Act I Scene Two:
Narrator: We are now at the ranch of Mick Russell. His ranch is not far from the city of Roswell. It is 5 AM and Mick is suddenly stirred from a sound sleep by the unsettling noise created by his animals.
Mick: Those damn animals! It’s too early for them to be up. I better get up and check out what all the commotion is all about.
Narrator: Mick quickly puts on his jeans and a T-shirt and walks down the hall on his way to his son’s bedroom.
Mick: Rob, Get up! The animals are all freaking out about something.
Rob: Ah come on Dad. I was up until three in the morning partying with my friends.
Mick: That’s tough. Put on your clothes and come help your dad.
Narrator: As soon as Mick and Rob walk about 100 yards out into the field they find out what rattled the animals.
Rob: All right I’m coming. Don’t get your shirt in a knot.
Mick: What the heck? Look at all those shiny pieces of metal.
Rob: Yeah, there must be hundreds of jagged pieces. The glare reflecting off the sun is almost blinding.
Mick: Where do you think all this metal came from?
Rob: It looks like something very large crashed here last night.
Mick: It’s that damned Air Force Base. They’re always testing some top-secret stuff over there.
Narrator: Rob picks up a few of the metal pieces and starts to examine them.
Rob: This stuff is weird Dad. It’s giving me the creeps. Its so flexible it’s unreal. Look Dad, I can roll a piece of this metal up until until it’s a ball and it straightens itself right out again.
Narrator: Mick moves closer to Rob to get a closer look.
Mick: Look at the strange markings on this piece.
Rob It looks like Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Mick: You”re talking way over my head son. I only went up to grade 8. Don’t worry though. Let’s put some of this stuff in a bag. I’ll take it to the sheriff tomorrow morning and see what he makes of it but you can be sure I’m also going to ask him who’s going to clean up this mess on my ranch.
Rob: I forgot to tell you Dad. Last night we were sitting outside
Dwight’s place drinking beer when we saw this amazing flash of bright orange light in the sky. Then kaboom! We heard this deafening crash.
Nick: What you guys probably heard and saw was the light show from the Pink Floyd concert. They were playing in Albuquerque last night.
Rob: Dad this is 1947! Rock ‘n roll hasn’t even been invented yet.
Mick: Oh yeah, you’re right.
