Missions Local

  • Cast Number: 3
  • Run-time: 4 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Matthew 24:14
Mission fields may be half way around the world, (which is scary), or perhaps next door, (now that’s maybe even more scary), or even where you work, (now that’s just plain flat out bloodcurdling terrifying!) This comedy speaks of the workplace mission field and how important that is. Easily staged, no set, props or special effects.

Sample of script:

Jim laughs uproariously, Martha looks at Jim very confused

Jim: Ya get it? . . . Isn’t that a knee-slapper joke?

Martha, very confused, but trying to humor Jim, shakes head negative, says: Yeaaaaahhh, Jim, . . . . right . . . a real . . . knee-slapper . . right.

Jim: Just no . . . . body tells a joke like ol’ Jimbo here does, I tell ya!

Martha: I do have to say Jim, that everyone who knows you would agree that you do tell jokes different from normal folks alright. For a fact.

Jim: Hey, Martha, quit talkin’ ol’ Jimbo up, will ya? Next thing ya know ol’ Jimbo’s gonna have one swelled head, with all the compliments about my superior joke tellin’ and all!

Martha: I can guarantee you Jim, you won’t live long enough to get compliments about the way you tell jokes.

Jim: Aww, shucks, just so nice to hear that you like my jokes and . . .
