A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Musical – “Climb Up the Mountain”

Violet on Mount Fraught

Violet and Quigley climb up the Mount Fraught’s frozen waterfall in a windswept valley proves with nothing but a candelabra and a few well-placed forks in their shoes. Not surprisingly, it proves to be a long and difficult. Though the forks work, Violet cautions Quigley not to celebrate too soon since they’re not back at the bottom yet. As they keep climbing, they discuss Isadora’s talent for couplets and marvel at the fact that so many people they’ve come in contact with are either involved with or know codes and have secret passageways in their houses. And how so many people were involved in an organization without any of the kids actually knowing about. Part way up the waterfall, they decide to take a break and eat some carrots.


The song I chose is “Climb Every Mountain” from the Sound of Music. In the original version the Mother Superior tells Maria to follow her heart and be with the man she loves who’s Captain Von Trapp. In this version, Violet and Quigley climb Mount Fraught in their long and difficult journey up the frozen waterfall.



“Climb Up the Mountain”

Sung by Violet Baudelaire and Quigley Quagmire

Climb up the mountain
Search high and low
Follow ev’ry by-way
Every path you know

Climb up the mountain
Scale up the height
With a candelabra hook
And forked shoes on ice

Quigley, take my hand
At the frozen waterfall
It’s so hard to climb
Like a slippery wall

Climb up the mountain
While Klaus decodes
Like so many people
In our lives we have known

Since my parents died
I have been so alone
My sibs are in the sky
But with you I shall go

Climb up the mountain
On the iced falls
Let’s sit and rest here
And take a break from it all
