Ticket into Heaven

  • Cast Number: 2
  • Run-time: 4 minutes
  • Bible Reference: John 14:6
With St. Peter guarding the Pearly Gates a newcomer finds that it isn't works alone that are going to get you entrance. This comedy is a quick attention grabber with a great message.

Set:
Two chairs or sign at center stage to represent Pearly Gates into heaven
Costumes:
Gatekeeper can be in toga or robe. Or perhaps a doorman outfit.
Pilgrim in street clothes

Props: A basket or bag of six or eight pencil balloons, multicolors, one of them red. All of the balloons have “good deeds” on them. The Red has “Repent of your sins and trust in Jesus”
A pin or thumbtack taped to finger for secretly popping balloons

Based on a balloon routine by Ralph Dewey, who uses himself as narrator and all characters are volunteers. St Peter/Gatekeeper is a coached volunteer with a pin ring for secretly popping balloons.For our skit version, one of us plays St Peter /Gatekeeper and the other a pilgrim trying to get into heaven.

Sample of script:

St. Peter, to audience: Hi, I’m the gatekeeper (I’m St. Peter). It’s my job to control who gets into heaven. It’s really quite simple, but it’s amazing how many people just don’t get it.

Person enters, carrying bag of balloons

St Peter: Here comes someone now. Hello, what can I do for you?

Person: Wow! Is this the Pearly Gate? It is really something!

St. Peter: You should see the Main Gates.

Person: This isn’t the main gate?

St Peter: Oh, no. Those are only used for special arrivals. I recall that Mother Teresa was the last one. Or was it Robert Miller?

Person: Robert Miller, I never heard of him.

St Peter: Nobody else did either. At least on Earth. But the boss saw the quality of his soul and so we opened the main gate. So, again, what can I do for you?
