Ceremony

Herald: All hail Ticheba, our queen!

The queen descends from above as all assembled bow.

Ticheba: You may rise.

Ticheba strikes an invisible gong.

Ticheba:

This Universal Coven I do convene.
Its purpose, you know, to crown a queen,
To rule all witchdom from this point hence.
If all be present, let the oath-taking commence.

Ticheba strikes the gong again.

Samantha processes in with two witches holding her train. Endora follows. All assembled bow as she passes. She ascends to the rock where Ticheba stands.

Ticheba:

Samantha gentle, Samantha fair,
Before your peers assembled here,
Are you ready now to take,
The oath of office of which I spake?

Samantha: I am.

Ticheba:

Let the bearers of the Book of Rites draw near,
And as I read, let all give ear.
These words I read, say after me,
And weigh each one most carefully.

Ticheba:

I, Samantha, do solemnly swear,
In accepting the crown to hold it dear.

Samantha:

I, Samantha, do solemnly swear,
In accepting the crown to hold it dear.

Ticheba:

To be faithful and never to forsake,
The holy office which I take.

Samantha:

To be faithful and never to forsake,
The holy office which I take.

Ticheba:

To preserve, protect and to defend,
The laws of witchdom to the end.

Samantha:

To preserve, protect and to defend,
The laws of witchdom to the end.

Samantha adds. . .

But only after midnight, please.
You see, I promised my husband and he'd flip his lid,
I'm trying to rhyme so please do as I bid.

The crown disappears from Ticheba and appears on Samantha. Ticheba gives the scepter to her.

Ticheba: Long live Queen Samantha!

Endora and the others join in.

Long live Queen Samantha!
Long live Queen Samantha!

Samantha looks at Endora and they smile at each other.
