THEN OF COURSE ENTER THE YOUNGEST OF THE MOUSETTES AND OUR HERO – BOBOLAN

I hope that poor, stuttering Bobolan’s entrance will encourage a brave Street Team to dream a Dragon In The Post project back into life one day too. But here we meet our heroic mouse, who so irritates his father by not being practical enough about real life, obsessed as he is with the theatre, although Bobolan never thinks he could be a real actor. Then he sings about his dreams too, as Moliere and co return and open the old theatre again: (Press the arrow below):

LYRICS – ‘DREAMS’

Dreams, we’re all made of dreams
Or so it seems.
Dreams, we’re all in a dream
What can dreams mean?
I dreamt last night
While I wandered the moon
That her snout was made of cheese.
And I dreamt the earth
As I dozed in my room
Was rich with kindness and ease.
Dreams, we’re just made of dreams
Or so it seems.
Dreams, we’re all in a dream
What can dreams mean?
I dreamt one day that I’d walk like a King
And climb on a marvellous throne
Then love a girl on a beautiful swing
With her I’m never alone.
Oh Dreams, we’re all made of dreams
Or so it seems.
Dreams, we’re all in a dream
What can dreams mean?

(Bobolan’s head almost explodes as he looks around the theatre)

Dreams, we’re all need our dreams
Like bright sunbeams.
Bright, that’s how you should dream
The brightest dream.
To take you far from the dark and fear
To a world where all is light
Where all our loves are so happy and near
And no one fears the night.
Dreams, that’s just what they seem
They’re bright sunbeams.
Dream a beautiful dream
That’s what I mean.
For nothing’s as bright as a dream
There’s nothing as bright as a dream…

(Return of Moliere’s Company to the old Paris theatre)
