Coming Attractions

$10.00

Description:

This short puppet script could also be done as a live skit with actors. Five kids have gone to the movies and they are watching the previews. We see them react to horror film previews, romance, comedy and then finally a science fiction “end of the world” type of movie preview that leads them into a short discussion on the second coming of Christ and the final judgment.

 

Description

Five puppet characters. About 7 or 8 minutes.
Excerpt:
SPANKY
(Starting to get scared)
What is this? What’s going on?
Slinky is watching, mouth dropped open and shaking with nerves and fear. He continues to shake until they all scream.
FRED
I think it is a scary movie. I’ll probably never be able to see it because I can’t go to scary movies.
BINKY
They’re called horror flicks.
INKY
Is that because they’re HORRible?
BINKY
HA HA! That’s so funny, I forgot to laugh!
SPANKY
But why are they called trailers? Do they have wheels? Do people live inside them? Can you park them in a row?
FRED
Just watch! Woah! Who’s that? What’s happening?
INKY
Nothing’s going to happen…. don’t be scared.
FRED
I’m not scared!
SPANKY
You sound scared.
BINKY
Yeah… you do. You sound really scared.
FRED
Well, I’m not!
The music suddenly builds and then a loud shreaking sound…
ALL
AAAAAHHHHH!
The popcorn is thrown in the air.
SPANKY
That really scared me!
SLINKY
Now I have to go and get more popcorn! (exits)
INKY
And I have to go to the bathroom! (exits)
BINKY
Look! They’re starting another one.
SPANKY
I hope it ain’t another horror movie. I don’t like to be scared like that. I think those movies are bad and we shouldn’t watch them.
FRED
You’re probably right. I’ll probably never see any of these movies. I’m only allowed to see…
BINKY
It’s a chick flick!
FRED
What’s that mean?
BINKY
It’s all romantic and stuff and only girls like those. My mom watches them all the time. She makes my dad watch them with her. But I know he really hates it.
SPANKY
Oohh… I hate those!
BINKY
See… those two people are in love or something…
FRED
Oh no! He’s not going to kiss her, is he? Gross!
SPANKY
I can’t look!
FRED
Yuck! Get me out of here!!
The other two re-enter.
INKY
What’s going on? Where are you going?
FRED
It’s a romance! You know… a chick flick!
SPANKY
You don’t want to watch that!
SLINKY
Why not?
BINKY
I’m just going to go and get a drink of water.
FRED
Me, too.
SPANKY
I’m going to the bathroom!
The three puppets exit. The other two sit and look at the screen.
INKY AND SLINKY
Eeeewww!
INKY
Popcorn?
SLINKY
Thanks. I’m just going to look at the popcorn for a little while. You know, because I don’t want to watch that stuff and the popcorn is more interesting.
Both puppets stare at the box of popcorn
INKY
Yeah, me too. You can tell me when this one is over.
SLINKY
No I can’t. I’m looking at the popcorn, too.
INKY
Well, that’s dumb. How are we going to know when it’s over if neither of us is looking?
SLINKY
That’s a very good point.
INKY
I know. That’s why I said it. Wait. They’re laughing. Maybe it’s a funny. Let’s watch it.
They both turn and look back at the screen at the same time
SLINKY
A what? Did you say “a funny”? Don’t you mean, comedy? Funnies are in the paper.
INKY
Whatever. It’s not the same preview. This one is a funny
