Whacha Gonna Do?

Theme: Christianity is a choice that every individual makes. (Joshua 1:9)

Length: 3-4 minutes

Characters:
5 Clowns

Setting/Props:
There is no particular setting for this skit. Along with clown costumes, you will need two road signs: NARROW and WIDE. Near the NARROW sign you should tape a crosswalk on the floor. You’ll also need a pocket size cross that’s big enough to be visible to the audience.

Synopsis:
When the clowns come to a fork in the road on a journey towards eternal bliss, they must determine which way to go. Exaggerated pointing accompanies the question: Is it this way or that way? And the final answer is of course—the one with the cross walk.

Excerpt:
Slobber, Goober, and Rufus ENTER, walking in single file. Slobber stops abruptly, turns, and signals for the others to stop.

Slobber: Whoa!

Goober halts, but Rufus isn’t paying attention. He crashes into Goober who crashes into Slobber and they all crash to the floor.

Slobber: (Complains as he gets up) I said, Whoa.

Rufus:(scratches head puzzled) Oh.

Goober: Where are we going, anyway?

Slobber: I told you, we’re on a journey toward eternal bliss. But we’ve got a problem. There’s a fork in the road.

Goober and Rufus both examine the ground carefully around the signs.

Rufus: I don’t see a fork. (He brightens and pulls a spoon out of his pocket) But I do have a spoon.

Slobber: Not that kind of fork. The kind of fork where the road splits and goes in two different directions. Now we have to make a decision. Do we go this way (exaggerated point in each direction) or do we go that way?
