Sample of script:
Sketch 1: Be holy
There is a loud “whooshing” noise offstage
Alvin and Allan come on stage from opposite sides, backing on stage, looking around carefully, bump into each other, react with fear
Allan: Who . . who . . are . . you?
Alvin: Be kind, I am a visitor here!
Allan: You sure dress different . . are you from Atlanta (or some town in the area)?
Alvin: Atlanta? . . Where’s that? I am from Flinder-gleegen-regan.
Allan: Just as I suspected . . outta state.
Alvin: No state, I am from the royal monarchy of Flinder-gleegen-regan.
Allan: I see, Europe.
Alvin: What’s this, Europe?
Allan: Across the ocean, thousands of miles away.
Alvin, annoyed: I am from the planet of Flinder-gleegen-regan, three billion light years away.
Allan, wide-eyed: You mean . . (points upward) . . . .
Alvin: Take a left at Saturn, sharp right at Neptune, cruise on in to Flinder-gleegen-regan.
Allan: You mean there’s life out there?
Alvin: Oh my yes, you must drop by and visit some day.
Allan: What made you decide to come to earth?
Alvin: Our listening devices on Flinder-gleegen-regan picked up these strange sounds coming from this building.
Allan: Oh that would likely be our Worship Pastor, Pastor Tom and his music.
Alvin: A strange but not entirely unpleasant beat. . . What do you do in this building?
Allan: It is our church.
Alvin: Church? . . What is church?
Allan: It is where we come to praise God and learn more about him.
Alvin: And God would be?
Allan: God created everything, heaven and earth and skies and all that exists.
Alvin: You are telling me that this God created everything?
Alvin: So you are saying this God created Flinder-gleegen-regan?
Allan: Well, fact is I never heard of Flinder-gleegen-regan until now, but if it’s out there then obviously God created it.
Alvin: Wow! . . Just wait ‘til King Woonga hears about this!
Allan: King Woonga?
Alvin: Our illustrious leader on Flinder-gleegen-regan. . . I want you to tell King Woonga all about this God of yours. King Woonga, he has been real puzzled over who created the universe.
Allan: And this . . King Woonga . . is coming here to Streetsville?
Alvin: Sure is, his space ship is due here in, (looks at watch), . . seven hundred years.
Allan: Seven hundred years! . . Well none of us will be here by then.
Alvin: You plan on going somewhere soon?
Allan: Seven hundred years is many generations.
Alvin: Many generations? . . (checks watch again) . . . Just six hundred and eighty-three years now.
Allan: My guess is your years and ours are not the same.
Alvin: Seven hundred years is like forty sleeps. . . But tell me more about this God of yours.
Allan: Well God is holy.
Alvin: And holy is . . ?
Allan: Well, kinda hard to describe, but . . . perfect, worthy of honour and without sin. . .
Allan: Doing wrong things.
Alvin: So you and this God of yours never do wrong things?
Allan: Well God is perfect, but we are human, and unfortunately we do sin. . . But because we have chosen to follow God and his son Jesus, we are called to be holy.
Alvin: God has a son?
Allan: Yes, God’s son Jesus came to earth to die for our sins, and so we who have chosen to follow him can be holy through Jesus.
Alvin: Wow, so everyone on earth has chosen to follow Jesus and so all you guys are holy huh?
Allan: Unfortunately no. Not all have chosen to follow Jesus.
Alvin: And the reason for that would be. . .?
Allan: Pride. . . self-centeredness . . . rebellion . .
Alvin: We’ve got lots of that in Flinder-gleegen-regan too. . . But no one has told us about God and his son Jesus. . . Maybe you can come to Flinder-gleegen-regan and tell us about God?
Allan: Well we do have a very active missions and outreach ministry here at Grace Fellowship. . . We can check with Pastor Jean . . .
Alvin: And Pastor Jean would be . . .?
Allan: Pastor Jean is Associate Pastor for Missions and Outreach here at Grace Fellowship, and she is simply on fire to bring people to the Lord.
Alvin: Well I do know King Woonga will want to take Pastor Jean back to Flinder-gleegen-regan in his personal space ship.
