Gillian’s Island – part 2

$10.00

Description:

This is a sequel to Gillian’s Island, obviously. If you want to continue the story, the girls from the first sketch have arrived on the beach of a deserted island only to find that there are other people already shipwrecked there. The characters are loosely based on the TV sitcom of the 60’s.

Description

Carrie Ann is the Christian and she tries to be helpful as she runs up against a very disagreeable rich man who doesn’t want more mouths to feed. Pepper is the ditzy actress who usually has the comedy lines. The actress and the billionaire are a lot more fun if you play them just like the characters from the old show. There are sequels (one before and one after) that you can get to go with this sketch, parts 1 and 3. Or if you want all three, go to the general Christian script category and scroll till you find “Gillian’s Island – The Play”. You save a little money by buying the play rather than the three skits.

Six actors (written as 2 male and 4 female) About 15 mins.

Excerpt:

LIGHTS UP ON:
SCENE ONE:
Carrie Anne and Pepper enter a beach area with towels wrapped around themselves. They could have wet hair to show that they just swam. Pepper is wearing a swim suit with a nice cover up. C.A. is wearing the same clothes as in the other sketch. The characters in this sketch are roughly based on the characters from the popular TV show of the 60’s.
CARRIE ANNE
It was sure nice of that person to put these towels on the beach for us.
PEPPER
Oh! Can I switch towels with you? This one clashes with my ensemble.
CARRIE ANNE
Okay… whatever.
They switch.
PEPPER
I wonder where that nice person went. I hope he can help us get back home.
CARRIE ANNE
I’m not so sure it was a he. And I’m not too hopeful about getting home… being that they spelled S.O.S. on the beach.
PEPPER
Maybe it’s someone’s initials.
CARRIE ANNE
It’s not.
PEPPER
People do that, you know. They put their initials on everything. Not me.
CARRIE ANNE
Oh?
PEPPER
I don’t usually tell people my middle name. But we’ve been through so much together… we’re practically sisters! It’s Irene.
CARRIE ANNE
Irene? What’s wrong with that?
PEPPER
Pepper Irene Grant. P-I-G. No one wants PIG for their initials.
Gillian enters with two others. They look out to the audience as if looking out at the boat. Gillian is dressed more like a boy… with the silly hat. She is quite a tomboy. Mr. Powell is dressed the way a wealthy man might dress who went on a boat trip.
MR. POWELL
If that isn’t a sight for sore eyes!
GILLIAN
See? What did I tell ya? Hot diggity! We’ve been rescued!
THE DUDE
And rescued by a couple of nice girls. Well… I think it’s time we got introduced. This is Gillian… this is Mr. Powell and I’m The Dude.
CARRIE ANNE
The Dude?
MR. POWELL
Yes… he refuses to tell us his real name… so we have to call him The Dude.
THE DUDE
And who might you be?
CARRIE ANNE
My name is Carrie Anne. This is…
PEPPER
Wait. I might not need an introduction. I’m sure they’ll recognize me.
GILLIAN
Recognize you?
Pepper begins to strut around the stage like a fashion model showing off her looks.
PEPPER
Don’t let my wet hair throw you. Just imagine that it’s all blow dried.
THE DUDE
Hey! I know you!
PEPPER
See?
THE DUDE
Yeah… you were in that one commercial… what was that about again?
PEPPER
(not happy)
That’s it! I’m getting a new agent.
She stops strutting and pouts.
CARRIE ANNE
She’s Pepper Grant.
(sarcastically)
The Actress!
MR. POWELL
Well… we are so very happy to meet you both and very grateful that you have come to rescue us. Let us just get our things and we’ll be ready to go in no time.
CARRIE ANNE
I’m afraid you don’t understand. We can’t rescue you. We drifted here from Catalina. There is no key and we lost our captain.
GILLIAN
Oh no! Did he go overboard?
PEPPER
No. He turned out to be a she… and she left us while we were sleeping.
CARRIE ANNE
We weren’t tied down good and we drifted. We have no idea where we are.
GILLIAN
How did you keep from crashing into those rocks? Our boat hit them pretty hard and that tore it up big time!
CARRIE ANNE
We have an anchor.
PEPPER
That’s right. Carrie Anne told me to throw it over the side into the water… and then the boat just stopped. It was like magic. Oh! And we also prayed. I haven’t done a lot of that before, but I highly recommend it.
MR. POWELL
So, you’re saying that you can’t drive that boat?
CARRIE ANNE
Even if we could get it started and someone was able to drive it… which way would we go? I have no idea where we are and how to get to Catalina. Besides, I think it’s low on fuel. We had stopped to refuel when we drifted out.
MR. POWELL
Well… this was a huge disappointment. What good are you? Just two more mouths to feed.
GILLIAN
Hey! Mr. Powell! These girls are our guests! You’re not being very kind!
MR. POWELL
I didn’t invite them!
Mrs. Powell enters
MRS. POWELL
Theodore, darling! I’ve been looking all over for you! What are you doing down here on the beach?
MR. POWELL
I thought we were going to be rescued, Sweetikins. But instead, we have two more people crashed on this island to share what little food we have. I don’t want to share my food with them!
MRS. POWELL
Oh… you poor dear! Why don’t you come and lie down in the shade? Mummy will make it all better.
MR. POWELL
Could you make me one of those coconut and mango drinks? I’m feeling one of my headaches coming on!
He begins to walk around holding his head and stumbling as she follows him trying to help him. He over does it very melodramatic and over the top. They circle around the stage as he moans.
MR. POWELL
I thought we were going to be rescued! I want my rubber ducky!
MRS. POWELL
Of course, darling! Anything you want.
They exit together
