would arrive...
I believed in that envelope with emerald ink,
and I believed again the moment when I saw that platform here tonight.
Now once upon a time HAS NEVER FELT MORE RIGHT
***Whips out magic wand*** Casts spell on strange green doll****
(Once upon a time) I believed I'd be a GRYFFINDOR
(Once upon a time) I believed that Dumbledore would conquer all
I would be MRS. RONALD WEASLEY
OHHHHH ONCE UPON A TIME... ONCE UPON A TIME...
(She believed that Dumbledore would conquer all...)
OH YES. I believed that anything was possible,
and I believed again the moment when I saw this platform here tonight. **Gestures obviously to Platform 9 3/4 beneath**
Now Once Upon a Time Has Never Felt More .....
***Casts "Sonorus" Charm on self, magically I can sing quite high***
