Day 1: Noah’s Obedience

 

Terry, Flash and Georgie are offstage outside the room, their voices are heard inside

 

Terry:              I have no idea where we are. . .  

 

Georgie:           Well I do know where we are . . . we are lost that’s where!

 

Flash:              No idea how that happened.

 

Terry:              You have no idea? . . . You were the one who said you knew how to get to (name of church).

 

Flash:              Yes I did say that .. .  and yes I did know how to get there . . . But I didn’t know you wanted me to lead you guys.

 

Georgie:           Then why did you say, “Follow me, I know where I am going!”

 

Flash:              I say that a lot, but that doesn’t mean you should like follow me.

 

Georgie:           What’s with all the huge banana peels all over?

 

Flash:              Can you just imagine the size of the monkey?

 

Terry:              What monkey are you talking about Flash?

 

Flash:              The monkey that peeled and ate that banana.

 

Terry:              Flash, these are graphics.

 

Flash:              Graphics?

 

Terry:              Pictures of banana peels.

 

Flash:              Pictures?

 

Terry:              They are not real bananas Flash.

 

Flash:              Well not now, but before the monkey ate the banana it was real.

 

actors enter from the back of the room, looking lost

 

Georgie:           Looks like there’s something up ahead.

 

Flash:              Look there’s a whole bunch of kids in here.

 

Terry:              And there’s a sign, it says “WISH” . . . . I wonder what that means?

 

Flash:              Well all the kids and that WISH sign must mean we are at Disneyland.

 

Georgie:           Why would a group of kids and a “WISH” sign mean we are in Disneyland?

 

Flash:              Well kids go to Disneyland, and I always say I wish I could go to Disneyland. . . I guess it has finally happened. . . . Welcome to Disneyland Terry and Georgie!

 

Terry:              Now you are just being silly Flash! . . . You know very well that Disneyland is in California and we are in (name of province or state).

 

Flash:              My bad Terry, you are right. . . . But that humongous monkey must be hiding somewhere close around.

 

Georgie:           Where do you see the monkey?

 

Flash:              How am I supposed to see the monkey?  . . .  Like I say, the monkey is hiding.

 

Terry:              I know I shouldn’t ask this Flash, but how do you know there is a monkey hiding?

 

actors come on stage

 

Flash:              You guys don’t look around much do you? . . .  Maybe see that gynormous banana tree up here on the stage? . . .
(Flash touches the first banana)
You just watch . .  that humongous monkey will pounce out and chomp up one of these huge bananas any minute now!

 

Terry, taps on the banana:     
No monkey will be eating this banana, seems like it’s made of wood.

 

Flash:              Maybe the humongous monkey is a woodetarian.

 

Terry:              A woodetarian? . .  What is a woodetarian?

 

Flash:              A woodetarian is like a vegetarian only they eat wood, not vegetables.

 

SS comes on stage, watches the actors

 

Georgie:           I wonder what this “WELCOME TO WISH” sign means?

 

SS:                   That sign means . . .Welcome to W-I-S-H.
And to welcome you to W-I-S-H . . . here is . . .  Rah and Rahrah!

 

Terry, confused:          
Rah and Rahrah?

 

SS:                   Yup, Rah and Rahrah.

 

Rah and Rahrah come on stage rapping

 

R & R:             Doncha wish that you could be
A super singer just like me
A super singer who can sing
All the songs that make you swing
All the songs that make us proud
To be so cute, well dressed and loud.

 

following lines are sung quickly together as though a single line, and immediately into the next line

 

Rah:                 I am Rah

 

Rahrah:           Rahrah is me

 

R & R:             I am the best you’ll ever see.
I am famous, I am funny
And I make a bunch of money
Here we go . .

 

R & R move upstage still rapping

 

R & R:             Rah . .  Rah . . Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah!
Rah . .  Rah . . Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah!

 

Rah and Rahrah strike celebrity pose

 

Georgie, shock:           
What was . . .  that,  . . . exactly?

 

SS, proud:       That was our very own W-I-S-H greeters, Rah and Rahrah! . . .  Doncha just love them?

 

Terry:              Well, they are . . .  (thinks) . .  different . . . for sure.

 

SS, proud:       We pride ourselves at being different here at W-I-S-H.

 

Georgie:           Wish?

 

SS:                   The World Institute for Super Heroes!

 

Flash:              Wow! . . . I always wanted to visit the World Institute for Super Heroes, haven’t you Terry?

 

Terry:              Actually Flash, I have never even heard of the World Institute for Super Heroes.
