The Vampire Dancer Saga, first movie SCRIPT Sneak Peak is here! Can Julianne Hough or Cheryl Burke (Dancing with the Stars) dance as good as Eleanor Powell?

The Vampire Dancer Saga FrontI’m so proud of the script for Chapter 4, Dancing with Flair at the Fair. The scriptwriter did an awesome job of capturing the right words for this movie scene.

Again with more Movie or TV Casting choices, who do you think is POWERFUL enough to dance like my favorite dancer of all time, Eleanor Powell???

Hmmm, would it be someone young and athletic like Julianne Hough? Or someone sultry and sensuous like Cheryl Burke?

Well, actually, if this movie ever comes to pass, I would go a totally different direction and pick the protégé of one of my other all-time favorite dancers. And you know who I am talking about: DEBBIE ALLEN!Julianne Hough2

I first noticed Debbie’s daughter, VIVIAN NIXON in the 1994 Academy Awards Oscar Best Song Presentation for the Circle of Life, The Lion King. Vivian is the real daughter of of the “spoofed” dancer Triple T Debs in Chapter 1:

“Places everyone. Quiet please,” shouted host Bom Tergeron. With that, the judges, KarAnna, Blen & Runo from DWSDS and Ligel Nitchgow & Murph Mare from SYTYCV with special guest judge Triple T Debs took their places at the Judges Table.

JULIANNE HOUGH as Elly Powers: Too busy, has too much work, will probably turn it down. Shame, she could do the acrobatics and tap dancing like Eleanor Powell and make it believable.

Cheryl Burke2CHERYL BURKE as Elly Powers: Prolly under contract with ABC for Dancing with the Stars. Has not done movies yet, not sure if she would be interested if this really happens. Cheryl is the most POWERFUL female dancer on Dancing with the Stars, and would totally believable in the role

VIVIAN NIXON as Elly Powers: Vivian is extremely talented and it would be a coup to have Debbie direct Vivian to play Elly Powers in this movie. Vivian would blow the tap dance scenes away!

Uncle Sunny, is actually my real uncle. But he does not dance. Even so, it would be great to have a Tap Dancer to master Bill “Bojangles” Robinson for this role. Especially since Eleanor Powell portrayed Bill Robinson in the movie Honolulu. The best actor to play my uncle, who can tap like Bill Eleanor PowellRobinson is MAURICE HINES.

And to play the kooky fortune teller MADAME ZANDRA, I would cast none other than the delightful Kathy Najimy!  She is one of my favorite actresses of all time.  I love all of her movie and TV works.

SCRIPT COPYRIGHT 2012 SHALIMAR ALIBill Bojangles

Setting: On a train in the 1930’s. Two women are standing in the aisle in the dining car practicing dance steps. When it becomes apparent that the younger of the two has mastered it they sit at a table in a mostly deserted dining car late at night. They are eating pie and drinking coffee.

ELLY

So your parents are Big Daddy Baker and . . .

ALYCE

Caroline Braden.

ELLY

Maurice HinesAnd you spend your free time riding the train with your uncle.

ALYCE

Just until he finishes seminary school. Then he won’t be a porter anymore.

ELLY

Riding the train sounds like a pretty adventurous existence.

ALYCE

It is. We’re going to make a stop in Chicago to see the World’s Fair.

ELLYVivian Nixon

I thought about doing that myself.

ALYCE

Oh, won’t that make you late to begin filming?

ELLY

I’ve got time. I really want to see Little Egypt.

ALYCE

VivianNixon5Me too. I hear she’s completely scandalous.

ELLY

I certainly hope so!

The two women laugh.

ELLY cont.

We should go together.VivianNixon3

ALYCE

Really?

ELLY

Yeah.

The scene fades into a montage of the two women getting off the train in Chicago in the daylight. We see them talking and laughing as they walk down the sidewalk, riding the street car and arriving at the World’s Fair. ALYCE looks all around, taking in everything. They stop to watch a fortune teller at work.

Kathy NajimyMADAME ZANDRA

You’re curious. That’s natural. Why don’t you sit down?

ELLY stops ALYCE from sitting.

ELLY

Hold on there, lady. . . . How much?

MADAME ZANDRA

Only a dollar.

ALYCEVivianNixon4

A whole dollar?!

ELLY

Didn’t anybody tell you there’s a depression going on?

MADAME ZANDRA

I’m worth every penny and more. Take it or leave it.

ALYCE looks to ELLY who shrugs.

ELLY

It’s up to you kid. It’s your dime.

VivianNixon1ALYCE considers it for a moment, then sits and hands MADAME ZANDRA a dollar from her change purse.

ALYCE

This better be good.

MADAME ZANDRA

Taking ALYCE’s palms.

You have a very special gift, a very special power . . . to be activated on your 21st birthday. I also see a great-granddaughter, 60 years from now, will also be dancing in Chicago. She will dance like the Egyptians.

ALYCE and ELLY glance at each other. ELLY rolls her eyes and ALYCE smiles.

ALYCE

Rising.

Thank you Madame Zandra, that was very . . . entertaining.

As they walk away.

Cheryl BurkeELLY

Did you buy any of that?

ALYCE

Apparently I did. And I paid a whole dollar for it.

ELLY

Come on, kid. Let’s go see the “Egyptians.” When is your 21st birthday, anyway?

ALYCE

Tomorrow.

Julianne HoughELLY imitates spooky music and they laugh as they walk off arm in arm.

ALYCE and ELLY enter the area where Little Egypt will be dancing. The place is already packed. They find seats and the show begins. During the course of the show audience members may “Oooo” and “Ahhh”. They express their shock and surprise. ALYCE and ELLY are both captivated, but for ALYCE it seems for a moment that the lights are flickering and then dimming. When they come up she is still watching the “Egyptian” dance but it is someone else entirely on the stage, someone who looks a bit like her. She hears a soft buzzing sound next to her and sees a man look into a small hand-held device. When ALYCE returns to herself, everyone is leaving and ELLY is looking at her with concern.

Eleanor Powell2ELLY

Are you okay? You look really pale.

ALYCE runs her tongue over her teeth and then opens her lips to reveal fangs.

ELLY grins.

Vampire?

ALYCE

Yes. Meet me in St. Louis.

The Vampire Dancer Saga back coverAs you all know, ELEANOR POWELL is the absolute best dancer that ever lived! There is not a dancer today that can match her power, stamina and the girl power of topping the box office for dance. It would be IMPOSSIBLE to match any dancer today with Eleanor Powell. The dancers on Dancing with the Stars have it so easy because they do PARTNER DANCES. By comparison, Eleanor Powell commanded the box office with SOLO DANCING. I am a dancer and if you are a dancer you know that it is harder to SOLO than dance PARTNER. Why? A solo dancer must COMMAND that stage with stage presence and stage work. A partner can dance can actually divide the dance duties in half with team work. A lot of dancers will disagree with that statement, but then again ask yourself why, there are not that many solo dances on Dancing with the Stars or So You Think You can Dance???
