"76 Trombones in the Big Parade!"

      "76 Trombones in the Big Parade!"

[Crowd gathers on main street. Children gleeful as they anticipate the coming of the town parade. Women sporting sun-dresses & new bonnets spread out sitting mats. Men place wagers on floats winning awards.]

Drum Major: Yes, yes. I know it is all for show. ... It's a parade? ... If you just want to order something, see your Sears Catalog ®. ... Ehhh? ... Can't hear you... The trombones... Hand signals?

[Run along side of the marching band. Gesture a man racking a dog on the roof of a parked car; band continues marching down Main Street.]

Drum Major: Dog on roof? ... Glove? ... Mitt?! ... He's not in the Sears Catalog yet. ... Maybe as it gets closer to Christmas... [Band turns corner & marches out of sight; 76 Trombones gleefully blast onward toward City Hall with Drum Major in lead.]
