Posted via admin

Actors For this skit, you will need eight auditioners, one stagehand, and the director. This dialogue is only meant to give you an outline to follow. Have your actors ad-lib their own lines to fit their parts.

Action Director: Thank you for coming, ladies and gentlemen. As you know, we are auditioning for disciples to follow Jesus Christ. When your number is called, please step forward to the microphone and answer the questions.
Stagehand: Number One, please. (Person Director: State your name, please.
Person Director: Why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: Thank you, Miss. Step back, please.
Stagehand: Number Two, please.
Director: State your name. (He does.) Louder, please. (Again, he does.) Thank you, Mr. ______________ why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: Thank you. You may step back.
Stagehand: Number Three, please.
Director: State your name, please. (He does.) And why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: Thank you. Step back, please.
Stageguard: Number Four.
Director: Your name, please? (He gives his name.) What? (Again, he gives his name.) O.K., Mr. ____________, why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: Thank you. Please step back.
Stagehand: Next—Number Five.
Director: Number Five, state your name. (She does.) Why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: Thank you, Miss ______________. Step back.
Stagehand: Number Six.
Director: State your name. (He does.) Why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: And what does it mean?
Person Director: Thank you, step back.
Stagehand: Number Seven, please.
Director: State your name, please. (She does.) And why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: Thank you, Miss ______________. Step back, please.
Stagehand: Number Eight, step forward.
Director: State your name, please. (very shy response) Don’t be afraid. Say your name loud and clear. (He does.) O.K., why do you want to be a disciple?
Person Director: Thank you. Step back, please. I’d like to ask all of you to leave the room for a moment, while I discuss the decision with my associate. (They all leave.)
At this point, the director mumbles something to the stagehand, and the stagehand leaves to bring back Numbers One, Two, Three, Four, and Six.

Director: I have reached my decision. When I call your number, please step forward.

Number One, Miss ______________. So you think this is a beauty contest. Being a disciple has nothing at all to do with what you look like on the outside. It’s who you have in the inside that counts. Thank you for auditioning. I’m sorry.

Number Two. Your mother made you come, Mr. ______________ ? Well, this is one thing your mother can’t make you do. You can only do it on your own. Thank you for auditioning. You may leave.

Number Three, Mr. ______________ It’s great that you can do everything. Unfortunately, being a disciple has little to do with what you can do, but rather what you can’t do. That’s why a disciple needs Jesus. Thank you for auditioning.

Number Four. So you want a job. You need the money. Well, discipleship will cost you everything you have for maybe no money gained at all. But the final reward is great. Thank you for auditioning.

Number Six. Ah yes, you follow your friends to every meeting. But the question is, Do you follow Jesus? What do you do for him?

Person Director: A disciple joyfully does whatever he can for Jesus with or without his friends. Thank you for auditioning.
Director: Stagehand. (leaves and brings in Numbers Five, Seven, and Eight)
Director: Number Five, step forward. Miss _______________. You love Jesus but can’t do anything? You have a special talent that God has given you for discipleship. Welcome to the family.

Number Eight, step forward. You want to learn more about Jesus. We’re here to help a learner learn more. You see, that’s what discipleship is all about. Welcome to the family.

Number Seven. Ah yes, the girl with no option. You’re right. You accepted Christ and to follow his command, you are a disciple. Thank you for coming and welcome to the family.

(to stagehand) Why are so many called and so few chosen?
Stagehand: Don’t worry. Look at all these people (pointing to audience). Perhaps next time, some of these folks will audition. I think we’ll get a better result.
