Disappointing Drama

 Brief: a drama skit on the Great Disappointment in 1844.
Written: Scott Wegener
Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church,  October 22, 2016


The preacher of the day comes in the regular entrance to the church, behind the congregating, and shouts "Jesus is coming, today's the day!" And two or three musicians follow, starting happily into the hymn 'When we all get to heaven', walking down the isle behind the preacher.

A Mother with Whiskers

 RECORD, September 2016 

It needs to be said: a father is not just a mother with whiskers. In addition to all the parallel responsibilities there is actually a lot more pressure on being a father than being a mother.
Granted we miss child-birthing experiences, from obstetrician visits, to morning sickness, epidural needles, stretch marks, caesareans, 20-hour labours, nine-pound (4 kg) babies . . .

Perfect Unemployment

 Signs of the Times, August 2016 

Imagine if we all got along. What an amazing world this would be to live in. No arguments, no fights, no greed, no hate, no lies. Almost sounds like the perfect society to live in, don’t you think?

However, before you run off and reconcile with all your nemeses in a quest for world peace, there’s one major problem with this dream: unemployment.

Can you imagine the job losses if everyone were nice all the time, in all circumstances?

Brief: a fun Mother's Day skit.
Written: Scott Wegener
Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist church,  May 7, 2016
  • Announcer
  • Superhero 1 
  • Super Hero 2 (or more) 
  • Lady Assistant [a mum]
  • Reporter
  • Photographer(s)
Announcer at pulpit, reporters and photographers squatting down the front.

Announcer:  Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for attending the award ceremony where we crown our nation's Superhero of the year. Before we continue, let's have the nominees join me up the front. Give them a round of applause!

[Heroic 'Ben Hur' Music starts] A lady assistant, holding a medal on a plush pillow, leads two (or more) super heroes up onto the stage. Photographers take flash photos. and a couple during the opening speech also. The Superheroes stand shoulder-to-shoulder on one side of the announcer, the lady assistant stands the other side, not drawing attention to herself, ready for presenting the medal.

Those nominated don't do what they do for the glory, but just because they want peace and safety in our society.
As you all know, this award is not easy to earn. It takes acts of endurance, acts of selflessness, acts of foresight, acts of doing things no one else wants to do - even though they've already been working hard all day.

Let's meet some of the nominees;

Parable of the 10 Virgin Airlines

Brief: a children's story to complement a sermon on the parable of the ten virgins.
Written: Scott Wegener
Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church, 23 April, 2016

I'm going to tell you a story about a very Rich man. Let's call him RITCH-ard.
Richard was having a party. And he was
so popular there were 10 plane loads of people coming to his party.

[I need 10 kids to be aeroplanes...]

As all the planes approached the airport of the city where the party was being held there happened to be a large thunderstorm around the airport.

[Can you all make the sound of a thunder storm?] Or [drums or wobble cardboard]

So all the planes had to go into a holding pattern.

[Do you know what a plane holding pattern is? That's where planes fly safely in circles until it's safe to land at their destination.]

Now, 5 of the planes had filled up their fuel tanks to full, even though their flights weren't very far. They happily flew around and around and around waiting for the storm to clear.
The other 5 planes however only put in enough fuel to safely get to the airport and allow for a few circuits if there was fog or a little storm .
BUT, after 40minutes of circling these 5 planes had to go to the next closest airport to refuel.

So 5 of the planes headed out to land at the other airport to fill up.
