Who are you?
Father Carlo: I’m your father
B: What’s my name?
Father Carlo: You will be… Buratino!
B: What’s this?
Father Carlo: This is a house, our house.
B: What’s that?
Father Carlo: This is a fireplace.
B: Is it real?
Father Carlo: No, it is just a picture.
B: What’s behind the picture?
Father Carlo: I don’t know, there is a door but I don’t have a key.
На следующее утро (после слов автора).
Father Carlo: It’s 7 o’clock, it’s time to go to school. Wake up! I give you money for breakfast, this is your book. Good -bye, my son!
B: Good -bye, Father!
Автор: On the way to school Buratino saw a theatre. He stopped to look at it.
Karabas Barabas: Welcome to our theatre! Come and buy tickets for the greatest show!
Куклы поют песню.
B: What’s this?
Пес: It is a theatre!
B: What are you doing here?
Все: We are dancing and singing!
Piero: We don’t like this theatre and Karabas! He is cruel and hits us. We want to run away!
Karabas: What a hell! Why you are not working, come to the performance, a lazy stupid puppet!
Буратино прячется за ширмой и подслушивает разговор Карабаса с другом.
Karabas: I am so miserable. My theatre is in ruin because of these lazy puppets!
Friend: I know what can help you. I hear that an old tortoise Tortila has a golden key from the secret door. If you open it, you will be very rich and famous.
Выходят Кот Базилио и Лиса Алиса (после слов автора).
Автор: Not far from the theatre.
Выходят Кот Базилио и Лиса Алиса.
Cat: I’m tired and hungry.
Fox: Don’t cry!
Cat: But we don’t have any money!
Fox: Let’s find it.

Мимо проходит Буратино.
Fox: Oh, look! It’s a child!
Cat: Come here, baby!
Fox: What’s your name?
Cat: Where are you going?
B: To the school!
Fox: What is in your bag? (показывает на деньги)
B: My father gave me a book and some money!
Cat: Money?! Oh, you may get in the trouble. But we will defend you!
Fox: Come with us. We will show where you can keep and increase your money in safe.
Кот Базилио и Лиса Алиса поют песню и помогают Буратино зарыть монеты на поле дураков.
Затем они уводят Буратино и приходят Мальвина, Пьеро и пёс Артемон. Буратино лежит на полу.
Пёс: Look! There is a boy!
Мальвина: He is sleeping! Wake up! What`s your name?
B: Buratino. (вяло)
Мальвина: Hello, Buratino! Why you are not at school? I’s time for the beginning of the lesson!
B: Oh, I hate lessons! I need to find the golden key. Go with me to the tortoise.
Автор: At this time Karabas and his friend came to the lake where the tortoise live.
Karabas: Good morning, Tortila!
T: Good morning! Who are you?

T: What do you want?
K.B.: The golden key!
T: Why do you want it?
K.B.: I want to be rich and famous!
T: Are you kind and honest?
K.B.: Yes, I am!
Буратино, Мальвина, Пёс, Пьеро: No, you are not!
Пьеро: Malvina cries all the day because of him!
Мальвина: He beats us!
Пёс: We don’t have any free time! We must work all the time!
Пьеро: We don’t want to work for him!
T: Poor puppets! I see that you are good and friendly. I will give you my golden key which opens the door to a wonderful new puppet theatre!
Мальвина: And where is the door?
Buratino: I know! It’s in my father’s house! He loves me, I miss him very much!
