Sample of script:           

 

Bradley comes onstage, sits at desk at Upstage center, quietly reading through some papers

 

Alex, Bobbi, Kelsey & Spencer enter, come to downstage right, talking rapid fire

 

Spencer:          Well, thing is Bradley said we have to slow down, think this thing through, look at all sides before jumping into this deal.

 

Kelsey:            What are you saying Spencer, slow down is not an option in my life, I have a million things on the go and there’s like zero chance I can waste time chewing through this thing.

 

Alex:               I’m with you Kelsey, time is money and time is something I simply don’t have!

 

Bobbi:             Where is Bradley coming from on this? I mean what gives him the right to drag his heels on this?

 

Spencer:          Well Bobbi, I guess the fact that he is the boss might give him some rights, but still I’m with you guys on this! . . . Us guys in Team Green need to push forward ‘cause we all know that Team Red won’t be sitting back! . . . And shhhh! Keep your voices down, here comes Team Red now!

 

Team Green freezes

Dallas, Hudson, Reed & Mackenzie enter, come to downstage left, talking rapid fire

 

Dallas:             Way I look at it if we just push really hard on the new ideas and spend every minute on introducing those real quick.

 

Hudson:          Well, Dallas, I am with you on the need to push hard, but we can’t just bail out on the old tried and true either. . . . Face it, that’s what brought us to where we are at. I think we need to amp up our efforts on the core components in our offering!

 

Reed:               Hold on there Hudson, you too Dallas! . . . We are like going nowhere if we take our foot off the accelerator on either of those! . . . I say we push both to the Max!

 

Mackenzie:      Reed, you are dreaming big time! . . . We have limited resources, limited talents, limited time! . . . Face it, we can’t be all things and we can’t overplay it or we lose it all!

 

Chet comes on stage

 

Hudson:          Look guys, this is getting us nowhere fast! . . . What we need to do is . . .

 

Chet:                Hidey ho pilgrims! How’s life in your guy’s world?

 

Spencer:          Chet, can’t you see that we in Team Green are busy?

 

Reed:               Yes Chet, and we in Team Red are not only busy but highly productive!

 

Alex:               Highly productive you say Reed? . . . The closest to productive you guys in Team Red have ever come is reading about the advances us guys in Team Green have achieved!

 

Mackenzie:      You Red people can for sure talk the talk, too bad you can’t walk the walk!

 

Chet:                You guys in Team Red can’t walk? . . . Wow, that is for sure sad, maybe if you were to get little wheels on your shoes and just kinda like glide out, one foot after the other you would . . .

 

Dallas:             No Chet! . . .  Mackenzie was just hyperbolizing . . .

 

Chet:                Sorry about that Mackenzie, that sounds real painful!

 

Bobbie:            Chet! . . .  Hyperbolizing means when you . . .

 

Chet, points offstage:  
Oh look, a squirrel!

 

Kelsey:            Chet do you know how . .  how . . frustrating you are?

 

Chet, thinks:    How, how, frustrating you are? . . . Let’s see . . country and western song right? . .
(clears throat, sings badly off key)
How, how frustrating you are.
When I saw you from afar
Up in the sky was a star
That was . . .

 

All:                  Chet! . . .

 

Chet:    Love my singing doncha? . .  Move over Johnny Cash!
