Sample of script:

Naomi and Nathan are sitting in the TV studio

Nathan: Good evening viewers, this is . . . Newsy Nathan from Channel 12 . . with all the news that is news where you want the news and when the news is still news before it becomes old news!
I am here with my partner and co-anchor, Naomi. So Naomi, what have you got for us tonight?

Naomi: Good evening Nathan, welcome Channel 12 listeners, we have a jam-packed newscast tonight. . .
Before we get to the news highlights, viewers will recall that we reported a few days back that Lazarus of Bethany was grievously ill, and the family had sent for their friend, Jesus ben Joseph of Nazareth, a sometimes preacher who many feel has the power to heal severe illnesses. . .

Nathan: And did Jesus ben Joseph arrive in time?

Naomi: Yes and no. . . By the time Jesus arrived Lazarus had been dead for three days.

Nathan: Oh, too bad . .

Naomi: But, as the story goes, Jesus went to the tomb and raised the dead man to life.

Nathan, shock: Well . . . sounds like this story needs a bit more sifting through in the next few days . . .

Naomi: I agree Nathan. . . . meantime we hear that the mayor’s grand dinner party was a smashing success for those who were able to attend.

Nathan: I saw the pictures, sounded like a great time was had by all.

Naomi: Did you see the picture in the paper of Bev the Builder and Bart the Builder at the party?

Nathan: What were they doing there, I didn’t know they were invited.

Naomi: Well, they are in the studio, let’s ask them.

Bart and Bev come on stage
