Sample of script:

 

Mary & Jaimie come on stage, excited, pick up palm branch

 

Mary:              Isn't this exciting?

 

Jaimie:            He should be here any minute.

 

Tommy comes on stage, curious, watches Mary & Jaimie

 

Jaimie:            The crowds are starting to fill in, we are fortunate we got here early Mary.

 

Mary:              Well Jaimie, we were warned there would be a big turnout, it’s the talk of the town, the whole region actually.

 

Jaimie:            Seems everywhere he goes the crowds get larger and the excitement grows.

 

Mary:              Well Jaimie, the people are excited, but the authorities not so much, more like angry and upset with what he talks about.

 

Tommy:           Excuse me,  . . . mind me asking what you guys are doing?

 

Mary:              Waiting.

 

Jaimie:            He will be here soon.

 

Tommy:           Waiting for who exactly, and what’s with the tree branches?

 

Jaimie:            Everybody has heard of the marvelous things he has done.

 

Tommy:           Well, count me as out of the loop, I have no idea what you are talking about!

 

Mary:              Where have you been? . .  Surely you heard about what happened at Bethsaida.

 

Jaimie:            The huge crowd . . . and everyone was fed.

 

Mary:              And if that doesn’t convince you then surely you heard what happened at Bethany.

 

Tommy, laughs:         
Oh I get it! . . . A bunch of guys and I were joking about that last night.

 

Mary:              Joking? . .  Why would you joke about something like that? . . Thousands have seen what he can do.

 

Tommy:           Seriously? . .  People have been there and saw it first hand?

 

Mary:              Thousands.

 

Tommy:           You mean . .  credible people?

 

Mary:              Thousands of people could hardly be wrong.

 

Tommy:           Well . .  I guess . . .  maybe. . . .

 

Jaimie, looks downstage, excited:     
See, there the crowd is coming now! . . 

 

Mary, shouts:  You are the most blessed! . . .

 

Jaimie, loud:   And you bring blessing to our city and everyone within!

 

Tommy:           Wow, this is really something, listen do you have a spare tree branch for me?

 

Jaimie hands a palm branch to Tommy, who waves it vigorously
