At the beginning actors come from off stage or front row, (somewhere that takes VERY little time), wait at a location just outside range of spotlight.
Sample of script:
Harried Housewife comes into spot, talks offstage: Children, please play quietly (looks at watch, reacts, looks upward, folds hands) Our Father. .
Offstage voice of God: Yes, I’m listening
Housewife: Not now, can’t you see how busy I am?
Housewife turns, walks out of spot
Actor walks into spot, says: Who art in heaven . . .
God: But, I’m right here beside you, can’t you feel my closeness?
Actor takes a step back, says: I’m not really comfortable with closeness, no, heaven, that will be fine.
