Duel of Faiths [Drama about community being the main attraction of church]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - December  7, 2019

(Quite, country background sounds play, soft church bell ringing.)

Good sets up a church, left side of stage (could be a small cardboard cutout)
Innocent walks on stage looking around as if wondering where they should go.
Good invites Innocent over to church. Innocent is weary but starts to move that way...

(Dramatic choir music begins [edited version of Duel of Fates])
Door opens, revealing a smokey scene.
Innocent and Good both look over curiously

(Second hit of choir singing seconds later)
Strobe light flashes in back room too

(Choir stops, orchestra starts)
Evil walks in a few paces, black attire. Cape?
Looks around audience a little, then locks gaze onto Innocent, who is just staring

(Choir starts again)
Good holds a medium size Magnet up, showing labels:
  • Music (top)
  • Bible study (bottom)

Pulls in Innocent a little

Who's Leaving, What's Staying... [skit to anounce a departing leader from a club]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - November  23, 2019

Abbott: Well, it's that time of year where some new leaders will be joining our club, some leaders are staying, and sadly other leaders are leaving.

Costello: Hey, have you got a list of what each leader is doing?

Abbott: I certainly do.

Costello: Well, let's hear it, I really want to know which leaders are leaving so we can give them a gift.

Abbott: OK, I’ll tell you their names, but you need to know some of our leaders have some strange pet names, so let’s see:
[read slowly] Who’s leaving, What’s staying, and I Don’t Know is joining.

Costello: That’s what I want to find out.

Abbott: I just said, Who’s leaving, What’s staying, and I Don’t Know is joining.

Costello: Have you got the list of next year’s leaders?

Abbott: Why yes

Costello: And does it show whether the current leaders are staying or leaving?

Abbott: Why certainly

Costello: Then looking at your list, tell me who’s leaving

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: I mean the person’s name.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The person leaving.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The leader’s name.

Abbott: Who!

Costello: The person leaving.

Abbott: Who is leaving.

Costello: I’m asking YOU who’s leaving!

Abbott: That’s the leader’s name.

Costello: That’s who's name?

Abbott: Yeah.

Costello: Well go ahead and tell me.

Abbott: That’s it.

Costello: That’s who?

Abbott: Yeah.

(Pause)

Costello: Look, you got a leader leaving the club?

Abbott: Certainly.

Costello: Who’s leaving?

Abbott: That’s right.

(Pause)

Costello: When the departing leader was sent text messages through the year asking them to get ready for a club meeting, who gets the SMS?

Abbott: Every time.

Costello: All I’m trying to find out is the leader's name that’s leaving.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The leader that gets the SMS.

Abbott: That’s it.

Costello: Who gets the Sms?

Abbott: They do! Sometimes their partner replies.

Costello: Whose partner?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: Look, all I want to know is when you get an SMS reply from the departing leader, how did they sign the Sms?

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The leader.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: How do they sign their name?

Abbott: That is how they sign it!

Costello: Who?

Abbott: Yes.

(Pause)

Costello: All I’m trying to find out is what’s the leader’s name that’s leaving.

Abbott: No, what’s staying.

Costello: I’m not asking who’s staying.

Abbott: Who is leaving!

Costello: Yes, What’s the name of the leaving leader ?!

Abbott: No, What's the name of the staying leader!

Costello: I’m not asking you who’s staying!

Abbott: Who’s leaving.

Costello: I don’t know.

Abbott: Oh, they're joining us.

(Pause)

Costello: Now how did I get onto incoming leaders?

Abbott: Well you mentioned their name.

Costello: If I mentioned their name, who did I say’s joining?

Abbott: No, Who’s leaving.

Costello: LOOK! We've got a big list of leaders: some coming, some going, some staying.

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: Now, we have a gift to give away to the leaders leaving us, and were going to now give that gift to who?

Abbott: Now that’s the first thing that you’ve said right.

Costello: I don’t even know what I’m talking about!

(Pause)

Look let me get two leaders up here [get leaving leaders up]

Now, will these guys be leaving our club, after 5 years as leaders?

Abbott: Yes

Costello: Well why didn’t you say they were leaving?

Abbott: You never asked!

Blossom [Drama about good and bad lables affecting women]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - October 26, 2019

A powerful and emotionally charged drama set to a harp and violin version of ‘Meditation’ by Massenet. (times will vary per recording) eg youtube.com/watch?v=rNNphUmKiJw

The script is tightly synced with the music’s swells, with a trained, flowing dancer. The aim is to connect the audience to the woman, feel her pain, (some will even relate, while others will be made aware of women struggling through such things) and then feel her joy as she has victory over the depths of Satan’s evilness.

This woman is to be totally broken from these initial unfair and confronting words, to the point of despair, and then is ultimately built up from the depth of Satan’s lies and see the ultimate inspiring truth: she is a loved child of God, as is every member of the audience.

Greedy-up [skit about greed and generosity]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - October 5, 2019

[Set to some fitting movie soundtrack music backing, like Indiana Jones's 'the snake pit']

Balloon-Creator pumps up balloons constantly, (8 in total on stage) not tying them off, just holding one once it’s pumped and waits, and hands it over each time someone approaches.

Gree-Dee, seeing the first balloon is ready, rushes to get the first balloon, and takes it.

Jen-Ross politely approached for the first balloon but missed and waits politely.

Gree-Dee snatches the second, third and fourth balloon as they are finished (before Jen-Ross can get their first balloon - reaching out politely each time to take it but missing out). Gree-Dee now has two balloons in each hand and looks smug.

Mostly Welcome [Church welcome about truth]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - September 28, 2019


Good morning everyone

We have an interesting topic for today’s sermon,

Actually could you please come up her sir, (organize someone who isn't the preacher to come up with Bible)

What is the title of the sermon today? (Mostly true)

That sounds interesting

And have you preached at Castle hill before? (No I haven’t)

Truthfully? You’ve never preached here before? (No)

Oh, well there you go. Thank you sir. Take a seat.

Well I very much look forward to today’s sermon today titled, what was it? (Mostly true)

Having been asked some time ago to welcome everyone this morning, I had enough time prepare something and run it by our legal team - because apparently I have said some things in previous welcome that are not considered, “traditional” to say during a welcome.

I know - I didn’t know what the church board was talking about either.

So here we go:

Two youths sit, scrolling through their phones (could have the script on it)
A is a modest, honest friend who's had a dad who had taught them a lot
B has a dad who hasn't taught them anything of note


B: Holidays hey, what should we do?

A: Do you want to go surfing?

B: You can surf?

A: Yeah, dad taught me.

B: Nah, can’t say I like the thought of going far out into the ocean.



A: Do you wanna come help me work on my go cart?

B: You’re a mechanic?

A: Not really, but dad taught me some stuff.

B: Oh. Well not really. All that motor stuff is a mystery to me.
