Mosaicos- Chapter 4 Script

Scene1. Fade in: Vanesa walks into the kitchen sleepy and finds that Mariel, Yolanda and Federico are dancing salsa- music in the background- can change from salsa to tango... Federico takes Mariel into his arms to add a little touch of tango. Mariel explains:

Mariel: ¡Buenos Días Vanesa! ¡Estamos preparando un desayuno especial! (She pulls her into the kitchen affectionately)

Vanesa: ¿Preparando un desayuno? ¡Esto es una discoteca! (She says this laughing and is confused)

Federico: ¡Mariel baila muy bien!

Mariel: Me encanta bailar pero no salgo…

Yolanda: ¡Tenemos que buscarte a un compañero para bailar!

Vanesa: (She interrupts to clear up her confusión) ¿Pero por qué bailáis a esta hora?

Mariel: ¡Porque hoy es el 4 de julio, y es buena excusa para celebrar!

Federico: ¡Sí y buen día para comer, tengo hambre! (He sniffs the air and rubs his stomach- he is beginning to become famous for always wanting to eat)

Mariel: Les preparo huevos, beicon, fruta y jugo de naranja… Siéntense. (She gestures for them to sit down and puts the food on the table. (She is a little breathless from dancing but shining – she is fun-loving)

Yolanda: Mariel, ¿celebras esta fiesta con tu familia?

Mariel: ¡Claro que sí! ¡Pasamos todas las fiestas juntos! Hoy viene mi hijo con su esposa y mis nietos para una barbacoa típica. Ustedes van a estar aquí, ¿Verdad?

Vanessa y Yolanda: ¡Sí, queremos conocer a tu familia!

Mariel: Federico, como eres argentino y experto con la carne, me puedes ayudar con la barbacoa.

Mariel: Bueno chicos, pronto viene mi familia, voy a prepararme.
