Sample of script
Person: Susie? Where are you? (She is holding some cards with questions on them to interview the puppet)
Susie: (enters) Hi! (She suddenly sees the audience and her mouth drops open & she stares in fright) WHO ARE ALL THESE BIG PEOPLES?
Person: They’re our guests, Susie. They are here for (church or whatever occasion you like) .
Susie: Oh………… Why?
Person: Well, it’s a time for the people in our denomination to get together to ( whatever fits)
Susie: I gots a denomination. See! (She pulls out a dollar bill)
Person: No, Susie, not that kind of denomination. The (Southern Baptist) denomination.
Susie: Whs’sat? Is it bigger than a 10 dollar bill? I once gotta 10 dollar bill from my uncle.
Person: Let’s leave your uncle out of this. He’s …
Susie: (Interrupting) WHATS those cards for?
Person: They’re just some questions I want to ask you.
Susie: (Panics) QUESTIONS?!?!?!? Is this a TEST? I didn’t know I was takin’ a test!!!! I didn’t study! I dunno the answers! I don’t even know the questions! I thought school was out!!!!!!
Person: Susie, calm down! It’s okay, you know this subject. We study about it every Sunday in Sunday School. It’s about God.
Susie: Ohhhhhhhhhh. Okay. I know lots about God. Fire away!
Person: Okay, can you tell us what the first commandment was?
Susie: That’s easy! The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat that apple.
Person: Yes, well …… I think we’d better try something different. How about the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. What do you know about that?
Susie: I know ‘bout Lot! He had a wife! She was a pillar of salt by day an’ a ball o’ fire by night!
Person: A ball of fi…. ah, Susie, I think we’d better go back a bit. Just what have you learned about God?
Susie: He’s the Creator of the world, an’ the stars, an’ the peoples, an’ the animals, an’ the merry-go-rounds, an’…
Person: Merry-go-rounds, Susie?
Susie: Sure! An’ I really likes ‘em too. ‘Cept when I just had a hot dog, then I throw up!
Person: Okaaay. Well, what else does God do, since He’s through creating the world?
Susie: Wellllll, one of God’s main jobs is makin’ peoples. He makes ‘em to replace the ones that die, so there’ll be enough people to take care of things on earth.
Person: You mean like He made Adam and Eve?
Susie: (giggling) Naaahhh, silly! He don’t make grown up peoples…..just BABIES! That’s ‘cause they’re smaller an’ easier to make. That way, He doesn’t have to take up His val-loo-able time teahcin’ ‘em to talk an’ walk. He leaves that to the mommies an’ daddies.
