Noah's Arkestra

An Orchestral Children's Story


Summary: A conductor tells the children of the audience a story about Noah’s Ark and the instruments keep interrupting with sound effects - to the apparent frustration of the conductor, who eventually plays along with it.


Conductor:
“How many of you have heard the story of Noah?


[pause for a show of hands, then act surprised and disappointed as everyone already knows the story you were about to tell]


“Oh . . . all of you.


[mutters as if disappointed that this isn't a new story for the kids] “Great” 


“Well, it’s my favorite story so you’re going to hear it again.
A long time ago, God spoke to a man named Noah. He told him he needed to build a huge boat to save some of the people and animals from a big flood that was coming.
So Noah and his sons started to chop down some trees.” [makes chopping motions with arm]


Drummer: SNARE, SNARE, SNARE, (calls out:) “TIMBERERRRR” LOWER TOMS & BASS DRUM thud.


Conductor: [looks around to the drummer with a confused glare - as if to communicate ‘what was that all about’]
