Clown 1 enters whistling. She goes up to a wooden cross and begins trying to balance several eggs on the cross bar. They are real eggs so they will fall off and break, on a tarp placed under the cross. After she places each egg, she hops in place two or three times. Other clowns enter and watch for a moment. Finally, Clown 2 comes up. (more…)

The skit begins with the “normal” person (probably a children’s pastor) asking for volunteers from the audience to answer a simple question.  The three clowns leap up and clownishly race to the front, eager to answer. (more…)

TEACHER: What are you doing? INRI: The pastor said that we have to have new life. So that made me think about a butterfly. I am going to stay in this cocoon till I become a butterfly.

They start off as a fuzzy worm! TEACHER: Yes INRI, but you are not …. INRI: And then when they are ready, they spin a cocoon around themselves and they change inside the cocoon. They grow wings and antennae and … TEACHER: That’s the important part. They change. Christ helps us to change too. Butterflies remind us of that change, but we don’t have to get into a cocoon. INRI: Oh … I get it. A change on the inside! And I was almost ready … TEACHER: Ready for what? INRI: (drops the cocoon and starts juggling round margarine lids … or just toss them like frisbees, making sure the audience can see the lid tops) … Look butter …. fly! Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy! Adapt! Adapt! Adapt!
