Narrator: Once upon a time there was a very happy group of clowns. (clowns all greet each other with handshakes and hugs) They lived in a wonderful community called Rehoboth Beach and attended a weekly service at a church called Epworth (clowns kneel in prayer). Each year they would gather together in the fall, once the weather turned chilly, (clowns shiver with cold) for a special dinner (Clowns bring table on stage). They worked very hard preparing food (some clowns hold dishes with silly food item like cotton candy, popcorn…..) and drinks (clowns hold up soda bottles filled with bright green and pink liquid) and others made festive decorations for the dinner (other clowns show silly decorations). (Note: Each Clown can bring a “dish” which the narrator will call out as the clowns show them: Clown Stuffing, Roast Rubber Chicken, Pumpkin Pie with real pumpkin on top……) But, despite all the hard work, they looked forward to this annual dinner as a time of wonderful fun and fellowship. (clowns gather around table, hug, hold hands) (more…)
